Firth and Egerton step aside to go back to the roots of the Kingsman Secret Service
Matthew Vaughn’s film was originally scheduled for a February release, before delaying until September 18 – 20th Century Studios have now pushed things forward by a couple of days to September 16, no doubt hoping to bag a bigger opening weekend given everything that has happened since. The first Kingsman film was an unexpected surprise – a fast-paced, lively and inventive comedy action film that made a star out of Taron Egerton, while also making Colin Firth seem like a legitimate bad ass. The sequel was too long and a bitter disappointment, and now the third film in the franchise, The King’s Man, goes back to the origins of the Kingsman secret service. Neither Firth nor Egerton appear in this one (or Mark Strong) and going by the trailer it seems to have a totally different style and tone, despite Vaughn being behind the camera again.
