Later this year, fans are finally going to see the second installment of Matthew Vaughn’s spy comedy franchise, Kingsman. The first film debuted back in 2014 to rave reviews, and the folks behind the comic book adaptation have been hard at work on a sequel. In September, the second film will make its debut, but fans are still being kept in the dark about the film’s finer details. Except, now, it looks like one of the sequel’s stars is giving fans just a small taste of what the action-packed romp will consist of.
And, you guessed it! Kingsman: The Golden Circle is going to have its fun with politics.
“Though I have to be pretty careful what I say - Matthew can say what he wants, it’s his film. I think it very much is political. I think I can say there’s a 'presidential' thread that runs through the new film,” he said.
“I think that, each time, whenever there’s a new global threat that arises in the world of Kingsman, it will be something that may have genuine relevance. In the first one, I guess we could say it’s over population, and in this one, it’s a similarly pertinent global theme.”
Continuing, Egerton finished by saying, “I think you’re right. It’s a warped, distorted presentation of politics, but I think the themes are definitely there.”
In the past, Egerton has shared a few key words to help describe the much-anticipated sequel. Speaking to CinemaBlend, the actor said the second film would be “bigger, badder, [and have] more guns.”
Kingsman: The Golden Circle is directed by Matthew Vaughn with Dave Gibbons, Jane Goldman, and Mark Millar on writing duties. The film stars Taron Egerton (Gary ‘Eggsy’ Unwin), Julianne Moore (Poppy), Colin Firth (Harry Hart), Jeff Bridges, Channing Tatum, Pedro Pascal (Jack Daniels), Mark Strong (Merlin), Halley Berry (Ginger), Vinnie Jones, and Sophie Cookson (Roxy).
