Joe Cornish, who previously brought us the delightful Attack the Block, finally got off his duff and directed a second film, strongly making the case that when it comes to working with child actors and genre adventure films he’s at the top of his game. A young boy in modern day finds Excalibur in a stone and discovers he has to learn the nobility of the knights (and teach others) in order to stop the return of King Arthur’s half-sister and greatest enemy, Morgana Le Fay. Chris, Michael, and Ben got to see this and can’t wait to tell you about it.

Born in the wilds of northern Virginia, in 1992 Chris managed to put all of his survival skills to use and barely escaped with his life to Austin Texas, where ever since he’s dabbled in everything from plumber’s assistant to sandwich maker, from band to bar management. An opportunity to see theatrical release films for free, by becoming a critic on a local public access show called “The Reel Deal”, turned into a full time job when Chris and his friends decided to take it to the internet. They built the site Spill.com, adding multiple podcasts and animated features, to no small amount of success. During this time, a fortuitous friendship sprung up between Chris and young Brian Salisbury, who was also a local film critic, and they merged their forces of will, and their laundry list of ideas for shows, to eventually build this paradise you see before you.
