The article studies the image of King Arthur in modern cinema on the feature film “King Arthur: Legend of the Sword” (2017) directed by Guy Ritchie. Verbal and non-verbal parts of the image were studied by authors in the current paper. In order to study the verbal part analysis of word definition, contextual analysis, and stylistics analysis were chosen. The non-verbal part was interpreted by consulting handbooks on non-verbal communication. Afterwards comparative analysis of the generalised image of King Arthur and his cinema image was preceded. The authors concluded that the cinema character comprises a set of components that correspond to the components of the literary character of King Arthur.
