Though this year’s San Diego Comic-Con is just beginning, the entertainment news is already pouring in. Among the early chatter? A brand new Kingsman: The Golden Circle trailer, full of cursing, drones, and a laser lasso.
Kingsman: The Golden Circle’s red band trailer is set to The Who’s “My Generation.” We see more of a focus on the team up between the Kingsman and their American counterparts, the Statesman. After Julianne Moore’s Poppy vows to destroy the Kingsman, they head to the U.S. There, modern cowboys — all of whom are named after alcoholic beverages — assist their British counterparts.
Among the most exciting parts of the trailer is a scene where Pedro Pascal’s character uses a high-tech lasso. It shines bright blue as he uses it to effectively cut a man in half. Take a step back, Wonder Woman’s Lasso of Truth — your highly volatile cousin, laser lasso, is here.
On top of all of this, we get another look at the miraculously alive Harry Hart (Colin Firth). Though he is now missing an eye, Hart doesn’t seem to have skipped a beat. He joins Eggsy (Taron Egerton), now a full-fledged agent, as they gun down their enemies with a briefcase and a “brolly” in a quintessentially English moment.
So what exactly can fans expect in terms of the American crossover? It’s safe to say that the Brits are in for a bit of surprise when it comes to interacting with the Statesman. But if we know one thing, it’s that Channing Tatum and Jeff Bridges will definitely be bringing the humor.
While we’ve yet to receive word on the nature of Elton John’s cameo — it seems likely to remain a surprise until the film’s release — the new trailer offers up some very satisfying details. And in just two months’ time, we’ll get to see how our proper heroes fare on the battlegrounds of Kentucky.
Kingsman: The Golden Circle lands in theaters on September 22, 2017.
