Epic action adventure directed by Guy Ritchie, the story follows the young Arthur (Charlie Hunnan) whose parents are murdered by his uncle, Vortigern (Jude Law), and he 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. He runs the back passages of Londinium with his crew, not knowing his royal lineage until he grabs Excalibur. Instantly confronted by the sword’s influence, Arthur is forced to make up his mind.
