“The Kid Who Would Be King” released in theaters back in January. The film opened in fourth-place overall on the domestic charts with $7.1M, just behind “Glass,” “The Upside,” and “Aquaman.” Joe Cornish wrote and directed the movie, which features Rebecca Ferguson and Patrick Stewart. “The Kid Who Would Be King” made $16.6M domestically for the studio while the film was in theaters, and almost $26M worldwide.
The story follows Alex, a kid that thinks he’s just another nobody while getting bullied at school and told what to do by his teachers. Things change when he stumbles upon the mythical Sword in the Stone, Excalibur. Now, with the help of the legendary wizard Merlin, he must unite his friends and schoolyard enemies into an allied band of knights to defeat the wicked enchantress Morgana. The studio teased the film adding “With the future at stake, Alex must become the great leader he never dreamed he could be and save the world.”
At the end of March tiny moviegoers can see “DUMBO” in theaters. Tim Burton directed the live-action adaptation for Disney, and the movie stars Colin Farrell, Danny DeVito, Michael Keaton, and Eva Green. The PG-13 crowd can see “Captain Marvel” this weekend with Brie Larson, and “SHAZAM!” is hitting theaters on April 5th. David F. Sandberg directed “SHAZAM!” for Warner Bros. Pictures, the film features Zachary Levi and Mark Strong.
