Part and parcel of Kingsman‘s lasting charm is the way in which Matthew Vaughn’s hyper-stylish actioner defied expectations. There’s the financial angle, of course; The Secret Service raked in over $400 million three years ago on a relatively modest budget of $81 million. But Kingsman really carved out an audience thanks to its ability to combine ridiculously over-the-top and trippy scenes and the crackerjack energy between Colin Firth and Taron Egerton.
Against all odds, those two will be back in business later this year with Kingsman: The Golden Circle, a sequel that’s set to shift the action across the pond. And so, just as the Kingsman staged their covert operation under the guise of a tailoring business, the Statesman have a front of their own: a whiskey distillery located high up in the mountains.
In the absence of Samuel L. Jackson’s Valentine, it’s the advent of Julianne Moore’s Poppy that forces the Kingsmen to join forces with their American counterparts, and up above you’ll be able to take a deep dive into their plush HQ.
On September 22nd, Kingsman: The Golden Circle will take the foundations of Matthew Vaughn and Jane Goldman’s action franchise project them onto a global scale.
