20th Century Studios has launched a brand new trailer for The King’s Man, the Kingsman origin story prequel film. The movie traces the origins of the spy franchise that director Matthew Vaughn dropped at life in 2014’s Kingsman: The Secret Service and 2017’s sequel Kingsman: The Golden Circle. The official logline teases that “a collection of history’s worst tyrants and criminal masterminds gather to plot a war to wipe out millions,” which in flip spurs the creation of Kingsman. This contains Rasputin, as performed by Rhys Ifans, and a bunch of different characters we’ll little question meet later.
The King’s Man was made in a short time and quietly, with the solid solely being confirmed after cameras had begun to roll. It was initially meant to hit theaters in November 2019, however was subsequently shifted to February 2020 after Disney took management of 20th Century Fox. And then the discharge date was pushed additional again final fall.
This trailer definitely has a extra Disney-fied vibe to it as put collectively by their advertising and marketing division, however hopefully Vaughn is ready to follow his ultra-violent R-rating. It’s actually been so lengthy since this film was introduced that I sort of forgot it was coming, however the trailer insists the movie will probably be launched “only in theaters” this September, so it’s good to realize it’s not being earmarked for a dump on Disney-owned Hulu or going PVOD. Indeed, within the age of COVID-19, Disney cancelled the theatrical launch of its large funds Artemis Fowl and launched that movie straight to Disney+, though the scathing critiques recommend the movie’s high quality could have had one thing to do with that call.
As a fan of Vaughn’s and the Kingsman franchise, I’m trying ahead to The King’s Man and I hope Vaughn is ready to full his movie sequence. He mentioned beforehand he hoped to wrap issues up with yet one more Kingsman sequel starring Taron Egerton, however with Disney now accountable for 20th Century’s franchises, who is aware of what the longer term holds.
