Eggsy and his band of top notch English assassins are back at it again in the upcoming KINGSMAN: THE GOLDEN CIRCLE. With their base of operation in ruins, the team must now join forces with their American counterpart, the Statesman. Together they must work to topple the evil organization The Golden Circle, which is led by the criminal mastermind Poppy (Julianne Moore). In this new TV commercial, "Southern Charm," Eggsy (Taron Egerton) brings the action in style, but also meets with a friend from the past.
Can you spot the old friend? Check out the trailer:
Eggsy, The Princess, And The Swedish Royal Family
Early in the trailer, one face many fans might remember is the Swedish princess from the first movie. In KINGSMAN: THE SECRET SERVICE, she refused to implant Richmond Valentine's (Samuel L. Jackson) brain chip and was imprisoned in Valentine's secured facility. After Eggsy killed all of Valentine's guards and Valentine himself, he freed the princess. What comes after the princess's freedom is a scene that sparked controversy when the movie first came out. The scene was met with criticism from some, while other fans applauded it for its reference to the old 007 Bond movies which contained such innuendos.
Despite the mixed views on the sex joke, the princess is clearly back for the sequel. In the trailer we can see her sitting next to what appears to be the Queen and King of Sweden. Perhaps Eggsy is now her new boyfriend, with high consideration of becoming the Prince of Sweden. Her inclusion in the movie might be a sign of more funny jokes from director Matthew Vaughn, which of course, is never a bad thing. Especially when the jokes are inspired by the great spy movies of the past.
KINGSMAN: THE GOLDEN CIRCLE opens in theaters September 22.
