The first minute of the official trailer for Warner Bros Pictures’ King Arthur: Legend of the Sword confirms this is a King Arthur movie unlike any other. It’s also obvious from that first minute that this is a Guy Ritchie action film. Sons of Anarchy‘s Charlie Hunnam stars alongside Game of Thrones‘ Aidan Gillen and Michael McElhatton as well as Jude Law, Astrid Bergès-Frisbey, Eric Bana, and Djimon Hounsou. King Arthur: Legend of the Sword opens in theaters on March 24, 2017.
The Plot: 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.
