A new trailer for “Kingsman: The Golden Circle” has landed.

And it looks every bit as fun as the first film.

The sequel stars Taron Egerton, Mark Strong, Colin Firth, Halle Berry, Elton John and Channing Tatum.

This isn’t confirmed. But the Elton John biopic”Rocketman” may have its lead. And it’s none other than Bane himself. Tom Hardy is reportedly being considered for the role for the film from Michael Gracey. It would certainly be an interesting choice. And to be fair, I’d rather see Hardy take risks on projects and avoid Gerard Butler’s crap chick flicks and second rate action flicks he’s done after “300”.

Baz Luhrmann’s (“Moulin Rouge!”, “Australia”) adaptation of “Great Gatsby” has been delayed until next summer. But, according to reports, Luhrmann is looking to use the time to tweak the music, apparently going after Prince and Lady GaGa to contribute to the soundtrack. Probably no surprise. He worked with Elton John on the “Moulin Rouge!” soundtrack and Radiohead was on the “Romeo and Juliet” soundtrack.

The film stars Leonardo DiCaprio, Carey Mulligan and Tobey Maguire.

“Gnomeo and Juliet” was one of the surprise hits of 2011. Featuring the voices of James McAvoy and Emily Blunt and the music of Elton John, it was a box office smash. Now, the studio is moving forward with “Gnomeo and Juliet: Sherlock Gnomes”. The film will likely see the return of McAvoy and Blunt and John is expected to do the music again.

I didn’t see “Gnomeo and Juliet” but by all accounts it was a pleasant surprise. Not that anyone was saying, “Man, I hope they make another one” but I suppose a sequel to this is better than a sequel to “Ghost Rider”. Oh yeah. That happened too.
