Posted 2017/09/06 0 0

The co-writer of Kingsman: The Golden Circle says the film will be packed with surprises, both emotional and physical ones.


With Kingsman: The Golden Circle hitting theaters later this month, the marketing for the movie has begun to ramp up considerably. In an interview to promote the flick, co-writer Jane Goldman spoke with Den of Geek about how the creatives approached the story, and what makes it distinctive from the 2014 authentic. Based on Goldman, the sequel will go “unpredictable emotional directions,” and that is what she believes makes it so thrilling.

“I think the challenge is just wanting to do more of the same, but wanting to keep what made Kingsman feel fresh and interesting. Kingsman can, with its history, surprising and consistently go in directions you didn’t expect, both in terms of the characters’ emotional journeys and in terms of the kind of outrageous, absurd, or surprising kind of action that you see.”

As marketing has continued for the film, it’s been clear that the sequel will be both outrageous and absurd. And it certainly won’t want for inventive fight scenes. Goldman went on to discuss how she and Matthew Vaughn tried to elevate the winning elements of the original Kingsman:

“The main thing is we want to continue to be unpredictable. So the story goes through some very unpredictable emotional directions, and also you have the moments of absurdity that I hope will leave audiences surprised and delighted. It’s more outrageous than the first one, but it’s certainly not about ‘Oh, we have to be more gory, or more intense.’ There are some amazing action sequences that hopefully they’ll be surprising in ways audiences weren’t expecting to be surprised.”

As for whether there is already talk of a third movie, if The Golden Circle does as well as its predecessor, Goldman remarks, “There's definitely conversation, certainly nothing written in stone, but lots of ideas have been talked about. So yeah, I would not be surprised if a third one happens.”

The Kingsman sequel additionally stars Mark Sturdy as Merlin, Julianne Moore because the nefarious villain Poppy, Jeff Bridges as Agent Champagne, Pedro Pascal as Agent Whiskey, Channing Tatum as Agent Tequila, Sophie Cookson as Roxy, Halle Berry as Ginger, Poppy Delevingne as Clara Von Gluckfberg, and Hanna Alström as Princess Tilde. Here is the complete synopsis for the movie: “When their headquarters are destroyed and the world is held hostage, the Kingsman’s journey leads them to the discovery of an allied spy organization in the US. These two elite secret organizations must band together to defeat a common enemy.”

Kingsman: The Golden Circle is ready for launch on September 22.
