After having its release date pushed back several times, Warner Bros. is finally ready to unveil the very first trailer for King Arthur: Legend of the Sword.
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 stars Charlie Hunnam (Pacific Rim, Sons of Anarchy) as Arthur, Àstrid Bergès-Frisbey (Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides) as Guinevere, Oscar-nominee Djimon Hounsou (Guardians of the Galaxy) as Bedivere, Aidan Gillen (Game of Thrones) as Goosefat Bill Wilson, Oscar-nominee Jude Law (Sherlock Holmes) as Vortigern, Annabelle Wallis (The Mummy) as Maid Maggie, and Eric Bana (Hulk) as Uther Pendragon.
Guy Ritchie directs the film from a screenplay by Joby Harold and Guy Ritchie & Lionel Wigram, story by Joby Harold. The film is produced by Oscar-winner Akiva Goldsman, Joby Harold, Tory Tunnell, Lionel Wigram, Guy Ritchie and Steve Clark-Hall. David Dobkin and Bruce Berman are executive producers.
King Arthur: Legend of the Sword will arrive in theaters on March 24, 2017.
