King Arthur


The movie be­gins with Arthur C. Clarke cham­pi­oning the po­ten­tial of a fridge-freezer-sized com­puter. The archival footage is to re­mind dig­i­tal na­tives that ma­chines weren’t al­ways pocket-sized. “It had a sec­ondary im­pact,” says Danny Boyle. “It told you that Steve was not the sole guy re­spon­si­ble for imag­in­ing the fu­ture.” Later in the film, there’s a poster of Alan Tur­ing, which a jour­nal­ist fails to recog­nise: “’Cause he doesn’t look like Bene­dict Cum­ber­batch.”
