After a ‘blink-and-you’ll-miss-it’ teaser was released last week by Taron Egerton over on Twitter, Kingsman fans have been waiting for the trailer for the highly anticipated sequel to Matthew Vaughn’s brilliant and hilarious ‘Kingsman: The Secret Service’, which was released in 2014.
Then yesterday another teaser hit the web, this time it was to announce the trailer! (Yes, an announcement trailer for a trailer) We got a quick look at Eggsy (Taron Egerton), Agent Tequila (Channing Tatum), and Ginger (Halle Berry), and a shot of what looks like Kingsman HQ being blown to smithereens!
The trailer debuted on the Conan show overnight and now it’s here!
The trailer doesn’t show much that we didn’t already know from the synopsis. Kingsman HQ is destroyed and Eggsy meets the US equivalent of the Kingsman, named the Statesman. It looks like thinks don’t get off to a good start as Agent Tequila wrangles with Eggsy and Merlin. We also get our first look at Harry, who we thought had died in the first ‘Kingsman’, but now he’s donning an eye patch and looks ready to kick some more ass. This sequel looks like it’s taken everyone thing I loved about the first one and dialled it all the way up to 100! I’m excited to see how Vaughn has tried to top himself with this one.
“When their headquarters are destroyed and the world is held hostage, their journey leads them to the discovery of an allied spy organization in the US called Statesman, dating back to the day they were both founded. In a new adventure that tests their agents’ strength and wits to the limit, these two elite secret organizations band together to defeat a ruthless common enemy, in order to save the world, something that’s becoming a bit of a habit for Eggsy…”
