Eggsy (Taron Egerton) and Merlin (Mark Strong) KINGSMAN: THE GOLDEN CIRCLE

Marvel’s most non-Marvel movie ever is right around the corner with its sequel premiering this September. KINGSMAN: THE GOLDEN CIRCLE is looking to build upon its franchise’s Rated-R, action filled, dark comedy originality.

KINGSMAN is one of 20th Century FOX’s franchises that uses its R rating to its advantage. Just like DEADPOOL and LOGAN, the success of the KINGSMAN franchise works pushing the social norms for superhero movies. It is violent with a hint of gore. It uses dark comedy suited for an adult audience.

KINGSMAN also unapologetically crudely parodies American culture. With that said the KINGSMAN: THE GOLDEN CIRCLE is going to expand the story inside of Marvel’s most non-Marvel movies.

Quick Recap And Highlights

Eggsy (Taron Egerton) and his English league of well-tailored assassins are back at it again. By the look of the trailer, there is a quicker pace and more action in this film than the previous one. The trailer begins with Eggsy working without his partner Harry Hart as a Kingsmen. There are some CGI action sequences with Eggsy on top of a car shooting at bad guys, and it all looks terrific.

Next, we see the villain and get to the plot of the movie in the trailer. Poppy, played by Julianne Moore, is telling someone to say goodbye to the Kingsmen as she blows up their locations in the UK. As Poppy destroys the Kingsmen in the UK, Eggsy regroups to seek the help of the Statesmen. The Statesmen, which is the American version of the Kingsmen, are led by Champagne (Jeff Bridges), Tequila (Channing Tatum), Ginger Ale (Halle Berry), and Whiskey (Pedro Pascal).

The trailer continues with Eggsy joining Statesmen Tequila, Whiskey, and Ginger Ale to take on Poppy and The Golden Circle. There are a lot more action and cool fighting sequences that involve Eggsy, Tequila, and Whiskey.

Not to mention Harry Hart (Colin Firth), who was seemingly killed off in the first KINGSMAN, returns to join Eggsy. Everything in the trailer is fast paced, and it looks just as exciting as the first KINGSMAN film.


The biggest revelation from THE GOLDEN CIRCLE trailer is the return of Harry Hart. If you already saw KINGSMAN: SECRET SERVICE you understand why this is such a big reveal.

In KINGSMAN: SECRET SERVICE, Harry Hart dies while fighting a hate group in a church in Kentucky. Killing off Harry in the first film was a bold choice in direction for the first film. On the one hand, they lost a great character but the other hand it helped Eggsy become independent Kingsmen.

The killing of Harry Hart in the first film worked well because Eggsy stopped being the sidekick and he became the hero. Harry Hart returning in THE GOLDEN CIRCLE is a bold choice, but at the same time, it feels like a setup for another twist.

We can also expect the film to delve into the world of the KINGSMAN considering the introduction of the Statesmen. Adding the Statesmen to the KINGSMAN franchise expands the world leaving the audience to think how many other Kingsmen organizations there are. Let’s not also forget that introduction to Poppy who is the leader of The Golden Circle and someone who’s recruited former Kingsman trainee Charlie Hesketh.

KINGSMAN: THE GOLDEN CIRCLE is going to be a fun time at the movies. In their second time around the film franchise will be adding the Statesmen and bring a character back to life. THE GOLDEN CIRCLE is operating at a faster pace this time around, and it looks great.

KINGSMAN: THE GOLDEN CIRCLE premieres in theaters everywhere on September 22.
