ROUGH CUT. NO REPORTER NARRATION. Former soccer star David Beckham attended the European premiere of Guy Ritchie's 'King Arthur: Legend of the Sword' in London on Wednesday (May 10). The star, who makes his big screen acting debut in the movie, was in good spirits despite many British media outlets criticizing his performance. Beckham said it was "nice to be involved" in the project adding "obviously with Guy's movies you know what you're going to get but there's a few surprises, a bit of comedy along the way. The film revisits the tale of King Arthur and the classic Excalibur myth. Part of the challenge for Ritchie was reworking the tale in his own style. Actor Charlie Hunnam, of Sons of Anarchy fame, takes the lead role of Arthur. He had to convince Ritchie to give him the role. The film also stars actors Jude Law, Djimon Hounsou and model Poppy Delevingne (sister of model Cara Delevingne), made her acting debut. She said her famous sibling helped her with her new career. 'King Arthur: Legend of the Sword' is in cinemas from May 12.
