Watch the action-packed new trailer for King Arthur: Legend Of The Sword

A final trailer for King Arthur: Legend Of The Sword, the new big-budget blockbuster based on the classic story, has been unveiled. Click below to watch it. 

Sons Of Anarchy star Charlie Hunnam leads the film as 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. 

Guy Ritchie is in the director's chair, working from a script by Joby Harold. There are also small roles for Michael McElhatton, Djimon Hounsou, Mikael Persbrandt, Lorraine Bruce, Hermione Corfield, Annabelle Wallis and Aidan Gillen. 

This take on the story finds Arthur on the streets, completely unaware that he is actually the one true king until he draws the sword Excalibur from the stone. This discovery gets Arthur a dilemma, will he throw his lot in with the Resistance and an enigmatic young woman named Guinevere and unite the people to defeat the tyrant Vortigern? Or will he choose a quieter life? 

The new trailer focuses much more on the movie's huge scale and action sequences as well as spending more time showing off Law's shadowy Vortigen in action. 

The movie was originally due to hit cinemas in the summer of 2016, but was then delayed to the following summer. It is now due for release on May 19th.
