Amy Schumer's 'Snatched' Will Beat 'King Arthur' at Box Office

Two big new movies are battling it out at the box office this weekend, but not for the number one slot. Amy Schumer‘s comedy Snatched and Charlie Hunnam‘s action-adventure King Arthur are both looking to secure the number two spot!

Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 will easily top this weekend’s box office with an estimated $61.9 million in its second frame.

While forecasters initially thought that King Arthur would top Snatched, it’s looking like the opposite will happen following Friday’s grosses.

Snatched is on its way to earn $16.5 million for the Mother’s Day weekend while King Arthur is on track to earn a lower than expected $14.3 million, according to Deadline.

Charlie Hunnam Talks James Bond Rumors with Conan (Video)

Charlie Hunnam is opening up about rumors that he is in the mix to be the next actor to play James Bond!

The 37-year-old King Arthur actor appeared on an episode of Conan on Thursday (May 11), where he was asked about the possibility of him playing 007.

“I can say two things. I’m English and I look devilishly handsome in a suit,” Charlie said. “I can say three things… and nobody has called me about playing James Bond, so I’m pretty sure that’s not going to happen.”

When Conan joked that he’s getting calls to play Bond, Charlie said, “If you decide not to do it, you can just throw your ole’ pal Charlie’s name in the hat.”

Is There a 'King Arthur: Legend of the Sword' End Credits Scene?

King Arthur: Legend of the Sword opens in theaters at midnight tonight and fans are wondering if they should stick around for a post-credits scene.

Well, there is no scene after the credits!

The film is an iconoclastic take on the classic Excalibur myth, tracing Arthur’s journey from the streets to the throne. When the child Arthur’s father is murdered, Vortigern (Jude Law), Arthur’s uncle, seizes the crown. Robbed of his birthright and with no idea who he truly is, Arthur comes up the hard way in the back alleys of the city. But once he pulls the sword from the stone, his life is turned upside down and he is forced to acknowledge his true legacy…whether he likes it or not.

The film stars Charlie Hunnam in the title role, with Astrid Bergès-Frisbey, Djimon Hounsou, Aidan Gillen, and Eric Bana. Guy Ritchie directs the film.

Charlie Hunnam Had to Convince Guy Ritchie to Cast Him in 'King Arthur: Legend of the Sword'

Charlie Hunnam wasn’t handed the role of King Arthur.

The 37-year-old actor recently opened up about how he had to convince director Guy Ritchie to cast him in Legend of the Sword.

“I felt like he had a perception of me that I didn’t feel was exactly accurate,” Charlie told Vanity Fair. “I didn’t really think I was going to change his mind and that I was in real consideration for the role, but I thought I could show him what I was about.”

A lot of other big names were auditioning for the role.

“I said to Guy, ‘Just bring those other chimpanzees in here and whoever walks out of this room gets the role, because, in English parlance, I’ll smash the granny out of the competition even at 160 pounds,’” Charlie said. “He sort of had a little glint in his eye, and I could tell that appealed to him. I think that was, more than the audition I did, the moment he decided I was the Arthur he was looking for.”
