Kingsman: The Secret Service was a surprise hit in 2014. A modestly budgeted and stylishly directed spoof of spy films and in particular the James Bond franchise, the film featured Taron Egerton as “Eggsy,” a London street tough being introduced into the world of spycraft and tailored suits by master spy Colin Firth’s Harry Hart. And when your film makes back five times its budget, rest assured a sequel follows. And that beings us to Kingsman: The Golden Circle, which sees Eggsy teaming up with his American counterparts in the Statesmen to stop another international threat. This first trailer is big on the visuals but doesn’t give us an idea as to how these puzzle pieces fit together. The one thing that it does hint at is the return of a character anyone who looked at the cast list knew was coming back.
Here’s the official synopsis –
“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…
Kingsmen: The Golden Circle hits theaters September 22, 2017.
