With less than a month to go until Kingsman: The Golden Circle arrives in cinemas, we now have another burst of character posters to enjoy before we get to see the upcoming spy action-comedy sequel. For those scouring every tidbit released about the movie to find out any clues or spoilers in regards to what we should expect, these new posters offer up a lot of interesting hints.
The nine new one-sheets showcase four agents apiece for both Kingsman and their American cousins, Statesman, with each labelled with their codenames. Specifically, we have Agent Galahad (Taron Egerton), Lancelot (Sophie Cookson), Merlin (Mark Strong), Former Agent Galahad (Colin Firth), Agent Tequila (Channing Tatum), Agent Whiskey (Pedro Pascal), Agent Champagne (Jeff Bridges) and Ginger Ale (Halle Berry). The movie’s villain, Julianne Moore’s Poppy, also gets her own image.
As well as featuring full-length character shots, each poster gives us a sense of their favoured weaponry, fashion sense and even hobbies. For instance, Eggsy’s poster reminds us of his working-class origins by featuring his hoodie on display. Ginger Ale’s, meanwhile, shows us that she’s a scientist by her microscope and test tubes. And, uh, apparently Harry Hart has gotten into butterfly catching since his retirement, as his poster features a net, binoculars and several pressed butterflies.
Those who’ve kept a close eye on the marketing for the movie will note the fact that Lancelot has got her own poster here as well. Previously, Cookson’s character has only been briefly glimpsed in the trailers, suggesting that she would be one of the victims of Poppy’s attack on Kingsman HQ towards the start of the film. The fact that she’s being highlighted with her own poster, though, makes us think that maybe she’ll make it out after all. Let’s hope so, as our heroes will be a pretty male-dominated outfit otherwise.
Kingsman: The Golden Circle arrives in theatres on September 22nd.
