Hold on to your cowboy hats, because the first official images from “Kingsman: The Golden Circle” have been unveiled.
In addition to giving us a new look at Taron Egerton as lead character Gary “Eggsy” Unwin, these photos also shine the spotlight on the franchise’s 3 newcomers: Channing Tatum, Halle Berry, and Jeff Bridges.
Although the sequel will continue to focus on the adventures of Eggsy, he will be introduced to the members of the Statesman, the U.S. counterpart to the Kingsmen. Here’s how Egerton describes the new team-up, saying, “If the 1st Kingsman was Captain America, then this is very much The Avengers now.”
While Tatum – in his signature cowboy hat – and Bridges appear to be in Western-style clothes, Berry’s simplistic outfit bears resemblance to the suit-and-tie aesthetic of the Kingsmen. Actor Mark Strong even teased that his character Merlin may have a thing for Berry’s American spymaster, Ginger.
“I quite like playing the tech nerd who can handle himself in a conflict situation. But what I really like about this 2nd film is that Merlin meets Halle Berry’s character, who plays his equivalent role in the Statesmen. And she had her clipboard and her glasses, just like Merlin. And what happens when two tech nerds come together? Might there be some geeky love?” asked Strong.
In a previous interview, Taron Egerton told Cinema Blend that “Kingsman: The Golden Circle” is going to be “bigger, badder, and has more guns“.
“Kingsman: The Golden Circle” will be released on 29th September 2017.
