"I think it's one of the big attributes of the story and it resonates about what's going on in the world", he admitted. If your movie diet consists of mostly action films, you may want to look elsewhere. Or was it all just a very loud dream?
In what was something of a father-and-son moment, the former footballer, 42, was accompanied by his son Brooklyn, 18, as he shared the spotlight with the cast of the Guy Ritchie film. Initially we would try very sombre, then medium, then fun then swinging off like Monty Python then everything fell into rhythm.
Charlie Hunnam: "We definitely wanted to make this rendering of the legend as young and fresh and accessible to this generation as possible".
"He's more handsome than me". But it's sort of quite elitist and it's - in that rendering and what we wanted to really do was make Arthur an everyman.
While Sam Cornish tweeted: "The only thing I took away from King Arthur is that David Beckham can't act". There was never a point I felt I was transported like good movies have the ability to do - I always knew I was watching a green screen, with cardboard cutouts of characters superimposed on a digitally created background. That's what it was for me. "I spent a lot of time in the back alleys with my play sword, so to be hired by Guy Ritchie was significant to me". He really has an extraordinary ability to work in real time.
Actor Charlie Hunnam has defended David Beckham's acting talents, describing his King Arthur co-star as a "humble" and "serious" actor. "I was reading a quote the other day that said, 'There are no great men, there are only ordinary men called to greatness through circumstance.' That seems to be a narrative I'm drawn to over and over again".
Charlie said at the premiere: "Guy is absolutely sensational working with but he is bad about doing any preparation".
"I suppose the one element that I want to introduce more is development", the 37-year-old actor noted.
