    Saw the thumbnail for this on my YouTube subscriptions feed and never copped on that it was a Kingsman Prequel until I saw a post on Instagram with the Kingsman symbol. Looks good though

    Feels like the trailer was intentionally downplaying the actual "Kingsman" part of this Kingsman trailer. Couldn't be any worse than that awful first Kingsman sequel I suppose,

    I wouldn't mind seeing that

    This looks interesting, but I wouldn't say it looks like a must see at this point.

    I love Vaughn's visual direction and Ralph Fiennes, so at the very least...hopefully its better than golden circle?

    The idea of a Kingsman prequel doesn't excite me, but that trailer is actually quite good.

    Seems like quite the tonal shift! I'm not sure it's necessary, but trailer looks like it packs in plenty of action and a loose link to the Kingsman lore that we know of.

    The trailer seems to show that its based on the theory the Brits killed Rasputin in order to keep Russia in the War and someone decided to slap the Kingsman brand name on top of this theory.

    I loved the first two films will probably see this as im a sucker for an action film like this.

    I suppose they had to take a little step back considering the fate of Merlin and Eggsy after the second one.

    It's done well in America.....a place that Vaughn generally has a lot of love.

    I enjoyed K1... K2 was OK in spite of criminally offing Strong's character.

    I'm looking forward to the prequel.....I've no idea who the new young fella is though.

    Second trailer... Much better! This is looking like a 'must see' now. Out in February.

    Matthew Vaughn directing is a plus for me

    The lead actor Harris Dickinson is pretty much unknown but could change now

    It has a decent cast in Rhys Ifans, Ralph Fiennes, Gemma Arterton, Matthew Goode, Tom Hollander, Daniel Bruhl, Djimon Hounsou, and Charles Dance

    I'm looking forward to this, I loved the 1st one and enjoyed the 2nd.

    Yeah looks like it could be fun; as much of a tragic waste WW1 turned out to be... I can't deny the appeal of adventures set within that period. That sense of worlds changing overnight, (modern) technologies changing the figurative or literal landscape, social changes appearing on the streets, etc...



  • Registered Users Posts: 6,040 ✭✭✭ Mr Crispy


    I'm particularly looking forward to Ifans having fun playing Rasputin!

    looks like it could be a lot of fun

    Ouch; haven't checked the numbers but can't imagine this was ever going to do gangbusters - CoVid or no CoVid.

    Do people think Disney+ is worth it?

    I saw this out of boredom the other night and loved it. It's more Kingsman but then, I realized that I liked the previous two films anyway.

    Very decent value, I pay with my phone credit.

    I would put it above amazon prime and behind Netflix

    Nice. Kinda like the idea of ad-free Simpsons and Family Guy. Moon Knight looks like it might be good as well.
