First Teaser Trailer for Prequel 'The King's Man' from Matthew Vaughn
"Real power lies in understanding who it is you're truly fighting." 20th Century Fox has unveiled the first teaser trailer for The King's Man, a prequel movie from Matthew Vaughn's Kingsman series. Once again directed by Matthew Vaughn, in this one we go back to the days of World War I, aka The Great War, to tell the origin story of "the very first independent intelligence agency." Taron Egerton as Eggsy isn't in this one, it's a whole new cast. And it's a very impressive bunch of actors. Ralph Fiennes headlines, with Gemma Arterton, Rhys Ifans, Matthew Goode, Tom Hollander, Harris Dickinson, Daniel Brühl, plus Djimon Hounsou, and Charles Dance. This actually looks pretty damn cool. Although, there's one shot that is a direct copy from Wonder Woman. But the sword POV shot makes up for it. Hoping for some good storytelling with all this action. But I'm interested, they got my attention. In 2020, they will become kings.
Here's the teaser trailer (+ poster) for Matthew Vaughn's The King's Man, direct from Fox's YouTube:
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. Discover the origins of the very first independent intelligence agency in The King's Man movie arriving early 2020. The King's Man is once again directed by English filmmaker Matthew Vaughn, of the first Kingsman: The Secret Service movie and its sequel The Golden Circle, as well as the films Layer Cake, Stardust, Kick-Ass, and X-Men: First Class previously. The screenplay is written by Jane Goldman, Matthew Vaughn, co-written by Karl Gajdusek; based on the comic book "The Secret Service" by Mark Millar and Dave Gibbons. 20th Century Fox will release Vaughn's The King's Man in theaters everywhere starting February 14th, 2020 next year. First impression? Who's in?

The first Kingsman was pretty fun, but the Golden Circle was pretty "meh". I really like Vaughn as a director and wish he'd move on from this franchise and do a proper "Superman" movie. Hopefully this rounds out the trilogy for him and he moves on to better things. That POV sword shot was really slick, but I'll be expecting a bit more than that.

I agree on everything.... so long as you replace "a proper Superman movie" with either "another Kick-Ass sequel" OR "a proper Wanted movie"

By "proper Wanted movie" do you mean a direct adaptation of the original graphic novel? BECAUSE THAT NEEDS TO HAPPEN.

Ok, it looks fine and all, but it is also another piece full of cliches ...

Looks good, loved the first one. The sequel was a little much, and I just don't like Channing Tatum.

I don't know if this series warrants a 'serious' prequel. Probably still watch though.

Yawn...to think I really use to love going to the movies. Now....well...not so much. This one does have a good cast...but...so what? The trailer was uninteresting...to say the least. I find myself watching a lot of older movies on my cable. They are so much better than what's being done today. I watched Harper last night with Paul Newman...from 1966...pretty good and it'd been 50 yrs. since I'd seen it and because I didn't remember much of it I found myself liking it...again...lol...and it's pretty light weight fare. The following year, '67, Newman came out with both Hombre and Cool Hand Luke. Both great, great films. Ah, living in the past, but what's a cinephile to do these days?

Don't care much for this series... Great set pieces for sure, but there's a crudeness that puts me off... That much talked-about church scene in the first one, for instance, I thought was well-filmed, for sure. But also reprehensible.

Good to see I'm not the only one who was put off by the disturbingly unethical church scene in the first one. I'd agree that other than that the flick was enjoyable, but also jarringly crude at moments (like the ending) and these two points prevented me from watching the sequel.
