#TRAILERCHEST: Kingsman goes all World War I in the first look at the prequel

The King's Man trailer

They’re going old school.

Welcome to #TRAILERCHEST, where we’re taking a look at the brand new trailer for The King’s Man.

Plot’s it all about? 

You know the Kingsman movies by now, surely.

Not terribly long before Rocketman, Taron Egerton broke out as a somewhat reformed youngster who is transformed into a sharp-suited James Bond type, only one who operates in a much more violent, over the top and mean-spirited world.

The first one was a hit and so we got another one, and now it’s prequel time.

The King’s Man takes things back to the World War I era, detailing the origins of this particular secret service, as headed up by Ralph Fiennes.

Starring: Ralph Fiennes (duh), Harris Dickinson, Daniel Brühl, Djimon Hounsou, Rhys Ifans, Aaron Taylor-Johnson, Tom Hollander, Gemma Arterton, Matthew Goode, Charles Dance, Stanley Tucci, Liam Neeson.

That’s… a lot.

Directed by: Matthew Vaughn returns to the chair.

Irish release date: 14 February 2020
