You thought you knew the legend of Excalibur, King Arthur’s mighty weapon. You were wrong. SNATCH director Guy Ritchie reinvents the sword and sorcery genre with his trademark two-fisted energy, bringing us a startling new vision of King Arthur before he ascended to the throne. A street thief and brawler, this Arthur (played by SONS OF ANARCHY’s Charlie Hunnam) is nothing like the noble king you’ve read about. But when he pulls the fabled sword from the stone, he is forced to confront his own regal heritage - whether he likes it or not. With grungy armies doing massive battle, KING ARTHUR: LEGEND OF THE SWORD is a retelling of the Arthurian legend for a post-GAME OF THRONES world. By infusing this classic tale with a modern zing, Ritchie brings us right into the filthy streets of old Londinium and immerses us in a world on the edge of becoming Camelot. Thrilling, fun and wryly inventive, KING ARTHUR: LEGEND OF THE SWORD brings Britain’s greatest myth to pulsing 21st century life!
