New Teaser Poster Unveiled For KING ARTHUR: LEGEND OF THE SWORD

Warner Bros. have released a new teaser one-sheet for Guy Ritchie's upcoming Arthurian actioner.

It's a big year for Charlie Hunnam. As well as starring in James Gray's Amazon adventure The Lost City of Z and a remake of 1973's Papillon, he takes the title role in Guy Ritchie's King Arthur: Legend of the Sword, which Warner Bros. are hoping will kick-start a franchise based on the Arthurian legends. The film is in UK/ROI cinemas May 12th.

The official synopsis reads:

Acclaimed filmmaker Guy Ritchie brings his dynamic style to the epic fantasy action adventure “King Arthur: Legend of the Sword.” Starring Charlie Hunnam in the title role, the film is an iconoclastic take on the classic Excalibur myth, tracing Arthur’s journey from the streets to the throne.

When the child Arthur’s father is murdered, Vortigern (Jude Law), Arthur’s uncle, seizes the crown. Robbed of his birthright and with no idea who he truly is, Arthur comes up the hard way in the back alleys of the city. But once he pulls the sword from the stone, his life is turned upside down and he is forced to acknowledge his true legacy…whether he likes it or not.
