Since reinvigorating his career with 2009's Sherlock Holmes and its sequel, Guy Ritchie has gone from punchline to A-list director once more. His next film, King Arthur: Legend of the Sword, hits theaters next weekend and it looks like it's going to be right in line with the rest of Ritchie's work: frenetic and fun, so long as you don't think about it too hard. 

This clip comes to us courtesy of Yahoo! and they certainly make the film feel like it's going to be a hell of a fun time. In it, we see Charlie Hunnam's Arthur—not yet King—trying to explain what he's been up to. It's got all of the visual flair we've come to expect from Ritchie without getting bogged down in history. He has an uncanny ability, as a director, to make bygone eras feel incredibly real and immediate, and that's on brilliant display here.

Check out the final trailer for the film below as well and get pumped for the film's release on May 12. Fingers crossed that there's a philosophical discussion on whether or not supreme executive power derives from a mandate from the masses, or if indeed it's thanks to some farcical aquatic ceremony involving watery tarts throwing swords at you.
