Speaking to guests from the Colombo film and arts scene at the reception, the British High Commissioner to Sri Lanka, James Dauris, commented that the film reflects the breadth of talent in Britain's creative industries. There, in her own retro diner, she stuffs Keith Allen into a meat grinder, forces a drugged Elton John to play the piano in her theatre and lays down her big plan.

The Golden Circle' will premiere on September 22, 2017.

Julianne Moore was told by Colin Firth that she was wanted for the villain role in "Kingsman: The Golden Circle" by text message. "Kingsman: The Golden Circle" brings Colin Firth's character back from the dead.

Forced to team up with the United States branch, the Statesman, and with a surprise face back from the past, Eggsy and Merlin (the ever reliable and impressive Mark Strong) look to tackle the threat.

Making their first appearance in the series and adding more "marrow" to the American side are Jeff Bridges ("Starman") as Champagne "Champ"; Channing Tatum ("Magic Mike") as secret agent Tequila and the luscious Halle Berry ("X-Men") rounding out "Team USA" as "Ginger" the American tech guru.

Based on the comic book by Mark Millar and Dave Gibbons, there is an appropriately cartoony vibe to this follow-up flick.

For a would-be franchise aspiring for free-spirited adventures, The Golden Circle is mind-bogglingly dependent on the events of the first film.

"Then I just got in touch one more time and said: 'Look, I know you said no to the first, is there anything I can do try and persuade you to do the second one?' And he said: 'Look, I was an idiot in not doing the first one". That's director Matthew Vaughn not realizing what his strength was in "The Secret Service".

"Kingsman: The Secret Service" was a surprise hit in 2014 and now a sequel, "Kingsman: The Golden Circle", arrives to see if it can repeat that success. I was thinking: 'Who would be the worst person Valentine could kidnap and have to deal with every day?' And I thought Elton would be a pretty tough prisoner to keep happy. After all, the legendary pop star was nearly given more screen time than Channing Tatum and it's already looking like he'll definitely be back if that end scene is anything to go by.

With so many new characters, Eggsy sometimes gets lost in the shuffle, and the efforts to create emotional storylines for him-in his romance with the Swedish princess with whom he hooked up at the end of the last movie and in his paternal relationship with Harry-come off as forced and disingenuous.

The original "Kingsman" movie grossed more than $400 million around the world, but recapturing the charm of the first one proves impossible - especially when the sequel runs 141 mind-numbing minutes!
