It’s hard to do anything truly new nowadays. So if you do something well the first time…might as well keep the ball rolling. That’s exactly what director Matthew Vaughn and screenwriter Jane Goldman have done with their second trip back into the wacky world of the Kingsman. The surprise spy franchise is coming back this fall and in a big way.
The first movie, Kingman: The Secret Service, was a surprise success that proved that there is still legs in the spy genre, even if your name isn’t James Bond. Vaughn adapted Mark Millar’s graphic novel for the big screen while making an action star out of unknown actor Taron Egerton (Eddie the Eagle) and an unexpected hero out of Colin Firth (The King’s Speech). It followed the British “secret service” known as the Kingsman, who covertly saved the world from a megalomaniac, played by Samuel L. Jackson.
In the newest installment an American spy counterpart, the Statesman, has been added to the equation along with multiple Academy Award winners to the film. Halle Berry, Jeff Bridges, and Channing Tatum, all join in the fun to stop the plans of Julianne Moore’s Poppy who has a devious master plan. It looks like a continuation of the first taken to a whole new level and could be the perfect Fall release. Check it out!
“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…
Kingsman: The Golden Circle opens on September 22nd, 2017.
