Since September last year, the third addition to the Kingsman franchise has been rumoured. Featuring lead Rocketman actor Taron Egerton, the lauded film series will rewind the clock for a prequel chapter set to highlight the origins story of the current conglomerate of spies.

Based on the comic book “The Secret Service” by Mark Millar and Dave Gibbons, the upcoming film will be set in the 1900’s and depict the events that led to the establishment of the secret network. Starring Ralph Fiennes, Gemma Arterton, Rhys Ifans, Matthew Goode, Tom Hollander, Harris Dickinson, Daniel Brühl, with Djimon Hounsou, and Charles Dance, the trailer is packed with era-style action and choreographed fight scenes.

Directed by Matthew Vaughn and co-produced with David Reid and Adam Bohling, the official synopsis reads:

“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.”

From 20th Century Fox, The King’s Man is slated to drop into cinemas on February 13, 2020. In the meantime, tune into the trailer below.
