Kingsman The Golden Circle Red Band Trailer

Everyone’s bleeding in red, white, and blue in Kingsman: The Golden Circle.

The over-the-top, gratuitous violence that we knew and loved in 2014’s Kingsman: The Secret Service is back and raring to go in the new red band trailer for its sequel, which sees Taron Egerton return as Eggsy, who clashes with crass American Statesman, lead by Channing Tatum and Pedro Pascal. And a beloved character from the first film makes a surprising return.

Kingsman The Golden Circle TV Spot

Just a couple weeks ago, the first trailer for Kingsman: The Golden Circle arrived, giving us a peek into the sequel that finds Eggsy (Taron Egerton) dealing with yet another threat to the world. This time, the Kingsman agents find their headquarters completely destroyed, forcing them to team up with another secret agency in the United States known as the Statesman. Their headquarters just so happen to be located in Kentucky, where Eggys has a hard time getting a good martini in new footage that debuted in conjunction with the Kentucky Derby over the weekend.

kingsman the golden circle first look

Kingsman: The Secret Service wasn’t just a surprise box office smash – it was one of the most pleasantly surprising wide releases of 2015. Matthew Vaughn‘s gory spy riff, which pushed the language of James Bond movies into giddy, R-rated heights, was a ton of audacious, gnarly fun. However, this also means that the sequel won’t benefit from the element of surprise. Expectations have been raised!

But it seems to have come prepared, with new cast members in Channing Tatum, Halle Berry, and Jeff Bridges, each of whom has been revealed in the Kingsman: The Golden Circle first look.

Russell Crowe in Robin Hood

We’ve seen quite a few Robin Hood films. The last one, which Sir Ridley Scott directed, was grim and serious and didn’t have the greatest sense of adventure. There wasn’t much bravura or spirit to that 2010 film, but the producer behind Robin Hood: Origins, which stars Taron Egerton, describes the next depiction of the character as a much more livelier affair — partly because it was inspired by John Wick.

Below, get some Robin Hood: Origins story details.

2014, KINGSMAN: THE SECRET SERVICE

Kingsman: The Secret Service was one of 2015’s most pleasant surprises, an ultra-violent James Bond riff with an anarchic streak a mile wide and a penchant for shocking reversals. Not even that truly awful second-to-last scene could derail one of the most spirited action movies of the past few years. It’s good! My only real concern about the upcoming sequel is that it won’t find a way to top the sheer, bloody insanity of the first movie.

Kingsman: The Golden Circle is due out later this year and outside of an impressive cast and the return of director Matthew Vaughn, details have been kept under wraps. However, we do know that the next movie will find a way to utilize a scene that was cut from the first film.

Sing Review

Note: With Sing out this weekend, we’re re-running our review from the TIFF.

Since Despicable Me, Illumination Entertainment has established itself as a go-to source for sturdy family entertainment. Their films may not reach the artistic heights of Pixar or Disney, but you can generally count on them to be perfectly pleasant and inoffensive, able to entertain the kids without annoying the parents.

Sing is Illumination’s first musical, but otherwise it’s cut from the same cloth as the company’s other films. While not especially deep, the combination of a star-studded cast and an equally star-studded music catalogue make for a fun time. It’s light and sweet and pretty as cotton candy, and it dissolves from memory just as quickly.  Read More »

Robin Hood release date

There are currently more Robin Hood movies in development than any one person could reasonably be expected to keep track of. So far, though, few of those projects have actually borne fruit. One that’s further along than most is Robin Hood: Origins, which has yet to start shooting but has a director and a script and a cast, which is more than you can say for most of the others. And now it even has a release date.

This Robin Hood movie is the one described as a gritty, revisionist take in the vein of The Dark Knight, with Taron Egerton as the prince of thieves and Jamie Foxx as a “battle-hardened” Little John. Or maybe you’ll remember it as the project that almost conflicted with Egerton’s Kingsman sequel plans. Anyway, get the Robin Hood: Origins release date details and all the latest updates below.  Read More »

‘Sing’ Trailer: Any Animal Can Be a Rock Star

Sing Trailer

This weekend brings the animated musical Trolls to theaters, which means there’s no better time for Universal and Illumination Entertainment to push their own music-infused animated comedy, Sing.

An all-new Sing trailer has arrived, and as someone who has been skeptical about how this movie would turn out, I have to say that this most recent tease of the movie actually shows off some more enticing character and story details, showing that this is much more than a showcase of some famous pop tunes. It’s a little weird that Eminem’s “Sing for the Moment,” which samples Aerosmith’s “Dream On,” is used to market a kids movies, but whatever works, I guess.

kingsman resurrection

Kingsman: The Secret Service was one of the most pleasant surprises of 2014, a wild reinvention of old school spy movie imagery that never spared the gore while ruthlessly satirizing just about anything remotely connected to modern politics and espionage. It’s a messy movie, but it’s the best kind of messy – it has so much on its plate and so many targets in its sights that it moves breathlessly from one bizarre idea to another.

And it had a high body count, with large swaths of the original cast not living to see the credits roll. And now, a long-simmering rumor associated with the sequel, Kingsman: The Golden Circle, has been seemingly confirmed: a certain dead character will somehow make it back for the sequel. This feels like the kind of reveal that will inevitably surface in a trailer, but proceed with caution and consider this a spoiler warning.

The cast of Kingsman: The Golden Circle is already something special with Elton John making a rare turn as an actor. But the roster for the sequel just got a little sweeter with the addition of The Big Lebowski and True Grit star Jeff Bridges, and he even got his own teaser poster that is the perfect way to announce the addition of The Dude to the cast. In fact, the poster just might tease the role of Jeff Bridges in Kingsman 2. Read More »
