Part of what makes the Kingsman so wonderful is that it is a side step in the spy genre that decided to take a dark and gritty turn. With the Bourne and James Bond franchises pretty much ruling the spy genre with their shaky cams and monochromatic tones, films like Spy and Kingsman give the genre a much-needed laugh. And the man who, in part, inspired the film adaptations of the Kingsman comic book is artist Dave Gibbons, who is best known for his collaborations with Alan Moore on Watchman, as well as their Superman story “For the Man Who Has Everything.”
With the sequel Kingsman: The Golden Circle hitting theaters this weekend, we had a chance to speak to Mr. Gibbons about franchise and why he decided to work with co-creator Mark Millar to bring the idea to life. Check out what he had to say here below.
20th Century Fox has released a new trailer for Kingsman: The Golden Circle, the sequel to 2014’s Kingsman: The Secret Service.
Starring in the sequel is Taron Egerton, Colin Firth, Julianne Moore, Mark Strong, Halle Berry, Elton John, Channing Tatum, Jeff Bridges, and Pedro Pascal. X-Men: First Class, Kick-Ass, and Stardust director Matthew Vaughn returns for the new installment, from a screenplay he penned along with Jane Goldman (X-Men: Days of Future Past, Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children).

Last week we saw a high-speed first look tease for the sequel to Kingsman: The Secret Service, titled Kingsman: The Golden Circle. Though no information was given on when we might see a real trailer, it was assumed that one was coming soon.
These assumptions were correct, as 20th Century Fox has released the first official trailer for the movie. This time around, the Kingsman group finds themselves joining forces with an ally spy organization in America called Statesman.
Continue below for more information on The Golden Circle and to check out the trailer.
20th Century Fox has released a high-speed first look teaser for Kingsman: The Golden Circle, the sequel to the surprise 2014 hit Kingsman: The Secret Service.
Like any trailer teaser the video is very short, running only 15 seconds long. Unlike most trailer teasers, however, this one presents the footage in rapid-fire, subliminal message-like flashes. There’s also no mention of when we’ll see an actual trailer, interestingly enough, which is usually the whole point of a trailer tease. Though to be fair, the video is dubbed “The Ultimate Breakdown,” and makes no promises of a trailer. Still, it’s safe to assume one is coming soon.
You can find the first Kingsman: The Golden Circle teaser below.
The gleefully violent, vulgar, and witty spy spoof Kingsman: The Secret Service, based on the comic series The Secret Service created by Mark Millar and Dave Gibbons, was destined to get a sequel after grossing $414 million at the global box office last year. Luckily for us fans of the film, writer-director Matthew Vaughn (Kick-Ass, X-Men: First Class), his writing partner Jane Goldman (Stardust, Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children), and newcomer leading man Taron Egerton (Eddie the Eagle, Legend) will all be returning for the sequel, which is now going by the name Kingsman: The Golden Circle.
It now appears as if a Hollywood heavy-hitter is preparing to join the colorful, globe-trotting mayhem as 21 Jump Street and Magic Mike star Channing Tatum has signed on to play an unspecified role.
