About the Film:

Acclaimed filmmaker Guy Ritchie brings his dynamic style to the epic
fantasy action adventure “King Arthur: Legend of the Sword,” from Warner
Bros. Pictures and Village Roadshow Pictures. Starring Charlie Hunnam in
the title role, the film is an iconoclastic take on the classic
Excalibur myth, tracing Arthur’s journey from the streets to the throne.

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.

Starring with Hunnam (FX’s “Sons of Anarchy”) and Oscar nominee Law
(“Cold Mountain,” “The Talented Mr. Ripley”) are Astrid Bergès-Frisbey
(“Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides”) as Mage; Oscar nominee
Djimon Hounsou (“Blood Diamond,” “In America”) as Bedivere; Aidan Gillen
(HBO’s “Game of Thrones”) as Goose-Fat Bill; and Eric Bana (“Star Trek”)
as Arthur’s father, King Uther Pendragon.

Guy Ritchie (“The Man from U.N.C.L.E.,” the “Sherlock Holmes” films)
directed the film from a screenplay by Joby Harold (“Awake”) and Guy
Ritchie & Lionel Wigram, story by David Dobkin (“The Judge”) and Joby
Harold. The film is produced by Oscar winner Akiva Goldsman (“A
Beautiful Mind,” “I Am Legend”), Joby Harold, Tory Tunnell (“Awake,”
“Holy Rollers”), and “The Man from U.N.C.L.E.” and “Sherlock Holmes”
producers Steve Clark-Hall, Guy Ritchie and Lionel Wigram. David Dobkin
and Bruce Berman are executive producers.

Ritchie’s behind-the-scenes creative team included two-time
Oscar-nominated director of photography John Mathieson (“Gladiator,”
“The Phantom of the Opera”), Oscar-nominated production designer Gemma
Jackson (“Finding Neverland”), editor James Herbert (“The Man from
U.N.C.L.E.,” “Edge of Tomorrow”), costume designer Annie Symons
(Masterpiece Theater’s “Great Expectations”), makeup and hair designer
Christine Blundell (“Mr. Turner,” the “Sherlock Holmes” films), and
Oscar-nominated VFX Supervisor Nick Davis (“The Dark Knight”). The music
is by Daniel Pemberton (“The Man from U.N.C.L.E.”).

Warner Bros. Pictures presents, in association with Village Roadshow
Pictures, a Weed Road/Safehouse Pictures Production, a Ritchie/Wigram
Production, a Guy Ritchie film, “King Arthur: Legend of the Sword.”
Slated for release on May 12, 2017, the film will be distributed in
North America by Warner Bros. Pictures, a Warner Bros. Entertainment
Company, and in select territories by Village Roadshow Pictures.

The film has been rated PG-13 by the MPAA for sequences of violence and
action, some suggestive content and brief strong language.
