Next summer was meant to bring Guy Ritchie‘s first venture into fantasy with Knights of the Roundtable: King Arthur, but now Warner Bros.

Are there problems behind the scenes? The reason for having King Arthur delayed is apparently more of a business decision than anything. Find out more below. Read More »
We’re a week and a half away from the opening of Guillermo del Toro‘s Crimson Peak. The buzz is strong for the director’s horror-romance, but it’s still a financial gamble. Del Toro’s film is an original, R-rated period piece, which are never a sure thing at the box-office. Then again, there’s nothing else quite like Crimson Peak coming out anytime soon, so maybe that’ll be enough to draw general audiences in. It’s a very good, beautifully directed movie — and a Crimson Peak clip, a handful of features and TV spots highlight the beauty of del Toro’s latest. Check them out after the jump.

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.

The European Film Market is kicking off, which is why we’re starting to get information on some films we’ve heard about for a long time. The latest is Lost City of Z, which has been in development for some time from Brad Pitt’s company Plan B.

Hunnam is taking the role Benedict Cumberbatch was once going to play, but with Cumberbatch shooting Doctor Strange beginning in May, there’s no way for him to do the Lost City of Z movie.
