Kingsman Sequel Due in September
I hadn’t realized Kingsman: The Secret Service was as successful as it was, making over $400 million worldwide. That explains why a sequel, Kingsman: The Golden Circle, is coming this September.
As with the first movie, this one is directed by Matthew Vaughn and co-written by him and Jane Goldman. It stars Taron Egerton and carried over from the previous, Mark Strong and oddly, Colin Firth. I’m surprised, given events of the first film, he’s still in it, but there are always flashbacks, I guess. He’s the only reason I saw the first movie so his presence improves the chances I’ll see this one.
New this time are Julianne Moore (as the villain), Halle Berry, Elton John, Channing Tatum, and Jeff Bridges. Quite the cast! Here’s the official description:
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…
Ooooh, now I’m hoping for Tatum in a fancy suit as a Statesman!
