    Action, fantasy, adventure, English aplomb and good feelings, all mixed together for a stainless franchise like THE KING’S MAN which, this time, leaps back in time and returns to THE ORIGINS. A war story based on the comic book ‘The Secret Service’ by Mark Millar and Dave Gibbons with subject and direction by Matthew Vaughn who also wrote the screenplay with Karl Gajudusek. The film, distributed by Disney, has been in theaters since January 5th. In history, we go back to the First World War, to those early years of the twentieth century when the spy agency was born with its noble code of honor, that of Kingsman, engaged in the silent defense of all humanity. “I wanted to make a film like the ones I grew up with as a boy – says the fifty-year-old director -, films like LAWRENCE OF ARABIA, DOCTOR ZIVAGO, those epic works, those adventure films of yesteryear. Now make a film like that. , on this kind of scale, it’s not exactly easy for the big investments that go into it, so I figured if I mixed it into the King’s Man universe, Hollywood would be less afraid of this project. ” And it must be said that the film, between James Bond and Indiana Jones, has pace and never bores, with the story of the birth of this independent intelligence agency, known by the name of Kingsman and which collects elite warriors, which is forced to face a collection of the worst tyrants and criminal minds in history, including the demonic Rasputin (Rhys Ifans). Criminals all gathered for a common purpose: to put together a war that wipes out millions of human lives. Super cast with Gemma Arterton, Matthew Goode, Tom Hollander, Daniel Bruhl, Djimon Hounsou and Charles Dance. Central to the film are the figures of the Duke of Oxford (Ralph Fiennes) struggling with the education of his son Conrad (Harris Dickinson). “Our ancestors were terrible people – his father tells Conrad at one point -. That nobility never came from chivalry, they came from being tough and ruthless. I liked the first films – said Fiennes. -. I really loved the clever balance of story and action that Matthew established. It’s an original way of dealing with espionage issues, so I was delighted when the director brought up the prequel. The tone of the previous Kingsman films is very attractive, but that seemed to take it all into another area, into a different arena. We all felt involved in this multilevel film. Inside is pathos, tragedy, thrilling, funny and flashy action sequences, and has a historical life of his own. “Finally, says Tom Hollander who plays three real roles in the film, George V, William II and Nicholas II:” Well, they are all distinct characters, so I couldn’t shoot them all on the same day and every time they were some hours of make-up The accent e It was a difficult thing for me being three different men and of different nationalities. Matthew’s idea of ​​making them three first cousins ​​who quarrel with each other and plunge the world with this quarrel. “A curiosity: the shooting of some scenes of The King’s Man – Le Origini took place in Turin locations. and Piedmontese such as the Castello di Racconigi, the Reggia di Venaria and Palazzo Reale in Turin, while the outdoor scenes touched Lungo Po Diaz in Turin and the municipality of Venaria, in via Andrea Mensa
