Guy Ritchie Takes KING ARTHUR to The Streets in New Trailer

Knights of the Round Table, assemble! The newest trailer for director Guy Ritchie‘s ride into Arthurian legend has arrived! King Arthur: Legend of the Sword is the latest adaptation of the famous and revered British legend. You better believe that Ritchie’s distinct wildcard style will throw all of the previous Camelot conventions out the window in this planned film series–get ready for more swearing and less singing, for starters. Check out the latest epic trailer above, via Collider. If a rugged Charlie Hunnam and Led Zeppelin’s “Babe I’m Gonna Leave You” don’t do it for you, then we don’t know what will.

Much like his previously adapted Sherlock Holmes series, Ritchie’s balls-to-the-wall approach to the classic tale will focus on the more mature side of King Arthur. We’ve seen bits of backstory in previous trailers, but this latest reveals a heavy dose of major childhood trauma for the young prince thanks to his uncle, Vortigern (Jude Law), who murders his parents and steals the throne. You know, typical Medieval stuff. After growing up on the streets, this version of Arthur isn’t too quick to answer the call of Excalibur and seems extremely weary of royalty.

He’s eventually joined by Arthurian staples like Sir Bedivere (Djimon Hounsou) and Merlin (Kamil Lemieszewski), with a mage-type Guinevere (Astrid Bergès-Frisbey), and Aidan Gillen from Game of Thrones as Goosefat Bill Wilson, a conniving newcomer to the legend. The casting seems right for a Ritchie film, so we’re hoping everything else falls into place. King Arthur: Legend of the Sword opens in theaters on May 12, 2017.
