When we first watched spy-action comedy “Kingsman: The Secret Service” back in in 2015, we had a feeling that it wouldn’t be the last of the characters. So when it was announced that “Kingsman” was getting a sequel, we more than pumped our fists in the air and jumped for joy.
It was a celebration 😀
Director Matthew Vaughn, who was responsible for “Kingsman: The Secret Service”, will return to direct his first ever sequel: “Kingsman: The Golden Circle”. Of course, the sequel would be nothing without Taron Egerton, who will be back as suave super-spy Eggsy. Joining him is Colin Firth who will reprise his role as Eggsy’s mentor Harry (wait, didn’t he die?), as well as fellow A-listers Jeff Bridges, Halle Berry, Julianne Moore, Channing Tatum (check this guy all decked out on set in May last year!), Elton John, and more.
The official synopsis is as follows:
“With their headquarters destroyed and the world held hostage, members of Kingsman find new allies when they discover a spy organization in the United States known as Statesman. In an adventure that tests their strength and wits, the elite secret agents from both sides of the pond band together to battle a ruthless enemy and save the day, something that’s becoming a bit of a habit for Eggsy.”
And just today (Tuesday, 25th April 2017), we were finally given our long awaited first glimpse at the movie via its official trailer. The almost 2-minute long clip more or less explains what happened after “Kingsman: The Secret Service” when the remaining Kingsman were exposed. We see the strategic attack on the secret spy organisation complete with explosives and charred remains, which forces the Kingsman (Eggsy, Merlin, and Rozy) to go to the US to join forces with Statesman, Kingsman’s American counterpart.
We also see Harry, the original Galahad, very much back from the dead, although the trailer didn’t offer any explanation. We’ll take a wild guess and assume that there may be lots more in store closer to the movie’s premiere 😉
