This week on The First Run, Matt & Chris discuss the family adventure film, ‘The Kid Who Would Be King’. It’s the latest adaption of the King Arthur legend hits the big screen, written and directed by Joe Cornish (‘Attack The Block’). Is the film a rollicking adventure or yet another failed attempt to adapt the classic story?

But then something goes terribly wrong with his IRA. Seriously.
