The new trailer for Guy Ritchie’s ‘King Arthur’ looks bonkers
It takes a particular kind of filmmaker to simultaneously aim for gritty realism and elaborate fantasy nonsense at the same time. That filmmaker is Guy Ritchie, and his latest project is King Arthur: Legend of the Sword.
We got our first look at King Arthur during Comic Con 2016, with a trailer that ticked every box for a Guy Ritchie movie. If you ever wanted to see Arthurian legends reimagined as a London gangster movie with homoerotic boxing scenes, this was your jam.
Now, the second trailer elaborates on the film’s fantasy side, focusing on Excalibur and giving us a better look at Jude Law‘s appropriately ridiculous villain role.
This educational historical drama is due out on May 12, six weeks before 2017’s other extremely factual King Arthur movie, Transformers: The Last Knight.
