Should you take your kids to see the R-rated, hyperviolent, and sex- and drug-powered Kingsman: The Golden Circle? »

Matthew Vaughn’s 2014 action film Kingsman: The Secret Service was mostly a blast, and despite a few rough patches (the slaughter at the church, the sex-reward from the princess), it was a nice spin on the spy genre. Vaughn basically made his own version of Bond, and played up the sillier aspects while still making us invested in the hardscrabble protagonist, Eggsy (Taron Egerton). Since spies always have work to do, a sequel seemed like a promising idea, but sadly, Kingsman: The Golden Circle plays like a last-ditch attempt to do everything, and it does very little … »

The second Kingsman film sees the dapper British secret agents go up against American supervillain Poppy Adams, played by Julianne Moore, with the help of Statesman, their Us equivalent. Kingsman: The Golden Circle is out now in the UK, and is released on 21 September in Australia and 22 September in the Us.

For a character that has ostensibly been retired from the X-Men universe – for now, at least – Wolverine has been gaining an awful lot of traction over the past few days.
On Tuesday, for instance, Matthew Vaughn (Kingsman: The Golden Circle) spilled details on his wistful plans for a young Wolverine spinoff, one that would have slotted in between First Class and Days of Future Past on Fox’s release slate. Alas, that vision never came to be, and Vaughn later handed over the reins to franchise stalwart Bryan Singer.
However, when that fabled Wolverine pic was still kicking around in Matthew Vaughn’s head, it turns out the writer-director had fleshed out a rough idea for when and where his Logan spinoff would’ve taken place. Spoilers: it would have largely unraveled in the ’70s, before Days of Future Past brought the curtain down on his X-Men prequel trilogy further down the line. »

I loved director Matthew Vaughan's 2014 James-Bond-on-speed spy extravaganza Kingsman: The Secret Service. That film, adapted from the graphic novels by famed author Mark Millar (Kick Ass) took everything the world loved about the world's favorite martinio enthusiast and cranked it up to eleven, delivering a high octane action cartoon populated by memorable characters and featuring handsome relative newcomer Taron Egerton in the lead as the chavvy super spy in training, Eggsy. Trained by no less an expert in proper posh manners than Clive Owen's spy-cum-mentor Galahad, Eggsy took on a megalomanical tech magnate played with lispy verve by Samuel L Jackson and saved the world in a technicolor ballet of absurd violence and ridiculous spy tropes. In Kingsman: The Golden Circle, Eggsy is now...

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 debut of Kingsman: The Secret Service in February 2015. A sleeper hit, the first Kingsman went on to earn $414.4 million globally.

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. »

Snyder Not Coming Back For Justice League
Despite the rumours that Zack Snyder would return to the set of Justice League to help Joss Whedon finish the reshoots, it looks like the director has stepped aside for good. “I’m at a place where I feel excited about it and I’m happy for my guys and I love these people that are working on it, and they’re my family and I think they’re doing an amazing job,” he told Wired. “But I’ve kind of just let them do their thing.” Read more here.

How fancy is Kingsman: The Golden Circle? It's so fancy that the pug from the franchise showed up to the film's premiere fully decked out. See the pictures inside. »
What most people have been talking about in the run-up to the release of Kingsman: The Golden Circle is the mystifying reappearance of Colin Firth’s superspy Harry Hart. In 2014’s Kingsman: The Secret Service, Agent Galahad was undeniably shot in the head by Samuel L. Jackson’s villain – and yet the promotion for the sequel has been very open about the fact that Harry would be back in action this time around.
But was his return always on the cards? Was his apparently fake death in the first movie deliberately engineered with a hidden way for him to come back in a sequel? Well, no, it wasn’t. In an interview with ComicBook.com, Firth revealed that director/co-writer Matthew Vaughn did not originally envision the actor being part of the second outing. When asked if it was planned, he replied:
“It wasn’t but it was quite early. »

Welcome to this week’s “Preview Reel” column, where we look at the week’s upcoming wide-release movies. The horror film It dominated the box office again last weekend as two new releases struggled to find their audience. It would appear though that the two-week reign for the Stephen King adaption is about to end as two high-profile releases (The Lego Ninjago Movie and Kingsman: The Golden Circle) and one small budget horror flick (Friend Request) hit screens. All three movies seem to be targeting different demographics, but which one is best for you? Let’s find out.
What we are excited about: The Lego Movie franchise has turned out surprisingly good animated films. The Lego Movie was arguably the best animated movie of 2014, even though it was completely snubbed at the Oscars, and this year’s The Lego Batman Movie was an enjoyable riff on the classic comic book hero. »

Dumber and less stylish than its predecessor, Kingsman: The Secret Service, the cartoonish secret-agent pastiche Kingsman: The Golden Circle is also even more of an incoherent right-wing text, an exaggeration of the James Bond movies’ violence, fashion sense, and sex that keeps trying to pass off its ham-fisted…

This is, without a doubt, an unusually strong September at the box office.
The thanks go mostly to “It,” which charged out of the starting gate for Warner Bros. and New Line as a record-breaking hit two weekends ago with $123 million domestic. Last weekend it easily stayed on top of the North American charts with $60 million. But now, Pennywise the clown has tough competition from two new releases — Fox’s “Kingsman: The Golden Circle,” and “The Lego Ninjago Movie” from Warner Bros.
The sequel to “Kingsman: The Secret Service” looks like the leader of the pack. It’s tracking with a wide-ish margin in the $40 millions from more than 4,000 locations. That would be an improvement on the original, which had a domestic opening of $36.2 million. Foreign grosses boosted the first “Kingsman” to become a global hit, and it finished its run with $414.4 million worldwide. So B.O. observers should look abroad for the second go-around as well »
