Set photos reveal a first look at Guy Ritchie's King Arthur film

04.14.2015

Six films, they're already planning for six films in Guy Ritchie's King Arthur franchise; lets just see how the first one does fellas. The first film of this potentially six film spanning franchise, KNIGHTS OF THE ROUNDTABLE: KING ARTHUR, is currently filming in the Snowdonia National Park and as is typical of any film that shoots outside nowadays, there are set photos. I'm not spotting any sign of Charlie Hunnam, who will be playing the title role, but we do get our first look at Jude Law as Vortigen; check them out!

As we know, KNIGHTS OF THE ROUNDTABLE: KING ARTHUR won't be the only film pulling from the King Arthur myths, Jonathan Liebesman has his own version in the works by the name of MAN AT ARMS. That film will follow Sir Lancelot as an older man who is bent on making amends after his love for Guinevere (and hers for him) ended up destroying Arthur’s Camelot. As for Ritchie's film, this is an idea of what we're in for:

The bold new story introduces a streetwise young Arthur who runs the back alleys of Londonium with his gang, unaware of the life he was born for until he grasps hold of the sword Excalibur—and with it, his future. Instantly challenged by the power of Excalibur, Arthur is forced to make some hard choices. Throwing in with the Resistance and a mysterious young woman named Guinevere, he must learn to master the sword, face down his demons and unite the people to defeat the tyrant Vortigern, who stole his crown and murdered his parents, and become King.

KNIGHTS OF THE ROUNDTABLE: KING ARTHUR is set for a July 22, 2016 release.

I have no clue if this will be good or suck. I do know studios make multi-film plans all the time without any indication of success. It was definitely stupid of them to allow a six film plan to leak or to be announced, as that kinda sets them up for failure unless these are all budgeted to make an "average" or "modest" return for the sake of supporting the art itself.

Camelot IS a silly place.

Didn't like Holmes

Too self-aware for my tastes but maybe he will do better with this property

bomb

guy ritchie is a pretty crap director these days. lock stock and snatch are good but his other films are pretty poor. his Sherlock Holmes films are pretty much the worst version of that character ever developed.

this his bomb and disaster written all over it.

plus hunnam is a joke of an actor.

are you serious?

That looks like the location of the rabbit cave. That scene needs to be reimagined with modern CGI.

I sure hope there's a nod to Monty Python and the Holy Grail somewhere in there. Maybe some knight would say "Tis but a scratch!!".

Really excited for this considering the talent they have signed on for it and and Ritchie's directing style.
