To celebrate the anticipated release of The King’s Man, the third in the franchise and prequel to the first two films, we sat down with the cast to find out all about it.
As 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.”
First, we caught up with Harris Dickinson who plays Conrad Oxford in the film, about the lure of the series and Matthew Vaughn, the surprising trajectory of his character and working with Ralph Fiennes, whose influence is far reaching. Next, Rhys Ifans tells us about playing Rasputin, playing bad guys, “foreplay” with Fiennes and those pesky Spider-Man rumours.
Seasoned actor Tom Hollander also appears in the film world’s first “³” credit (he plays three different characters in the film), the fulfilment for an actor doing multiple roles and how he is enjoying his career mixing films with voice work on Family Guy and more.
Finally, we spoke to co-writer and director Vaughn about the special place this third film has in his heart, always trying to find new and exciting ways to transcend genre and do original action sequences, and about the progress of his next film, Argyll, which hits screens next year.
All this and more in our exclusive interviews, which you can view below:
