First Trailer For Guy Ritchie’s ‘King Arthur’ Debuts At SDCC


King Arthur

The first look at Guy Ritchie’s King Arthur: Legend of the Sword was shown during the Warner Bros. panel at San Diego Comic-Con today. The brand new footage gave us more character details and a better look at Charlie Hunnam in the leading role as King Arthur. Hunnam is playing Arthur and Jude Law will be playing opposite as Vortigern.

It’s clear from the trailer that Ritchie is putting a unique tone on this classic tale.

You can watch the trailer below.


With Ritchie directing this film, it’s clear that it will be a different take on the traditional “sword in the stone” story. Hunnam opened up about how this version of Arthur would be different from the classic story. Maybe even borrowing from the street smarts that he embodied while filming FX’s Sons of Anarchy.

“He’s a bit rough around the edges, but he’s basically a survivor. There’s definitely a harder edge than people would imagine.”

King Arthur: Legend of the Sword stars Charlie Hunnam as the titular knight, Àstrid Bergès-Frisbey as Guinevere, Jude Law as Vortigen, Eric Bana as Uther Pendragon, Djimon Hounsou as Bedivere and more.

    Littlefinger, Bana Hulk, Roose Bolton and hammy Jude Law?

    I’m so in.

    I love ‘Trailer Day’ at SDCC.

    It’s like Show and Tell for geeks.

    Good thing most studios have figured out that their trailers would leak anyway, so now they just release it online as well rather than having a grainy cell-phone recorded version (in portrait,…of course) floating around making their movie look bad.

    This looks good, but also bad… but in a good way?

    I love Guy Richie’s filmmaking sensibilities.

    This could be good. I like that Medieval Britain is portrayed as a magical fantasy land. On the other hand, one could not grow up poor and become a knight in adulthood. Learning the horsemanship and the martial arts required training at least from adolescence. A poor person could not possibly afford a horse, since one horse cost twenty head of cattle.

    Excited for this movie. We haven’t had a proper King Arthur story in 35 years (since 1981’s Excalibur). I don’t count that garbage Clive Owen version which felt absolutely nothing like a King Arthur movie.
