Warner Brothers Pictures new take on the famous king opens today with “King Arthur: Legend of the Sword”. Check out the theatrical poster, some reminder premise and the casting.
Plot: The young Arthur runs the back streets of Londinium with his crew, unaware of his royal lineage until he draws the sword Excalibur from the stone. Instantly confronted by the sword’s influence, Arthur is forced to decide when to become involved with his power. Throwing in with the Resistance and an enigmatic young woman named Guinevere, he must learn to master the sword, face down his demons, unite the people to defeat the tyrant Vortigern — who murdered his parents and stole his crown — and become king.

PiercingMetal Thoughts: Since I’ve had a lot of shows this week and another one hitting my planner tomorrow I am taking a pass on this as a day of release viewing. I know that some friends are going to see it, so I will ask what they thought before hitting the cinema. Speaking frankly I have quite a bit of films to check out already as a media scribe over the next couple of months but I do think that this one looks entertaining. What about you readers? Are you checking this one out at some point this opening weekend or are you going to wait until it reaches cable? Let me know in the comments section below and of course no spoilers please. If you check it out and want to give us the thumbs up or down, please leave it at that. See you next time.
