- “King Arthur: Legend of the Sword“ (PG-13)
Charlie Hunnam from “Sons of Anarchy” is Arthur and Jude Law is the bad guy. He plays Arthur’s uncle, the guy who stole the throne when Arthur was a kid . . . leaving him to grow up an orphan with no idea who he is until he pulls the sword from the stone.
Djimon Hounsou is Sir Bedivere, Eric Bana plays Arthur’s dad, and the chick who played the mermaid in “Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides” is a mystical character called The Mage. The actress’ name is Astrid Berges-Frisbey, if you care.
It’s directed by “Sherlock Holmes” director Guy Ritchie, so this version is loaded with special effects and a plot that plays fast and loose with Arthurian legend.
“Game of Thrones” fans will also recognize the guy who plays Petyr “Littlefinger” Baelish as the archery expert Arthur recruits to help him retake his kingdom.
- “Snatched“ (R)
Amy Schumer convinces her mom to go with her on an exotic vacation she was planning with her boyfriend before he dumped her. Then they have to rely on each other after they’re kidnapped. Goldie Hawn plays her mom. Wanda Sykes is also in it.
- “The Wall“ (R)
Aaron Taylor-Johnson and John Cena are soldiers who get pinned down by a sniper who taunts them over the radio, and nothing but a small, unstable wall for cover.
