The King’s Man is based on true events. Well, the assassination of Archduke Franz Ferdinand in Sarajevo did happen with World War I and the Russian soothsayer Rasputin did exist. Everything else is indeed fictional.
In anticipation of The King’s Man, 20th Century Studios released a 60-second video spot as a special look into the film called, “History.” It is also tied into the advanced ticket sales at Fandango in time for its release before Christmas.
Here is the official synopsis:
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.
The film stars Ralph Fiennes, Gemma Arterton, Rhys Ifans, Matthew Goode, Tom Hollander, Harris Dickinson, Daniel Brühl, Djimon Hounsou, and Charles Dance. Matthew Vaughn directed the movie from the screenplay written by Vaughn and Karl Gajdusek. The film is based on the comic book The Secret Service by Mark Millar and Dave Gibbons.
