Director Guy Ritchie and star Charlie Hunnam explore the legend of King Arthur.
King Arthur is a tale that has been told as long as there have been tales to tell. When it was announced that Guy Ritchie (Snatch, Sherlock Holmes) was going to put his stamp on the Arthurian legend, anticipation soared.
When Sons of Anarchy breakout Charlie Hunnam was cast in the title role, the project hit a new level of cinematic awesomeness.
This is not your parents’ King Arthur. Heck, it’s not even your great-great-grandparents’ story of the born king who pulled the sword Excalibur from a rock when no one else could, thus revealing the next true leader of England. The film is faithful to the birth of a legend, but has Ritchie’s trademark directorial stamp strewn throughout. It’s action-packed and breathtakingly shot in a manner that could give you whiplash, and that is a very good thing for fans enamored by Ritchie’s unique vision.
Hunnam and Ritchie dish their deeply personal experience of making King Arthur: The Legend of the Sword, when they first became aware of Camelot and reveal the biggest challenge of living in Guy Ritchie’s medieval world.
Also, will Hunnam ever return to TV?
