The Kingsman 2 Footage We Saw Was Absolutely Crazy
20th Century Fox screened the first (roughly) thirty minutes from Kingsman: The Golden Circle for the press in advance of their Thursday presentation at San Diego Comic-Con, and it was as crazy fun as you might hope and expect.
Be advised that Fox has asked the press to not spoil the footage (although it must be noted that the first trailer already gave away some of the most shocking events as well as the return of a few characters believed dead by the end of the original movie).
The movie, once again directed by Matthew Vaughn, jumps into the action right from the get-go. As Eggsy exits the KIngsman tailor shop on Saville Row, he is confronted by a figure from his past: Charlie Hesketh, the Kingsman reject-turned-bad guy who Eggsy believed had been killed at the end of the first movie. As seen in the first trailer, Charlie is actually alive, but he’s been transformed. He has a rougher look now, as well as a Winter Soldier/Inspector Gadget-like mechanical arm.
