'King Arthur: Legend of the Sword' Official Trailer with Charlie Hunnam

Guy Ritchie brings more style than the standard directed-by-committee filmmaking that usually plagued tentpoles.

The first part of the trailer focuses on Arthur's past, when his father takes his family away from castle as it is attacked by a group of rebels. That said, all inevitably hinges on the success of the first film. The film also stars Jude Law as a ruler Vortigern, who is anxious about a legend stating a sword will be drawn from the stone by the true king. Sons of Anarchy's Charlie Hunnam stars as Arthur and The Young Pope's Jude Law co-stars as Vortigern, Arthur's uncle.

Despite facing delay-after-delay (a normally telling sign the studio doesn't quite know what to do with a project), there's a few factors that still have us anticipating King Arthur: Legend of the Sword.

Check out the new trailer below. Arthur has a rough upbringing, living in the alleys of the city, but once he pulls the sword from the stone, he's forced to acknowledge his legacy.

Besides offering more insight into Arthur's destiny as a born king, the new trailer offers a quick look at Arthurian fantastical creatures, which include the Lady in the Lake. The movie was recently pushed back two months from its previous March 24 release date.
