Twentieth Century Fox has debuted the first trailer for its upcoming spy actioner Kingsman: The Golden Circle, the follow-up to the critically-acclaimed 2014 sleeper hit Kingsman: The Secret Service.
The trailer picks up as Eggsy (Taron Egerton) surveys the damage from an apparent attack on the Kingsman’s headquarters in London. With the compound gone, the Kingsman must head overseas to America, where they’ll partner up with a secret U.S. spy agency, the Statesman, to confront and defeat a new threat.
Most of the original cast is back for the second go-around, including Egerton and Mark Strong, while new additions to the cast include Channing Tatum, Julianne Moore, Jeff Daniels, Halle Berry and Elton John.
Colin Firth’s character, Harry Hart, is also back for the sequel, despite being convincingly shot dead in the first installment. Firth’s name is on the poster for the film, so the twist shouldn’t come as too much of a surprise for fans; Hart appears toward the end of the trailer sporting an eye-patch.
Matthew Vaughn returns to direct Golden Circle, off of a script he co-wrote with Jane Goldman.
Kingsman: The Golden Circle is in theaters September 22.
