Best Quotes from Trailer:
Uther Pendragon: Listen to me, I need you do to as I tell you. I need to get you and the boy away from here.

The Mage: Did you see everything you needed to see?
Arthur: I saw enough.
Jack’s Eye: Now tell me a story. Tell me every detail.

Jack’s Eye: From where?
Arthur: From a nightmare.
Jack’s Eye: What was it about?
Jack’s Eye: Then?
Arthur: Then me and the lads took care of business.
Jack’s Eye: Hold, hold up, back up, back up. You’ve left something out.
Arthur: Are you writing a book? They all lived happily ever after.
Jack’s Eye: No, they did none of that, because for the first time there’s something you don’t know, something nobody told you.
Vortigern: Why has the water dropped? Why does the sword reveal itself now?
Merlin Wizard: [to Vortigern] There are rumors, the legend of the sword, of a king other than yourself.
Syren: [to Vortigern] As your power increases so do the forces that will oppose you. The born king will come. It is inevitable.
Vortigern: He felt it, the power.
Arthur: I’ve never had any power, why do you desire to achieve it?
Arthur: I see what you’re doing. You’re trying to get me to do some razzle-dazzle with that sword. I’m going to tell you right now, I’m not getting drawn into this mess. There’s an army of you, there’s only one of me. I haven’t had a fight for years. Want to talk, I’m happy to talk, but there is no way that I am fighting.
[suddenly he punches Bill and kicks Bedivere in the crotch and head-butts Percival then takes a sword]
Arthur: Alright, where do you want me?
Trigger: Bouncing on my knee. Where do you think I want you? Hands on the heel, stupid.
[Arthur goes over to the sword in the stone, touches it but he feels something and takes off his hand]
Trigger: Oy, both hands.
[Arthur uses both hand and raises the sword from the stone]
Arthur: That’s what all the fuss is about?
Bedivere: Don’t worry, you’ll soon understand what all the fuss is about.
The Mage: Are you scared?
Arthur: I think I can manage.
The Mage: You should be scared.
Bedivere: [to Arthur] It was Vortigern who murdered your father. But what he didn’t account for is what you can do with this sword.
Vortigern: Whatever it takes to hunt him down!
Mercia: You wanted a prophecy, this is your prophecy. The man who pulled sword from stone. Behold, your born king!
Vortigern: [to Arthur] I know what kind of a man you are. I know your story. What kind of man would you become had you inherited your father’s kingdom instead of being raised in a brothel? What gave you such drive? You felt it, didn’t you, the power.
Mercia: Behold, the man who pulled sword from stone!
Arthur: I’m not getting draw into this mess, there’s any army of you, there’s only one of me. I’ll talk, I’m happy to talk, but there is no way that I am fighting.

Maggie: You need to be careful, his power is increasing.
Vortigern: Maggie, I never realized what an important member of my household you are.
Maggie: Your majesty, I…
Vortigern: I haven’t finished. Still down. Until recently I didn’t recognize what a powerful tool you could be in the right hands. I thought you were simply a pawn. It turns out you were a far more significant piece, and it would be witless of me not to use that to my advantage, given how effectively you’ve been used against me.
Maggie: You are a cunning old bastard, Vortigern. But what you fail to understand is that it’s you who’s fed to the hangman that will eventually come for you.
Arthur: You two, down here, it’s a straight run to the river.
Bill: You go first.
Arthur: We don’t have time to argue, Bill.
Bill: Some of us will make it out in time, some of us won’t.
Arthur: Well better some than none!
Bill: You go first.
Arthur: Mike, get down the hole!
Mike: Full of rats, boss.

Arthur: Really? George, will you tell them?
George: Sorry, boss.
General 1: [to his men] Weapons!
Arthur: You silly bastards. Determined to die.
General 1: [to his men] On my command!
[the soldiers start to break down the door]
George: [to Arthur] Riots are spreading across the whole country. People are fighting for you.

Arthur: I suppose you want to know what happened to me.
Bedivere: I don’t want to push you, but, George?
George: Rise are spreading, not just in Londinium, across the whole country. People are fighting for you.
Bedivere: If there was ever a change it’s now.
Bill: It’s not going to last, but like you said, we’re not going to push you.
Arthur: I’m ready. We’re going to take the castle and we’re going in the front door. George, I need you to go to Londinium, gather the lads. Where’s The Mage?
Bedivere: She’s back at the cave.
Bedivere: Now, when you say we’re going to take the castle, what does that mean?
Arthur: I thought you said you weren’t going to push me. Come on, lads. Chop-chop.
Arthur: You created me.
