The Kid Who Would Be King — New Official Trailer


added: Thu, Dec 27th '18

As the fate of the world rests on the shoulders of a young bullied schoolboy, he must convince his fellow classmates to pick up arms, specifically swords, and shields.

Check out the new official trailer for "The Kid Who Would Be King," the new fantasy-adventure film from British writer-director Joe Cornish, of "Attack the Block" fame.

Inspired by the classic Arthurian legend, the film is a modern-day take on the tale of King Arthur's Knights of the Round Table, in which Louis Ashbourne Serkis (son of motion-capture actor Andy Serkis) stars as a 12-year-old British schoolboy named Alex who, after pulling a mythical sword, the legendary Excalibur, from a stone at an abandoned construction site, finds himself embarking on an epic four-day quest to stop an evil ancient sorceress from destroying the world.

Patrick Stewart co-stars in the film as the wizard Merlin, while Angus Imrie plays Merlin disguised as a young teen.

Rebecca Ferguson (Mission: Impossible - Fallout, The Greatest Showman) plays the medieval villainess Morgana, while rounding out the cast as Alex's band of would-be teen warriors are Tom Taylor, Rhianna Dorris, and Dean Chaumoo.

"The Kid Who Would Be King" is now scheduled to open in U.S. theaters January 25th. It will then open in the U.K. on February 15th.

Old school magic meets the modern world in the epic adventure THE KID WHO WOULD BE KING. Alex (Louis 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 (Patrick Stewart), take on the wicked enchantress Morgana (Rebecca Ferguson). With the future at stake, Alex must become the great leader he never dreamed he could be.
