‘The King’s Man’ delays release AGAIN for Ralph Fiennes’ 1900s spy movie

The third Kingsman film has had its release date pushed back once more.

The latest entry in Rocketman producer Matthew Vaughn’s spy adventure franchise started filming more than two years ago.

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

Rather than being a direct continuation, the upcoming prequel movie will be set in the early 1900s, exploring the fictional espionage organisation’s origins.

Watch the trailer:


The King’s Man was originally meant to be released in November 2019, but the release date was changed to last February.

Inevitably, the coronavirus pandemic meant it was rescheduled again for September 2020.

Disney and 20th Century Studios then announced that the movie had been postponed until February 2021, and then delayed again until 12th March, then again to this August.

Another (hopefully final) release date has now been confirmed!

The King’s Man is currently scheduled for release on Wednesday 22nd December.

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.”

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 first Kingsman movie is available on DVD on Amazon.
