Matthew Vaughn’s 2014’s spy spoof, Kingsman: The Secret Service, was a fun enough diversion.

Anyway we’ve known about the upcoming sequel for quite some time now — including the teases about a returning, arse-kicking Firth, as well as the introduction of the American version of the Kingsmen (the Statesmen, natch) — and a few hours ago 20th Century Fox dropped the first official trailer for Kingsman: The Golden Circle, giving us a first glimpse of both.
