Check out David Beckham's cameo in King Arthur

Meanwhile, the star has also revealed that he used a sit-down chat to convince Ritchie to let him audition for King Arthur. The footage, captioned: "It was a pleasure to work with the King Arthur: Legend of the Sword team on such an wonderful film #KingArthur", shows David getting his make-up done on set for his role as "Blackleg leader" Trigger. But once he pulls the Excalibur sword from the stone, he is forced to acknowledge his true legacy.

Director Guy Ritchie's "King Arthur: Legend of the Sword" is a new take on the story of Camelot.

What we do know is that it's clearly not a poisoned chalice putting big name directors off, thanks to King Arthur director Guy Ritchie coming out to express his own interest in taking the gig.

Ritchie will join cast members Charlie Hunnam, Aidan Gillen and Poppy Delevingne on the red carpet on Wednesday to mark the movie's European premiere in London's Leicester Square.

Rachel Enton, Georgetown University: King Arthur is a myth that's been very popular and told many times, and this movie is done with an iconoclastic take on it. The screenplay, meanwhile, has been co-written by Guy, Lionel Wigram and Joby Harold ('Awake').

The Village Voice calls it "soul-crushingly generic", while Time Out says, "you'll groan".

"It's a misguided, fist-biter of a performance", Empire said.

Beckham - who worked with Ritchie on Man from U.N.C.L.E - said he was overcome with nerves after Ritchie threw him in at the deep end by forcing him to perform in front of hundreds of people on set. "I'd like to go out for beer with both of them", Hunnam said.

When Arthur asks Becks" character "Where do you want me?', he replies in a Cockney accent: 'Bouncing on my knee? "Where do you think I want you?"

Overall, I give King Arthur: Legend of the Sword 2 out of 4 stars.

The film, distributed by Warner Bros, began its global rollout in some countries yesterday and hits North American cinemas tomorrow.
