After quite a few teases and a wait that seemed like weeks, 20th Century Fox (finally) revealed the first official trailer for their highly, highly anticipated sequel, Kingsman: The Golden Circle. Returning to direct is Matthew Vaughn as he continues the story that takes the classy dressed Kingsman down a much more challenging path. When their headquarters and luxury suit shop are destroyed, the Kingsman must band together with the Statesman, their allied spy organization of the US, to defeat a common enemy and save the world.
Now this is a teaser trailer. And when I say that, that’s because it reveals basically nothing about the actual plot, while still giving us a fantastic taste as to what’s to come. The destruction of the Kingsman’s facilities as we know it is enough to get my ass in the seat, but then we see a handful of fast-paced action shots – including both Taron Egerton’s Eggsy and Channing Tatum’s Statesman character – that look like they’ve been leveled up from the first film. But the cherry on top? It’s all tied together with a little Frank Sinatra, which only makes it that much better.
As I said earlier, this is exactly what a teaser trailer should be. Now my only hope is that they continue to reveal very little new footage as we get closer to its release. I’m already sold on the movie, so what else do I really need to see? Kingsman was an outrageous take on a Bond movie, which makes me pumped to see what kind of things Vaughn has put together for the follow-up. Vaughn’s past work is plenty to make you confident as he’s not only very strong at style and story-telling, but he knows how to give fans a ridiculously good time. And now with the kind of cast this sequel holds, Kingsman: The Golden Circle promises to be an 80s like action movie set inside a modern day disco. Yeah.
Take a look or two at the new trailer below and after doing so, let me know what you think of it in the comments. Were you a fan of the original? How excited are you for the sequel? Did the teaser get you even more interested? Vaughn’s Kingsman: The Golden Circle is released on September 27th, 2017 and stars Taron Egerton, Julianne Moore, Mark Strong, Halle Berry, Channing Tatum, and Jeff Bridges.
