Question: What breed of horses are used for Arthur and his knights? It looks like Galahad is using a different breed of horse than everyone else.
Question: Throughout the movie, the Samaritan knights shout the word "rus" at each other; Bors in particular says it a lot. Does anyone know what significance this word has or what it means?
New this month Answer: Rus in Latin means country or land. The whole movie was based on winning freedom. Fighting and dying to win them their home, their country. Arturius chooses Britain as his land and his countrymen to defend. So Rus in this context, being they are Roman, their battle cry means 'for country', not Rome but Britain. For home.
Question: What does the Saxon who rallies the troops actually yell? He yells it twice: once, after Cerdic meets with Arthur in front of the wall and gives the order to "prepare the men for battle", and then a second time when Cerdic gives the signal after the only survivor of the first "wave" comes back through the wall. (And I don't mean his cry of "battle formation.").
Answer: He yells 'schlachtung fyand!' - 'slaughter the enemy!'.
Question: I watched the directors cut and there was not wedding scene. I heard about it, but didn't see the original, so I was wondering what happened, who it was between and why it was cut.
Answer: The unrated, director's cut that I purchased has the wedding scene (between Guinevere and Arthur) though it does have an alternate ending without the wedding. However, rumor has it that the scene was added against the director's wishes to make it more family friendly and provide a happy ending. Perhaps your version is more in align with the director's original vision.
Question: In one of the trailers for King Arthur there is a scene with Arthur kneeling on the ground on his knees in the field with all the mounds, holding Excalibur and saying 'Lord, guide my hand and Excalibur' (you can find it in the new trailer on the 'King Arthur' website), but this scene never appeared in the film, why?
Answer: This often happens. The director chooses scenes for the trailer, then decides to cut them from the theatrical version of the film. Look for it in the deleted scnes section of the DVD whenit is released.
