Honestly, I’m not even sure this trailer was even necessary. Everything we needed to know about ‘Kingsman: The Golden Circle’ was present in yesterday’s teasers, provided you were willing to go frame-by-frame through the video, take countless screenshots, and form some grand narrative in your head. I watched the trailer in realtime and even I was able to learn that there’s… Julianne Moore? And she works in a… pie shop? Or maybe a bowling alley? She was definitely wearing a bowling league shirt, I figured that much out at least. Unless that wasn’t Julianne Moore? Honestly, the video was a little fuzzy and I couldn’t…
Kingsman: the Golden Circle
Last week, 20th Century Fox teased the first footage from Kingsman: The Golden Circle via ten glorious seconds of accelerated action. There were gunfights, and Julianne Moore making burgers (I think), and plenty more blink-and-you’ll-miss-it looks as the exciting new world of Matthew Vaughan’s film. So, secure in the knowledge that studios never release trailer teases without the trailer following shortly thereafter, we all gathered around our computers the following day and waited for our first look at the highly anticipated sequel. And waited. Aaaaaaand waited.
If you blink, you won’t just miss a couple of frames of the new Kingsman: The Golden Circle trailer — you’ll miss the whole thing. In keeping with Kingsman’s subversive, irreverent attitude, the first teaser for the upcoming sequel sidesteps the usual format: You won’t find a pointless five-second clip here. Instead, 20th Century Fox has served up the entire forthcoming trailer, condensed to 10 hyper-edited seconds.
Well it’s about dang time, wouldn’t you say? The first photos from Kingsman: The Golden Circle have debuted, revealing new American spy characters played by Channing Tatum (in a cowboy hat!), Halle Berry and Jeff Bridges. Oh, and Taron Egerton’s Eggsy is back, too, and sporting a rather sharp orange suit — somewhere, Karl Lagerfeld just felt the most mysterious chill abruptly run down his spine during his morning Diet Coke.
Cheerio and cor blimey! Today brings a right proper new poster for Kingsman: The Golden Circle, and it’s lookin’ a bit cheeky, innit? Makes you wanna round up the lads, and head down to the pub for a bit of tea and crumpe— I’m sorry, I can’t keep this up. I’ve never been to Britain. I don’t even know what any of that means, I just know they said it on Skins.
If there’s a silver lining to 2017, it’s that Hollywood is gearing up for an excellent year of action blockbuster sequels. Over the next few months, we can expect follow-ups to Guardians of the Galaxy, John Wick, Furious 7, Dawn of the Planet of the Apes, and, of course, Star Wars: The Last Jedi. And often neglected from these lists — but no less exciting from an action fan’s perspective — is Matthew Vaughn’s sequel to Kingsman: The Golden Circle, one of the more ridiculous action movies to be released in the past few years.
Big things are a-happenin’ over at Fox, per The Hollywood Reporter. The studio made a slew of scheduling changes on the night before Thanksgiving as a sort of special edition of a Friday dump. (That term refers to the PR practice of burying bad or otherwise uninteresting news on a Friday afternoon, when coverage will be minimal.) Big-name projects have all been shuffled around, and that’s all fully detailed below, but the most eye-catching item on Fox’s docket happens to be an unnamed project from James Cameron’s production company Lightstorm Entertainment.
A few months back, Taron Egerton teased the return of Colin Firth in Kingsman: The Golden Circle, Matthew Vaughn’s sequel to his surprise hit film based on Mark Millar’s graphic novel. Despite the fact that [SPOILER] Firth’s return seemed a bit impossible given the ending of Kingsman: The Secret Service, a new photo from the set of the sequel confirms that Harry Hart is indeed back, and he’s palling around with one of your favorite Game of Thrones stars.
Former British footballer Vinnie Jones landed his big acting break in the Matthew Vaughn-produced Guy Ritchie film Lock, Stock and Two Smoking Barrels — so it’s hardly surprising that Jones is the latest addition to the cast of Kingsman: The Golden Circle. If anything, it has us wondering why Jones didn’t pop up in the Kingsman universe a little sooner.
With every awesome addition to the cast of Kingsman: The Golden Circle, we ask, “Could this cast get any better?” And then another fantastic actor joins the lineup. So if we just continue saying that after every casting announcement, it shouldn’t be long before Tom Hardy and Tom Cruise and Charlize Theron join this thing, right? That day isn’t today, but the Kingsman sequel does have another very cool addition: Jeff Bridges.
