Both the Kingsman movies and the comics are unafraid to root themselves in the events of the real world -- and no one is particularly safe from being mocked or blown up, no matter how famous they are. But The Golden Circle drew itself back from targeting one figure in particular: Then-Presidential-candidate Donald Trump.

Even though directors are in charge of creating movies, selling those movies to people is usually none of their business. Sometimes that can have consequences, like how the "Bohemian Rhapsody" trailer for Suicide Squad reportedly led to a rewrite of the movie's tone and structure. In other cases, it can actual spoil your biggest reveal -- something Kingsman: The Golden Circle director Matthew Vaughn knows all too well.
Imagine you were 10 years old and given five minutes to tear through a toy store. You'd sprint in, grab everything you wanted, and fall down from exhaustion at the end. It would be an amazing time, but with so much happening so fast, what would the real, lasting memory be? That experience, in movie form, is Kingsman: The Golden Circle.
Kingsman: The Golden Circle has the umbrella guns, missile-firing cars, and suit-wearing secret agents that you've been wanting to see. More surprisingly, the second movie to spring from the Kingsman/The Secret Service comic-book franchise makes a good case for what can be gained in adapting works across different mediums, like a heart beating underneath all that explosive cheesy popcorn.
We've already known that Channing Tatum would be planning an American spy with a hefty Southern accent in the new Kingsman movie, and now we can check out his introduction in a new clip.
Video: For all its style and slickly choreographed fight sequences, Fox's Kingsman franchise is way more interested in being ridiculously fun to watch than anything else. That's not to suggest that a grappling umbrella isn't cool (it totally is), but rather, Kingsman knows that it's that much flyer because of how insane it is.
Video: During yesterday's Kingsman: The Golden Circle panel, Fox premiered a new digital short, a delightfully fun crossover where Kingsman's Eggsy (Taron Egerton) runs into world's-greatest-spy-but-also-kind-of-an-idiot Sterling Archer (H. Jon Benjamin), where the two secret agents do what they're best at: Being dapper and acting kind of dickish.
Video: The next Kingsman movie is going to examine the very special relationship shared by the US and the United Kingdom... mainly by having both country's spy agencies, the Kingsman and the Statesmen, take the piss out of each other. But on top of that, it's going to give us some truly spectacular action, too.
We've only had a brief glimpse of Julianne Moore's new villain in the next Kingsman movie so far, but new details have emerged about the character that... well, make her sound pretty damn great and suitably ludicrous for a Kingsman big bad.
Video: Unsurprisingly, given that one of the big sets in this movie is a bourbon distillery, there is a lot of drinking going on in the Kingsman sequel. Also, presumably, the classic joke of uptight Brits in suits being given American liquor and being either pleasantly surprised or nearly killed by moonshine.
Over the weekend, we got a trailer for Kingsman: The Golden Circle. And, while the joy of these movies is the ride more than the mystery, there are some things we noticed we just need to share.
Yes, there are really already rumours about who's been cast as Barbara Gordon. More speculation on the future of the Star Wars Story spinoffs. Could a Rogue One location play an important role in The Last Jedi? Plus, get a look at Molly Ringwald on Riverdale, and new footage from Arrow's return. Behold, spoilers!
