2015 has been full of spy movies, but which ones work the best?

11 November 2015 4:50 PM, PST | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

At the start of this year, I was intrigued by what looked like a fairly spy-heavy line-up for this year's theatrical releases, and now that we're at the other end of the year, it seems like a good time to look back and see how the year actually played out versus how we thought things might go. One thing that's clear is that there were a ton of spy movies in 2015. If Sony hadn't pushed back the release of "The Brothers Grimsby," it would have been one more, and it makes it obvious why they pushed that film back to next year when you look at just how many spy-themed movies have been released since January. It's an unusual number, and I think it's just one of those flukes of timing. But when you look at all of them stacked up next to one another, it's interesting to see what worked and what didn't, »

7 Essential Daniel Craig Performances Beyond Bond

6 November 2015 8:07 AM, PST | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

Read More: Daniel Craig Says James Bond Is "Actually A Misogynist" "Layer Cake" (2004) The first feature from director Matthew Vaughn ("Kick-Ass," "Kingsman: The Secret Service"), "Layer Cake" is just as wild and action-packed as his more recent films, but it also has a a distinct emotional edge, due in large part to Craig’s performance as a nameless London cocaine dealer. Just before his early retirement, he is sent on two of his most dangerous assignments yet, which include kidnapping, killing and purchasing a ridiculous amount of hard drugs. In "Layer Cake," Craig shows off his trademark ability to be a rough-around-the-edges tough guy one moment and a vulnerable and authentic one the next without ever having us doubt his machismo. Craig’s cocaine dealer is a mess of violent fun and shows his beleaguered nature when the going gets too rough. "Hotel Splendide" (2000) Long before he was the first blonde. »

Red Band Trailer For Grimsby

31 October 2015 5:07 AM, PDT | | See recent TheMovieBit news »

When Matthew Vaughn left X-Men: Days of Future Past in favour of Kingsman: The Secret Service, the reason he gave was that there was quite a number of similar movies in development and he wanted to get his spy centric action comedy out first. You have to believe one of the movies he was talking about was  Louis LeTerrier’s (Now You See Me, The Incredible Hulk) Grimsby (The Brothers Grimsby in the U.S.), which stars Kingsman’s Mark Strong as a super spy who is forced to team up with his estranged football hooligan brother (Sacha Baron Cohen) to save the world. While I did think I was watching a live action ad for Black Ops 3 when I first saw this, this Nsfw trailer does gives us a good taste of what to expect (Strong acting badass, Cohen acting the hilarious scumbag), but anybody who has seen Spectre (in Ireland, »

Kingsman 2 Will Compete With Pixar At The Box Office

22 October 2015 9:17 PM, PDT | | See recent Cinema Blend news »

With Cars 3 already set to open June 16, 2017, any film that decides to counter-program against the continuously profitable adventures of Lighting McQueen is probably just a little crazy. Considering the sequel to Kingsman: The Secret Service did just that, it only proves our theory . and in the best way possible. The Playlist dropped the information in a recent announcement, which pits Eggsy and his compatriots against a children's franchise that's more critic proof than a Michael Bay movie. Even better still, the site has reported a potential title for the sequel: Kingsman An Unnecessary Follow-up. While this should be considered a heavy dose of cheek from The Playlist, as no official confirmation has been given, it sounds like exactly the sort of title that Mark Millar and Matthew Vaughn would feel right at home using. With an unconventional hero, a potentially off kilter title, and an audience eager for more comedic »

'Kingsman 2' Gets Summer 2017 Release Date

21 October 2015 11:51 AM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Five months after 20th Century Fox officially confirmed that Kingsman 2 is happening, the studio has set a June 16, 2017 release date for the sequel. Box Office Mojo confirmed the new date, which will put the action-packed follow-up against another highly-anticipated sequel, Disney Pixar's Cars 3. That entire month is already becoming quite crowded, with Paramount's World War Z 2 opening one week earlier on June 9, 2017, and Warner Bros.' Wonder Woman debuting a week later on June 23, 2017.

Kingsman: The Secret Service director Matthew Vaughn revealed in June that he has already started working on the Kingsman 2 script, teasing that the story may introduce an American covert agent. Taron Egerton will return as Eggsy, but it still isn't known if Colin Firth will be back as Eggsy's mentor, Harry Hart. While the character was killed at the end of Kingsman: The Secret Service, Mark Millar, who created the comic book the original movie is based on, »

Kingsman 2 Targets June 2017 Release Date

21 October 2015 11:18 AM, PDT | EmpireOnline | See recent EmpireOnline news »

Acting quickly to capitalise on the success of the first film, and the fact that co-writer/director Matthew Vaughn already had ideas for more stories, 20th Century Fox has planted a flag in June 16, 2017 for the Kingsman: The Secret Service sequel.Before we proceed further, we should caution that this and other dates mentioned from here on out are all targeted at Us audiences: the first Kingsman, for example, arrived on general release nearly half a month earlier here than it did in the States. But Variety’s report is more intriguing – or worrying, depending on how you look at it – in that Vaughn isn’t actually aboard to direct yet. There’s a chance we could be looking at a repeat of the Kick-Ass situation, with Vaughn handing off the sequel to someone else, but during our podcast chat with the man (find it below), he seemed so enthusiastic »

Release Date Announced for Kingsman 2

21 October 2015 10:39 AM, PDT | Cinelinx | See recent Cinelinx news »

Now that Robin Hood: Origins has been pushed back, Director, Matthew Vaughn is hard at work on the new Kingsman sequel. As such 20th Century Fox has announced a release date!

Kingsman 2 is well on its way to becoming reality now that Matthew is working on a script along with Jane Goldman. Filming should start in April 2016.

If everything goes as planned Kingsman 2 should hit theaters June 16, 2017. That is a very specific date so things are looking up for the sequel. Hopefully it will do just as good at the Box Office as its predecessor.

I never got a chance to see the original in theaters but it made $400 Million globally so I’m looking forward to to see if it is on Netflix or Amazon…

'Kingsman: The Secret Service' Sequel Set For 2017

21 October 2015 7:28 AM, PDT | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

It seems everyone wants a piece of Taron Egerton. Over the past few weeks, the trades have (over)played a seemingly manufactured "battle" between studios and tentpole projects for the actor, but it seems everything has worked out. Warner Bros. have secured the actor for "Robin Hood: Origins" (lol) and Fox has the young man reprising his role as Eggsy in the sequel to "Kingsman: The Secret Service," which now has a release date. Read More: Review: Matthew Vaughn's 'Kingsman: The Secret Service' Fox has set "Kingsman: An Unnecessary Follow-up" for June 16, 2017. It's a big move, with the studio having faith that their spy-spoof flick is big enough to be a summer movie contender. 'Kingsman 2' will open the same weekend as "Cars 3," one week after "World War Z 2" and one week before "Wonder Woman." It'll be interesting to see if Fox continues to stick »

Fox Pegs Kingsman 2 For June 2017, But Will Matthew Vaughn Direct?

21 October 2015 7:16 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

One need only look to Lionsgate’s decision to delay medieval reboot Robin Hood: Origins to get an idea of 20th Century Fox’s enthusiasm to push ahead with Kingsman 2. It all came down to leading star Taron Egerton, who is involved in both projects, and now that the studio has set its sights on an April start, BoxOffice brings word of the sequel locking down a release date: June 16, 2017.

Welcoming back Egerton’s now fully-trained agent to the fold, it’s understood that Matthew Vaughn is currently writing the script alongside Jane Goldman, once again tapping Mark Millar and Dave Gibbons’s source material. The real question, however, is which direction the scribes will steer Fox’s budding new franchise. Since its overly surprising box office success earlier in the year – pulling in a respectable box office haul of $400 million – Vaughn has teased a number of possible directions for the sequel, »

20th Century Fox Sets Release Date For Kingsman 2; Taron Egerton On Board

21 October 2015 5:31 AM, PDT | | See recent ComicBookMovie news »

For a second there, it actually looked like the sequel to this year's Kingsman: The Secret Service may not happen. Director Matthew Vaughn has been busy working on the script with Jane Goldman, but has since been linked to helm a number of different projects (including spy thriller I Am Pilgrim), while there were reports about a scuffle between Fox & Lionsgate over the services of star Taron Egerton - who is also set to shoot Robin Hood: Origins next year. Thankfully, the latter situation was resolved last week (per The Hollywood Reporter). Principal photography on Kingsman 2 willl begin in April 2016 (with Egerton, and hopefully Vaughn), while filming on Origins was pushed back to the end of next summer. According to Fox have now scheduled the sequel to arrive in theatres on June 16th, 2017. The Secret Service surprised most people by racking up over $400 million at the global »

"Kingsman" Sequel Set For June 2017

21 October 2015 4:45 AM, PDT | Dark Horizons | See recent Dark Horizons news »

Following on from its rousing success earlier this year with a whopping $413 million worldwide haul, a follow-up to Matthew Vaughn's film adaptation of Mark Millar and Dave Gibbons' spy-themed comic "Kingsman: The Secret Service" seemed inevitable.

The project was then confirmed and Vaughn, though not yet locked, has been considering directing it himself. We also know that filming on the project is slated to begin in April and will bring back Taron Egerton's Eggsy for another round of spy work.

Today, reports that the film has already scored a release date - June 16th 2017. It currently has competition from only one other title which is Disney and Pixar's "Cars 3". »

Kingsman 2 release date confirmed

20 October 2015 9:52 PM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »




The sequel to Kingsman: The Secret Service will arrive in June 2017...

It really is full steam ahead now for the sequel to Kingsman: The Secret Service.

Last week, it was revealed that the immediate battle for star Taron Egerton's services had been won by 20th Century Fox. The studio wants Kingsman 2 shooting by April 2016, and as such, the production of Lionsgate's Robin Hood: Origins, to which Egerton is also committed, has been pushed back to the end of next summer.

Which means the coast is clear for Kingsman 2.

Fox has thus now announced a release date for the film too. The movie will arrive in a summer slot, on June 16th 2017. That's a marked contrast to the quieter January bow the first movie got earlier this year in the UK. But then Kingsman: The Secret Service has proven to be one of the big sleeper hits of the year. »

Taron Egerton’s 2016 schedule has become a little clearer, with Robin Hood: Origins set to move into a late summer shooting slot in order to make way for Egerton to finish Kingsman 2 in Spring.

Earlier this month, it became clear that Egerton was facing a scheduling conflict between the two tentpole pictures, but The Hollywood Reporter has said that the conflict is now resolved.

Kingsman 2 producer Matthew Vaughn (Kick-Ass) took advantage of his option on Egerton for the action sequel’s April shoot, forcing Robin Hood: Origins to either move or recast.

Lionsgate subsequently shifted their timetable to allow Egerton to make Robin Hood: Origins when his commitments to Vaughn’s film are over later in the summer months.
