Last week marked the cinema release of Kingsman: The Golden Circle from director Matthew Vaughn and starring Colin Firth, Julianne Moore, Taron Egerton, Mark Strong, Halle Berry, Channing Tatum and Jeff Bridges. Key scenes from this highly-anticipated sequel to Kingsman: The Secret Service were filmed on location in the city centre with the support of Film Birmingham.
Film Birmingham is committed to making filming as easy and efficient as possible by providing a one stop shop for local and international filmmakers. As well as welcoming the 300-strong crew for Kingsman: The Golden Circle Birmingham also recently played host to legendary director Steven Spielberg who filmed a significant portion of this new film Ready Player One in the city.
Filming for Kingsman: The Golden Circle took place in May 2016 in and around central Birmingham in locations including Colmore Row, Waterloo Street, Edmund Street, Margaret Street and Cornwall Street. The shoot involved a dramatic car chase between a black cab and three golden jaguars and can be seen in the TV spot and official trailer for the film.
Sindy Campbell, Manager at Film Birmingham said: ‘We were delighted to welcome the team from Kingsman: The Golden Circle to Birmingham and as a film friendly city it’s a great showcase of what we can offer.”
