“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.
