The new trailer for Starz’s upcoming show Camelot came out today. This new series premieres on April 1st. There is a lot of speculation on how this show will compare to the highly anticipated Game of Thrones, HBO’s newest series, also premiering in April, on the 17th.
Here’s what i09.com had to say:
“Camelot” certainly has a lot going for it. It’s being produced by “Torchwood’s” Chris Chibnall. The series has an astounding list of actors attached to the project, including Joseph Fiennes, Eva Green, Jamie Campbell Bower, Tamsin Egerton, Peter Mooney, and Clive Standen. While “Game of Thrones” pulls its material straight from the epic novels penned by George R.R. Martin, “Camelot” intends to reinterpret and demystify the legend of King Arthur, giving it the gritty makeover treatment everybody loves these days. As of right now, it seems like a bit of a toss-up.
I’m betting it will be interesting following the stats of these two similar, awesome-sounding shows to see which one ultimately pulls ahead. And just a warning, there are a few explicit glances, so watch at your own discretion.[via i09.com]
