Eggsy is back in the first trailer for the Kingsman sequel!
In 2014, we were introduced to the Kingsman – an independent, international intelligence agency operating at the highest level of discretion, whose ultimate goal is to keep the world safe. The film received mixed reviews, but ultimately many enjoyed themselves despite the ludicrous plot and the overall film in general.
Now in the sequel titled The Golden Circle, our heroes will 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 organisation in the US called Statesman.
The Kingsman & Statesman alliance dates back to the day they were both founded and this new adventure will test their agents’ strength and wits to the limit. The two elite secret organisations must 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…
With a whole new organisation joining the film, there has been many familiar actors added to the film, including Channing Tatum, Halle Berry and Jeff Bridges. Funnily enough, their characters are all named after types of alcohol from Agent Jack Daniels to Tatum’s Agent Tequila, which just goes to show the Kingsman humour is going to be ever-present throughout the film.
As for the big bad? Julianne Moore will be taking on the role of Poppy, a lifestyle-guru-turned-terrorist who, of course, is after world domination.
Information on the film began circulating last year with the film releasing a graphic featuring the words: “Reports of my death have been greatly exaggerated.” Hmm. So yes, Colin Firth’s Harry Hart will be returning to the sequel, even though his character received a bullet to the head. We’d love to know how he managed that!
Kingsman alums Taron Egerton, Colin Firth & Mark Strong will return in the sequel. The film also stars Channing Tatum (Magic Mike), Halle Berry (X-Men), Julianne Moore (Still Alice), Jeff Bridges (True Grit) and Pedro Pascal (Game of Thrones).
Kingsman: The Golden Circle hits cinemas September 29.
