Charlie Hunnam has been a part of some pretty successful shows/movies over the past few years. Although the Sons of Anarchy star is on the rise in Hollywood, his blockbuster movie last summer, King Arthur: Legend of the Sword, was a complete flop. It’s already been a year since the film bombed in theaters, and Hunnam recently opened up about how he felt when the movie failed to live up to expectations.
Although the project was directed by Guy Ritchie, Legend of the Sword only made $15 million on opening night. Warner Bros. ended up losing millions of dollars on the movie, but Hunnam wasn’t too disappointed by the bomb.

Instead, the actor admitted that he has pretty thick skin when it comes to facing failure, and he still feels lucky to be in the business of making movies.
According to Cinema Blend, Hunnam also confessed that he does not feel a lot of attachment to a movie once it hits theaters. While he enjoys the acting process — and considers it “sacred and beautiful — the Lost City of Z star feels distant once the movie is out of the editing room.
He also does not feel like he has a stake in the success or failure of a film once it is released and is at peace with whatever happens.
While King Arthur was not a commercial success, that does not necessarily mean it was a bad movie. The film opened in theaters against some pretty stiff competition, including Alien: Covenant and Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2.

Perhaps it would have been more successful it was released at a different time, which is unfortunate for everyone who worked hard on the movie.
Charlie Hunnam is currently promoting the release of his next film, Papillon, which also stars Rami Malek. The movie is currently out in theaters.
