Warner Bros. has pushed back Guy Ritchie’s untitled King Arthur movie, starring Charlie Hunnam, from the Presidents’ Day weekend on Feb. 17, 2017, to March 24, 2017.
The King Arthur movie, which also stars Àstrid Bergès-Frisbey as Guinevere, Jude Law, Djimon Hounsou and Katie McGrath, will open against Lionsgate’s “Power Rangers” movie. It was previously going up against Sony’s “Bad Boys 3” and 20th Century Fox’s “Maze Runner: The Death Cure.”
It’s the second time that Warner Bros. has moved the King Arthur project backwards. It announced in December that it was going to open the film seven months after its originally scheduled launch on July 22, 2016.
The King Arthur movie is produced by Akiva Goldsman, Guy Ritchie, Joby Harold, Tory Tunnell and Charlie Hunnam. Village Roadshow co-produced and co-financed.
