The super-secret spy organization at the center of Mark Millar and director Matthew Vaughn’s Kingsman series gets a back story set during the Great War. Their first fight is with Rasputin.
The timeline winds backward to WWI era Europe; some of history’s worst tyrants and criminal masterminds are gathering to plot a war to end all wars, and wipe out millions. Someone has to stop them. Learn the origins of the first independent intelligence agency – the Kingsman – in The King’s Man.
The series has offered amazing fight scenes, which seems to be continuing based on this trailer – can’t wait to see that dogfight on a big screen. Millar’s low brow humor (not always my thing, I’ll admit) seems to have been toned down, but the one-liners seem to be intact. This feels more like Kingsman than previous trailers.
A new era brings in a new cast led by Ralph Fiennes with Matthew Goode, Aaron Taylor-Johnson, Tom Hollander, Djimon Hounsou, Harris Dickinson, Stanley Tucci, Daniel Brühl, and Charles Dance. It’s a fantastic bunch, nice to see Fiennes take on an action role. It’s been a bit.
This was supposed to come out late this February but was pushed back due to theater closures. Not 100% confident it’ll stick in this September spot, but we can hope.
