New knights take charge in character posters for The Kid Who Would Be King

It's been quite the wait for those of us who have been eager to see something new from Joe Cornish after 2011's ATTACK THE BLOCK, but that wait is nearly over as the release of THE KID WHO WOULD BE KING is now less than a month away. The upcoming fantasy adventure stars Louis Serkis as Alex, a twelve-year-old British schoolboy whose everyday problems are dwarfed by his discovery of the mythical sword Excalibur. Now, 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, who is hell-bent on destroying the world. 

Along with a brand-new trailer, 20th Century Fox have released a small set of character posters featuring Alex and his pals ready to save the world from the forces of darkness.

The official synopsis for THE KID WHO WOULD BE KING:

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 is set for a January 25, 2019 release.
