Arthur & Merlin: Knights of Camelot
First look at the Arthurian actioner.


The legend of King Arthur has inspired films as disparate as John Boorman's Excalibur and Monty Python and the Holy Grail, to the recent big budget Hollywood take courtesy of director Guy Ritchie.

Director Giles Alderson takes on the legend now with Arthur & Merlin: Knights of Camelot, which stars Richard Short and Game of Thrones' Richard Brake as the titular monarch and wizard respectively.

The film follows Arthur as he returns to England from war in 463 AD to find himself forced to defend his throne from various rival factions. Olivia Bernstone, Ronan Summers, Joe Egan, Stella Stocker and Emily Haigh also star.

Signature Entertainment presents Arthur & Merlin: Knights of Camelot on DVD and Digital HD from July 13th. You can pre-order at Amazon here.

The official synopsis reads:

A tale of power, betrayal, lust and revenge, ARTHUR & MERLIN: KNIGHTS OF CAMELOT tells of a man battling to fulfil his destiny to become the King his nation needs. Starring Richard Short (Mary Kills People) as Arthur and The Night King himself Richard Brake (Game of Thrones, Batman Begins) as Merlin. The year 463 AD. England is a land divided. A land in need of a legend. King Arthur has been absent for five long years, fighting a war abroad that has stricken his knights, left his throne defenceless and his queen at the mercy of Mordred, his illegitimate son. He must return home fast, facing dark and dangerous threats from all sides. But as he fights to preserve Camelot and all that he holds dear, the toughest conflict will be with himself. Guided by the legendary wizard Merlin, Arthur must strive to become the king that his nation needs. It is the story of a legend, before the legend was told.
