Charlie Hunnam As King Arthur Needs Excalibur. The Meaning Of An Iconic Sword

Charlie Hunnam As King Arthur

Charlie Hunnam will play as King Arthur in the upcoming movie ‘Knights of the Roundtable: King Arthur.’ It is scheduled for a July 22, 2016 release.

As always, the beginning of the film focus on the young Arthur, who runs the back passages of Londonium with his crew, not knowing his royal lineage until he grabs Excalibur. Why is Excalibur so important? Today, the meaning of this legendary sword.

Because in the mythology which surrounds Camelot, everybody and everything is a metaphor. Characters are representing a sin (Guinevere is lust) or a virtue (Merlin is wisdom), and any object is a symbol and has a meaning. How about Excalibur?

Excalibur is justice and justice is the truth. No one should govern without the truth in hand. And only one true king can pull Excalibur from darkness (from the rock where it remains dormant).

The truth is divine and belongs to the Lady of the Lake, who represents the Mother Nature. She is the ancient Celtic goddess, who watches over the interests of our world. She will always protect Arthur, the ideal king. And she is trying to make justice in the divided old Britain.

Yes, King Arthur needs Excalibur or he only would be a dictator. He is trying to create a kind of democracy in the early Middle Ages. The king would possess the executive power, the Knights of the Roundtable the legislative, and justice would reign on our Earth. Beautiful, isn’t it?

In the 21st century, we are still waiting for Excalibur!

Enjoy your day, Yareah friends. Art is everywhere and up to you!

**‘Knights of the Roundtable: King Arthur’ is directed by Guy Ritchie and written by Joby Harold. The film stars Charlie Hunnam as Arthur.

Lord's Pavilion

As the cricket season draws to a close, Marylebone Cricket Club (MCC) can report a surge in popularity for guests seeking a full day of luxury hospitality at Lord’s during a Test Match in 2016. In the Home of Cricket’s most iconic venues – the Captains’ Lounge and Marylebone Suite – hospitality packages which included a hearty breakfast, sumptuous four-course lunch and luxury afternoon tea, sold out quickly for the first three days of the England v Sri Lanka and England v Pakistan Investec Test Matches. Private Boxes with the best views of the action for up to 18 guests also sold out fast for the same days. MCC revealed a sharp increase in revenue for its 2016 Sri Lanka Test Match hospitality packages compared with 2014 when the team last played England at Lord’s. Revenues for hospitality were up by nearly 30% over the same period in 2014 whilst private box sale revenues were up by a healthy 60%. Nick Kenton, MCC Head of Sales, Meetings & Events and Hospitality, said: “2016 has been a fantastic year for enjoying a day of cricket whilst experiencing the very best food, drink and hospitality that Lord’s has to offer. “This year’s sales figures show that hospitality packages at Lord’s were in huge demand and continue to be a key part of the summer sporting calendar.” Lord’s also expects high demand for its new hospitality packages, to be released this autumn for 2017 matches. These include England v South Africa from 6th to 10th July and England v West Indies from 7th to 11th September. Packages for the England v Ireland Royal London One-Day International on 7th May 2017 are also expected to sell out in record time. Details of all hospitality options at Lord’s can be found on its website
