Kingsman Prequel Trailer: The King's Man Delivers Origins And Action

In 2020, they will become kings.


The third movie in the Kingsman franchise, The King's Man, has gotten its first trailer. Despite being the third movie, it's actually a prequel set decades before the first two movies in the Kingsman series, and as such, it doesn't feature star Taron Egerton. It explores the origins of the franchise's secretive spy organization, and it releases in February 2020.

The trailer establishes the movie's setting--Britain in the early 20th century--and starts with a scene on a First World War battlefield. Ralph Fiennes provides the voiceover, explaining that true power comes from "understanding who it is you are truly fighting." We then see young star Harris Dickinson, who has been recruited to the organization and looks set to embark on a series of dangerous adventures. The movie might be set many decades before its predecessors, but it's clearly part of the same world and looks every bit as spectacular. Check the trailer out above.

Now Playing: The King's Man - Official Teaser Trailer

The King's Man has an impressive cast that also includes Liam Neeson, Daniel Bruhl, Gemma Arterton, Rhys Ifans, Aaron Taylor-Johnson, Matthew Goode, and Stanley Tucci. Like the previous films it's directed by Matthew Vaughn and releases on February 14, 2020.

Although The King's Man will introduce a new group of characters, there is also a fourth film in the works that will return to the modern storyline of the series. There is no set release date for that one, but Vaughn recently told Digital Spy that he hoped to start shooting it "later this year or the beginning of next year."

The Kingsman: The Secret Service was released in 2015 and made more than $414 million at the worldwide box office, while 2017's Kingsman: The Golden Circle made $410 million.
