The first official trailer of Guy Ritchie's upcoming blockbuster, King Arthur: Legend of the Sword proves the flick is already living up to the hype. Ritchie, who brought us Snatch and Sherlock Holmes, is telling the Arthurian legend in a completely different adrenaline-rushing, action-packed, Ritchie- esque way - and we are already  hooked.

The trailer also gives us a better look at protagonist Arthur, played by Sons of Anarchy's Charlie Hunnam. Not only is Hunnam a medieval vision (fact: he was meant to play Christian in the 50 Shades saga), but has given the legend a more bad-ass Londoner meets Game of Thrones vibe, with a bunch of air fist-pumping along the way. You also see an appearance from one of Ritchie's favourite, Jude Law.
