King Arthur and the Knights of the Round Table (2017)
Facing certain defeat, Merlin banishes the evil enchantress Morgana, and her son Mordred, to the ends of the universe. Vowing revenge, Morgana and her son finally return to Earth 1500 years later, hell-bent on destroying every last modern day descendant of King Arthur and his Knights of the Round Table.
REVIEW: The Asylum's upcoming movie due out May 2nd, King Arthur and the Knights of the Round Table, an obvious mockbuster on the upcoming Hollywood movie starring Charlie Hunnam, King Arthur: Legend of the Sword, is a similar idea to some of their other movies where they take a classic story or legend and update it to take place in the modern age. Movies like 3 Musketeers, The 7 Adventures of Sinbad, 30,000 Leagues Under the Sea, 2010: Moby Dick, and most recently Sinbad and the War of the Furies are just a handful of their titles that were all done like that, to varying degrees of success. Out of all those types of movies by them however, this just may be my personal favorite one!
However, lately they've been interacting with fans on a more regular basis on social media, advertising a wider range of their movies, and even updated their website with a brand new layout and including a section dedicated to In-Production and Upcoming movies, making it far easier to see what they have coming down the pipe. Add to that the fact that Jared Cohn's King Arthur and the Knights of the Round Table, a few minor issues aside, is the first Asylum movie in close to a year that I've really genuinely loved. Put that all together and I'm starting to feel the Asylum love returning. As long as they can continue to stay on this current path they've gotten on, I think I'll get back there rather quickly.
