Channing Tatum roped in excitement at CinemaCon, with the first trailer for “Kingsman: The Golden Circle” showing the actor using a deadly lasso that slices its victims in half.

The footage, unveiled Thursday morning, included the entire Kingsman complex being blown up, resulting in Taron Egerton’s Gary “Eggsy” Unwin declaring evenly, “We follow doomsday protocol.”

The exuberance-filled trailer opens with Egerton in a missile-armed spy car, followed by the discovery that the Kingsmen are facing a nefarious organization whose members have their fingerprints lasered off, and their teeth filed down.

With the headquarters missing, Egerton and Mark Strong, back as Eggsy’s trainer Merlin, find a bottle of Kentucky whiskey as a clue, leading them to discover an allied Kentucky-based spy organization in the U.S. called Statesman that’s staffed by a cowboy-style Tatum.

Colin Firth, donning an eyepatch, is also back as Harry Hart — even though he died in the 2014 original “Kingsman: The Secret Service” — along with newcomers Julianne Moore, Halle Berry, and Elton John.

Matthew Vaughn is returning to direct from a script he co-wrote with Jane Goldman with Egerton again starring. The 2014 original, “Kingsman: The Secret Service,” was based on the comic book “The Secret Service,” created by Dave Gibbons and Mark Millar. Vaughn also produced the original, which grossed a surprisingly healthy $415 million worldwide.

Fox is opening “Kingsman: The Golden Circle” for release on Sept. 29.

    An eyepatch? What a copout. I’m disappointed in Vaughn, whom I thought had more imagination than this; it seems like he’s rehashing the first movie with a character that already fulfilled its purpose. No wonder he had been so reluctant (till now) to do sequels.

    Here’s hoping there’s more to it than that but, as it is, my excitement for the movie has been cut in half. Well, it still has Egerton front and center with Strong being seemingly just as prominent; now with the training out of the way, at least it should be entertaining.

    George Washington was American, needless to say. These commie boatshit will rewrite American history so much we’ll just have to kill all these shitlessly little celebs deader than their box-office sales.

    Hip, hip hooray! Colin Firth is back for Kingsman 2. There would be absolutely no reason to see it if he did not return. He was Kingsman 1. Now I will see the sequel for sure.
