Guy Ritchie's new fantasy epic King Arthur: Legend of the Sword is set to struggle at the box office this coming weekend, with a projected taking of $25 million at a whopping 3,600 locations in the United States - off the back of a $175 million production budget (not including marketing costs).

The special showing is a coup for the Pontio Cinema coming ahead of the film's offical general United Kingdom release from Warner Bros on May 19.

'But then hopefully what we tried to do was imbue a certain level of heart and substance to it too, so it's not just hollow calories, there's something very deep and relatable in a story of a man trying to become the best version of himself which is something we can all relate to'.

A SPECIAL preview screening of the highly anticipated epic film King Arthur: Legend of the Sword is being held in Bangor on Sunday.

Ritchie's take on the medieval legend follows King Arthur, played by Charlie Hunnam, who is robbed of his birthright and has a tough upbringing.

The film tells the origin of a young King Arthur who comes up unaware of his past after his Uncle Vortigern (Jude Law) murdered his Father (Eric Bana) and overthrew the crown. But once he pulls the Excalibur sword from the stone, he is forced to acknowledge his true legacy.

Charlie said the new movie features the "originality and fun and cheekiness" that is typical of the director's work. "It will be a fantastic evening for local industry, our members and the public".

Pontio's Arts and Marketing maager said: "It is qute a coup for Pontio to host this special preview screening".
