King Arthur: Legend of the Sword Is a Kinetic Slog!

Guy Ritchie made his bones (so to speak) on hard-edged crime films with wicked humor and striking visuals. Then he went big budget with Sherlock Holmes and provided a very different (but surprisingly canonical) consulting detective. Next up was the criminally underrated The Man From U.N.C.L.E. – the best non-Bond Bond flick since the first Jason Bourne.

Now Ritchie is dissecting and reassembling the Arthur legend in King Arthur: Legend of the Sword – and it’s a very kinetic movie that is also, simultaneously, more than a bit of a slog.

The Born King Trailer: King Arthur: Legend of the Sword!

Guy Ritchie’s King Arthur: Legend of the Sword looks to be a huge reimagining of the Arthurian myth – on a scale with John Boorman’s exquisite Excalibur, but considerably less shiny.

The new trailer for  King Arthur: Legend of the Sword is set against an immediately recognizable Led Zeppelin tune. The result is pretty impressive.

Guy Ritchie’s off the wall film Snatch – which starred Brad Pitt with an incomprehensible Pikey accent – is being adapted as a drama series by Crackle.

Rupert Grint has signed on to play posh con man Charlie Cavensish in the series. Dougray Scott and Ed Westwick will also star.

‘Inspired by a real life heist in London, “Snatch,” centers on a group of twenty-something, up and coming hustlers who stumble upon a truck load of stolen gold bullion and are suddenly thrust into the high-stakes world of organized crime.’

Snatch is set for a ten-episode/60-minute first season, and will premiere in 2017. For details follow the jump.

Comic-Con 2016: Raised in the Streets Trailer: King Arthur: Legend of the Sword!

While Guy Ritchie’s The Man From U.N.C.L.E…. shall we say ‘underperforming’… he set his sights on the King Arthur legend.

As you might expect, it’s a vastly different interpretation than we’ve seen before – though it is a distinctly Ritchie production.

The first trailer was shown at Comic-Con 2016 today – but if, like me, you couldn’t afford to go, you can view it by simply following the jump.

The Man From U.N.C.L.E. Is A Fun Spy Romp!

The Man From U.N.C.L.E. opens with a breathtaking chase sequence as Napoleon Solo engineers an escape from East Germany (over the Berlin Wall) for a pretty auto mechanic named Gaby – who is the daughter of a missing nuclear scientist who has just revolutionized the creation of enriched uranium.

Solo has to work for the escape because a shadowy yet hulking KGB agent is less than a step behind. After succeeding, he is appalled to discover that agent is Ilya Kuryakin – and they will have to work together to find said scientist.
