Years after the release of “Attack the Block” which helped launch the careers of John Boyega and Jodie Whittaker, filmmaker Joe Cornish returns with the new Arthurian-legend in contemporary times fantasy drama “The Kid Who Would Be King”.
In the film, Alex thinks he’s just another nobody until he stumbles upon the mythical Sword in the Stone, Excalibur. Now, he must unite his friends and enemies into a band of knights and, together with the legendary wizard Merlin, take on the wicked enchantress Morgana.
Louis Ashbourne Serkis, Dean Chaumoo, Tom Taylor, Rhianna Doris, and Angus Imrie star while Rebecca Ferguson plays Morgana Le Fay and Patrick Stewart is Merlin. The film is released January 25th in the U.S. and February 15th in the U.K.
