'Kingsman 2': Taron Egerton on How the Ending Impacts Planned Trilogy

14 hours ago | The Hollywood Reporter - Movie News | See recent The Hollywood Reporter - Movie News news »

[Warning: This story contains spoilers from Kingsman: The Golden Circle.]

For Matthew Vaughn's second act to Kingsman: The Secret Service, he ramped up the star power with newcomers Julianne Moore, Channing Tatum, Halle Berry, Jeff Bridges, Pedro Pascal and Elton John. The new additions may have even helped push Kingsman: The Golden Circle to becoming the first film at the box office for its opening weekend. 

While the second film saw several changes, some things remain. Namely, the dynamic duo of leading men Taron Egerton and Colin Firth

For Firth, the action film would be one more added to »

Kingsman: The Golden Circle movie review: deliver us from “edgy”

15 hours ago | | See recent FlickFilosopher news »

MaryAnn’s quick take… Save us from male artists who think they are dangerously, uniquely innovative. This stew of toxic masculinity and CGI-cartoon violence is nothing but tediously mundane. I’m “biast” (pro): love the cast, mostly

I’m “biast” (con): hated the first film

(what is this about? see my critic’s minifesto)

Here’s a phrase I do not recall from Kingsman: The Secret Service: “independent intelligence agency.” This is uttered in Kingsman: The Golden Circle in connection with the American counterpart to Kingsman: Statesman, to which we are introduced here. But what does that mean, precisely? It means they’re mercenary spies, doesn’t it? I have a vague recollection of Secret Service mentioning something about Kingsman being funded by the crown heads of Europe, which at least offers a veneer of governmental authority and fealty to law and order — though of course there »

17 hours ago | TMZ | See recent TMZ news »

[[tmz:video id="0_b9rs4v8b"]] "Narcos" star Pedro Pascal is riding the wave of popularity, yet he says the Netflix show can't go on unless there's a way of protecting cast and crew. We got Pedro -- who plays DEA agent Javier Peña -- out at Lax Sunday and asked about the respected location scout who was murdered in an area near Hidalgo. As we reported ... Carlos Muñoz Portal's body was found earlier this month riddled with bullets. Muñoz »

Kingsman Vs. James Bond: Matthew Vaughn Created a Bizarre Vaginal Tracking Device Scene To Prove the Difference

22 September 2017 10:49 AM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

The “Kingsman” sequel, much like the original, sits at a nexus. They are proper gentlemen who champion old-world traditions; they are also elite undercover agents who utilize futuristic technology, using not-so-subtle CGI. However, there’s one sequence that breaks from this old world-meets-new schtick, and it stands out as stunningly crude as it is rudimentary — and so narratively forced it ties the feather-light plot into a pretzel.

Halfway through “Kingsman: The Golden Circle,” the Kingsmen’s American cousins — the Statesmen — boast enough technology to literally heal a bullet to the brain. But when our heroes Eggsy (Taron Egerton) and Whiskey (Pedro Pascal) need to complete the relatively simple task of putting a tracking device on the villain’s girlfriend, they are forced to rely on a latex finger condom.

Julianne Moore Is the Real Reason ‘Kingsman: The Golden Circle’ Is Worth Seeing

22 September 2017 10:27 AM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

You probably want to go see “Kingsman: The Golden Circle” because you enjoyed the 2014 original, but there’s only one reason why you should actually go spend upwards of $12 to watch the sequel, and her name is Julianne Moore. Sure, Matthew Vaughn’s action scenes remain dazzlingly choreographed and new cast members Halle Berry, Pedro Pascal, and Channing Tatum are welcome additions, but Moore owns the entire movie as a scene-chewing sociopath. Sorry, Colin Firth.

The Oscar winner embraces her dark side as Poppy Adams, a global entrepreneur who wants to legalize the drug trade so that her multimillion dollar empire can operate freely in the United States. Poppy has a fetish for 1950s Americana kitsch, and Moore basically plays her as if her housewife from “Far From Heaven” were a diabolical and demonic James Bond villain — think Martha Stewart with horns. Poppy is sweet, squeaky-clean, and maternal, but she »

Film Review: ‘Kingsman: The Golden Circle’ is High-Flying Spy Fun

22 September 2017 7:48 AM, PDT | | See recent news »

Chicago – “Kingsman: The Golden Circle” is a hard “R”-rated sequel with a thoroughly juvenile soul. It pairs silly wordplay, dirty jokes and a startling amount of bloody and gratuitous violence while its tongue remains thoroughly in cheek. This is a James Bond movie as made by an unusually sadistic 16-year-old under the influence of some not entirely legal substances.

Rating: 3.5/5.0

Once upon a time the Coen brothers wood chipper scene in “Fargo” and the brains-in- the-backseat-scene in “Pulp Fiction” tested the limits of acceptability and bad taste, but that seems downright tame compared to all the slicing and dicing in this film. In one instance, there’s a magic lasso which is capable of slicing people in half. Additionally, there are not one, but two scenes of people being fed into meat grinders. They’re both so bonkers they’re actually played for sick laughs.

Review: ‘Kingsman: The Golden Circle’ Represents the Worst of Matthew Vaughn’s Sensibilities

22 September 2017 4:06 AM, PDT | The Film Stage | See recent The Film Stage news »

From approximately minute three, Kingsman: The Golden Circle bolts out of the gate, relentlessly so. Things pick right up on Eggsy (an ever-boring Taron Egerton) as he emerges from the namesake tailor shop in his Sunday best, only to be confronted by ex-Kingsman hopeful Charlie (Edward Holcroft). Before even having a beat to remember who the hell Charlie is, he’s thrust upon viewers — sporting a cartoonish robotic arm — in a taxi chase scene that’s shot so abrasively it reminds you immediately of the proper action directing this franchise lacks. This sequence, among others that follow, is driven by the sheer teenage, video game junkie sensibility that seems inherent in the worse half of Matthew Vaughn’s filmography. At the very least, by throwing it at you from Jump Street, Vaughn has the decency to prepare you for the loud and plastic bullshit he and co-scribe Jane Goldman will »

Kingsman: The Golden Circle – Review

21 September 2017 7:43 PM, PDT | | See recent news »

Everything seems to be on track for cinema’s final months of the year. Sure, that demented clown ruled the box office for a couple of weeks, but Ben and Jake are here now with some real “Oscar bait” flicks that will usher in the season of serious film works. Hmm, not so fast. Looks like another comics-inspired franchise is blasting into the multiplex. Now, the Jla and Thor are still many weeks away, but this series is more Bond and Bourne than Marvel and DC. Oh, and it’s from graphic novel/ movie adapter veteran Matthew Vaughn. He injected most welcomed energy to the Marvel mutants with X-men: First Class in 2011, just a year after spicing up that genre with the R-rated Kick-ass. His follow-up in 2014 was the “origin/training” tale of a super-secret (“veddy veddy” hush-hush, you know) organization whose operatives are impeccably dressed, well-mannered gentlemen (think TV’s John Steed… »

Channing Tatum Played a Hilarious 'Sex Doll' Prank on Kingsman Costar Taron Egerton, Actor Reveals

21 September 2017 12:45 PM, PDT | | See recent news »

On-set pranks come in two kinds: silly or hilariously over-the-top.

Taron Egerton, star of Kingsman: The Golden Circle, recently experienced the latter via his costar Channing Tatum. Though to be fair, Egerton, 27, instigated it.

“I put a mannequin in his trailer bed with a wig on it and some empty wine bottles and a pair of high heels on the floor,” Egerton reveals to People. “And he came in one morning and thought there was a person in there and was quite freaked out.”

Tatum, 37, did not get mad of course — he got even.

Box-Office Preview: 'Kingsman 2' to Lord Over 'Lego Ninjago,' 'It'

21 September 2017 6:40 AM, PDT | The Hollywood Reporter - Movie News | See recent The Hollywood Reporter - Movie News news »

Matthew Vaughn's Kingsman: The Golden Circle should have no trouble dethroning horror sensation It in its box-office debut this weekend, or lording over fellow new entry The Lego Ninjago Movie.

Tracking suggests the cheeky action-comedy from 20th Century Fox will debut in the $40 million-$45 million range, ahead of the $36.2 million domestic bow of Kingsman: The Secret Service in February 2015. A sleeper hit, the first Kingsman went on to earn $414.4 million globally.

‘Kingsman: The Golden Circle’ review: Everything a sequel needs, plus a superb woman villain

21 September 2017 5:10 AM, PDT | The News Minute | See recent The News Minute news »

Before watching Kingsman: The Golden Circle, it pays to be prepared for star power like no other. And yet Halle Berry, Julianne Moore, Channing Tatum, Pedro Pascal (of Game of Thrones and Narcos fame), Elton John (playing himself!) and Jeff Bridges are merely the supporting cast of the film.

Make no mistake: the second instalment of Kingsman is still all Eggsy (played by Taron Egerton) and Harry Hart (the indomitable Colin Firth) taking names and kicking ass in suits, and doing it in only the most English way possible — the accent included. »

'Kingsman: The Golden Circle' Review: It's 'James Bond on Laughing Gas,' Violent as Ever

20 September 2017 4:59 AM, PDT | | See recent Rolling Stone news »

Whooshing by on screen like James Bond on laughing gas, Kingsman: The Golden Circle is a breathlessly comic, sometimes exhausting sequel to the surprise 2015 smash that all but begged for an R-rated follow-up. Now it's here – and just as manic and over-the-top as you'd expect, only more so (the film is 141 minutes long). Those who hated the first film will be twice as irritated. Screw 'em. True Kingsman fans will appreciate that director Matthew Vaughn reacted to digs at The Secret Service for being gratuitously violent, sexually adolescent and politically »
