Could Kingsman star Taron Egerton be the next James Bond?

VisitBritain launches spy-themed campaign ahead of film release

Chris Van Vliet is entertainment news royalty.

All in all, Kingsman: The Golden Circle is that same over the top movie where the most unexpected things happen, and you're not sure if you love it or hate it. Thanks to the miracle of cutting edge technology - and the bottomless Deco travel budget - Chris has this report from across the pond. And with Steve Carell and Emma Stone in the lead roles, expect plenty of pithy character moments even though you know how the story ends (i.e., King develops a taste for carpet). "If KINGSMAN comes back for another romp, hopefully it'll be with the same sense of energy and danger the first had". But this time around, the cast is bigger than ever.

As EW's Chris Nashawaty wrote in his C-minus review, "If the first Kingsman, at its best, felt like a dry martini of a joke, then this one is more Jack and Mountain Dew - unsubtle, unrefreshing, and unnecessary".

"Bond is eternally super-cool and clean cut and sharp; Eggsy is too, but Eggsy doesn't always get it right and I think that's the fun of Eggsy, he's not quite formed yet".

Kingsman: The Golden Circle has a September 22, 2017 release directed by Matthew Vaughn starring Taron Egerton, Colin Firth, Channing Tatum, Jeff Bridges, Halle Berry, Julianne Moore, Mark Strong, Pedro Pascal, with Elton John.

Julianne Moore (as Poppy): "Today marks the beginning of a new age". That was the part about being a sequel as well, I lost my discipline where you're with a bunch of friends and you go, "Oh that's a good idea", and it was a good idea, but everything just got longer and longer and longer.

Chris Van Vliet: "Is it fun being bad?" The first Kingman was an excellent spy film that outdid the original comic series in a number of ways, whilst also making the spy genre feel fresh. I think I wrote to Elton to beg him to be in the first one. You want me to believe that it's normal for a tailor to hack through an advanced biometric security system with nothing but a little bitty old watch on...

While the original "Kingsman" film focussed on the recruitment of Taron Egerton's secret agent character into a team of undercover spies, "The Golden Circle" centres around an entirely new adventure, which unites the Kingsman team with Statesman, their counterparts from across the pond, following the destruction of their headquarters by a mysterious organisation called (you guessed it!) The Golden Circle. Meanwhile, director Matthew Vaughn seems to have an obvious affection for the film as he does not shy away from developing the relationship of Eggsy and Galahad (Colin Firth), even emphasizing the sensitive side of the former in a scene where he sheds tears. "He wanted that to be real and that to be the fate of that character".
