David Beckham in King Arthur slated by Piers Morgan

"King Arthur: Legend Of The Sword" will hit the theatres this Friday.

YouTubers aren't the only people to criticise David Beckham as Piers Morgan gave a sarcastic review of him on Good Morning Britain too. It's not a new career or something I want to go into.

The film stars Charlie Hunnam, Jude Law, Astrid Bergès-Frisbey, Djimon Hounsou, Aidan Gillen, Eric Bana, Poppy Delevingne and Annabelle Wallis.

Guy Ritchie's latest film, King Arthur: Legend of the Sword, premiered at the TCL Chinese Theater on Monday night before thousands of screaming fans and a few armored swordsmen.

Beckham plays a tough knight, Trigger, in a brief cameo role for which his famous visage was transformed using prosthetics. "You kind of love that community feel", the father-of-four revealed. He'd worked with a dialect coach, and maybe an acting coach.

However, as both characters experience denial, Hunnam foreshadows that, like Jax Teller, King Arthur will not succeed in rejecting his inevitable future. However, he found success by adopting a more accessible approach to the narrative, implementing humor throughout the film, alongside mystical creatures and heavy action sequences; which is why the movie is an iconoclastic rendition of the legend.

"Just heard a clip of Mr David Beckham in the new King Arthur film oh god it's cringe.' wrote another".

Actor Charlie Hunnam has defended David Beckham's acting talents, describing his King Arthur co-star as a "humble" and "serious" actor.

"I watched it about 15 times when I was six or seven, and I was a little bit young to understand some of the big things that they were exploring - big questions, eternal questions", he admitted.

Beckham, who also had a cameo in Ritchie's previous movie, The Man from U.N.C.L.E. There are times through the movie where Law actually looks like he's going to a club in LA with his wardrobe rather than ruling the kingdom of Camelot.
