If the first Kingsman film didn't have enough fun messing with the boundaries of the traditional spy movie, The Golden Circle is back for another generous helping. 

"Just a little taste, bruv," tweeted star Taron Egerton, with a new twist on the concept of a teaser trailer, seeing the whole thing compressed into a five-second explosion of colour, noise, and Julianne Moore being fabulous.

The highly-anticipated sequel now plays as host to a line-up of A-list Americans (Channing Tatum, Jeff Bridges, Julianne Moore, Halle Berry, Pedro Pascal), to square up against the heroes of 2014's quintessentially British blockbuster. 

Though as Egerton assured The Independent, "I think it's still got that quintessential Britishness and it’s still about what being a gentlemen is, and we’re still in those beautifully tailored suits. As much as a large portion of the film is spent exploring what the Statesmen are – the American version – by the end, it's very much the Kingsmen who are saving the day again."

“So I think it's very faithful to its identity and what Matthew [Vaughn, director] established in the first one," he added. "But equally I think he recognises the importance of there being a new world to explore. I would never presume to know how his mind works, but I think, in this one, he knew that the audience would have that hunger for stuff they hadn't seen, which was what was fun about the first one, this world of Kingsman opening up before them. So in this one, we discover the Statesmen and we didn't even know they existed, and it's a whole new world to explore again."

Colin Firth has also been confirmed for (a rather miraculous return) to the film, as the members of the Kingsman find new allies across the pond after the destruction of their headquarters, working together to battle a ruthless enemy and save the day. 

Kingsman: The Golden Circle hits UK cinemas in September.
