With the Kingsman headquarters destroyed by a mysterious crime syndicate, and Eggsy must enlist the help of their larger-than-life counterparts, Statesman, to track down the psychopathic villain behind the attack.
Julianne Moore’s Poppy Adams in “Kingsman: The Golden Circle” is an exiled American crime lord now living in her own personal theme park, Poppyland, found in the wilds of Cambodia. Vaughn turned to the wonderful Julianne Moore since she’s long been considered as one of the world’s greatest actors, perfect for portraying a larger-than-life lunatic, whose grand plans for the world bring her into direct conflict with Kingsman and the Statesman.
Moore is endlessly watchable and incredibly versatile, notching up an array of stunning performances in the likes of “Boogie Nights,” “Magnolia,” the “Hunger Games” series,” The Lost World: Jurassic Park” and “Still Alice,” the movie for which she finally won a long overdue Best Actress Oscar. She shares her thoughts on her outrageous character in the movie: “No matter how outrageous her antics are, they’re normal in her world. She’s the only character in her world, so she doesn’t know. She’s a megalomaniac in the way that all great villains are. One movie I loved so much growing up as a kid was the original Superman–watching Gene Hackman play Lex Luthor alongside his girlfriend sidekick, they were so funny and so real, but also true villains. That’s a tone I thought of a lot when I was making this.”
A guaranteed and spectacular entertainment, the “Kingsman: The Golden Circle” packs a subversively funny, stylish and unique action event that expands the Kingsman universe in the most unexpected ways. Catch Juliaane Moore and the original cast Colin Firth, Taron Egerton, Mark Strong and Sophie Cookson, as well as new cast members Halle Berry, Channing Tatum, Pedro Pascal and Jeff Bridges.
“Kingsman: The Golden Circle” opens nationwide on September 20 in Philippine cinemas, thanks to 20th Century Fox and distributed by Warner Bros. Also available in IMAX screens nationwide.
