On the last day of the viewing of Magna Carta, LACMA will premiere Ironclad, an ultra-violent action thriller that tells the true story of a motley crew of tough, battle hardened warriors, who withstood several brutal and bloody months under siege, in a desperate bid to defend their country's freedom. It is the year 1215 and the rebel barons of England have forced their despised King John (Paul Giamatti) to put his royal seal to the Magna Carta, a noble, seminal document that upheld the rights of free men. Yet within months, the King reneged on his word and assembled a mercenary army with the intention of bringing the barons and the country back under his tyrannical rule. A determined group of Knights Templar defend Rochester castle, a place that would become the symbol of the rebel's momentous struggle for justice and freedom. The superb ensemble cast includes Brian Cox, James Purefoy, and Kate Mara.
