As we slowly approach the release date for Guy Ritchie’s King Arthur: Legend Of The Sword, it’s now time for Jude Law’s villainous Vortigern to take centre stage in the latest promotional poster to be released by Warner Bros.
Looking suitably ready for battle in his chainmail and with crown upon his head, Law certainly looks the part as he gets set to go toe-to-toe with Charlie Hunnam’s classic medieval legend. The British actor has already recently been lauded with praise for his role in the HBO show The Young Pope, so here’s hoping he can channel that particularly dark performance and provide us with one hell of a villain to remember come May.
You can revel in the new poster below.
When the child Arthur’s father is murdered, Vortigern (Jude Law), Arthur’s uncle, 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. But once he pulls the sword from the stone, his life is turned upside down and he is forced to acknowledge his true legacy…whether he likes it or not.
King Arthur: Legend Of The Sword is released in the UK in May.
