Still Not Feeling It: New Clip For THE KID WHO WOULD BE KING

Twenty years ago I’d probably have been excited at the idea of The Kid Who Would Be King. However, I’m far from thrilled at the prospect of Joe Cornish’s cheap and derivative looking Arthurian tale.

Maybe I’m just old and cranky, but this new clip still isn’t doing it for me.

The synopsis:

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 Kid Who Would Be King opens on 15 February 2019.
