When “Kingsman: The Secret Service” first arrived in 2014, the hit film came out of nowhere. The biggest stars in the film were Colin Firth and Samuel L. Jackson, but the R-rated spy spoof action film was led by a then unknown Taron Egerton. Well, audiences loved it, Egerton’s career is launched, and now a sequel is coming, and yes, it’s going to be bigger.
