DELIGHTFUL FIRST TRAILER FOR EXCALIBUR MODERN ADVENTURE 'THE KID WHO WOULD BE KING' WITH ASHBOURNE SERKIS, PATRICK STEWART, REBECCA FERGUSON

'THE KID WHO WOULD BE KING'
OLD SCHOOL MAGIC MEETS THE MODERN WORLD
The only thing the spy has for you today is a rather cute and innocently English trailer for THE KID WHO WOULD BE KING family adventure
Joe Cornish wrote and directed the movie
alongside the first poster for the movie which is out in UK and France next February before moving to Russia and USA in March.

THE KID WHO WOULD BE KING follows Alex (Andy's son Ashbourne Serkis the kid from Taboo epic series) who 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. Tom Taylor and Celia's son Angus Imrie also star!

    1. I love how it is all innocent, decent, wholesome fun, not grim, gory and dark like in Hollywood

  3. What a cute film. It really does look like an innocent and enjoyable family film. We've been sorely lacking in these types of films for quite some time, so this will be a breath of fresh air.

    1. this is the same difference I notice in British YA books versus the American ones.

    2. I agree. It's sad how we are constantly pushing adult issues on children in their YA novels.

    3. it's terrible, and not just in violence also language. I did Philip Reeve's Mortal Engines this year written in very nice, elegant, appropriate, swearing free, delightful British English and it is worlds away from most of criminally gritty, foul and bloody American YA books written in overly simplistic and primitive language which almost makes the reader more stupid.

  4. Delightful trailer, indeed. Cute kids, but it doesn't seem just another kids movie. We 've got here real swords and dangers.

  6. I love the old meets modern take. To have a Google and Mario Kart reference is awesome. I got excited for it.
