Ralph Fiennes’ new 1900s-set ‘Kingsman’ movie has its release delayed

Fans anticipating the third Kingsman movie have a further wait ahead.

Rocketman producer Matthew Vaughn began filming the latest entry in his insane spy adventure franchise way back in January 2019.

The King’s Man follows 2014’s Kingsman: The Secret Service and 2017’s sequel Kingsman: The Golden Circle.

Excitingly, this new prequel movie sets the action in the early 1900s, exploring the fictional espionage organisation’s origins.

The King’s Man was originally set to come out in November 2019, then the release date was changed to this February, but due to the coronavirus pandemic it was rescheduled again for September.

Disney and 20th Century Studios have now announced that the film has been pushed back a further five months!

Audiences will now be able to see The King’s Man in cinemas on 12th February 2021.

Alongside Ralph Fiennes (Skyfall) as the Duke of Oxford, the cast also includes Gemma Arterton (Their Finest), Rhys Ifans (Notting Hill), Matthew Goode (Downton Abbey), Aaron Taylor-Johnson (Kickass), Stanley Tucci (The Devil Wears Prada), and Charles Dance (Game of Thrones), with Trust star Harris Dickinson playing a new young Kingsman agent called Conrad.

The official synopsis for The King’s Man reads: “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.”
