Who would have thought a Colin Firth action movie would be a runaway success? Kingsman: The Secret Service is being followed up with a sequel, Kingsman: The Golden Circle and now we have our first look.
It looks even better than the first if that’s possible. And yes, that’s Colin Firth’s character back from the dead. He’s been hanging out with the Statesman – the American version of the Kingsman. Here’s how 20th Century Fox describes the film:
“Kingsman: The Secret Service” introduced the world to Kingsman – an independent, international intelligence agency operating at the highest level of discretion, whose ultimate goal is to keep the world safe. In “Kingsman: The Golden Circle,” our heroes face a new challenge. When their headquarters are destroyed, and the world is held hostage, their journey leads them to the discovery of an allied spy organization in the US called Statesman, dating back to the day they were both founded. In a new adventure that tests their agents’ strength and wits to the limit, these two elite secret organizations band together to defeat a ruthless common enemy, in order to save the world, something that’s becoming a bit of a habit for Eggsy…
It has quite the cast with Colin Firth, Mark Strong and Taron Egerton returning to reprise their roles. The sequel adds Julianne Moore, Halle Berry, with Sir Elton John, Channing Tatum, and Jeff Bridges, with Berry, Bridges, and Tatum filling out the roles of Statesman.
Raise your hand if you honestly thought watching the first Kingsman trailer, it would get a sequel with an even larger ensemble cast.
Luckily, we don’t have long to wait. The film lands in theaters on September 22nd. I’ll be there day one. The first film embraced the over-the-top Bond-esque movie. The whole western feel to the Statesman is brilliantly crazy. Sound off below on what you think of the trailer. Here’s hoping the villain is just as insane as Samuel L. Jackson in the first film.
