This trailer for Guy Ritchie’s King Arthur: Legend of The Sword is the most Guy Ritchie thing you will see all week. It’s loaded with slo-mo, non-period specific music, and oozing with enough machismo to fill a Hummer’s gas tank.
It looks like a lot of fun…
Robbed of his birthright, Arthur comes up the hard way in the back alleys of the city. But once he pulls the sword from the stone, he is forced to acknowledge his true legacy – whether he likes it or not.
The jury’s still out on whether or not Charlie Hunnam is a movie star. Tom Hardy and Chris Hemsworth might have gotten in his way these past few years. King Arthur: Legend of The Sword (stupid title) should go a long way to solving that conundrum. And fans of the music video Guy Ritchie aesthetic should certainly dig this one.
Aside from Hunnam, we have a gleefully hammy Jude Law – who is enjoying this second act in his career playing gleefully hammy characters. There’s also Eric Bana, Katie McGrath, Hermione Corfield, Annabelle Wallis, and Djimon Hounsou. It will hit theaters May 12.
