Comic Con trailer King Arthur: Legend of the Sword (2017) trailer evokes mixed feelings

I thoughtGuy Ritchie’s last two blockbuster outings were marvellous, which was sadly not reflected in their BO receipts.

The ComicCon trailer for his revitalisation of the King Arthur myth is a little jarring though:

There is some stuff I like, particularly the fact that they finally do not ignore the fantastic elements of the story any longer. Charlie Hunnam as Arthur made cringe a little though. And gigantic elephants?? Really??? Well, we’ll see.

King Arthur: Legend of the Sword is released in March 2017.

    weren’t they planning on doing 6 of these? fucking Black Knight looks better than this. and where is Helen Mirren’s ass?

  • Turd Has Escaped The Gravy

    What the hell? Is this a time-travel story, like A Connecticut Yankee in King Arthur’s Court, or is it just anachronistic? Very confusing.

  • KilliK

    did you see the WW trailer,mate?

  • Turd Has Escaped The Gravy

    Yeah, thought it was great – except for the bullshit SJW commentary they had to put in right at the end. WTF? A woman having a job as a secretary is sexist now? That spoiled it a little, but I though the rest looked good.

  • KilliK

    yeah, looks cool. dont like though that the germans are depicted as the “bad” guys.

  • That just looks fucking awful

  • It’s during WWI, what else would the Germans be?

  • KilliK

    the germans werent the bad guys, both sides were fighting for control of Europe. nothing to do with fascism or nazism. not a fan of history, eh?

    I guess I’ll be getting loads of hate as I bring StudioHEAD and Secretary back…

  • I_am_better

    Was kinda digging it, until the magic and dragons and shit appeared onscreen

  • Bop

    I groaned. And Hunnam is in this? WTF, Hunnam?

  • ErnestRister

    Yup, and I like Ritchie.

    Killik…can’t you make your points without insults? I’ve never understood that about you, even though I’ve defended you and have no personal issues with you. I’m not your mom, so post however you want, I just don’t see the need in insulting Scott.

  • KilliK

    I dont have any personal issues with you either, Ernest. and it’s always a joy to read your posts.

  • ErnestRister

    Scott’s going through a rough period right now, Killik. He doesn’t need me to defend him, He can take care of himself, but I know what he’s going through, and it ain’t easy.

  • KilliK

    why? what happened?

  • ErnestRister

    Scott can defend himself, just letting you know he’s fighting a neurological issue. Be kind isn’t just good advice for Scott, it’s good advice period.

  • KilliK

    schizophrenia?

  • ErnestRister

    No, neuropathy.

  • KilliK

    damn, he has my sympathy. I wish him all the best and a fast recovery if possible.
