A new image from King Arthur: Legend of the Sword has been released. It features Charlie Hunnam as King Arthur and he’s holding the sword of Excalibur atop what looks like a large rock. Maybe he’s about to give a speech of go into battle?
You can check out the image below.
The film is another take on King Arthur’s legend, and with Guy Ritchie director, it’ll hopefully provide some new story threads and dynamics as we’ve seen several adaptations regarding the Excalibur myth.
You can read the synopsis for the film below.
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.
King Arthur: Legend of the Sword stars Charlie Hunnam, Jude Law, Supergirl’s Katie McGrath, Eric Bana, and Djimon Hounsou.
The film will be in theaters May 12, 2017.
