Watch The Official Trailer For Guy Ritchie’s ‘King Arthur: Legend of the Sword’


Director Guy Ritchie managed to make Sherlock Holmes cool again in his films Sherlock Holmes and Sherlock Holmes: A Game of Shadows, could he do the same with an even older story?

He seems to think so and if ‘King Arthur: Legend of the Sword’ is anything like the official trailer above, we think so too. In the film, King Uther Pendragon (Eric Bana) has to take his wife and young son to safety but is murdered by Vortigern Pendragon (Jude Law). The young son and rightful king is Arthur (Charlie Hunnam), and despite finding out his history, has no idea of his birthright. Legend has it, the true king shall pull the sword Excalibur from the stone, and regain power. Arthur is forced to become king, whether he wants to or not.
