Guy Ritchie takes on the ultimate tough guy in KING ARTHUR: LEGEND OF THE SWORD, lending his dynamic style to the new epic fantasy adventure, which stars Charlie Hunnam as the eponymous ruler of the Brits. 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.
The film also stars Astrid Bergès-Frisbey (Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides) as Mage; Djimon Hounsou (Blood Diamond, In America) as Bedivere; Aidan Gillen (HBO’s “Game of Thrones”) as Goosefat Bill; and Eric Bana (Star Trek, Munich) as Arthur’s father, King Uther Pendragon.
