See the new trailer here:
The new trailer takes us back to where it all started for the independent secret intelligence agency. “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” – 20th Century Studios, YouTube.
It opens up with a bunch of dubious looking characters sitting around a long table in what looks like an abandoned old mansion. There is a plot that will send the world into a vicious state of chaos to which these scoundrels hope to profit. A rusty Scots voice pipes up, “my flock, this will not be the war of heroes”. As the trailer goes on, we don’t ever see a face to match this mysterious tone. However, we do get a glimpse of one grizzly looking Rasputin.
Fret not though, it looks as though The Kingsman will attend to this atrocity and save the day. This gritty action origin is told through the eyes of the Duke of Oxford (Ralph Fiennes) and takes us back in time to the birth of The Kingsman secret service agency whilst fighting off a global war.
Featuring performances from: Ralph Fiennes, Harris Dickinson, Gemma Arterton, Charles Dance, Rhys Ifans, Tom Hollander, Djimon Hounsou, Matthew Goode, and Arron Taylor-Johnson.
The King’s Man was due to be released in February this year but was pushed back due to the Disney takeover of the studio. According to 20th Century Studios, the movie will now be released in cinemas on 18 September 2020.
Since the mouse outran the fox and acquired their assets, the brand name 20th Century Fox was switched to ‘20th Century Studios’. Fox already had a lot of new movies on their books ready to be released in 2020, that their new owners will now need to deal with. These include; Steven Spielberg’s West Side Story and Avatar.
Both its predecessors were extremely successful at the box-office bringing in over $400 million worldwide, so it is no surprise that The King’s Man was re-routed towards a summer release.
We can’t wait to see this movie on the big screen this summer!
