King Arthur, placing No. 3 domestically, needs to do major business overseas, but early returns weren't promising.

"King Arthur" has suffered from a mix of negative reviews with it sitting at 27% on Rotten Tomatoes. The opening scene is just as bonkers as it sounds and if the movie had kept up that weirdness for the entire production it would have been better.
