Rasputin brings the mayhem in the first full trailer for 'Kingsman' origin story 'The King's Man'

After a tease in the summer, we now have the first full – and explosive – trailer for origin story The King's Man.

Almost a hundred years before Colin Firth's Harry Hart recruited Eggsy to be trained in the ways of the gentleman spy, Ralph Fiennes' the Duke of Oxford brings in young war hero Conrad into the fold.

And things are soon getting pretty out of hand (with some help from Black Sabbath).

Matthew Vaughn is back behind the camera for this third movie, 'as a collection of history's worst tyrants and criminal masterminds gather to plot a war to wipe out millions, one man and his protégé must race against time to stop them' (per the official synopsis).

Among those tyrants is Rhys Ifans' Rasputin, also known as 'the Mad Monk', the mystic and holy man who had the ear of Tsar Nicholas II of Russia.

Also on the star-studded bill are Gemma Arterton, Djimon Hounsou, Tom Hollander, Charles Dance, Aaron Taylor-Johnson, Matthew Goode, Daniel Brühl, Stanley Tucci, Alison Steadman and Trust star Harris Dickinson as Conrad.

Vaughn revealed last year that he planned to make The King's Man (then called Kingsman: The Great Game) and then a third 'regular' Kingsman movie back to back.

Whether the filming has dovetailed as planned hasn't been revealed, but a third movie with Firth and Taron Egerton's Eggsy is most certainly in the pipeline, said to be the pair's 'final chapter'.

“We've got to finish off the Eggsy and Harry relationship,” Vaughn told Digital Spy in May. “The final chapter of their relationship needs to be told, which we've got ready to do, and I'm hoping to shoot that later this year or the beginning of next year.”

Penned by Vaughn's frequent writing partner Jane Goldman (currently making the Game of Thrones prequel series pilot), The King's Man hits the UK on February 14, 2020.
