‘King Arthur: Legend of the Sword’

The story and dialogues of “King Arthur: Legend of the Sword” are written by Joby Harold, and Guy Ritchie. The film is based on a novel of the same name by Lionel Wigram. In February 2014, Warner Bros. recruited Guy Ritchie to co-produce and direct a new version of “King Arthur” film series. Previously, it was titled as “Knights of the Roundtable: King Arthur,” but the filmmaker changed the name in March 2016.

Filming is done in North Wales and parts of the United States.

Earlier this month, Ritchie shared new movie posters on the official Twitter, confirming its production. Several action sequences have been shot in Capel Curig, Tryfan, Nant Gwynant, and Wester Ross of the Scottish Highlands.

The marketing

The first teaser trailer for the movie was released in July 2016, during the San Diego Comic-Con, and attached to the screenings of top films, including “Fantastic Beasts,” “Shut In,” “Don’t Breathe,” and “Mechanic: Resurrection.” It was originally planned for DVD and IMAX, but the filmmaker said the movie would receive non-IMAX presentations.

Its full-length trailer was released online in January 2017 and shown on Fox Broadcasting Company and CBS. In February 2017, the third clip for “King Arthur: Legend of the Sword” was released and attached to “Power Rangers,” “Logan,” “Ghost in the Shell,” and “Kong: Skull Island.”

The final trailer for the movie came out in the first week of April, and attached to “Free Fire,” “The Lost City of Z,” and “The Fate of the Furious.” It has been reported that the movie will be shown at selected AMC Theaters across the country.

Born in 1968, Guy Ritchie is a famous producer, screenplay writer, and director. His most notable works are “Snatch,” “RocknRolla,” “Swept Away,” “Revolver,” and “Sherlock Holmes.” He is also credited for the success of “The Man from UNCLE.”
