I fucking love Kingsman: The Secret Service. In fact, I love pretty much anything filmmaker Mathew Vaughn has directed. Layer Cake, Stardust, X-Men: First Class, Kick-Ass, Kingsman: The Secret Service, that’s a pretty fucking great resume. Sure, Kingsman: The Golden Circle wasn’t nearly as good as it’s precession, but despite some major flaws, I still like the movie.
For some reason, I had no idea that a third Kingsman movie was even in the cards. I’m happy to see the series back on the big screen anyway. The Kingsman films have always tried re-inject some fun and adventure into the spy genre. I’ve never been a Bond fan or Jason Bourne (the Mission: Impossible movies, on the other hand, are fucking incredible). I was already happy to see that this series is going to continue, but like many great sequels, this movie is taking the Kingsman story in a completely different direction. Starring Ralph Fiennes, it looks like the movie is about the original formation of the Kingsman organization around WWI… and it looks fucking cool as Hell. Anyway, check out the trailer below, you’ll probably agree that it looks fucking awesome:
The King’s Man directed by Mathew Vaugh hits theatres in February 2020.
In this Episode, guest co-host Mike Cole and I discuss the X-Men joining the MCU. We talk about the direction we’d like to see the franchise take. Should they somehow incorporate the existing X-Men movies into the MCU or just start fresh? What kind of stories and characters do we want to see? Finally, what casting ideas might we have about the X-Men? Oh, and where does Deadpool fit into all this? This and so much more on The World’s Best Podcast!
