The King’s Man is finally arriving in theaters this fall on September 18. Directed by Matthew Vaughn, the Kingsmen prequel released a new trailer, offering an exciting new look at the blockbuster starring Ralph Fiennes. Check it out below.
Based on the Mark Millar and Dave Gibbons comic book series, The Secret Service, The King’s Man delves deep into the mythology behind the espionage collective known as Kingsman. Set in the early 1900s, this film follows a collection of the worst tyrants and criminal masterminds in history, all of whom gather to plot a war to wipe out millions of people, as one man races against time to put a stop to them.
The trailer showcases Ralph Fiennes as the Duke of Oxford, who brings his idealistic son Conrad (Harris Dickinson) into the Kingsmen in much the same way that Harry Hart (Colin Firth) would take Eggsy (Taron Egerton) under his wing nearly a century later. The King’s Man will showcase the important role Conrad will play in the Secret Service during its early days. At this point, it’s apparent that he shares a number of similarities to Taron Egerton’s Eggsy, though Conrad seems to have much more discipline from the jump than Eggsy did. On the other hand, Eggsy had a bit of an edge when he first started out, whereas Conrad appears to need more training.
The King’s Man marks the third film in the Kingsmen fanchise, following 2014’s “Kingsman: The Secret Service” and 2017’s “Kingsman: The Golden Circle. Vaughn is of course no stranger to translating comic books to the silver screen, having directed X-Men: First Class and the Kick-Ass films. The King’s Man will be released in cinemas on September 18, 2020.
