AceShowbiz - Here's the first footage of Disney's "The King's Man". Coming from Matthew Vaughan who has directed two other films in the franchise, the "Kingsman" prequel takes fans back to early 1900s when the land of Europe is ravaged by wars.
Hinting at a more serious tone than the previous movies, the video features various scenes set at battlefield as Ralph Fiennes' Duke of Oxford is shown joining the World War II. "Throughout time, our people robbed, lied and killed," he says in voiceover. "Until one day we found ourselves noblemen. But that nobility never came from chivalry - it came from being tough and ruthless."
After witnessing countless of dead soldiers, the Duke takes a different approach to fight ruthless tyrants and criminal masterminds. "Real power is not found running off to war. Real power lies in understanding who it is you're truly fighting and how they can be defeated," he says, as the video teases the origins of the very first independent intelligence agency.
The Duke is seen grooming his protege, played by Harris Dickson, taking him to the Kingsman tailor shop and showing him the secret room. "I know you want to fight but there are other ways of doing your duty," he tells the young man, who is seen having a fight practice with Djimon Hounsou's Neil Kenlock.
According to the official synopsis, "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."
Karl Gajdusek writes the script, while Vaughn also produces the movie. Supported by Matthew Goode, Harris Dickinson, Daniel Bruhl, Charles Dance, Aaron Taylor-Johnson (Aaron Johnson), Stanley Tucci and more in the cast, the action movie is set for a February 14, 2020 release in the United States.
