The young man's life will change when he tries to get Excalibur out of the stone on which he rests, thus giving rise to a well-known legend.

As he advances, he has to fight the dirt that infects the world, while he tries not to get dirty in His ascent.

#4 A great release date: May 19, 2017
With the release date scheduled for May 12 in the USA and August 11 in Spain, 'King Arthur: The Legend of Excálibur' has, in addition to the aforementioned Hunnam, Bana and Law, with the Franco-Spanish actress Àstrid Bergès-Frisbey as Geneva, Djimon Hounsou as Bedivere, and the star appearance of David Beckham as one of the knights who will not make things easy for Arthur. Director Guy Ritchie reinvented the Sherlock Holmes story with Robert Downey Jr. and he brought back The Man from U.N.C.L.E. (which is incredibly underrated and now there are talks of a sequel). So it makes a lot of sense Ritchie would be the one tapped to resurrect the legend of King Arthur in King Arthur: Legend of the Sword.
In this exclusive clip from King Arthur: Legend of the Sword, Arthur (Charlie Hunnam) really doesn’t want to fight. He’s outnumbered. He has no chance of winning. But then Arthur strikes Sir Bedivere (Djimon Hounsou), steals a sword and shows what he can do with such a weapon against Goosefat Bill, played by Aidan Gillen. (Between “Goosefat Bill” and “Littlefinger,” Gillen is collecting an impressive list of character nicknames.
By the end, Goosefat Bill seemed dazzled by what he’s seen out of Arthur. Well, this sword fighter will become King Arthur so Goosefat Bill better be dazzled. King Arthur: Legend of the Sword tells the origin story of King Arthur, back when Arthur roamed the streets of London and had no idea that he was the chosen one until he pulls the sword Excalibur from a stone. From here, Arthur must decide how to use his newfound power.
Some soldiers are just determined to die. In the upcoming action epic King Arthur: Legend of the Sword, the titular leader (played by Charlie Hunnam) finds that out the hard way.
In an exclusive new clip from the film, watch as King Arthur tries desperately to convince his men to flee to the river, far away from the bloodthirsty soldiers closing in on their quarters. One by one, they offer flimsy excuses for why they’d rather stand and fight.
