Disney is pushing back the release date of 20th Century Studios’ Kingsmen prequel film The King’s Man. The movie was supposed to be released on September 18th, 2020 but it has now been moved to February 26th, 2021.
I guess this shouldn’t come as a surprise. While movie theaters have started to open up, I wouldn’t be surprised if more films got pushed back. There’s still a fear that people won’t show up. Also theaters still aren’t opening in the biggest markets such as Los Angeles and New York. I guess the real test will be when Tenet opens.
It was also announced that Marvel’s The Eternals has gotten a title change. The movie will now just be referred to as Eternals. It’s cleaner.
This story for The King’s Man follows “a collection of history’s worst tyrants and criminal masterminds gather to plot a war to wipe out millions, one man must race against time to stop them. Discover the origins of the very first independent intelligence agency in The King’s Man.”
Director Matthew Vaughn returns to direct the film which stars Ralph Fiennes (Harry Potter films), Matthew Goode (The Imitation Game), Gemma Arterton (Murder Mystery), Aaron Taylor-Johnson (Kick-Ass), Stanley Tucci (The Devil Wears Prada), Daniel Bruhl (Inglorious Basterds), Harris Dickinson (Maleficent: Mistress of Evil), Charles Dance (Game of Thrones), Tom Hollander (About Time), Rhys Ifans (Notting Hill), and Djimon Hounsou (Blood Diamond).
