A Magical Tale
Mark Kermode just reviewed Joe Cornish’s The Kid Who Would Be King, out in cinemas now, for BBC Radio Five…
Old school magic meets the modern world in the epic adventure THE KID WHO WOULD BE KING. Alex (Ashbourne Serkis) 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 (Stewart), take on the wicked enchantress Morgana (Ferguson). With the future at stake, Alex must become the great leader he never dreamed he could be.
THE KID WHO WOULD BE KING arrives in UK cinemas 15 February 2019.
