There’s been a couple delays for Guy Ritchie’s King Arthur: Legend of the Sword, but it now seems to be staying at a May 12th release date. We recently got a look at a new trailer for the film, and now we have a new character poster to go with it. The poster features Jude Law as the evil Vortigern with text that reads “Temptation blackens the heart.” Check it out below:
Of course this new poster stands in contrast to the poster featuring King Arthur himself (Charlie Hunnam) with the tagline, “From nothing comes a King.”
King Arthur: Legend of the Sword stars Charlie Hunnam as King Arthur, Àstrid Bergès-Frisbey as Guinevere, Djimon Hounsou as Sir Bedivere, Aidan Gillen as Goosefat Bill Wilson, Jude Law as Vortigern and Eric Bana as Uther Pendragon.
The young Arthur runs the back passages of Londonium with his crew, not knowing his royal lineage until he grabs Excalibur. Instantly confronted by the sword’s influence, Arthur is forced to make up his mind. Joining the rebellion and an enigmatic young woman named Guinevere, he must learn to address her and eventually understand her magic weapon, deal with his demons and unite the people to defeat the dictator Vortigern, the man who murdered his parents and stole his crown to become king.
King Arthur: Legend of the Sword releases on May 12. If you missed the trailer watch it at the end of this past. Keep checking Heroic Hollywood for any more information on this retelling of the famous myth!
