A new trailer for King Arthur: Legend of the Sword has arrived–and it’s pretty intense.
Sons of Anarchy actor Charlie Hunnam plays the lead role in the movie, which is described as an “iconoclastic take on the classic Excalibur myth.” The film follows Arthur “from the streets to the throne,” with the story involving Arthur reclaiming the throne after his father, played by Star Trek‘s Eric Bana, is murdered.
Here is the official plot description: “When the child Arthur’s father is murdered, Vortigern (Jude Law), Arthur’s uncle, seizes the crown. Robbed of his birthright and with no idea who he truly is, Arthur comes up the hard way in the back alleys of the city. But once he pulls the sword from the stone, his life is turned upside down and he is forced to acknowledge his true legacy…whether he likes it or not.”
Legend of the Sword also stars Astrid Berges-Frisbey (Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides), Djimon Hounsou (Blood Diamond), and Aidan Gillen (Game of Thrones).
The film is directed by Guy Ritchie, who previously made movies like Snatch, The Man from U.N.C.L.E., and Sherlock Holmes. The new trailer says the movie comes out on May 12, while the official description says it hits theaters on March 24.
