First Trailer for Joe Cornish's Adventure 'The Kid Who Would Be King'

The first trailer for The Kid Who Would Be King, the upcoming British fantasy film based on the legend of King Arthur, was released Wednesday. Check out the The Kid Who Would be King trailer below! With the most powerful sword in history in the hands of the most powerless schoolboy in Britain, an epic adventure begins as Alex and his friends must thwart a medieval villain named Morgana (Rebecca Ferguson), who is hell-bent on destroying the world.

The Kid Who Would Be King may seem like yet another genre film that transplants ancient lore into a modern setting, centering the drama on a less-than-prepared average protagonist. He's already banked appearances in things like the shelved-and-soon-to-be-released Benedict Cumberbatch/Michael Shannon historical drama, The Current War, BBC miniseries SS-GB, Tom Hardy FX thriller series, Taboo, movie sequel Alice Through the Looking Glass.

Also in the cast is Angus Imrie as a sprightly young Merlin, Patrick Stewart as his older counterpart, Dean Chaumoo as Alex's best made Bedders, and Tom Taylor and Rhianna Doris as bullies-turned-allies Lance and Kaye. Plus, Patrick Stewart will play Merlin in his true (elderly wizard) form.

Iran urges swift Pakistan action on abducted security forces
Pakistan's Foreign Ministry said on Tuesday both militaries were working to ascertain the whereabouts of the Iranians. Last month militants hit a military parade in Iran's city of Ahvaz, killing 24 people and wounding over 60.

After arriving on the scene back in 2011 with his mightly impressive directorial debut Attack the Block (along with a writing credit on The Adventures of Tintin: The Secret of the Unicorn), it's been a long wait to see what Joe Cornish would do next.

Working Title's Tim Bevan and Eric Fellner will produce the film alongside Nira Park of Big Talk Pictures.

The Kid Who Would be King is scheduled to hit the theaters on March 1, 2019.
