Guy Ritchie's King Arthur: Legend of the Sword. This is an action-packed version of the classic Arthurian legend. It's intense, it's vast and it looks very, very interesting. In this version of the story the rightful king of the land is Arthur's father, Uther Pendragon (Eric Bana). Uther is murdered and Vortigern (Jude Law) takes the throne for his own. Arthur (Charlie Hunnam) grows up on the streets with no idea who he is. He is street wise and tough. But one day he pulls a sword from the stone, and we all know what that means: he is the rightful king of England.

Arthur is a reluctant believer in the legend, but this is a time in which you ignore prophecies at your peril. And once he touched that sword, he gets a blast of who he really is, so it's not like he really has a choice but to save Londinium from the dictator Vortigern. The film also stars Astrid Berg├Ęs-Frisbey as Mage, Djimon Hounsou as Sir Bedivere and Aidan Gillen as Goosefat Bill. Annabelle Wallis, Katie McGrath, Tom Wu, Hermione Corfield, David Beckham and Kamil Lemieszewski.

Guy Ritchie's take on the story looks different from any adaptation that we've ever seen and we look forward to seeing the reset of the film. It hits theaters worldwide on March 24, 2017. Take a look:
