The Kings Man Trailer Turns Back the Clock

first_img In 2011 director Matthew Vaughn successfully rebooted the X-Men film franchise with the awesome X-Men: First Class. But instead of sticking with that series, which just burned out with Dark Phoenix, he brought that same stylish 1960s spy movie energy to a new comic book adaptation, and another chance to rehabilitate Mark Millar after Kick-Ass, Kingsman. And he’s committed to this franchise, directing the first two entries and now preparing to make its first prequel.Watch this first trailer for The King’s Man.These Kingsman movies are about a secret order of British spies who wear dapper suits and name themselves after figures from Arthurian legends. If you think that’s indulgent their American counterparts, Statesman, sport cowboy hats and whips with booze-based code names. The first two movies involved Taron Egerton’s street urchin Eggsy being polished into a member of the organization by Colin Firth.The King’s Man however turns back the clock to presumably show us the birth of the order during World War 1. A conflict larger than the planet had ever seen might cause some weird colonizer King Arthur fanboys to band together. Ralph Fiennes plays new mentor T.E. Lawrence, aka Lawrence of Arabia.Other historical figures include Rhys Ifans as Grigori Rasputin, Tom Hollander as King George V/Wilhelm II/Nicholas II, and Djimon Hounsou as Neil Kenlock. It also sounds like Aaron Taylor-Johnson is playing a relative of Eggsy. The whole trailer gives off serious Assassin’s Creed vibes.The King’s Man releases in theaters next February, another Fox movie that’s become an inexplicable Disney release.
