Disney moves Matthew Vaughn’s The King’s Man back to an autumn release, and we’ll get it two days earlier than the US in September 2020.
The next film in the Kingsman movie series isn’t a direct continuation of the two features we’ve had to date. Rather, that writer and director Matthew Vaughn has put together a prequel story. He still has plans to do a full Kingsman 3, with the bulk of the original cast, further down the line.
For now, though, we have The King’s Man, a film starring Ralph Fiennes, Gemma Arterton, Rhys Ifans, Matthew Goode, Tom Hollander, Harris Dickinson, Daniel Bruhl, Djimon Hounsou and Charles Dance.
And we also learn that Disney – which now owns Fox, of course – has decided to move the release date of the film. In the US, the date has moved from February 14th 2020 to September 18th 2020. No reason has been given for the change, and given that it arrived in the midst of a bunch of release date changes, we suspect it’s little more than Disney shuffling its pack.
We now learn too that the UK date is going to be two days earlier: it’s due on Wednesday September 16th 2020 over here.
Here’s the most recent trailer, from September.
The first trailer, meanwhile, popped up in mid-July, and it looks like this…
One last thing: here’s its 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. Discover the origins of the very first independent intelligence agency in THE KING’S MAN.
More as we hear it.
