With the summer movie season soon coming to a close, we’ll begin to studios ushering in a wave of awards hopeful fall releases that will, hopefully, help us recover from the onslaught of blockbusters that have reigned supreme at the box office these past few months. However, there’s one star-studded action flick, in particular, that managed to slip by the rest of them, but we’ll forgive it anyway, just because there’s nothing more fun than a good ole’ fashioned spy comedy.
Matthew Vaughn is in the director’s chair once again, this time at the helm of the follow-up to his stylish, visually-pleasing Kingsman: The Secret Service, which was a hell of an experience if you had the pleasure of watching it in an actual theater environment. This time around, Fox is looking to take their Kingsman franchise one step further with The Golden Circle, where our favorite international intelligence agency is forced to team-up with an allied spy organization in the US, appropriately titled Statesman.
The “Southern Charm” spot is truly a superb piece of marketing, and brilliantly showcases Vaughn’s well-directed, precisely choreographed fight sequences, while simultaneously introducing us to a hilarious clash of posh British culture and, well, southern charm (although, we’re not quite sure how we feel about Channing Tatum’s accent in this movie, but let’s give him a free pass for now).
Kingsman: The Golden Circle also stars Taron Egerton, Colin Firth, Jeff Bridges, Channing Tatum, Julianne Moore, Pedro Pascal, and Halle Berry. The film will open in theaters on September 22, 2017.
