A new clip from Guy Ritchie’s King Arthur: Legend of the Sword, featuring a cameo from football superstar David Beckham, has landed. In the clip, Beckham’s character taunts Arthur (played by Charlie Hunnam) as he attempts to lift the legendary sword from the stone. Beckham also had a cameo in Guy Ritchie’s last film, The Man From U.N.C.L.E.
A featurette titled “Not Going to Fight” has also arrived from King Arthur. The clip features interviews with the cast from actors Charlie Hunnam and Jude Law and the director Guy Ritchie. The trio discuss King Arthur as a character, and the creative choices made to make him a more compelling hero.
The synopsis of King Arther: Legend of the Sword is 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 cinemas 19 May.
