Guy Ritchie's King Arthur delayed until 2017
Guy Ritchie's new big-budger of King Arthur has been delayed until 2017.
The new epic was due to arrive in cinemas on July 22nd in 2016, but has now moved back to February 17th in 2017.
Initially the move was due to compete with Star Trek Beyond and new animation Ice Age: Collision Course, but will now do battle with Bad Boys III and The Maze Runner: The Death Cure, which are due out on the same day.
It will also face competition from Fifty Shades Darker, which hits cinemas a week earlier.
In Ritchie's new epic Sons Of Anarchy star Charlie Hunnam will lead the film as King Arthur, with Pirates Of The Caribbean: On Stranger Tides' Àstrid Bergès-Frisbey playing Guinevere, Eric Bana playing Uther Pendragon, Arthur's father and Jude Law as villain Vortigen.
The film is to be titled Knights Of The Round Table: King Arthur and is the first of six planned instalments.
Joby Harold wrote the the script and is producing with Ritchie, Lionel Wigram, Akiva Goldsman and Tory Tunnell.
