A new photo has been released that showcases all of the principle cast members in the upcoming Kingsman: The Golden Circle. When Kingsman: The Secret Service released back in 2015, it became a fairly big hit with both critics and fans, grossing over $400 million worldwide at the box office. Naturally, this led to Fox quickly pushing a sequel through production with original director Matthew Vaughn again on board and the title Kingsman: The Golden Circle. While Vaughn brought most of the cast from the original film back (including Colin Firth’s character Harry, who was presumed dead after the first film), he’s taken things to the next level by making sure the sequel is a star-studded affair.
Kingsman: The Golden Circle will focus more on the American counterparts to the Kingsman – called Statesman – as main character Eggsy (Taron Egerton) and company travel to the United States after their headquarters are destroyed. Of course, this means that Vaughn saw fit to cast American actors to take up the role of Statesman agents, including veterans like Jeff Bridges, Halle Berry and Channing Tatum. While fans have been treated to in depth looks at newer and returning characters alike (including some awesome character posters), the newest photo released brings them all together in one shot.
Via People, the principle cast members for Kingsman: The Golden Circle gathered together for a group photo. The photo combines new and old cast members alike, including Firth, Berry and even Julianne Moore (who’s set to play the villain Poppy and associated with the group known as the Golden Circle). If that’s not enough, legendary musician Elton John also makes an appearance. You can take a look at the star-studded photo below:
Kingsman: The Golden Circle definitely has one of the most capable casts assembled in recent memory and if Vaughn’s sequel delivers more of the stylish action and great performances that the first film provided, fans could certainly be in for an entertaining and thrilling time at the theater. With Vaughn’s track record of making films that are generally well received (plus the entertaining trailers and TV spots released so far), it seems more and more likely that the director will, in fact, deliver a quality product.
Still, while Kingsman: The Secret Service was positively received, there were some fans who found the use of violence to be a tad over-the-top (some critics even expressed similar complaints). This was especially true of a particularly violent scene set in a church. Based on Red Band trailers released for Kingsman: The Golden Circle, however, Vaughn and company looks to bring more of that same bloody violence to the sequel. How that works out in the end remains to be seen, but at least the cast will be top-notch.
