I hadn’t heard of this movie/book until the trailer arrived earlier this week. The Kid Who Would Be King is about some modern day ragamuffin finding Excalibur and needing to go all King Arthur on some evil death knights.
Personally, I’m a little tired of ‘chosen one’ stories, but this trailer won me over as the heroic king stuff started to include the kid’s entire class. That was neat. Also, it’s from the same writer/director of Attack the Block, Joe Cornish. Attack the Block is a brilliant take on the alien invasion movie, so I have nothing but faith in this guy. Maybe this will be good!
The Kid Who Would Be King comes out on Feb. 15.
