Just because “The King’s Man” is set during World War I at the beginning of the 20th century doesn’t mean we can’t have some fun.
While the first trailer for “The King’s Man” made a point to show off style and class as a way of establishing how this prequel film differs from the two “Kingsman” films with Taron Egerton and Colin Firth, the latest look shows that the franchise still has a sense of humor.
In it, we see Ralph Fiennes explaining the height of technology for 1914, a device that allows you to safely jump out of a plane called a “parachute.” He’s training the next class of super spy, a young man played by Harris Dickinson, to lead the fight during the first World War.
“Armed, yes. But ready, we shall see,” Fiennes says in the clip.
Matthew Vaughn is returning to direct “The King’s Man,” which is based on Mark Millar and Dave Gibbons’s comic series “The Secret Service and follows the Kingsmen’s fight to end World War I while a team of tyrants and criminal masterminds try to take the lives of millions in the process.
Joining Fiennes and Dickinson in the film are Gemma Arterton, Rhys Ifans, Matthew Goode, Tom Hollander, Daniel Brühl, Djimon Hounsou and Charles Dance.
Twentieth Century Fox and Disney are releasing “The King’s Man” in theaters on Feb. 14, 2020. Watch the new trailer above.
