Fox's spy sequel The Kingsman: Golden Circle debuted to a strong $40.3 million at the Chinese box office over the weekend.
That's a sizable improvement over the $22.5 million opening its predecessor, The Kingsman: The Secret Service, made in the Middle Kingdom in 2015.
The cheeky action-comedy, again directed by British filmmaker Matthew Vaughn, dominated screen shares while also earning $3.5 million on Imax. Worldwide, Golden Circle has brought in $250.3 million from 61 markets.
Viewer reviews in China are mostly positive — the film holds an average score of 7.3 on Douban and 8.4 on Maoyan — suggesting a »

Update, Writethru: Two weeks before Thor: Ragnarok comes hammering into China, Kingsman: The Golden Circle suited up in the Middle Kingdom on Friday, bowing to a stylish $40.3M. In a total 61 markets this frame, the Fox/Marv Films title added $48.7M, thrusting it back to the top spot on the international box office chart. The Matthew Vaughn-helmed sequel now has an offshore cume of $250.3M, 34% bigger than Kingsman: The Secret Service in the same group of markets and at… »
Spy spoof “Kingsman: The Golden Circle” has led the international box office with $48.7 million this weekend — most of that coming from an impressive $40.3 million launch in China.
Fox’s sequel to 2015’s “Kingsman: The Secret Service” is playing in 62 markets abroad and has now topped $250 million worldwide, including $35 million in South Korea and $30 million in the U.K. The original grossed $286 million two years ago in overseas markets.
The action comedy was directed by Matthew Vaughn and stars Colin Firth, Julianne Moore, and Taron Egerton. In China, the opening weekend led that market and was 73% ahead of “Kingsman: The Secret Service.”
With $95 million in the U.S. after five weeks, “Kingsman: The Golden Circle” is nearing $350 million worldwide. The original wound up with a worldwide total of $415 million.
Warner Bros. “Geostorm,” starring Gerard Butler, is finishing in second place with $36.4 million at 13,000 screens with first-place finishes in 36 territories to lift its international total to $49 million. South Korea was »

As expected, Tyler Perry's Boo 2! A Madea Halloween topped the weekend box office becoming the seventh of eight Madea films to open over $20 million. Meanwhile, it was rough going for the weekend's four other new wide releases as Geostorm, Only the Brave and The Snowman essentially bombed while Pure Flix's Same Kind of Different as Me failed to meet the low end of expectations after strong group sales on opening day. Overall, the top twelve generated just $81.3 million, over $30 million less than the same weekend last year as October is currently pacing ~13% behind last year. With an estimated $21.65 million, Boo 2! finished atop the weekend box office while falling nearly $7 million short of the original's opening one year ago. The film did receive an "A-" CinemaScore from opening day audiences, just a notch below the original Boo!'s "A" and it will be interesting to see what kind of run Boo 2! can leg out. »

“A philosopher once asked, 'Are we human because we gaze at the stars, or do we gaze at them because we are human?' Pointless, really. Do the stars gaze back? Now, that's a question.”
Comic book movies are Matthew Vaughn's speciality. Between Kick-Ass, X-Men: First Class and the Kingsman franchise, he's been a constant and eclectic presence as these films have boomed, and if reports are to be believed, his next film could be about either Flash Gordon or Superman.
But going back even further than Mark Millar or Marvel, Vaughn's first comic book movie was his adaptation of Neil Gaiman's Stardust, which arrived in UK cinemas ten years ago this week. Before it was published as a novel in 1999, Gaiman conceived the postmodern fairy tale as a 'prestige' comic; the four-issue mini-series »
‘Kingsman: The Golden Circle‘ is an interesting film. Not only is it Director Matthew Vaughn‘s first sequel to his own work, but it is also perhaps the least Vaughn-esque of his entire filmography, structurally speaking. If you look back on Vaughn’s movies, you’ll notice a structural through line that connects all of Vaughn’s and co-screenwriter/frequent collaborator Jane Goldman‘s scripts. “Stardust“, “Kick-Ass“, “X-Men: First Class“, and “Kingsman: The Secret Service” all share what is essentially a very refined version of The Monomyth, a.k.a. “The Hero’s Journey” told through Vaughn’s dynamic filmmaking style. If you hold films of his like “Kick-Ass” and “The Secret Service” next to each other, you begin to notice that Vaughn has essentially made the same film for the last few years, although each individual entry becomes augmented through the genre in which each story is being told. »

“Transformers: The Last Knight,” from Paramount Home Media Distribution, debuted at No. 1 on both national home video sales charts the week ended Sept. 30.
But Warner’s “Wonder Woman” movie, although bumped down to the No. 2 spot, remained in high demand, selling 87% as many units as the latest “Transformers” film in its second week of release.
The No. 3 spot on Npd VideoScan’s overall disc sales chart, which tracks combined DVD and Blu-ray Disc sales, went to Lionsgate’s “47 Meters Down,” the latest in a series of shark-attack thrillers. The film made more than $44 million in U.S. theaters.
Universal Pictures’ “The Mummy” slipped to No. 4 on both charts its third week in stores, while the No. 5 spot »

Thanksgiving is all about family and togetherness, and of course food. But let’s be honest, sometimes you get to a point in the holiday where you need a little break. Maybe your mom or your aunt has started asking that dreaded “when are you going to settle down/get married/have kids” question, or you just can’t listen to your Dad and crazy Uncle Bruce debate over their different political opinions or sports team loyalties any more.
There’s no better escape than a Cineplex theatre, where you can get away from your family for a short but refreshing time and enjoy someone else’s drama! Here are our recommendations for movies to see this long weekend:

Declining a relatively slim 32% in its second frame, Kingsman: The Golden Circle added another £4.19m at the weekend in the UK for a 12-day tally of £15.6m. That compares with £8.25m for predecessor Kingsman: The Secret Service after two weekends of play. The original Kingsman film went on to achieve a lifetime total of £16.6m in the UK, so The Golden Circle is only £1m behind it. Director Matthew Vaughn’s Kick-Ass maxed out at £11.8m, Stardust at £15.0m, and X-Men: First Class at £15.1m, so The Golden Circle is a dead cert to become his biggest ever UK hit. (The Golden Circle is also ahead of films that Vaughn produced but didn’t direct such as Snatched and Lock, Stock and Two Smoking Barrels.)

“Kingsman: The Golden Circle” debuted on top of the South Korean box office. Opening on Wednesday (Sep. 27), the Fox release earned $16.5 million from 2.35 million admissions over five days. Accounting for 65% of the total weekend box office, the film set multiple new records, including best opening for an R-rated title.
With a $46.9 million total, Korea was the third biggest territory for “Kingsman: The Secret Service” behind North America and China.
Last week’s winner, “I Can Speak” slipped to second. The local drama earned $3.83 million from 549,400 admissions between Friday and Sunday for a total of $11.1 million after two weekends on release. Dropping to fourth, Showbox’s “Memoir of a Murderer” earned $513,200 for a four-weekend total of $18.4 million.
As the 10-day Chuseok holiday began, children’s movies enjoyed strong debuts. Opening on Wednesday and Thursday, respectively, “Yo-Kai Watch Movie 3” and “The Lego Ninjago Movie“ landed in third and fifth. “Yo-Kai Watch” earned $600,000 in five days, while »

One of the biggest surprises at the 2015 box office was just how good Kingsman: The Secret Service was. Sure, it was directed by Matthew Vaugh – already lauded as one of this generation’s best action directors – and written by Jane Goldman – who had previous teamed-up with Vaughn to pen the scripts for Kickass, X-Men: First Class and Stardust – but that was all that the movie seemingly had going for it ahead of release. It was released in the cinematic dead zone of February, opposite of Fifty Shades of Grey, which it was clearly counter-programming against. Its

Warner’s “Wonder Woman” movie, fresh off an enormously successful summer theatrical run, easily debuted at No. 1 on both national home video sales charts the week ended Sept. 23, bumping Universal Pictures’ “The Mummy” to No. 2.
“Wonder Woman,” which with a domestic box office take of more than $412 million is the year’s No. 2 movie (behind Walt Disney’s live-action “Beauty and the Beast”), snagged the No. 1 spot on both the Npd VideoScan overall disc sales chart, which tracks combined DVD and Blu-ray Disc sales, and the dedicated Blu-ray Disc sales chart.
“The Mummy,” which had debuted at No. 1 the prior week, fell to second with total unit sales amounting to just 13.5% of “Wonder Woman” sales, according to Npd research.
DreamWorks Animation’s “Captain Underpants: The First Epic Movie,” based on the Dav Pilkey comic books aimed at pre-teen boys, slipped to No. 3 on the overall chart and No. 4 on the Blu-ray Disc chart. The »

Kingsman: The Secret Service was such a breath of fresh air when it came out. It was an action comedy that didn’t decide it could skip out on the action choreography part. Matthew Vaughn made a movie that was all the way both things. It was honestly a bit shocking to experience after so many Austin Powers movies where not giving a damn was basically part of the fabric of the movie. Obviously there’s no element of surprise with Kingsman: The Golden Circle but the formula is still solidly there. This is an action comedy that wants to have it both ways and while it’s perhaps a little worse on both ends there’s a solid movie in here anyway.

There are dozens upon dozens upon dozens upon dozens of new movies coming out this fall (here are 35 that we're particularly excited for) and oodles of awards season-worthy performances within them. But we've whittled that all down to these nine (9!) stars who we're pretty dang confident will break out and who you'll be hearing much more about for many years to come. So, you might as well get to know them now.
Age: 14 (except Lillis, who is 15) Where You've Seen Them: Lieberher co-starred with Bill Murray in the feel-good dramedy St. Vincent; Oleff played Young Peter Quill in both volumes of Marvel's Guardians of the Galaxy franchise; and, of course, Wolfhard plays Mike Wheeler on Netflix's hit series Stranger Things.
Back in 2014 when Matthew Vaughn was adapting lesser-known material for the screen, in the comic series by Mark Millar and Dave Gibbons, expectations were not exactly sky high. Few really knew what to expect from Kingsman: The Secret Service but even fewer expected the film to be the success it was. Blending a stylish cinematic aesthetic with Brosnan era techno thrills and Moore era comedy, Kingsman boasted crazily inventive action scenes, charismatic comedy that nailed the right balance of homage and parody and featured some enthused performances by a cast fully committed to the spy caper chaos. Naturally, a sequel was guaranteed but as we all know, following up a sleeper hit or big screen novelty can be a difficult task (see: Monsters: The Dark Continent, Piranha 3Dd, Now You See Me 2 and Bad Santa 2). So, has Kingsman: The Golden Circle managed it?
Well, no, it hasn’t »

While I acknowledge and appreciate that it had many fans, and I’m very happy for them, I absolutely loathed the original “Kingsman: The Secret Service.” I love the spy actioner genre, loved the idea of Colin Firth in an action role, enjoy Taron Egerton very much as a performer, and yet every minute of “Kingsman” was a garish, plastic-action-sequenced, mean-spirited, fundamentally gross 90s men’s magazine come to life.

We all had our heads blown up when we first first saw the spy action comedy The Kingsman: The Secret Service. It was a fresh fun take on the spy genre that turned the campiness of it's inspiration into something new and original. So in honor of its sequel, The Kingsman: The Golden Circle coming to cinemas, let's revisit its predecessor. Filled with breath taking fight scenes and humor, this film was a surprise hit with critics, fanboys and the box-office. Director Matthew... Read More »

Top 5 Reasons to See Kingsman: The Golden CircleTop 5 Reasons to See Kingsman: The Golden CircleJenny Bullough9/26/2017 10:01:00 Am
We have to admit, we were always going to see this long-awaited sequel. The first movie, Kingsman: The Secret Service, took us completely by surprise on its release by making the spy genre fun to watch again. No wonder it was a hit with critics and audiences! To be clear, we also have a lot of love for the Bourne and Bond franchises and their grittier, more realistic style; but the Kingsman franchise is doing something different, giving us plenty of ridiculous action set pieces underscored with a huge amount of heart.
Fans of the first movie will be pleased to know that the sequel truly delivers, keeping all the elements that made Kingsman: The Secret Service a fun thrill ride, and adding enough new characters and twists to freshen things up. »
