The new trailer for Kingsman: The Golden Circle has just dropped and it features loads of bonkers explosive action, as well as some new and very American spies.
Matthew Vaughn has become well-known for making very left-field comic book movies. He gave us Kickass, which is still arguably one of the best comic book movies ever made, then did the rather more formulaic yet still brilliant X-Men: First Class, but more recently wowed and shocked us in equal measure yet again with 2014’s Kingsman: The Secret Service.
Matthew Vaughn’s upcoming film is a continuation in the Kingsman series, Kingsman: The Golden Circle, and it sees him yet again working from Mark Millar’s original IP. Vaughn and Millar have developed quite a tight working relationship in recent years. Vaughn seems to really enjoy adapting the Scottish comic book writer’s work for the big screen, and he’s dam good at it! They first worked together on Kickass and this will be the third time they’ve collaborated, and judging by the trailer it certainly seems like it’ll be their most explosive collaboration yet. Check out the trailer below.
Kingsman: The Golden Circle sees Taron Egerton and Mark Strong returning as Gary “Eggsy” Unwin and Merlin respectively, and surprisingly Colin Firth will also be reprising his role as Harry Hart (now sporting an eyepatch), which is interesting since he supposedly died in the first film (spoilers for the first Kingsman movie by the way…). The sequel sees the addition of Hollywood superstars such as Channing Tatum, Jeff Bridges, Julianne Moore and Halle Berry, as well as Narcos and Game of Thrones actor Pedro Pascal, who’s character, according to Eggsy, enjoys playing with a skipping rope, although Pascal’s Jack Daniels insists on calling it a lasso.
The film will see the Kingsman having to join forces with their American counterparts, known as the Statesmen, in order to stop the secret criminal group referred to as The Golden Circle.
Kingsman: The Golden Circle will be in UK cinemas on September 22nd, so not too long to wait!
