“Listen to me, do as I tell you. I need to get you and the boy away from here.” “Did you see everything you needed to see?” “I saw enough.” Raised in the streets born to be King, 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.
“You wanted the prophecy. This is your prophecy.” “Behold, the man who pulled sword from stone.” 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. “For the first time there’s something you don’t know. Something nobody told you.”
“I woke up from a nightmare then me and the lads took care of business.” Starring with Hunnam and Oscar nominee Law are Astrid Bergès-Frisbey as Mage; Oscar nominee Djimon Hounsou as Bedivere; Aidan Gillen as Goosefat Bill; and Eric Bana as Arthur’s father, King Uther Pendragon, the cast also includes: Annabelle Wallis, David Beckham, Katie McGrath, and Tom Wu.
Guy Ritchie directed the film from a screenplay is by Joby Harold and Guy Ritchie and Lionel Wigram, story by David Dobkin and Joby Harold. The film is produced by Oscar winner Akiva Goldsman, Joby Harold, Tory Tunnell, and Steve Clark-Hall, Guy Ritchie and Lionel Wigram. David Dobkin and Bruce Berman are executive producers.
“He’s a little bit rough around the edges, but he’s basically a survivor. He’s a hustler,” Hunnam tells EW about his character. “He’s a street kid. There’s definitely a harder edge to him than people would imagine. It’s sort of classic Guy Ritchie stuff.” ‘King Arthur: Legend of the Sword’ was released in theaters on May 12, 2017.
