King Arthur fails to reign in US, with young cinemagoers not interested

MICHAEL as David in ‘Alien Covenant

"King Arthur: Legend of the Sword" was directed by Guy Ritchie, the film stars Charlie Hunnam, Astrid Bergès-Frisbey, and Jude Law.

There's little good news for Guy Ritchie's "King Arthur: The Legend of the Sword" in its opening weekend, with the big-budget epic proving to be a box office bomb.

Along with Arthur, we are drawn into the hot mess of a film, King Arthur: Legend of the Sword. Whatever the logic was, it and "Snatched" will both get eaten up by "Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2" in its second weekend. The Chris Pratt, Zoe Saldana, Vin Diesel, Dave Bautista, and Bradley Cooper sequel is also impressing critics, earning an A grade from CinemaScore. Son's of Anarchy's Charlie Hunnam stars as Arthur who is robbed of his birthright to wear his father's crown to become King.

Sunni extremists remain the primary terrorist threat to the USA , with home-grown actors posing the biggest concern. Such "influence operations" will continue in the U.S., Europe and elsewhere, he said.

This weekend's other wide release, raunchy mother-daughter comedy "Snatched", opened with an underwhelming (but decent) $17.5 million.

The summer's first box office dud arrived this week as King Arthur sort of fell on that legendary sword. Mostly, though, "Legend of the Sword" feels like a rather desperate attempt - in design, music, and even casting - to score some of that sweet, sweet "Game of Thrones" cash. Sure King Arthur is an iconic story, but it looks so much like recent releases like Hercules and The Last Witch Hunter.

Universal's "Fate of the Furious" finishes fourth in its fifth week, adding another $1.6 million to its already impressive cumulative gross from 3,067 theaters. Headed into the weekend industry estimates were for an opening in the mid-teens and our basement projection was $18 million, which Snatched could still hit if it sees a little more support over Mother's Day than now projected.
