Kingsman: The Secret Service was arguably one of the best action films of 2014 and a massive hit at the worldwide box office, so it didn’t take long for 20th Century Fox to announce a follow-up, which will be titled Kingsman: The Golden Circle.
Details about the sequel are scarce at the moment, but we know that the film will bring back Taron Egerton’s Eggsy and Mark Strong’s Merlin along with a number of familiar faces and bring in some new players such as Julianne Moore’s villainous Poppy. The film will also introduce the Kingsman’s American equivalent, the Statesman.
While doing the press rounds for his upcoming animated movie, Sing, Egerton spoke with CinemaBlend and teased that The Golden Circle will double down on everything that fans loved about the first movie:
“[Matthew Vaughn] goes even further with it. It’s kind of absolutely crazy. Julianne Moore is the villain, and she’s genuinely terrifying. She’s really, really, really great. So it’s bigger, badder, more guns, you know? All that stuff. It’s fun.”
As for when we’ll see the first trailer for the movie, Egerton said the following:
“I can’t imagine it would be very deep into next year, I think maybe there would be a teaser within the first couple of months of next year. We’re now an October release. It depends, I really don’t know. Matthew Vaughn works in mysterious ways, but you won’t be disappointed, it’s going to be awesome.”
Kingsman: The Golden Circle opens on October 6, 2017.
