We’re about one month way from seeing Taron Egerton return to action as Eggsy, an operative from the Kingsman secret agent organizations based out of London. In the sequel, Kingsman: The Golden Circle, there’s a new threat on the horizon, and it appears they strike a crushing blow against the well-dressed, British spies, because every trailer shows their headquarters being completely destroyed. Now a new Kingsman The Golden Circle TV spot explains a little more about our villains by providing insight into the sequel’s title. Read More »
Even though summer may be over in a few weeks, September will be bringing us a blockbuster sequel that looks to be worthy of the season, but smart enough to avoid getting lost in the shuffle with the rest of the studio tentpoles.
Kingsman: The Golden Circle is the sequel to the original Kingsman: The Secret Service, an adaptation of Mark Millar’s comic book of the same name, published by his own Millarworld banner, which just got picked up by Netflix this week. This time, the British secret agents must seek the help of their American cousins, known as the Statesman, as their own headquarters has been blown off the map by a new threat. A new TV spot shows more of the action from the comic book sequel, including Taron Egerton and Colin Firth back in action together, this time fighting alongside each other as equals.

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 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 downside of Game of Thrones‘ pull-no-punches unpredictability is that it’s really easy to fall in love with a character, only to see them suddenly disappear from the show. But the upside of that is that it frees up Game of Thrones actors to pop up in other cool projects. Like Pedro Pascal, who once played fan favorite Oberyn Martell, and who is now set to co-star in Matthew Vaughn‘s Kingsman: The Golden Circle. Read More »

There’s a whole lot about Kingsman: The Golden Circle that sounds new. Eggsy (Taron Egerton) will be heading across the pond to America for this new adventure, meeting new friends (like Ginger, played by Halle Berry) and new foes (like Poppy, played by Julianne Moore) along the way. But there’ll be a few familiar elements as well, including Merlin (Mark Strong). And the first Kingsman 2 poster suggests another old friend has joined the fray.
(Spoilers ahead, though it doesn’t look like the marketing team is exactly going out of its way to keep this particular plot point under wraps.) Read More »
