Trailer released for blockbuster filmed INWALES.

A TRAILER has been released for 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 wrapped in 2015.

The first trailer for the film, called 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 in Conwy in April and May 2015.

The trailer indicated the film will be a very modern take on the mythical story, with some fantastical elements.

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

Daniel Kerry, who lives in Rhosneigr, told the Daily Post: "One of the funniest things I heard was some quite passionate grunting in an area of the recreational tent, it was a curtained off 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 the day in 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."

King Arthur is out in UK cinemas on March 24, 2017
