It’s a parent’s worst nightmare: kids with sharp objects. But running with scissors has got nothing on running with sharp swords against magically animated trees in The Kid Who Would Be King. 20th Century Fox has released a new The Kid Who Would Be King clip, showcasing the titular kid Alex Elliot (Louis Ashbourne Serkis) as he and his fellow classmates train to fight with swords with some guidance from a young Merlin (Angus Imrie).
Joe Cornish made waves with his directorial debut Attack the Block, but his upcoming feature The Kid Who Would Be King remains a bit baffling. Is it a Harry Potter knock-off that got lost in time? How did they get Patrick Stewart and Rebecca Ferguson to sign on to this? What on earth is the kid playing Merlin doing?
Imrie, who is best known for his role in BBC Radio 4’s long-running drama serial The Archers, gets the spotlight in this clip, where he makes some…acting choices. Apart from looking like a stretched out version of every pasty British teenager, Imrie is singularly flamboyant in this clip in a way that I’m not sure how to react to it. Maybe this movie will be some sort of high-camp masterpiece? I have no idea what to expect for The Kid Who Would Be King, but guess we’ll find out soon when it hits theaters later this month.
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.
Fox releases the second trailer for The Kid Who Would Be King along with new character posters, showing that the legend of King Arthur’s “Sword in the Stone” is alive and well, and with a famous actor’s son in the lead role.
Directed by Joe Cornish – the visionary behind the 2011 film Attack the Block, starring a pre-Star Wars John Boyega – The Kid Who Would Be King is the latest big screen spin on the magical Excalibur story. In Cornish’s version, Andy Serkis’ son, Louis Ashbourne Serkis, stars as Alexander Elliot, a 12-year-old who gets bullied and struggles to assert himself. That all changes when he discovers a mysterious sword, thus prompting a modern fantasy tale full of wink-of-the-eye humor and young adult themes.
Last October, The Kid Who Would Be King’s first trailer focused on a “tough world,” in which Alexander contemplates change, along with his new friend Merlin, the legendary wizard who takes the form of a 16-year-old in order to look after an icon-in-the-making. Along with directing The Kid Who Would Be King, Cornish also wrote the screenplay, and the film features Rebecca Ferguson (Mission: Impossible – Fallout) as the antagonist Morgana, along with The Dark Tower’s Tom Taylor. In addition, both Patrick Stewart and Angus Imrie portray Merlin.
Our latest look at the second genre feature from director Joe Cornish (Attack the Block) wastes no time in reminding us that the studio, 20th Century Fox, delivered fantastical films like Night at the Museum and Percy Jackson. Even the characters in the trailer mention Harry Potter and Star Wars, driving home that this is one of those epic world-building kind of movies.
Also written by Cornish, the feature stars Louis Ashbourne Serkis (Andy Serkis’ son) as Alexander Elliot, a bullied schoolboy who discovers the sword of King Arthur (aka Excalibur) at a construction site. As a result, he must assemble his own Knights of the Round Table and prevent the evil witch Morgana (Rebecca Ferguson) from taking over the world.
Helping Alex on his quest is the wizard Merlin (Patrick Stewart), who takes the form of a younger man (Angus Imrie) in order to blend in with the youths of Britain.
Speaking to Empire Magazine for the publication’s preview of 2019, Cornish revealed that the idea for this film had been gestating for 35 years, thought up when he was just 13 years old. Originally titled 20th Century Hero, the name was dropped once humanity rang in the new millennium. Even so, ideas like the sword popping out of a bathtub stuck with the filmmaker all these years; his teenage doodles made it into the finished product. Updating the Arthurian legend for modern day was a no-brainer.
“The good thing is, it never happened,” Cornish told Empire. “It’s all poetic myth, and therefore it can be written and rewritten by each generation. That’s what I did. I took from it what I thought was useful and the rest of it — the boring stuff — I chucked out.”
The Kid Who Would Be King (the title being an ode to John Huston’s The Man Who Would Be King) hits theaters Jan. 25. The long awaited follow up from Attack the Block director Joe Cornish is finally here – and it’s exactly the kind of genre-bending adventure you might expect! The Kid Who Would Be King brings Arthurian legend and the Knights of the Round Table to modern day London and stars Louis Ashbourne Serkis (son of Andy), Rebecca Ferguson (Mission: Impossible – Fallout), and Patrick Stewart as Merlin.
The Kid Who Would Be King arrives in theatres on January 25th, but That Shelf wants to send you and a friend to advance screenings of the movie in Toronto, Vancouver, and Montreal on Saturday, January 19th – courtesy of 20th Century Fox!
