EW also revealed an interview with Charlie Hunnam, who discussed his experience making the movie and working with director Guy Ritchie.
“It was challenging, to begin with because there was an uncertainty about the tone. Guy’s [initial] intention was to make something that was outside of his wheelhouse, and make a more classic, straightforward, and somewhat somber film — which is obviously not what we ended up with.”
When young 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 (Charlie Hunnam) 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.
King Arthur: Legend of the Sword is directed by Guy Ritchie and stars Charlie Hunnam, Jude Law, Annabelle Wallis, Eric Bana, Astrid Bergès-Frisbey, Hermione Corfield, Katie McGrath, Millie Brady, Djimon Hounsou, Aidan Gillen, Georgina Campbell, Poppy Delevingne, Mikael Persbrandt, and Peter Ferdinando.
The film will land in theaters on May 19.
