Watch Charlie Hunnam prove his strength in final King Arthur trailer

Here's something worth savoring.

Warner Bros. unveiled the very last trailer for King Arthur: Legend of the Sword, the upcoming fantasy action-adventure film backed by director Guy Ritchie and screenwriter Joby Harold. The final look shows a rugged Charlie Hunnam as the titular storied leader as he traverses the troubles of his childhood, packs of tough-as-nails enemies, and a particularly awful haircut. It also features Jude Law as the power-hungry (and more sinister than he seems) Vortigern, who rises to royalty after allegedly murdering his own brother, Arthur's father.

Beyond the coin exchanges, blade-swinging battles, and moments when Hunnam's Arthur realizes his worth, the new trailer brings a bit of fun. Here, the good times come in the form of dragons, enormous war elephants, and Led Zeppelin's "Babe I'm Gonna Leave You," which plays as the action heats up.

Check out the full trailer in the video above.

The upcoming film has been described as an iconoclastic take on the Excalibur myth, documenting the years before and after Arthur claimed the throne. Here's the official synopsis for King Arthur: Legend of the Sword (via ScreenCrush): "When the child Arthur's father is murdered, Vortigern, Arthur's uncle, seizes the crown. Robbed of his birthright and with no idea who he truly is, Arthur comes up the hard way in the back alleys of the city. But once he pulls the sword from the stone, his life is turned upside down and he is forced to acknowledge his true legacy... whether he likes it or not."

Alongside Hunnmam and Law are costars Àstrid Bergès-Frisbey as Guinevere, Djimon Hounsou as Sir Bedivere, Eric Bana as Uther Pendragon, and Aidan Gillen as Goosefat Bill Wilson.

King Arthur: Legend of the Sword hits theaters May 12. While we wait to catch Ritchie's retelling, read up on the other movies we predict will blow us all away in 2017.
