In 2014 we were introduced to the first independent intelligence agency when The Kingsman, starring Taron Egerton as Eggsy, and Colin Firth as Harry Hart, also well known as Galahad, first premiered.

They made their return in The Kingsman: The Golden Circle in 2017 and since then, fans have longed for a third movie around the intelligence agency.

It was, however, confirmed that The Kingsman would get a third movie, which, unfortunately, does not bring back Eggsy and Harry but rather will be a prequel, and which will be called The King‘s Man. The cast of the upcoming movie is quite impressive too, though, and it will star Gemma Arterton (Saint Joan), Ralph Fiennes (Harry Potter), Daniel Brühl (The Alienist), Stanley Tucci (Hunger Games), Tom Hollander (The Night Manager), Rhys Ifans (Harry Potter) and Aaron Taylor-Johnson (Avengers: Age of Ultron).

While the world around is becoming worse and worse, we, at least, have something to look forward to. Not only was a new trailer for The King‘s Man released, in addition, it was also announced when the movie will hit theaters.

In The King’s Man, we will get to see Eggsy‘s and Harry‘s predecessors take on history‘s worst tyrants and criminal masterminds, who gather to plot a war to wipe out millions. In the trailer, Fiennes, who will play Duke of Oxford, can be seen trying to stop them and Polly, played by Arterton and Conrad, played by Harris Dickinson are helping him in his task. The trio can be seen taking on Rasputin, played by Ifans, as well as Daniel Brühl‘s character.

The movie will introduce its viewers to the origins of the first independent intelligence agency, which Fiennes’ character describes as “refined but brutal, civilized but merciless.“ A description most fans can probably agree with after the first two movies and after seeing what the spies are up to in the trailer.

The King’s Man will hit theaters on September 18 (and the pandemic better does not take that away from us either).
