Eggsy and the Kingsman return in another adventure, travelling to the US to recruit the Statesman.
The first Kingsman film debuted in 2014 and proved to an interesting take on the James Bond theme. Based on the graphic novel “The Secret Service – Kingsman” by Mark Millar and Dave Gibbons, it’s filled with both violent action and plenty of humour.
For those of you who haven’t seen the original, it concerns Eggsy, a young London man who is wasting his talents stealing cars and generally getting into trouble.
He is contacted by his uncle who reveals himself to be a Kingsman, essentially a James Bond type figure, and offers Eggsy the same in order to change his ways.
This first trailer for the sequel shows us that the Kingsman headquarters have been destroyed and the team travel to the US to recruit their American equivalents, the Statesman, to help enact their revenge.
I’m not sure why the marketing makes a note that Matthew Vaughn directed the first film, he has also directed Kick-Ass and X-Men: First Class as well!
