The first shots of Charlie Hunnam as King Arthur in the upcoming movie of the same title (or Knights of the Round Table: King Arthur) have been put online, courtesy of Entertainment Weekly. The movie has been directed by Guy Ritchie and slated for a July 2016 release.
In the movie, ‘The young Arthur runs the back passages of Londonium with his crew, not knowing his royal lineage until he grabs Excalibur. Instantly confronted by the sword’s influence, Arthur is forced to make up his mind. He joins the rebellion and a shadowy young woman named Guinevere, he must learn to understand the magic weapon, deal with his demons and unite the people to defeat the dictator Vortigern, the man who murdered his parents and stole his crown to become king.
But seriously. What the fuck is going on here? Why does King Arthur look like he’s a poser and male model? Was King Arthur a metrosexual?! Check the second image in this slideshow, is Guy Ritchie having a laugh? Crom is unhappy…
