Show­down be­tween the big­gest

Daily Star Sunday - - RESULT! -

THOSE sharp-suited su­per-spies are back and they have their sights on crack­ing Amer­ica.

In Kings­man: The Golden Cir­cle, the suave Bri­tish agents head off to the States to meet their colo­nial cousins the States­men.

With the film out on Wed­nes­day, ris­ing Welsh star Taron Eger­ton talks us through the se­quel to Matthew Vaughn’s 2014 hit…

Q: Was the suc­cess of the first movie a sur­prise?

Q: Is there a po­lit­i­cal an­gle to the film? A: There is def­i­nitely a po­lit­i­cal or pres­i­den­tial theme that runs through

CLASH OF TITANS: Riv­et­ing fi­nal is so tense the pre­miere of the first movie. I also got to keep one of those beau­ti­ful Bre­mont watches, but I’m so scared of los­ing it I hardly wear it.

in­cred­i­ble vi­sion, so I wasn’t re­ally sur­prised it done well.
