[Trailer] ‘Kingsman: The Golden Circle’ Lassos Our Attention

Fox has unleashed two brand new trailers for Kingsman: The Golden Circle and I couldn’t be more excited. The superspy-filled sequel to 2014’s Kingsman: The Secret Service, this follow-up looks to be even more colorful and insane than its predecessor. Taron Egerton, Sophie Cookson, Colin Firth, and Mark Strong are back and they’ve brought a fun assortment of newcomers (Jeff Bridges, Channing Tatum, Julianne Moore, etc.) along for the ride.

When their headquarters are destroyed and the world is held hostage, the Kingsman’s journey leads them to the discovery of an allied spy organization in the US. These two elite secret organizations must band together to defeat a common enemy.

Vaughn and Goldman have taken a far more sci-fi bent here than in the first one, but I’m perfectly fine with that. It has taken the Roger Moore-era James Bond flavor of the first and added a healthy dose of “James Bond Jr.” absurdity to the proceedings. Luckily, the blend seems to be perfect, from the laser lasso on display here to the projectile robot fist of the last trailer. The Spy Who Love Me-style parachute gag is also a nice touch. I like what The Golden Circle is selling and it is selling it well.

Kingsman: The Golden Circle is an original sequel based on the comic book created by Mark Millar and Dave Gibbons. The picture is directed by Matthew Vaughn, from a screenplay by Vaughn and Jane Goldman. The film stars Taron Egerton as ‘Eggsy Unwin/Galahad’, Sophie Cookson as ‘Roxy Morton/Lancelot’, Mark Strong as ‘Merlin’, Colin Firth as ‘Harry Hart’, Julianne Moore as ‘Poppy’, Jeff Bridges as ‘Champagne’, Halle Berry as Ginger’, Channing Tatum as ‘Tequila’, Pedro Pascal as ‘Jack Daniels/Whiskey’, Edward Holcroft as ‘Charlie Hesketh’, Samantha Womack as ‘Michelle Unwin’, Michael Caine as ‘Chester King/Arthur’, Hanna Alstrom as ‘Princess Tilde’, and Poppy Delevingne as ‘Clara Von Gluckfberg’. Vinnie Jones, Michael Gambon, Matt Letscher, and Elton John also appear.

Kingsman: The Golden Circle arrives in theaters on September 22nd, 2017.
