Hey look, another King Arthur movie [trailer]

On May 12, the latest King Arthur movie will hit theatres. It looks badass enough and like it would be fun for a few hours. It appears to borrow a bit from the Two Towers for its battle sequences.

This Arthurian story is directed by Guy Ritchie (Snatch, Sherlock Holmes) and stars Charlie Hunnam (Sons of Anarchy), Astrid Berg├Ęs-Frisbey (Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides, Alaska), Jude Law (Sherlock Holmes, the Young Pope) and Djimon Hounsou (Gladiator, Guardians of the Galaxy).

For Hollywood, King Arthur has been the gift that keeps on giving. Including modernizations, direct retellings, adaptations and indirect adaptations (stories covering some part of the Arthurian legend if not the whole thing for TV and film, Hollywood has gone to King Arthur 93 times in the last 50 years.
