We’re just under a month from the return of Kingsman, the British secret agent organization that saved the world from a diabolical scheme involving mind control. This time there’s a new threat who strikes a crushing blow against Kingsman, leaving them without a headquarters and in desperate need of allies. That’s where Statesman comes in
Kingsman: The Golden Circle has Kingsman taking refuge with their American cousins known as Statesman, who operate out of a whiskey distillery. Both organizations were founded at the same time, and working together may be the only way to stop a deadly new villain. However, even though Kingsman and Statesman must work together, it’s clear there are some differences that make for a somewhat confrontational working environment. You’ll see what I mean in a batch of new Kingsman The Golden Circle TV spots below. Read More »
Film formats will keep evolving until they swallow us whole and spit us out as a mass of pixels. Probably. Maybe. It certainly feels that way with the insane format that Kingsman: The Golden Circle is being converted to and projected in.
Kingsman: The Golden Circle will be projected ScreenX’s 270-degree panoramic experience. That’s three walls in an auditorium. It’s like if VR had eaten a Super Mario mushroom and blown up to the side of a whole theater.

When the Kingsman: The Golden Circle came to San Diego Comic-Con back in July, not only did it come with a bunch of footage from the comic book sequel directed by Matthew Vaughn, but it also came with an interesting cross-promotion for fans who are 21 and older (at least in the United States).
In the United Kingdom, the cover for the Kingsman agency is a tailor shop. But in the United States, their American cousin agency, the Statesman, operate a whiskey distillery. Vaughn found this the perfect opportunity to create his own brand of Statesman whiskey (which Halle Berry chugged a pint of at Comic-Con) in collaboration with the Old Forester whiskey distillery. But that won’t be the only Kingsman whiskey on the market.
The GlenDronach Distillery has announced their own Kingsman Edition whiskey as a cross-promotion with 20th Century Fox, Marv Films and Aberdeenshire distillery. You can find out more about both whiskeys below and see a new international poster for the sequel as well. Read More »
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 »
Kingsman: The Secret Service is a movie with energy to spare. Matthew Vaughn‘s spy movie moves fast with an infectious giddiness about itself. The director’s enthusiasm for this world of spies and super villains is unmistakable. Next month, that world is going to get bigger with the sequel, Kingsman: The Golden Circle, which looks every bit as playful as the first movie.
Below, watch the new Kingsman: The Golden Circle TV spot.

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.

Members of the /Film staff spent much of the past week in San Diego to cover Comic-Con 2017, the enormous convention that explores every single corner of the geek world (and surely you’ve heard of it and already knew that). We saw footage from Marvel’s upcoming movies, including Avengers: Infinity War. We were able to listen to Steven Spielberg talk about Ready Player One. We explored the world of Blade Runner 2049 in a special VR experience. We watched 7,000 people go totally nuts over the first trailer for Stranger Things season 2.
But that’s only the tip of the iceberg. We’ve compiled all of our Comic-Con coverage from the past week into one handy post, organized by category. So please: peruse and enjoy and get your fix.

When Kingsman: The Secret Service arrived in 2014, it was an underdog that became a surprise box office hit. Now, three years later, the sequel arrives with a different set of expectations. Can Kingsman: The Golden Circle live up to the nuttiness of the first movie? Does it have the flash and energy necessary to woo a Hall H crowd at Comic-Con?
From the moment the panel began, the answer was yes. Comic-Con crowds are infamously easy to please (everyone is there to have a good time!), but the footage from director Matthew Vaughn‘s upcoming sequel was violent and frantic and self-aware and darkly humorous. It looked very much like the first movie, albeit with a shinier, glossier coat.

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.
