The King’s Man isn’t just a prequel to the Kingsmen series — it goes back so far, it could be a prequel to a prequel to a prequel. In fact, the events of The King’s Man take place during World War I, a full century ago. Having the film set during that time period made it an extremely interesting experience for Gemma Arterton, especially since, as she says, it was a very dark time for the world, yet the film still finds a way to lighten things up in typical Kingsmen fashion.
