SFPL‘s Co-Creator & Editor, Gabriel Williams recently sat down with the stars of King Arthur: Legend of the Sword, Charlie Hunnam and Djimon Hounsou to talk about the action-packed film hitting theaters on Friday, May 12.
Directed by Guy Ritchie, who brings his dynamic style to the epic fantasy action adventure — Charlie and Djimon both tapped into their experience and explained special moments while filming and more. Also, the storyline itself tells a compelling overall story about dealing with life obstacles, facing fears, dealing with the death of loved ones, growing up without a family, hardship, and so much more.
Djimon speaks on the challenges that were displayed in the film:
The relatable fact about this story is that we can all identify with a kid that was raised in a brothel, bunch of women, and didn’t have a father, didn’t have a mother — actually, halfway on the streets, and we now follow his life experience all the way to the throne.
Djimon also gave important gems about staying healthy and fit.
Charlie spoke on the physical process of the film:
I wanted to be very very lean. It was a combination watching a diet and keeping a really clean diet. I also wanted to be fast on my feet. When you lift a lot of weights you get swollen and slow. I think the key is body weight, i.e calisthenics.
