Flickering Myth’s Thomas Harris caught up with filmmaker Matthew Vaughn this week at the press junket for Kingsman: The Golden Circle, during which the conversation turned to Vaughn’s 2007 fantasy adventure Stardust.
Vaughn discusses being influenced by The Princess Bride, the studio’s decision to market it as a Lord of the Rings-style fantasy, and its cult status amongst fans some a decade after its release. Watch his comments here, or over on our YouTube channel…
Be sure to check back later this weekend for our full Kingsman: The Golden Circle interviews with Vaughn and Colin Firth.
Kingsman: The Secret Service introduced the world to Kingsman – an independent, international intelligence agency operating at the highest level of discretion, whose ultimate goal is to keep the world safe. In Kingsman: The Golden Circle, our heroes face a new challenge. When their headquarters are destroyed and the world is held hostage, their journey leads them to the discovery of an allied spy organization in the US called Statesman, dating back to the day they were both founded. In a new adventure that tests their agents’ strength and wits to the limit, these two elite secret organizations band together to defeat a ruthless common enemy, in order to save the world, something that’s becoming a bit of a habit for Eggsy.
Kingsman: The Golden Circle is set for release on September 20th in the UK and on September 22nd in the US, and features a cast that includes Colin Firth, Taron Egerton, Mark Strong, Julianne Moore, Halle Berry, Elton John, Channing Tatum, Pedro Pascal and Jeff Bridges.
