The Kid Who Would Be King Trailer

It’s hard to believe that it has been seven years since Joe Cornish made his spectacular directorial debut with the alien invasion thriller Attack the Block. Cornish’s name has come up for a number of various projects but none came to fruition, leaving many to wonder just when we might get a new film from the creator of the film that introduced audiences to John Boyega and Jodie Whittaker. We finally know when we can see a new film from Joe Cornish, and that’ll be on January 25, 2019 with The Kid Who Would Be King. Today brings us the first trailer for Cornish’s adventure epic which takes a modern twist on various medieval fables.

Young Louis Ashbourne Serkis, son of Andy Serkis, stars as Alex, an average kid in England. Things change for Alex when he discovers the famed sword Excalibur embedded within the stone. The young boy removes the sword and becomes an unexpected leader who must bring about unity among his friends and various other famed mystics and knights, including Merlin (Patrick Stewart). The fate of the world hangs in the balance if Alex and his friends aren’t able to stop the evil creature Morgana (Rebecca Ferguson).

While the trailer makes The Kid Who Would Be King look like rather rote children’s fantasy, don’t bet against the immense wit of Joe Cornish. Attack the Block is a marvel livened with a razor-sharp wit that is present visually and in the film’s dialogue. I’m willing to guess that Cornish’s long-awaited follow up will feature that same sharp wit but in a movie more suitable for younger audiences. The Kid Who Would Be King is already one of my most anticipated movies of 2019, and I can’t wait to see it when it opens on January 25, 2019 from 20th Century Fox.

The official synopsis for The Kid Who Who Would Be King:

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.
