Director Matthew Vaughn surprised the world back in 2014 with his incredibly fun, extremely R-rated spy thriller Kingsman: The Secret Service... and then he surprised everyone again when he signed on to make the sequel as his first follow-up. Now the new film, Kingsman: The Golden Circle, is just a few months away from release, and we have this epic debut trailer to celebrate. Check it out!
Co-written by Matthew Vaughn and Jane Goldman, Kingsman: The Golden Circle picks up with Eggsy (Taron Egerton), Merlin (Mark Strong) and Roxy (Sophie Cookson) in serious danger, as members of Kingsman are being hunted and assassinated. When they are left with no other options, they discover a clue pointing them towards Kentucky, where they are introduced to members of the American wing of the service, known as The Statesman -- including characters played by Channing Tatum, Jeff Bridges, and Halle Berry.
This trailer was posted by the official 20th Century Fox YouTube account, and it's a surprisingly stylishly cut bit of footage. While the material shown at CinemaCon late last month was full of plot, character details and dialogue, this edit is much more about crazy action. It's noteworthy that one big thing that is the same between both bits of footage is the reveal that Colin Firth's Harry Hart is still alive:
Admittedly the reveal of Colin Firth being in Kingsman: The Golden Circle isn't the most surprisingly thing ever, as it's been teased for months - but we're still excited that it's happening. Firth was shockingly great in his first action role playing in the first Kingsman, and while it most certainly looked like he was killed by Samuel L. Jackson's character, the sequel will explain how he managed to survive.
We're obviously very excited for Kingsman 2 to be released, but the sad news is that this is actually a very early trailer. Rather than debuting this summer, the anticipated spy thriller will instead be coming out in the fall, with Fox scheduling it for theaters on September 22nd. We'll be very much looking forward to seeing more from the movie, so be sure to be on the lookout for more in the coming months.
