The latest big-screen stab at the legend of King Arthur is almost upon us, so perhaps unsurprisingly Warner Bros have unleashed a new trailer.

Titled ‘Prophecy’, it’s a fresh look at the Guy Ritchie opus, which stars the likes of Charlie Hunnam and Jude Law.

Here’s a synopsis:

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 hits UK cinemas on May 19 – and here’s that trailer:
