A brand new international promo poster for Kingsman: The Golden Circle has been released. The sequel to Kingsman: The Secret Service brings Eggsy (Taron Egerton) back in the field, but this time, in a bit more dire situation as the British underground organization that he belongs to is attacked by a secretive new world group dubbed The Golden Circle. With his back against the wall, he crosses the pond to America to seek help from their Stateside counterparts known as the Statesman.
With less than a month before its release, Warner Bros. is ramping up its marketing campaign for The Golden Circle. Following a full panel during last month's San Diego Comic-Con, which also saw the debut of a new full trailer, several TV spots and publicity materials have been rolled out. Just earlier this week, they cleverly made a huge promo stunt tied to the Total Solar Eclipse -- supposedly passing it not as a natural phenomenon but a man-made event that was part of the promotional activities for the sequel. This new poster may not be as innovative as that, but it offers fans a closer look at the movie's most important characters.
Courtesy of Comingsoon, the new promo poster assembles The Golden Circle's biggest game players. Statesmen leader, Champ (Jeff Bridges) and members, Tequila (Channing Tatum), Jack Daniels (Pedro Pascal) and Ginger Ale (Halle Berry) join Eggsy and Harry (Colin Firth). Poppy (Julianne Moore), on the other hand, strikes a pose on her own. Check the artwork below:
The narrative may sound a little straightforward for a spy-thriller, but The Golden Circle has some bonus subplots that spin its story differently. The mysterious resurrection of Harry Hart is just one. Further, the kooky antagonist that is businesswoman Poppy continues the franchise's tradition of utilizing charming but evil villains in the same thread as Richmond Valentine (Samuel L. Jackson) from the first movie. If anything, based on the promo footage, it appears the film has even more over-the-top action set pieces than The Secret Service had.
Aside from its predecessor's success, Kingsman: The Golden Circle is also garnering a lot of hype, as it is director Matthew Vaughn's first sequel project. The filmmaker is known for passing up follow-up films in a franchise, so hopefully this sequel is proves special.
