If your Valentine’s Day plans for 2020 involved a romantic dinner, followed by a visit to your local multiplex to take in Matthew Vaughn’s The King’s Man – a World War I-set prequel to the Kingsman movies – then we have bad news. You may have to plump for Blumhouse’s Fantasy Island or the re-designed Sonic The Hedgehog instead, because The King’s Man release date has been pushed back by several months.

The prequel will now arrive in cinemas on 18 September 2020, as revealed in a new Disney release slate. No official reason has been given for the shift, but we’ll now be waiting 10 months to catch it on the big screen. With Taron Egerton’s Eggsy and Colin Firth’s Harry Hart out of the picture for this one, The King’s Man finds its central duo in Ralph Fiennes’ Duke Of Oxford and Harris Dickinson’s Conrad – a father and son duo, promising a different dynamic to the mentorship in the previous Kingsman movies. Also starring are the likes of Matthew Goode, Gemma Arterton, Stanley Tucci, Djimon Hounsou, Charles Dance, Rhys Ifans, and Aaron Taylor-Johnson – teaming back up with his Kick-Ass director.

Back in the main timeline of the series, it’s expected that the Harry-Eggsy trilogy will be completed with a third outing – though official details for that one remain unconfirmed.
