Head to the Theaters this Weekend to See "The King's Daughter" - It's a Movie Not to Be Missed on the Big Screen *Exclusively in Theaters Jan 21st (Review)

Disclosure: I was sent a screener from the vendor in exchange for an honest review. All views shared are mine and mine alone.

I have to say the COVID pandemic has really thrown me for a loop when it comes to new movie releases in theaters.  In our area, the few theaters we do have, have been playing movies from years ago, just to get people to rent out theater space to watch.  Many new movies have been releasing in theaters as well as on OnDemand, or to different streaming platforms -- so, you really don't need or want to go to the movies, when you can see it at home. But, many people, including myself and my family, still enjoy going to the theaters to see movies on the big screen and with the amazing surround sound. You really can't get that feeling at home, even though at times it is convenient to just click on a new release and watch it in your pajamas.

One movie that my girls and I have had on our radar and that we have been looking forward to seeing in theaters is "The King's Daughter," which stars Pierce Brosnan, Kaya Scodelario, William Hunt, and Fan Bingbing, to name a few.  I was so excited to surprise the girls a couple days before it released in theaters, with access to an advance screening of the movie.  Even though we planned to see it on the big screen, I knew my girls would be over the moon excited about seeing this movie, which they have been eagerly counting down the days to.  One of my girls loves mermaids, while the other is big into horses -- and this movie has them both, along with a great story and talented cast, who work so well together.

Don't worry, I will not be giving any spoilers, so no need to stop reading.  My post today is to share more about the movie, in case you weren't aware of it releasing this past Friday, Jan. 21st exclusively in theaters, as well as share the movie trailer. This movie, which is rated PG-13 is about a king who wants to live and rule forever, and in order to do so, he needs the magic of a mermaid to make him immortal.  But, things become complicated when he realizes he has a daughter he never knew about, and she comes to live at the castle. Her arrival complicates his desire to become immortal, as she stumbles upon the mermaid, and wants to desperately set her free.  His daughter finds out the plan of her estranged father, the king, and finds herself, along with the young seaman who captured her, looking for a way to set the mermaid free so that she can return to her family.  No good movie is without a romantic story line, and this movie doesn't disappoint on that end.  The king's daughter and the young seaman fall for each other, just at the same time the king arranges a marriage between her and another royal prince turned king, as he needs money to continue to rule and keep his power.  You will find yourself rooting for the king's daughter and the young seaman, and hope they can free the mermaid.  There are so many twists and turns in this movie, that you will find yourself glued to the screen and not being able to look away.  I, for one, really enjoyed this movie, and didn't want it to end.  The scenery is oh so breathtaking, and will really pull you into the movie and wish you were there in person in the lovely gardens and the castle's well manicured grounds.  The magical mermaid was stunning, and really had you wishing she could return back to the sea.  My girls and I were all smiles when this movie ended, and are so looking forward to seeing this movie tomorrow in the theater, on the big screen.  And, now we can't wait for it to also release to DVD and Digital, so that we can own it and watch it time and time again, as this is one of those movies you will not grow tired of.

If you are looking for something to do this weekend and haven't been to the theaters in awhile, why not make your return and see an amazing movie.  "The King's Daughter" is now exclusively in theaters, as of Friday, Jan. 21st.  

Movie Summary:

"Known as The Sun King, Louis XIV (Pierce Brosnan) is the most powerful and influential monarch on the planet. 

Obsessed with his own mortality and the future of France, Louis turns to his spiritual advisor, Père La Chaise (William Hurt), and the royal physician to help him obtain the key to immortality.  Believing a mermaid (Fan Bingbing) contains a force that grants everlasting life, Louis commissions a young sea captain to search the seas and capture the mystical creature. Further complicating his plans is his orphaned daughter, Marie-Josèphe (Kaya Scodelario), who returns to court with an abundance of elegance and an inherent defiance of authority. 

With a rare solar eclipse approaching, Louis will discover where his daughter’s true loyalties lie as he races against time to extract the mermaid’s life-giving force."
