Manners maketh man, and 20th Century FIlms "maketh" sure that it keeps The Kingsman prequel in the public eye with a new trailer.
Director-producer Matthew Vaughn returns for another installation into The Kingsman series, this time digging into how the service came to be, and where its origins sprung from. Vaught co-wrote the screenplay with Karl Gajdusek, and the movie cites its inspiration from the comic series by Mark Millar and Dave Gibbons. This prequel provides context to The Kingsman and has the opportunity to open the door for a Kingman 3 and beyond.
“We will in some ways. We’ll discover why manners maketh man," Vaughn shared with ComicBook almost two years ago. "We’ll discover why one of my favorite lines in the new film is 'reputation is what people think you are, character is who you are.' It’s got a lot of what I’ll call home truths for our modern society that would be good to remember." He added, "It’s an allegory of...World War I happened due to some crazy politicians and political movements that got out of control. Everybody thought there couldn’t be a war, and then it happened. We’re living in a crazy time right now.”
Millar and Gibbons will serve as executive producers alongside Ralph Fiennes, Stephen Marks, and Claudia Vaughn. Fiennes has been billed as one of the film's stars, joined by Daniel Bruhl, Tom Hollander, Matthew Goode, Charles Dance, Harris Dickinson, Djimon Hounsou, Gemma Arterton, and Rhys Ifans. The King's Man arrives this holiday season on December 22, 2021.
