Trailer Time: King Arthur – Legend of the Sword Trailer #1 *What the What?*

So many of the trailers that came out of Comic Con got me excited for films next year.  The only one I saw that left me dumbfounded at how amazingly bad it looked was King Arthur: Legend of the Sword.  Guy Ritchie may have been able to turn Sherlock Holmes on its head successfully (the first time), but the Arthurian legend and he seem to have been on different planes passing in the night.  Charlie Hunan was a great fit on Sons of Anarchy, but it’s become clear in every role since that he’s got absolutely no range.  His accent is so all over the place in this trailer, I honestly was laughing by the time it was done.  Ritchie’s hyperkinetic offbeat style is not working in this venue, and the special effects look like they cost a fortune.  In short, I think this film is going to be one of 2017’s biggest bombs.  King Arthur: Legend of the Sword is scheduled for a March 24, 2017 release.  That puts it head-to-head with the Power Rangers reboot, two weeks after Kong: Skull Island and a week after Beauty & the Beast.  In a crammed March, this is going to get flattened.  The smartest move would be to reschedule it in a desolate corner of late summer/early fall 2017 when it might even have a chance to win its weekend.
