Watch David Beckham's anticipated acting debut in new King Arthur clip

"King Arthur: Legend Of The Sword" will hit the theatres this Friday. The famous character needed to be involved and not having him present in the story hurts this film tremendously from the start since you're left with Charlie Hunnam's charisma (or lack of) that can't match his good looks.

In case you don't feel like watching, Ritchie told us that he thinks "it'd be tough not to make [Aladdin] a musical", which makes sense given the energy of the original film. All of that would be fine, a new fresh take on the story, if "King Arthur: Legend of the Sword" wasn't the worst kind of movie.

Directed by Guy Ritchie and starring Charlie Hunnam as the eponymous figure of British folklore and history, Legend of the Sword aims to put a fresh spin on the timeless tale of medieval heroism that is the King Arthur legend.

"Not as dramatic as Beckham's role in England vs Greece", another viewer joked.

But asked if he thought a movie career beckons for Beckham, he added: "I don't know yet, one step at a time".

In the film, Beckham plays a disgruntled Cockney knight called Trigger who offers a few offhand words of advice to Arthur as he attempts to pull the legendary sword from the stone.

Did the world need another King Arthur movie?

"King Arthur: Legend of the Sword" lumbers on for more than two hours, weighed down with oversized elephants and excessively populated action sequences. "He'll show up, and it became very clear within the first week of filming that the script itself was just a blueprint and it was really going to be a process of exploration every day". "I'd like to go out for beer with both of them", Hunnam said.

Director Guy Ritchie shot the film in 2015 and co-wrote the script with Joby Harold and Lionel Wigram.

Back in March, Beckham shared a photo of himself in full make-up on the set of the film.
