Kingsman: The Secret Service was one hell of a movie! Based on the comic book series The Secret Service from Mark Millar and Dave Gibbons, the movie was both a fun homage and semi-parody on the spy genre. A love letter to James Bond in every way, director Matthew Vaughn brought with him everything he learned from Kick-Ass and X-Men: First Class and took it to the next level with incredible action scenes, dialogue, and cast including memorable performances by Colin Firth, Samuel L. Jackson, and Taron Egerton.

The sequel, Kingsman: The Golden Circle, sees the return of Vaughn as director and cast members Egerton, Mark Strong, and Firth… somehow. Joining them is a completely bonkers cast including Jeff Bridges, Channing Tatum, Halle Berry, Julianne Moore, and even Elton John. And let’s not forget that Pedro Pascal (Narcos, The Great Wall) is playing a character named “Jack Daniels.” The film is in post-production, and the synopsis goes as follows:

When an attack on the Kingsman headquarters takes place and a new villain rises, Eggsy and Merlin are forced to work together with the American agency Statesman to save the world.

Kingsman: The Golden Circle was originally scheduled for release on October 6, 2017, but now it has been moved up a notch. Just a notch. Exhibitor Relations announced on Twitter that Fox shuffled the film one week earlier with a new release date of September 29, 2017. 

Does one week really make much of a difference? Yes, when your film was originally scheduled to be released the same day as Blade Runner 2049, it does. It really does. Am I complaining? Absolutely not, as I’ll take the continuing adventures of Eggsy as soon as I can get it!
