The Kid Who Would Be King

The latest trend is to make an origins story dark and gritty. Those family friendly films seems too old-fashioned. But if you are tired of the dark and gritty and are looking for something of a lighter fare, then The Kid Who Would Be King could be just the film you are looking for.

It sees Alex (Ashbourne Serkis), a kid who thinks he is a nobody, stumbling upon the legendary Excalibur. He is then pulled into a world where he must unite with a band of knights and work together with Merlin (Patrick Stewart) to defeat Morgana (Rebecca Ferguson). Check out the trailer for the film below along with a poster.

Last week on FX’s Taboo, we went off the deep end. James Delaney (Tom Hardy) is trying desperately to get out of 1814 London with with a supply of gunpowder, so he can sail to Nootka Sound and trade with the Chinese. Standing in his way is greedy American Dumbarton (Michael Kelly), who blackmails him for his entire payload of powder. Add to this, what he truly desires more than anything is his half sister Zilpha (Oona Chaplin). She, in the best scene in the entire series, dispatched of her abusive husband Thorne (Jefferson Hall), and went to James only for him to nearly strangle her in a bizarre sexual encounter, that was interrupted by visions of his native mother. His visions take an even worse turn when a drunken stumbling Delaney wakes up next to the dead body of Winter (Ruby-May Martinwood), the daughter of Helga (Franka Potente) who was a member of his “League of the Damned” but now may prove his biggest threat. Helga, the East India Company, the Americans, and the Crown… all are after James Delaney as we enter the penultimate episode of Taboo.
