“The King’s Man” Red Band Trailer is Bloody Good Fun
You’ll know this is a red band trailer within the first 20-seconds. 20th Century Studios has released a raunchy, rude, and rollicking red band trailer for Matthew Vaughn’s The King’s Man, his long-awaited third installment in his The Kingsman franchise. After some pandemic-related delays, The King’s Man is finally nearing (ish) its premiere date, and the red band trailer will intrigue those of you who were already fans of the irreverent spy franchise and, perhaps, those of you who are new to the game.
The King’s Man will take us back to the beginning, long before Colin Firth’s Harry Hart and Taron Egerton’s Eggsy were mucking it up in her Majesty’s most Secret Service (no, not James Bond’s MI6, the other one). In The King’s Man, Vaughn reveals how the posh, proper, and morally flexible secret service began, set against the backdrop of World War I. “While government’s wait for orders, our people take action,” says Ralph Fiennes Duke of Oxford. He’s not lying!
As was the case in his first two Kingsman movies, Vaughn has held nothing back, it appears. The action is relentless, with the flair for both comedy and gore that he brought to bear on the first two films. While the Bond franchise is plenty action-packed, it nods (a bit, anyway) towards pesky things like gravity. In the previous two films and here, again, in The King’s Man, Vaughn has gleeful fun at cranking up the action, often highly implausible, to 11.
Joining Fiennes are a slew of fine performers, including Matthew Goode, Gemma Arterton, Stanley Tuccio, Aaron Taylor-Johnson, Djimon Hounsou, and Daniel Brühl.
Check out the trailer below. The King’s Man hits theaters on December 22.
