Guy Ritchie’s King Arthur: Legend of the Sword stars Charlie Hunnam (Sons of Anarchy, Pacific Rim) as Arthur Pendragon. The film is based on Thomas Mallory’s Le Morte d’Arthur.
The bold new story introduces a streetwise young Arthur who runs the back alleys of Londonium with his gang, unaware of the life he was born for until he grasps hold of the sword Excalibur—and with it, his future. Instantly challenged by the power of Excalibur, Arthur is forced to make some hard choices. Throwing in with the Resistance and a mysterious young woman named Guinevere, he must learn to master the sword, face down his demons and unite the people to defeat the tyrant Vortigern, who stole his crown and murdered his parents, and become King.
Astrid Berges-Frisbey is Guinevere and Eric Bana is Uther Pendragon. Jude Law plays Arthur’s uncle, Vortigern. Djimon Honsou also stars in the film.
