Fox Pushes Back Release Date For Kingsman: The Golden Circle

20th Century Fox has decided to change Kingsman: The Golden Circle‘s release date from June 16th, 2017 to October 6th, 2017.

The move is part of a larger shuffle at Fox that has also seen three of the studio’s Marvel films as well as an unidentified production given official release dates. It is unclear what this mystery project might be, but many suspect that it is the highly-anticipated Avatar 2:

Taron Egerton returns as Eggsy for Kingsman: The Golden Circle with Mark Strong reprising the role of Merlin from the first film. Halle Berry is appearing as the head of the CIA, Game of Thrones star Pedro Pascal will appear as a character conveniently named “Jack Daniels,” with Channing Tatum in an unknown role, and Julianne Moore playing the film’s central villain. Edward Holcroft is also set to appear in the film, though whether he will reprise as his character from the first is unclear. Sir Elton John will also make an appearance in his first acting role since The Pinball Wizard in 1975’s Tommy. The Dude himself, Jeff Bridges, is also appearing in an unknown role.

Matthew Vaughn returns to write and direct Kingsman: The Golden Circle, which sees Eggsy heading to the United States, where he’ll meet his match in a “swaggering, sharpshooting cowboy.”

About the author

Reggie Peralta

An aspiring writer, longtime film junkie, and former UCLARadio.com disc jockey (where I graduated with a BA in Political Science), I’ve made the jump from penning book reviews and current events editorials for HonorSociety.org to writing movie and TV news and reviews.

When I’m not working towards my certificate in Radio and Television/Video Production at Fullerton College, I enjoy reading (horror, science fiction, and historical/political nonfiction are particular favorites), participating in my school’s TV and theatre clubs, attending movie screenings, plays, concerts, and other events, and trying to come up with pithy things to say on social media. Believe it or not, there are occasions where I find time to write for my own leisure.
