- United Kingdom
- 2h 6min
- Directed by: Guy Ritchie
- Cast: Charlie Hunnam, Annabelle Wallis, Hermione Corfield
- UK release: 19 May 2017
Arthur (Hunnam) is the ‘bastard son of a prostitute’, or so he thinks; then he discovers his power when he draws the sword Excalibur from its resting place. Brash, bold and noisy retelling of the myth, with armed elephants, lots of shouting and too much reliance on CGI trickery.
This film is not currently showing in cinemas.
