The first full trailer for “Kingsman: The Golden Circle” has arrived — with a bang.
Multiple explosions, to be more exact; it seems Eggsy’s future is a bit up in the air as we watch the Kingsman headquarters, haberdashery and more blown to smithereens. For there, the footage showcases the sequel’s new cast members, a host of James Bond-esque gadgets and gizmos, and yes, the return of Colin Firth’s Harry Hart, a bit scruffy and worse for wear, but apparently very much alive.
The sequel to 2015’s “Kingsman: The Secret Service,” inspired by the comic by Mark Millar and Dave Gibbons, the spy action-comedy brings Eggsy, Merlin and Roxy to the United States to join forces with Kingsman’s counterpart Statesman to save the world.
“Kingsman: The Secret Service” introduced the world to Kingsman – an independent, international intelligence agency operating at the highest level of discretion, whose ultimate goal is to keep the world safe. In “Kingsman: The Golden Circle,” our heroes face a new challenge. When their headquarters are destroyed and the world is held hostage, their journey leads them to the discovery of an allied spy organization in the US called Statesman, dating back to the day they were both founded. In a new adventure that tests their agents’ strength and wits to the limit, these two elite secret organizations band together to defeat a ruthless common enemy, in order to save the world, something that’s becoming a bit of a habit for Eggsy …
Reuniting director Matthew Vaughn with co-writer Jane Goldman, “The Golden Circle” also sees Taron Egerton, Colin Firth, Mark Strong and Sophie Cookson reprise their roles from the first film. They’re joined by Julianne Moore, Halle Berry, Elton John, Channing Tatum and Jeff Bridges, among others. “Kingsman: The Golden Circle” opens Sept. 22.
