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. We’ve now got our first official images from the film.

Orphaned as an infant and raised by three prostitutes in the 5th century version of London, this Arthur is more of a street-wise hood, who looks after the people living in his tiny corner of the world. “He’s a little bit rough around the edges, but he’s basically a survivor. He’s a hustler,” Hunnam told EW. “He’s a street kid. There’s definitely a harder edge to him than people would imagine. It’s sort of classic Guy Ritchie stuff.”

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.

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.

The film is due out in 2016.
