Fox has released the second (red band!) trailer for the Kingsman sequel, which finds the snazzy Brits on the run and seeking help from their American cousins. If the Kingsman and Statesman teams can stop giving each other shit, they might even be able to save the world from the villainous Poppy (Julianne Moore).
We get a better look at the explosive action, and more importantly the new gadgets the spies will be playing with. Exploding cologne! Briefcase rocket launchers! Lassos that light up and slice people in half (and no, Eggsy, a lasso is not a skipping rope)! I’m still a little sad that Matthew Vaughn left the X-Men franchise after First Class, but if that means we get Kingsman in our lives, it’s a more than acceptable trade-off. Dude knows how to direct some inventive fights with killer style!
We still don’t know how or why Colin Firth’s Harry Hart is still alive, but we do get some more screen time with the southern fried Agent Whiskey, played by Pedro Pascal. His twangy accent is worth the price of a movie ticket all on its own.
The film will be released on September 22nd. The cast also includes Taron Egerton, Mark Strong, Halle Barry, Channing Tatum, Jeff Bridges, and Elton John. You heard me. Motherfuckin’ Rocket Man.
