Here’s the first poster from Guy Ritchie’s King Arthur: Legend of the Sword which sees Sons of Anarchy star Charlie Hunnam standing proudly as the title character with the slogan ‘From Nothing Comes a King’.
The movie shot here in the UK on the the backlot of the Warner Bros. Studio in London and has an all-star cast which includes alongside Hunnam includes Astrid Bergès-Frisbey, Djimon Hounsou, Aidan Gillen, Jude Law and Eric Bana.
King Arthur: Legend of the Sword is set for release in May this year and you can click the poster to enlarge.
Also joining the cast is relative newcomer Hermione Corfield who we spoke to at the recent xXx: Return of Xander Cage junket and you can see here.
Following the pretty dreadful reception received by Ritchie’s last movie (The Man from U.N.C.L.E), fans of the Lock Stock and Two Smoking Barrels directing are hoping for much better things with this legendary tale.
King Arthur: Legend of the Sword Movie Poster
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.
Starring with Hunnam (FX’s “Sons of Anarchy”) and Oscar nominee Law (“Cold Mountain,” “The Talented Mr. Ripley”) are Astrid Bergès-Frisbey (“Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides”) as Mage; Oscar nominee Djimon Hounsou (“Blood Diamond,” “In America”) as Bedivere; Aidan Gillen (HBO’s “Game of Thrones”) as Goosefat Bill; and Eric Bana (“Star Trek”) as Arthur’s father, King Uther Pendragon.
