The King's Man release date pushed to August
The film, which was slated to hit the theatres on March 12, will now be out on August 20
The King's Man has been officially pushed to August 20, this year. The period action spy film, directed by Matthew Vaughn and starring Ralph Fiennes, was originally slated for release in 2019.
Disney and Fox were set to release The King's Man in 2019 but eventually moved it to 2020 due to issues with incorporating Fox's and Disney's calendar releases. However, the COVID-19 pandemic once again pushed the film, and now Variety has reported that the film, which was slated to hit the theatres on March 12, will be out on August 20.
The Kingsman franchise was launched in 2014 with the release of Kingsman: The Secret Service, starring Taron Egerton as Eggy. The success of the film led to the sequel Kingsman: The Golden Circle. The upcoming The King's Man is a prequel.
With the first two films grossing over $400 million worldwide, the expectation for the upcoming movie has been sky-high.
