Before the panel even happened at San Diego Comic Con, a brand new trailer was dropped for Kingsman: The Golden Circle. And it is action packed. Oh, and red-band, so be careful where you watch this.
The trailer is a whole lot of fun and gives more context on what to expect in the upcoming film. We get to see that Colin Firth’s character Harry will have a prominent role and an eye patch. Julianne Moore is Poppy the villain who is responsible for blowing up the Kingsman headquarters. Halle Berry is the brains of the Statesmen and plays Ginger Ale. Taron Egerton’s Eggsy is not impressed by the Statesmen and their skipping rope tricks (although that lasso does cut a man in half so that’s impressive). All in all, it was a fun trailer but I could definitely do without that song.
At the SDCC panel, the cast (Taron Egerton, Colin Firth, Channing Tatum, Halle Berry, Pedro Pascal, and Jeff Bridges) along with the screenwriters ( Jane Goldman and Dave Gibbons) and original comic book writer Mark Millar, showed off some clips and got fans pumped for the upcoming movie. The panel actually kicked off with this hilarious animation of Eggsy meeting Archer‘s Sterling Archer (voiced by H. Jon Benjamin).
The cast then showed off the opening sequence of the film which can be seen broken up in the trailer where Eggsy is confronted by Charlie and have an extended fight scene in and out of a taxi cab.
The cast went on to share some fun tidbits about the film. The Statesmen are a romanticized version of “Southern Gentlemen” and the alcohol/bourbon business is their front. Egerton can’t best Tatum in a fight. Berry’s character is the mixer and promises her character has hidden depths. Pascal trained with experts on how to use a lasso and whip. Bridges’ character is called Champagne and likes to surround himself with things that scare him. The meaning of the term “The Golden Circle” was revealed and it’s a branding that shows the length Poppy’s people will go to in order to show their loyalty.
Kingsman: The Golden Circle will hit the big screen on September 22, 2017.
