Kingsman: The Golden Circle pushed forward from October to September
Things have been pretty quiet on the KINGSMAN front, with no new teasers or trailers hyping people up for the Matthew Vaughn sequel that was a mere 7 months away. Looks like 20th Century Fox is still ironing out their marketing plan and a part of that may include a shift in the release date schedule. Exhibitor Relations sent out the following Tweet, stating that Fox is bumping up the release date one week, which would put KINGSMAN: THE GOLDEN CIRCLE in September instead of October.

While a single week may not seem like it would make much of a difference, this ensures that the film won't be going up against the highly-anticipated BLADE RUNNER 2049. Fox hasn't issued anything else yet, so we'll just have to sit tight and see how the first trailer fares whenever they decide to send one out. In the meantime, here's hoping THE GOLDEN CIRCLE can deliver what everyone enjoyed so much about the first film!
KINGSMAN: THE GOLDEN CIRCLE will open in theaters on September 29, 2017.
