Kingsman: The Golden Circle Release Date Gets Pushed Back

With the recent announcment of the Alien: Covenant release date being pushed up to May 19, 2017, Fox also moved Kingsman: The Golden Circle back a few months to October 6, 2017.

Kingsman: The Golden Circle was originally slated for release as a summer blockbuster on June 16, 2017.

This doesn't necessarily mean that there are any issues with the film itself, just that Fox Studios is positioning itself for big box office numbers depending on what other films are opening that same day.

In Kingsman: The Golden Circle Eggsy, Merlin and Roxy head to the United States to join forces with Statesman, their US counterpart, after the Kingsman HQ is destroyed by Poppy, an evil American mastermind.

The film is being directed by Matthew Vaughn, based on a script he co-wrote with Jane Goldman. Returning cast members include Taron Egerton, Mark Strong, Sophie Cookson, Colin Firth and Edward Holcroft. The new additions to the cast include Channing Tatum, Elton John, Pedro Pascal, Halle Berry, Julianne Moore and Jeff Bridges.

Kingsman: The Golden Circle is loosely based on the 2012 comic book series The Secret Service from Mark Millar and Dave Gibbons.

The new release date is now October 6, 2017.
