5. Hadn't heard of this adaption..
Hmmm.. let see:

Based on a more realistic portrayal of "Arthur" than has ever been presented onscreen. The film will focus on the history and politics of the period during which Arthur ruled -- when the Roman empire collapsed and skirmishes over power broke out in outlying countries -- as opposed to the mystical elements of the tale on which past Arthur films have focused.

Sound accurate? They were supposed to avoid the old Arthur cliches according to the literature. This one slipped under my radar.
