Warner Bros Pictures just released a new short (just 45 seconds long) trailer for King Arthur: Legend of the Sword. Directed by Guy Ritchie, this new trailer for King Arthur shows off a few new clips of action scenes and a shirtless Charlie Hunnam (Sons of Anarchy) backed by a voice-over by Hunnam. “I am here now because of you. You created me and because of that I bless you,” says Hunnam’s Arthur.

The cast also includes Game of Thrones‘ Aidan Gillen and Michael McElhatton along with Jude Law, Astrid Bergès-Frisbey, Eric Bana, and Djimon Hounsou. Joby Harold, Guy Ritchie, and Lionel Wigram wrote the screenplay and produced the film with Aiva Goldsman, Tory Tunnell, and Steve Clark-Hall. David Dobkin and Bruce Berman executive produced. Warner Bros will open the action drama in theaters on May 12, 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.
