The legend of King Arthur has existed for well over a millennia, and as such has given way to countless interpretations of stories, TV shows, and films. So while we may be familiar with the name, there will always be a new way to look at the legend, a new way to tell the story, and a new way to rake in the cash. So just as superheroes are popular now, Guy Ritchie is giving audiences a reason to look at iconic literary characters. But while his previous efforts from the Sherlock Holmes films to The Man From U.N.C.L.E. may have been richly stylized and highly entertaining, King Arthur: Legend of the Sword suffers from a serious case of style over substance.
By now we should all be familiar with Guy Ritchie‘s visually epic retelling of King Arthur. But just in case the previous trailers have flown under your radar, Warner Bros. has just dropped a new trailer for King Arthur: Legend of the Sword starring Charlie Hunnam as the boy who would be king.
Yup. This is no ordinary story about King Arthur. The film centers on our title character born into royalty only to live in a brothel after his father was betrayed by one of his most trusted men. Check out the full trailer below.

Though the casting of Chris Evans in the role of Steve Rogers in Joe Johnston‘s The First Avenger: Captain America and the news that Joss Whedon would be directingThe Avengers has without doubt stolen the spotlight, there was still work to be done.
Hayley Atwell, who has starred in films like The Duchess and the TV mini-series remake of The Prisoner, has now been cast as the Captain America female lead, Peggy Carter. Atwell will be playing the the love interest of Rogers, and her character could become much larger depending upon how they take her comic book storyline and transfer it to the screen.
