I’ve not been completely sold on the idea of Snatch director, Guy Ritchie tackling Arthurian legend, but I’ve been wanting to keep an open mind to the new film because of the cast. We’ve got Charlie Hunnam as Arthur and Jude Law as his evil uncle, Vortigern.
I’m still having trouble finding a way that this film isn’t going to be more goofy than good. It’s definitely a different take than any other King Athur story than we’ve ever seen on film. It will be interesting to see if the audiences will take to it.
King Arthur: Legend of the Sword opens in theaters on May 12, 2017 and also stars Astrid Bergès-Frisbey, Eric Bana, Djimon Hounsou, and Aidan Gillen.
