The legend of King Arthur is brought to life to vibrant effect in Joe Cornish’s endearing movie. Set in contemporary times, it tells of Alex, a boy who thinks he’s ordinary and spends his days battling school bullies. His life is transformed when he stumbles upon the sword in the stone of Excalibur. Joining forces with the wizard Merlin, he’s tasked with taking on an evil enchantress - and discovers a destiny he could never have dreamed of.

Ages 7+

For first-time discoverers of King Arthur and his knights, this modern-day retelling from cult-hero Joe Cornish is bound to delight. Complete with a fantastic new interpretation of Merlin.
