20th Century Fox has unveiled the first trailer for the highly anticipated sequel Kingsman: The Golden Circle. Director Matthew Vaughn returns to continue the story of Eggsy (Taron Egerton) and his fellow Kingsman, who find themselves in a pickle when their headquarters is destroyed and the world is held hostage. They must subsequently journey across the pond to the U.S., where they team up with their American cohorts in Statesman to take down a common enemy.
This is a really great teaser trailer in that it reveals pretty much none of the plot, but offers a tantalizing taste of what’s ahead—all scored to Frank Sinatra‘s “My Way” for good measure. We see the destruction of Kingsman and some really great action shots involving Channing Tatum‘s American “Statesman” character, and a very brief but exciting peek at Colin Firth‘s return.
But that’s it! And I really hope (likely in vain) we don’t see too much more as I’m already sold on this film. Kingsman was a hilarious, rip-roaring twist on a Bond movie, and I really can’t wait to see what Vaughn and co-writer Jane Goldman have put together for the sequel. Vaughn is a tremendous visual stylist who knows how to give audiences a good time, and with this phenomenal cast at his disposal, The Golden Circle promises to be one hell of a party.
Watch the Kingsman: The Golden Circle trailer below. The film also stars Julianne Moore, Mark Strong, Halle Berry, Sir Elton John, and Jeff Bridges. Kingsman: The Golden Circle opens in theaters on September 27th.
Here’s the official synopsis for Kingsman: The Golden Circle:
