The project is said to aim for 6(!) movies and tell the tale of the mythical figure – King Arthur – who is believed to be an English king during the 6th century and that defended England against a Saxon invasion.
When the child Arthur’s father is murdered, Vortigern (Jude Law), Arthur’s uncle, seizes the crown. Robbed of his birthright and with no idea who he truly is, Arthur comes up the hard way in the back alleys of the city. But once he pulls the sword from the stone, his life is turned upside down and he is forced to acknowledge his true legacy…whether he likes it or not.
KING ARTHUR: LEGEND OF THE SWORD is directed by Guy Ritchie and in theaters May 12, 2017
