After making $825 million from the first two movies Kingsman: The Secret Service and Kingsman: The Golden Circle, it should not come as a surprise that a third Kingman movie is set to be released by writer/director Matthew Vaughn.
This movie will chronicle the origins of the mysterious organisation with The King’s Man, which is a prequel to both the original and its sequel. The franchise is loosely based on Dave Gibbons and Mark Millar’s comic book series called The Kingsman. The comic follows the exploits of a secret intelligence organisation which is operating out of England without any government oversight.
The Kingsman movies are known for its raunchy humour and over the top action scenes, but in the prequel, they might take a more reserved approach as seen from its trailer.
When Will The King’s Man Release?
As far as The Hollywood Tribune knows, The King’s Man will release on 28th September of this year. The film was originally supposed to release on November 15, 2019, but was pushed back to February 14, 2020, and with Disney’s acquisition of 20st Century Fox in March 2019, it was further delayed to September of 2020.
Who’s In The Cast of The King’s Man?
Ralph Fiennes is playing the Duke of Oxford, a wealthy noble who created the secret intelligence organisation of King’s Man. He is joined by Harris Dickinson who is playing his son named Conrad, who wants to be a soldier but instead helps found the secret organisation.
Gemma Arterton, Djimon Hounsou appear as servants to the Duke of Oxford and are named Polly and Shola respectively. Rhys Ifans plays Grigori Rasputin, the renowned Russian mystic who assembles a group of international criminals to hatch a plot to murder millions.
The film also stars Charles Dance, Tom Hollander, Matthew Goode and Daniel Bruhl in other roles.
What is The King’s Man Plot?
The prequel called The King’s Man is the origin story for the organisation which plays at the centre of the first two Kingsman movies. As mentioned above Ralph Fiennes plays the Duke of Oxford, who founded the first independent secret intelligence organisation.
He is joined by his son Conrad played by actor Harris Dickinson, who is a protégé in the creation of this independent secret intelligence organisation. World War I would be serving as a backdrop for this film.
As criminals who are mysterious and nefarious assemble with evil intentions, members of the newly formed organisation of Kingsman operate without the government overlooking to preserve peace at any cost, but it will not be simple for them.
The official plot for The King’s Man goes like this, “As a collection of history’s worst tyrants and criminal masterminds gather to plot a war to wipe out millions, one man must race against time to stop them. Discover the origins of the very first independent intelligence agency in The King’s Man.”
Is There a Trailer available for The King’s Man?
The answer is yes. 20th Century Fox released a new trailer on 21st June 2020 which you can enjoy. The first teaser was released in July 2019 which teased the origins of the Kingsman organisation, but the full trailer was released in September 2019.
