Given the fact that the first Kingsman movie was a spot-on homage to James Bond movies, you’d think we’d all be excited for more of the same. More debonair spy sequences, more dangerous undercover double-speak, and more gunfights in famous locations. Instead, 20th Century Fox has flipped the script, giving us a sequel that promises a delightful sendup of American action movies as well. What would happen if James Bond and John Rambo were forced to join forces to solve an international mystery? If the early trailers and credits are any indication, we’re about to find out.
Just about every major studio in Hollywood has a new Robin Hood movie in the works, which means we’ll all be pretty sick of the famously charitable thief in the next few years or so. But it looks like the Robin Hood deluge has been slightly delayed, as the first of those films — an origin story starring Taron Egerton — was just pushed back six months. Feel free to use this extra time as you see fit; read a Stephen King novel, learn a new skill, have an existential crisis, or make some flash cards and memorize all the different Robin Hood movies that are coming out. You’ll be the envy of all your needlessly confused friends!
At long last, a Kingsman will meet the greatest spy America has to offer. No, not the Statesmen or their Golden Circles, but FX’s Archer! See Eggsy and Sterling match wits and glasses in an animated crossover clip fresh from Comic-Con 2017.
You may not be ready for Comic-Con, but the cast of Kingsman: The Golden Circle is all dressed up and ready to head to San Diego. The highly-anticipated sequel will hold court in Hall H this week, and 20th Century Fox has officially revealed which stars will be participating in the panel via a new series of very bespoke character posters. Spoiler: Pretty much everyone you want to see will be there — yes, even Jeff Bridges.
Matthew Vaughn’s Kingsman sequel is taking Eggsy & Co. across the pond to the good ol’ US of A, where they’ll meet the members of Statesman, the American iteration of the top-notch super-secret spy agency — including new characters played by Jeff Bridges and Channing Tatum. As you can see in this new featurette for Kingsman: The Golden Circle, the agents aren’t the only notable thing about Statesman, which manufactures its very own signature bourbon. And it looks like Kingsman fans (of legal drinking age, of course) will have a chance to taste that branded booze relatively soon.
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.
