The first official trailer for Kingsman: The Golden Circle has finally arrived, giving us our first look at the return of Eggsy and his well-dressed action hijinks. Come inside to check it out!
Kingsman: The Secret Service completely took me (and a bunch of other people) by surprise when it arrived in 2014. It brought together a crazy story, cool ideas, and interesting characters into an over-the-top thrillride. As such, I've been anxious to see what The Secret Circle would bring, and today we've got our wish with the first trailer for the sequel:
Sure, there's not much in terms of plot, but considering it's more of a teaser to reacquaint you to the surviving characters (a Bunch of people died in the first film), and introduce you to the new ones.

Catherine Hardwicke: Tiff/YouTube
Fantasy fans, rejoice. Maggie Stiefvater’s best-selling four-book series “The Raven Cycle” is being adapted for TV, and Catherine Hardwicke has signed on to helm the pilot and serve as an executive producer, Birth.Movies.Death. reports.
According to Publishers Marketplace, the story follows “four private school boys and a psychic’s daughter who quest for a sleeping king of Welsh legend in the mountains of Virginia, uncovering ancient magic, powerful dreams, and the devils in themselves.” The first installment of “The Raven Cycle” was published in 2012, and the final book hit shelves in 2016.
Another upcoming adaptation of a woman-penned fantasy novel we’re keeping an eye on is “Maresi.” The award-winning Ya title was written by Finnish author Maria Turtschaninoff, and the film rights to the book have been optioned by Film4, the London-based company behind Andrea Arnold’s “American Honey.”
“Miss You Already,” “Twilight,” and “Thirteen” are among Hardwicke’s credits. She helmed the music video for “Til It Happens to You,” the Oscar-nominated Lady Gaga and Diane Warren song featured in 2015 documentary “The Hunting Ground.” The film investigates the ubiquity of sexual assault on U.S. campuses and the rape culture within those institutions that denies survivors justice.
“The Raven Cycle” Gets Pilot Order, Catherine Hardwicke to Direct was originally published in Women and Hollywood on Medium, where people are continuing the conversation by highlighting and responding to this story. »
