SNEAK PEAK AT NEW KING ARTHUR FILM.

A TRAILER has been released of the new King Arthur film - much of which was filmed in Snowdonia.

Guy Ritchie's take on the medieval legend is due to hit cinemas next year after filming was completed in 2015.

The first trailer for King Arthur: The Legend of the Sword was released on Saturday at this year's Comic-Con convention in America.

The film stars Jude Law, who plays Vortigern, Charlie Hunnam (King Arthur) and Eric Bana (Uther Pendragon).

Segments of the movie, originally called King Arthur: Knights of the Round Table, were filmed in the Nant Gwynant area near Beddgelert, as well as Vivian Quarry near Llanberis and Capel Curig, Conwy, in April and May last year.

Seven A-level drama students from Bangor's Ysgol Friars worked as extras in the movie.

One of them, Daniel Kerry, of Rhosneigr, told the Daily Post at the time of filming: "One of the funniest things I heard was some quite passionate grunting in an area of the recreational tent, it was a curtained off bit but my friend and I managed to peep through to find out what was going on. I spotted Jude Law doing bench-press ups with another really big bloke."

Daniel played a noble boy for a funeral scene. "I had to wear a brown tunic and a navy blue cape," said Daniel. "Guy Ritchie was really nice, he seemed very relaxed and was cracking jokes. He said thanks to us all at the end of the day."

King Arthur: The Legend of the Sword is out in the UK on March 24.
