Next summer was meant to bring Guy Ritchie‘s first venture into fantasy with Knights of the Roundtable: King Arthur, but now Warner Bros. Pictures has decided to push the film back from its original July 22nd, 2016 release date to a release early in 2017 instead. Is the studio no longer confident in the film? 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 »
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.

It’s really a shame that Man of Steel didn’t give Henry Cavill much room to show off his charm, because as the new trailer for Guy Ritchie‘s The Man From U.N.C.L.E. shows, he’s got it in spades. The big-screen remake of the ’60s series stars Cavill as CIA agent Napoleon Solo, who’s forced to team with KGB agent Illya Kuryakin (Armie Hammer) to, I don’t know, save the world or something.
The specifics of the plot aren’t important. The key thing is that it offers Cavill and Hammer an excuse to engage in snarky banter, wear sharp suits, drive cool cars, and blow up shiny things. Alicia Vikander, Elizabeth Debicki, and Hugh Grant also star. Watch the new The Man From UNCLE trailer, and check out a new poster, after the jump.

Henry Cavill took a break from being Superman to be The Man From U.N.C.L.E. for Warner Bros. and Guy Ritchie, and now you can see the first footage of him in action.
