'The King's Man' Teaser Trailer: Ralph Fiennes Explains Origin of Kingsman Agency

Gemma Arterton, Rhys Ifans, Matthew Goode, Tom Hollander, Harris Dickinson, Daniel Brühl, Djimon Hounsou and Charles Dance also star in the 'Kingsman' prequel.

Twentieth Century Fox released the first teaser trailer for The King's Man on Monday.

The action film, which is a prequel to the Kingsman film series, follows the world's worst tyrants and criminals as they join forces to plot a war. While the criminals plan to wipe out millions, one man makes it his mission to race against time to stop them. Throughout the film, audience members will learn about the origins of the first independent intelligence agency.

The film is based on the comic book The Secret Service by Mark Millar and Dave Gibbons.

Ralph Fiennes, Gemma Arterton, Rhys Ifans, Matthew Goode, Tom Hollander, Harris Dickinson, Daniel Brühl, Djimon Hounsou and Charles Dance star in the film, while Matthew Vaughn directed.

The trailer opens with one man carrying another on his back. The two dodge explosions from the water before a voiceover begins: "Throughout time our people robbed, lied and killed until one day we found ourselves nobleman," says T.E. Lawrence (Fiennes).

Clips of men going to war follow, as T.E. continues to explain the origins of the kingsman. "But that nobility never came from chivalry. It came from being tough and ruthless," he says. The war scene concludes with men being individually shot down.

Conrad (Dickinson) later trains to learn how to fight, as his mentor T.E. continues to explain that true power lies in knowing who you are fighting and how they can be successfully defeated.

The trailer concludes with T.E. taking Conrad to the Kingsman store. "I know you want to fight, but there are other ways of doing your duty," T.E. explains before he helps Conrad find the perfect uniform.

The King's Man will be in theaters on Feb. 14, 2020. Watch the full teaser trailer above.
