Movie review: ‘The Kid Who Would Be King’ triumphs in bringing King Arthur to a modern age

It's been eight years since Joe Cornish's directorial debut, "Attack the Block," a ferociously funny and fresh alien invasion flick that introduced audiences to John Boyega, who would go on to rule the universe in "Star Wars."
