After a few days of teases, 20th Century Fox has officially released the first trailer for Kingsman: The Golden Circle. You can watch the trailer below.
In 2014, Matthew Vaughn’s Kingsman: The Secret Service broke onto the scene. The film – which was based on Mark Millar’s graphic novel of the same name – went on to break box office records, grossing over $400 million at the worldwide box office. This year, the long-awaited sequel arrives in theaters. In addition to Colin Firth reprising his role as Harry Hart, Channing Tatum, Halle Berry, Julianne Moore and Jeff Bridges join the franchise in the upcoming film, titled Kingsman: The Golden Circle.
The film’s director recently sat down with Entertainment Weekly to discuss what initially scared him about doing a follow-up:
“Just doing a sequel, you’re kind of violating that promise of originality. Sequelitis is a plague I have no interest in contracting.”
Kingsman star Taron Egerton also touched on the new movie, comparing the first film to Captain America: The First Avenger and The Golden Circle to The Avengers:
“If the first Kingsman was Captain America, then this is very much The Avengers now. For the first one, I felt like if I wasn’t really good then it wouldn’t work. This time, the story still unfolds through my eyes but this is still a true ensemble piece. And also, I’ve had a bit more experience. I’m not asking the crew what every piece of camera equipment does.”
Returning actor Colin Firth also chimed in on the sequel and where we find his character in this one, as … spoiler for the original; he’s supposed to be dead:
“I’ve read the rumors, but I can’t reveal if I’m even in this film. I got in the first Kingsman by virtue of my improbability. An actor known for chick flicks as a fighting badass. So given that irony, I’d say anything is possible.”
Not much is known about the new film, but this new trailer sheds some light on a few plot details. What do you guys think? Are you excited for the upcoming Kingsman sequel?
Kingsman: The Golden Circle opens everywhere on September 22nd, 2017.
