Attack The Block was an unexpected indie hot, not just in the UK but internationally too. The alien invasion flick propelled to of there stars into the international limelight John Boyega (Star Wars franchise) and Jodie Whittaker (Doctor Who). Since 2011, Joe Cornish has focused more on his writing credentials (Ant-Man) now nearly eight years later he’s returning to directing with The Kid Who Would Be King.
Back In October, the film’s first Trailer was released and like Attack The Block, this took us by surprise. Like his previous film, we do hope the film itself will do the same.
Today Twentieth Century Fox has released a brand new Poster. Which reeks in the spirit of Joe Cornish’s previous film. Will there be a second Trailer on the cards?
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 film also stars Louis Ashbourne Serkis, Dean Chaumoo, Tom Taylor, Rhianna Dorris, Angus Imrie, Patrick Stewart and Rebecca Ferguson.
The Kid Who Would Be King will be released in the UK and Ireland from 15th February 2019.
