First Kingsman 2 photos feature spies aplenty; new details emerge

04.13.2017

One of this year’s most hotly anticipated movies for film geeks is KINGSMAN: THE GOLDEN CIRCLE, but it's one we’ve seen so little for. The most we’ve gotten are posters with nothing but glasses and words on them, or just a pair of arms. What are we supposed to do with those? Insinuate? Well, now KINGSMAN fans, you can finally put some images in your back pocket because we have the first photos from the new movie, courtesy of EW:

Taron Egerton looking dapper as Eggsy:

Halle Berry looking geeky as Ginger

And here’s Channing Tatum as a roppin’ cowboy:

Finally there’s Jeff Bridges, looking like a curmudgeon-y Head of Statesman

EW was also able to speak to the cast and director Matthew Vaughn, who emphasized how doing this movie with a vastly different style was key to not getting infected with “sequelitis”:

“Just doing a sequel, you’re kind of violating that promise of originality. Sequelitis is a plague I have no interest in contracting.

Egerton went on to liken the KINGSMAN series to the Marvel movies, saying if the first film was CAPTAIN AMERICA: THE FIRST AVENGER, then this film is THE AVENGERS. This time around the Kingsman will team-up with an American agency, called the Statesman, so how they will co-exist with the new team is paramount to the film. This includes – dare I say – love, particularly between Mark Strong’s Merlin and Berry’s Ginger:

I quite like playing the tech nerd who can handle himself in a conflict situation. But what I really like about this second film is that Merlin meets Halle Berry’s character, who plays his equivalent role in the Statesmen. And she had her clipboard and her glasses, just like Merlin. And what happens when two tech nerds come together? Might there be some geeky love?

Ah, you get it, Mark-o.

There will be more characters, like Julianne Moore’s Poppy, who is a “Martha Stewart-ish entrepreneur” and Elton John as a “Vaughn-ized” version of himself. Then there’s the returning Colin Firth as Harry, whose survival is explained by Firth in the most glorious way possible:

I got in the first Kingsman by virtue of my improbability. An actor known for chick flicks as a fighting badass. So given that irony, I’d say anything is possible.

So far I'm liking what I'm seeing, even if it's not very much. Everyone sure looks the part and it's great Vaughn is finding ways to keep everything feeling fresh and new. Paul Shirey and Sean Wist mentioned how they saw some footage at CinemaCon, and how they saw a scene featuring a laser rope, slicing and dicing fools and Egerton and Tatum teaming-up to put the hurt on some baddies. I can't wait for that footage to drop, which could be soon now that promo materials like these are dropping, so stay tuned for all your gentlemanly spy goodies!

KINGSMAN: THE GOLDEN CIRCLE arrives September 29.

So far so good except maybe for Halle Berry who looks like she's "trying too hard". Anyways it way too early to judge, maybe (or definetly) at some point she'll lose the glasses, flick her hair back and proceed to kick some ass in a gimmicky "one-take" shot.

Initially, I had no interest in Kingsman. I just brushed it off as a movie I knew I wouldn't enjoy. But I ended up watching it on tv and loved it. I fully trust Matthew Vaughn to give us something equally as fun, if not more so!

This looks good. I'm digging the feel of the movie too. Where the Kingsman are a huge send up of the typical British gent, the Statesmen seem to be a send-up of the American tycoon. Good touch!

I loved the first movie. I am joyed the comic. I'm really looking forward to this movie. However I am having one little problem so far. In the first film, the movie took time to explain how a gentleman should look (maybe they said kings men, but I felt like they meant gentleman as a whole, like every man who wants to look nice should look and dress this way ). It doesn't seem like that conversation took place with the statesman, and I also think their outfits almost make them more

It doesn't seem like that conversation took place with the statesman, and I also think their outfits almost make them more recognizable, which is kind of offensive to Americans (I'm not offended, I'm more like WTF??? The English get to wear that. I want to wear that.) Now I can laugh at myself all day and I've lived in Texas for a year and I know it's just a joke and I'm sure it'll be funny jokes I just kind of figured that all the spies dressed similar. Like in John Wick 2, if Keanu showed up abroad wearing a cowboy outfit then everybody would know who it was for real every body. But I realize that the movie is just playing on tropes of our heroes in film and that was spies In Europe and Cowboys and Indiana Jones over here in America

The Saville Row suits still look incredible, but I think it is just leaning in to any noble archetypes that different cultures have. The Knight or the Cowboy, both have good and bad examples, but we often try to see the romanticized versions of them. The same thing with Samurai in Japan and many other cultures. And as far as cowboys go, these ones look pretty dapper. I can't wait to see it.

As soon as I saw the Statesman HQ (They work in a whiskey distillery,) I figured they'd be a more laid-back version of Kingsman, and I'm seeing that in Bridges and Berry. Channing Tatum looks completely insane in a good way, but maybe he's the exception

It's funny that what comes to mind the first time when I look at that poster is a 50 SHADES OF GREY VS BROKEBACK MOUNTAIN crossover.
