Next month brings Guy Ritchie‘s swinging spy action adventure The Man from U.N.C.L.E. (watch the trailer here), but the Snatch and Sherlock Holmes director is already busy on his next film, in a completely different time period yet again.
Knights of the Round Table: King Arthur is a new telling of the classic monarch legend, a 6th century king who has been said to have defended Britain against Saxon invaders. Pacific Rim and Sons of Anarchy star Charlie Hunnam plays the title role, and now some first look photos have just surfaced, showing off a rather gruff King Arthur and his trusty sword Excalibur.
