King Arthur: Legend of the Sword reboots the titular legend yet again, this time with Charlie Hunnam in the lead role, and he’s also joined by his Queer As Folk co-star Aiden Gillen as Goosefat Bill, so it’d be great if they get a number of scenes together.
Unfortunately, Guy Ritchie is in the director’s chair, but the cast also includes Annabelle Wallis, Katie McGrath, Jude Law, Tom Wu, Djimon Hounsou and Eric Bana.
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. He joins the rebellion and a shadowy young woman named Guinevere, he must learn to understand the 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 was originally due to release in the UK on March 24th, but has been put back to May 12th. However, like the initial date, this is also a day after most places in Europe, although the same date as the US.
