Yes, this WWI-set spy thriller prequel to Kingsman: The Secret Service was released in cinemas just a few short weeks ago, but if you missed it on the big screen - and chances are, considering the 8pm curfew, you probably did miss it - then you can check it out at home. Ralph Fiennes, Gemma Arterton, Rhys Ifans and more feature.

The King's Man is on Disney+ right now.
