If you think “Kingsman: The Secret Service” was good, get ready cause the sequel, “Kingsman: The Golden Circle”, is going to be even more action-packed!
Director Matthew Vaughn was successful in crafting a violent and vulgar spy movie that resonated well with fans and critics alike, in addition to making shitloads of money at the box office. The breakout star, Taron Egerton, is now making some bold claims that the 2nd instalment will top the original.
In speaking with Cinema Blend during a press interview while promoting the animated film, “Sing”, Egerton explained, “[Matthew Vaughn] goes even further with it. It’s kind of absolutely crazy. Julianne Moore is the villain, and she’s genuinely terrifying. She’s really, really, really great. So it’s bigger, badder, more guns, you know? All that stuff. It’s fun.”
Although “The Secret Service” pretty much blew us away, it sounds like we haven’t seen nothing yet. The 27-year-old actor opened up about the nature of the sequel and revealed that the upcoming film will give us double doses on everything that worked in favour of the 1st film. If it ain’t broken, why fix it right?
As for when the first official trailer will arrive, Egerton didn’t have a definitive answer but he believes that we could be seeing it in the next few months. “I can’t imagine it would be very deep into next year, I think maybe there would be a teaser within the 1st couple of months of next year. We’re now an October release. It depends, I really don’t know. Matthew Vaughn works in mysterious ways, but you won’t be disappointed, it’s going to be awesome,” said the actor.
Not only will Egerton be reprising his role as the street kid turned elite government spy, Gary “Eggsy” Unwin, with Colin Firth as Harry Hart, the sequel will also be introducing a lineup of big-name American stars to the franchise, including Julianne Moore (as aforementioned), Jeff Bridges, Channing Tatum, and Halle Berry. Not bad at all.
Kingsman is based on “The Secret Service”, a comic book series created by Mark Millar and Dave Gibbons. It is considered Matthew’s most successful movie to date as it received impressive reviews and grossed around US$401 million worldwide.
The sequel, “Kingsman: The Golden Circle” is set to be released on 6th October 2017.
