10 books that will be films this year
Thomas Malory "Death of Arthur"
Film:"The Sword of King Arthur", directed by Guy Richie
Starring:Charlie Hannam, Astrid Berger-Frisbee, Jude Law
The epic novel about the legendary King Arthur was written by Thomas Malory on the basis of Anglo-French folklore in the 1450s – 1470s, published in the 1485th. Malory was not a court writer or monastic ascetic chronicler - he himself had a knighthood and a wealth of experience in campaigning for fame and fortune.
The book about the adventures of King Arthur and his Knights of the Round Table was repeatedly filmed. Guy Ritchie presents her as a pseudo-historical fantasy, in which Arthur matures in front of the audience: the leader of the London brigands will find Excalibur's sword with remarkable magic power, learn the secret of its origin, rally the English people in the fight against the tyrant ruling the country, and take the throne himself.
