The final trailer for the British spy thriller ‘The King’s Man’ has dropped the week before its scheduled release in theaters. The film serves as a prequel to 2014’s ‘The Kingsman: The Secret Service’ and its 2017 subsequent sequel.
Originally slated to be released in November 2019, the movie was pushed back several times due to pandemic lockdown mandates affecting cinemas.
The plot is described as follows, “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.”

The movie sees the return of director Matthew Vaughn who has worked on every film thus far in the franchise. It stars Ralph Fiennes, Gemma Arterton, Rhys Ifans, Matthew Goode, Tom Hollander, Harris Dickinson, Daniel Brühl, Djimon Hounsou, and Charles Dance.
“Get up close and personal with the villains of 20th Century Studios’ The King’s Man and watch the action-packed, brand-new trailer released today. The King’s Man, a prequel to Matthew Vaughn’s Kingsman films set in the World War I era, brings historical villains to life with larger-than-life personas and Vaughn’s signature style and thrilling action. Check them out—from Mata Hari to Rasputin—and get ready to see them all in action next Wednesday, December 22, when The King’s Man hits theaters,” Disney said on their website.
The movies are based on the Icon Comics series ‘The Secret Service,’ created by writer Mark Millar and artist Dave Gibbons. Originally, MI6 was frequently mentioned in the comic books, but following the release of the newer graphic novels they were removed as the series was retooled as “Kingsman.”
A third film is planned as well as a spin-off titled “Statesmen.”
