Kingsman: The Golden Circle

New this month Trivia: Taron Egerton refused to shoot the scene where he implants the tracking device into Charlie's girlfriend's groin, as he felt uncomfortable touching the actress in that area. The hand we see reaching down into the woman's underwear is actually the hand of the actress' husband, who gladly volunteered to "double" for Egerton's hand in that scene.

New this month Trivia: The main villain's name is "Poppy Adams," and she is a sociopath drug-cartel leader. This is appropriate, as the poppy plant and their extracts are used in the production of many illegal street-drugs.

New this month Trivia: Spoilers. Originally, Merlin was meant to survive his apparent demise, albeit having lost his legs to the land-mine. He was going to humorously appear asking for a "bit of help" sans legs in a bit of dark humor. This was cut out after test-audiences found the idea that he lived hard-to-swallow.

New this month Trivia: Famed singer Elton John appears in a supporting role, eventually helping the Kingsman out during the climax. Oddly enough, around the time this movie was released, Kingsman co-star Taron Egerton was offered the role of John in an upcoming biopic entitled "Rocketman."

TedStixon

New this month Trivia: To date the only sequel to one of his own films that Matthew Vaughn has ever directed. Both the "Kick Ass" and "X-Men: First Class" follow-ups were directed by different people.

New this month Trivia: Director and co-writer Matthew Vaughn wrote the script about two years before the film was released. While working on the script with his writing partner, he included the song "Country Road" and several references to the singer Bob Denver, as he felt it was odd that such a celebrated and known singer as Denver wasn't being referenced much in movies or TV anymore. Evidently Vaughn wasn't the only one who had this same idea, as amusingly and coincidentally, "Kingsman 2" ended up being one of many films released in 2017 that either featured Denver's music, referenced him or featured covers of his songs. (Other notable 2017 films in this group included "Logan Lucky" and "Alien: Covenant.").

Trivia: Poppy has two robotic dogs called Bennie and Jet, this is after a song by Elton John - Bennie and the Jetts. Elton John is also in the film.

Trivia: Despite his relatively high billing, Channing Tatum has only 10 minutes of screen time.
