#TRAILERCHEST: Charlie Hunnam and Jude Law go to war in King Arthur: Legend Of The Sword

Rory Cashin

This is the story we all know, but not as we know it…

Welcome to #TrailerChest, where we’re taking a sneak peek at the brand new trailer for King Arthur: Legend Of The Sword.

Plot’s it all about?

Hunnam plays a young Arthur, a man with greatness put upon him when he is the only one who can remove the magical sword in the stone, and become king. So far, so “Haven’t we heard this before?” Well, yes, but this one is filled with huge monsters, even bigger war scenes, and Jude Law chewing the scenery as a bad-guy so evil he’s practically twirling a mustache.

From the director of the recent Robert Downey Jr takes on Sherlock Holmes, as well as the likes of Lock, Stock & Two Smoking Barrels and Snatch, this is an updated look at a classic story, giving modern audiences a vibrant twist on a well-worn tale. And apparently this is just the first entry in a multi-part franchise in the making.

Consider us very excited.
