The Hollywood Reporter notes that Kingsman: The Golden Circle has grossed a total of $3.4 million in Thursday night previews at the domestic box office.
The Matthew Vaughn directed sequel has more than doubled the $1.4 million preview night earnings of Kingsman: The Secret Service and is tracking for a $40 million-$45 million debut this weekend. Those numbers would put Kingsman: The Golden Circle ahead of the $36.2 million domestic debut of its predecessor, which later grossed a worldwide total of $414.4 million.
The Lego Ninjago Movie is expected to take the number two spot at the box office this weekend. The Warner Bros. Animation spin-off of The Lego Movie is looking at an opening weekend gross of approximately $30 million.

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…
Directed by Matthew Vaughn, The film stars Taryn Egerton, Mark Strong, Colin Firth, Jeff Bridges, Julianne Moore, Channing Tatum, Pedro Pascal, Vinnie Jones, Sir Elton John and Halle Berry.
Kingsman: The Golden Circle will be released in theaters on September 22, 2017.

5 Millarworld Projects Netflix Should Develop First
With news breaking that Neflix has purchased Millarworld, comic book fans have a lot of new digital content to look forward to. Mark Millar, the man whose work on The Ultimates inspired the on-screen depiction of the Avengers, has a huge cabal of books that explore distinct aspects of comic book archetypes. Not only will Netflix create content based off of the Millarworld catalog, but they will continue to publish new comic series as well.
Unfortunately, Kick-Ass and Kingsman, the two most successful franchises in Millarworld, are not part of the deal. While fans of the movies may be unhappy, I think every Millarworld project on this list has huge potential to capture the hearts of fans around the world. Millar’s unique mix of action, satire and heart distinguish his stories from everything else on the shelves, and I’m beyond excited to see what Neflix can whip up. Some of his books can work as movies, but some will work better as mature television programs, so I’m happy that Millarworld teamed up with Netflix instead of a traditional media company like Lionsgate or Sony.
