The King’s Man tells the story of the origins of the secret service agency audiences got to know in the first two movies.

Set during the First World War, the film no longer features Colin Firth’s Harry Hart or Taron Egerton’s Eggsy Unwin.

Instead, we meet the founders of Kingsman, starring Ralph Fiennes as Orlando, Duke of Oxford, who is spurred to create the intelligence agency in order to prevent conflict before it happens.

The cast also includes Gemma Arterton, Rhys Ifans, Matthew Goode, Tom Hollander, Daniel Brühl, Djimon Hounsou, Aaron Taylor-Johnson, and Charles Dance.
