20th Century Fox has released a new trailer for upcoming spy thriller The King’s Man, a prequel to the Kingsman films. The trailer reveals more of the story’s World War I setting, as well as a few glimpses of movie’s evil villain Rasputin, played by Rhys Ifans.
In the clip, Ralph Fiennes plays the posh, highly skilled Duke of Oxford, a member of a secret organization that takes action “while governments wait for orders.” He recruits a new member of the team, played by Harris Dickinson, and teaches him the art of fighting (as well as how to use a new-fangled invention called a parachute). The action-packed trailer promises a lot of fights, explosions and some very well tailored suits.
