SDCC16: Guy Ritchie’s ‘King Arthur: Legend of The Sword’ Pulls A Trailer
Next is WB’s presentation for Guy Ritchie’s King Arthur: Legend of The Sword.
Charlie Hunnam is on stage folks.
Here’s the first trailer which people aren’t seemingly digging.
Devin from Birth.Movies.Death claims the film was reshot twice, not a good sign for the Guy Ritchie film. The film was originally set for release this weekend actually before it was delayed until 2017.
Next up: KING ARTHUR. I heard they reshot the whole movie twice.

Acclaimed filmmaker Guy Ritchie brings his dynamic style to the epic fantasy action adventure “King Arthur: Legend of the Sword.” Starring Charlie Hunnam in the title role, the film is an iconoclastic take on the classic Excalibur myth, tracing Arthur’s journey from the streets to the throne.
When the child Arthur’s father is murdered, Vortigern (Jude Law), Arthur’s uncle, seizes the crown. Robbed of his birthright and with no idea who he truly is, Arthur comes up the hard way in the back alleys of the city. But once he pulls the sword from the stone, his life is turned upside down and he is forced to acknowledge his true legacy…whether he likes it or not.
The bold new story introduces a streetwise young Arthur who runs the back alleys of Londonium with his gang, unaware of the life he was born for until he grasps hold of the sword Excalibur—and with it, his future. Instantly challenged by the power of Excalibur, Arthur is forced to make some hard choices. Throwing in with the Resistance and a mysterious young woman named Guinevere, he must learn to master the sword, face down his demons and unite the people to defeat the tyrant Vortigern, who stole his crown and murdered his parents, and become King.
Charlie Hunnam leads the film as Arthur Pendragon, with the rest of the cast including Astrid Bergès-Frisbey plays Guinevere, Jude Law plays the villainous Vortigern, Eric Bana as King Uther Pendragon, Djimon Hounsou as Resistance leader Bedivere, and Aidan Gillen as Goosefat Bill.
King Arthur: Legend of The Sword‘s release date is set for March 24th, 2017.
