From IMDb: “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.”

Poster Rating: C+ / B- / B+ / B+

Review: (#1) Just enough details to entice fans of the Kingsman films, but with few details worth noting.

(#2) There are a lot of details here and some of them are interesting, but the only thing keeping it from being a disappointment is that the background doesn’t feel excessively bare.

(#3) An Asian-inspired design that reminds us that the similar Disney designs showcase that this Fox property is now under the control of Disney. (#4) The distressed design doesn’t add much to an otherwise serviceable and well structured poster.

Trailer Rating: B- / C+ / B-

Review: (#1) Not as outlandish as the trailer for the prior Kingsman film, this origin story has just enough teases for fans of the Kingsman films to get them excited for the new film.

(#2) More action heavy than the prior trailer and less of interest to Kingsman fans. This attempt has a few of the flourishes fans of the series have come to expect and the same kind of music selection, but it feels rather generic at the same time.

(#3) Back to what made the first trailer enticing is that we’re given a lot more of the action we come to expect from this series and the characters don’t seem as brashly simplistic as they did previously.
