Podcast | The Kid Who Would Be King With Joe Cornish

A conversation with Joe Cornish about his epic new film The Kid Who Would Be King.

Sam talks to writer-director Joe Cornish, about his new film The Kid Who Would Be King. In cinemas now.


Seven years after his sci-fi sensation Attack The Block, director Joe Cornish returns with a hugely enjoyable mash-up of old-school magic and the modern world.

Alex (Louis Ashbourne Serkis) thinks he’s just an ordinary boy, living an ordinary life… until he stumbles upon the mythical sword of King Arthur and frees it from its stone (In a building site, no less). But can this kid be king? With the help of legendary wizard Merlin (Patrick Stewart), Alex must unite friends and enemies alike and defeat the wicked enchantress Morgana (Rebecca Ferguson) in the battle of a lifetime.

Beat an army, slay a demon and save the world? No pressure, kid.

The Kid Who Would Be King is in cinemas today.
