Kingsman: The Golden Circle Trailer

"I hope you're ready for what comes next…" 20th Century Fox has finally released the first trailer for the sequel Kingsman: The Golden Circle, once again directed by Matthew Vaughn, bringing back Taron Egerton as the British superspy known as "Eggsy". We've been waiting for this, and it's finally here and it actually looks fun. Colin Firth also returns, with Mark Strong as Merlin, and a cast featuring Channing Tatum, Pedro Pascal, Jeff Bridges, Halle Berry, Julianne Moore, Vinnie Jones, as well as Hanna Alström, and Sophie Cookson. This seems to be a riff on America, as the Kingsman guys end up working with an American agency. I'm digging all the action so far, and I'm wondering if this could be a surprise hit.

Here's the first trailer (+ poster) for Matthew Vaughn's Kingsman: The Golden Circle, from YouTube:

When an attack on the Kingsman headquarters takes place and a new villain rises, Eggsy (Taron Egerton) and Merlin (Mark Strong) are forced to work together with the American agency Statesman to save the world. Kingsman: The Golden Circle is once again directed by English filmmaker Matthew Vaughn, of the first Kingsman: The Secret Service movie, as well as the films Layer Cake, Stardust, Kick-Ass, and X-Men: First Class previously. The screenplay is again co-written by Matthew Vaughn and Jane Goldman; based on the characters created by Mark Millar and Dave Gibbons. 20th Century Fox will release Vaughn's Kingsman: The Golden Circle in theaters everywhere starting September 29th this fall. First impression?

Why would it be a surprise hit when the first film has already proven to be great?

I think he means "commercial hit", which is sad that movies have to make hundreds of millions (domestic) these days to get the hype of it being a "hit". It shouldn't be an issue with the critical and box office success of the first, but this opening in late September. FYI: It made 130 mil us on a 90 mil budget, with a very good 400 million worldwide (source: box office mojo). That's a hit in my book.

Because ya know, a sequel is rarely good.

Not really...I can name a ton of great sequels with little effort Godfather 2 Empire Strikes Back The Two Towers Back to the Future 2 X-Men 2 Superman 2 Star Trek 2 The Dark Knight Terminator 2 Toy Story 2 spiderman 2 Captain America Winter Soldier Evil Dead 2 Dawn of the Dead Mad Max Fury Road I can go on and on and on

Sheesh go on. ( I suspect you reached the end of the list... ;D). Please do me a favor and post the list of the awful sequels... Two towers isn't a sequel, it's the continuation of one story. Do you know that LOTR was one book that was split in three by the publisher ?

tarek on Apr 25, 2017


Two Towers is a cinematic sequel. Technically Star Wars was all one story too in Georges' mind. But that doesn't change the fact that they are cinematic sequels. I don't want to split hairs over the source material. The list of bad sequels is the same size as the list of bad many countless bad movies are made that are the first in a series? A ton. The only reason we call out bad sequels is when the first was really good and our expectations are crushed. But they aren't any better or worse on average than a stand alone movie. Some are good...some are bad.

Two towers is part of a tryptich. One cannot make sense without the other. So technically, it's not a "sequel". As for Empire strikes back, I doubt Lucas had it in mind when he wrote Star Wars. Many things hint to the fact that Lucas didn't have any clue on where he was heading to. Vader wasn't Luke father when he wrote the first script. It was probably Kasdan who was behind this twist. Now, let me introduce you to the list of awul sequels of good movies: Jaws 2 Matrix Reloaded Taken 2 Young guns 2 The fly 2 The exorcist 2 Poltergeist 2 Transformers 2 Carrie 2 Jeepers creepers 2 Robocop 2 The hangover 2 Speed 2 The mask 2 Blair witch 2 Ocean's twelve Caddyshack 2 Blues brothers 2 Ghost busters 2 Highlander 2 etc. I could also include what followed the 2nd sequel: Jaws 3, Indiana jones 4, Phantom menace, etc. So, unless you have great writers and directors working on a sequel, high odds the sequel will suck.

No one said bad sequels don't exist...just like there are bad stand alone movies. Your definition of a sequel is contrived. You're trying so hard to argue something that doesn't make sense. A sequel is a follow up movie in a series...period.

LeoForPrez on Apr 25, 2017


aliens 2 makes this list unneccesary!

ari smulders on Apr 25, 2017


Was happy 'till you mention the abomination Star Trek 2,but conveniently "forgot" Temple of Doom,The Road Warrior-just no!

Maxim Karagogov on Apr 25, 2017


You didnt like Wrath of Kahn or Aliens? Your opinion is moronic and therefor irrelevant to me. No one said "all sequels" Einstein. Just that there are countless good ones and its not some rare occurrence. Your reading comprehensions skills are as bad as your taste.

LeoForPrez on Apr 25, 2017


Calm down friendo. I think he was talking about Star trek into darkness. ;D And I think he was saying that you omitted to add Aliens in the good sequels list. ( Or I hope so)

tarek on Apr 25, 2017


He listed Aliens as a bad Temple of Doom

LeoForPrez on Apr 25, 2017


Hopefully it's a bad wording. Or we have to throw him through the Moon door.

tarek on Apr 25, 2017


great list! don't forget aliens 2!

ari smulders on Apr 25, 2017


The first one was entertaining, I'm sure this will be too. Most excited for Pedro Pascal!

Efterklang on Apr 25, 2017


Statesman??? LOL. SO happy to see Firth somehow made it through the last one.

DAVIDPD on Apr 25, 2017


Honestly... the trailer was pretty lame. I LOVED the first, and pretty much everything Vaughn has done is Cake (pun intended). I've become a fan of Egerton and Firth since then, and Tatum and Pedro Pascal are icing on the... cake.

LeoForPrez on Apr 25, 2017


Another on my must-see! Can't wait!

Brandon Cole on Apr 25, 2017


This looks great...count me in

LeoForPrez on Apr 25, 2017


I was very surprised with the first one. I had no interest initially, and ended up redboxing it for the hell of it. And damn if that wasn't a hell of a good movie! Will definitely check this out!

grimjob on Apr 25, 2017


I've been so looking forward to this as I thought the first one was fabulously good fun. Vaughan doesn't do sequels and I'm trying to keep my enthusiasm checked but I'm hoping they recreate the lightning. Kingsman and Statesman - love it!

Elton John gets poster billing. That's interesting. Also, is the F-word now allowed in non-red band trailers, or did I just mishear the end of the trailer?

Movie Bear on Apr 25, 2017


We live alas in a F-ed world where people can't say two words without using this F-word. Sooner or later we will see a Disney princess throwing f-words to her prince charming. Mark my word.

tarek on Apr 25, 2017


Oh, I would love so much any Disney princess to do that. Or take off a bra ...

shiboleth on Apr 25, 2017


I think they just slightly obscured the end of the word to pass.

cheesewhiz on Apr 28, 2017


Totally agree, church scene was fabulous. Honestly, I didn't see that coming. But, on the end, I was thrilled somebody did something like that ...

shiboleth on Apr 25, 2017


Hopefully, there will be again some subversive parts, just like in the first one. If so, yes, I am totally interested ...

shiboleth on Apr 25, 2017


I wish Matthew Vaughn would've kept directing X-men movies, but this will have to suffice I guess...

THE_RAW_ on Apr 25, 2017


Im all in

Ah yes, the movie studio logo that colorblind people can't see. (Source: Am colorblind, can't see)
