San Diego Comic Con kicks off today in Southern California, and we're sure to get a glut of new news and trailers over the next four days. First out of the gate, 20th Century Fox has dropped a brand spanking new trailer for Kingsman: The Golden Circle, which is great news for moviegoers because if you've seen any movies this summer, I guarantee that first trailer was attached to it. Seriously, I've got that thing memorized at this point.
We finally get more of the plot in this new trailer where Taron Egerton's Eggsy finds himself one of the last remaining Kingsman following an attack on the organization by Julianne Moore's villainess. He teams up with the American version of the organization, The Statesman, represented by Channing Tatum and good old Jeff Bridges. Halle Berry's on board this time around as well, portraying the American counterpart to Mark Strong's Merlin, and of course Colin Firth's Harry Hart is back despite getting shot in the head in the first film. I guess they're waiting for us to pay for a ticket to explain how and why he's back.
I must admit, I'm excited to see what director Matthew Vaughn will do this time around. He's infamous for kicking off franchises and then abandoning them after one film, so seeing what he'll do with the longer leash of a sequel has me intrigued. The action sequences do look pretty fantastic, and I'm not sick of this trailer yet, so all in all, it's looking pretty good right now. Kingsman: The Golden Circle hits theaters on September 22.
