Placing Charlie Hunnam in the lead role was a fairly astute move. The actor seems perfect for the grimy, full-bearded experience of becoming a king. In this new spot he is given the spotlight and runs with it, once with a neat shoulder-mounted camera. There is a whole host of ridiculous action shots, but we’ve come to expect a certain visual flourish from Ritchie. It seems he won’t disappoint.
Alongside Hunnam we have Astrid Berges-Frisbey, Jude Law, Eric Bana, and Djimon Honsou. Hermione Corfield, recently seen in xXx: Return of Xander Cage, also appears.
The film is set for release on the 12th of May. Check out the new TV spot below.
King Arthur Movie TV Spot
King Arthur Movie Synopsis
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.
