We Watched ‘Kingsman’ And Now We Think Matthew Vaughn Should Make a Bond Film

21 minutes ago | FilmSchoolRejects.com | See recent FilmSchoolRejects news »

Over the course of director Matthew Vaughn‘s career his love for James Bond has rang loud and clear. In Vaughn’s debut feature, Layer Cake, the suave anti-hero, Xxxx (Daniel Craig), wields an old-fashioned gun with an ultra-cool pose that, for anyone who saw the film before Casino Royale, made Craig seem like an obvious contender for Bond. In the audio commentary for Layer Cake Vaughn mentions how Xxxx, during that scene, “wants to be Bond.” Not only does Xxxx want to be Bond, but Matthew Vaughn clearly wants — or wanted — to direct Bond. Now Vaughn has gotten his way by making a film that’s about as close one can get to Ian Fleming’s English spy. With Kingsman: The Secret Service, Vaughn has basically directed his own Bond picture, except without any self-seriousness, an anguished hero, or other modern Bond staples. Mark Millar‘s graphic novel, adapted by Vaughn and Jane Goldman, brings »

The 14 Best Action Movies of 2014

21 hours ago | FilmSchoolRejects.com | See recent FilmSchoolRejects news »

There were some fantastically great action films released in 2014, but 2014 was not a great year for action films. The horror genre had no such shortage (as evidenced by the greatness occupying our list of the year’s best) and you can probably name several comedies that had you busting a gut in 2014, but action films? There weren’t very many, and what there was rarely impressed. But sometimes you find great action in less than great movies, and with that understanding I was able to find 14 movies that fit the bill as the Best Action Films of 2014. Well, almost. 14. Kingsman: The Secret Service (trailer, red band) Fine, I’m starting right out of the gate with a major cheat, but I did say there weren’t a lot of great action movies in 2014 didn’t I? The original trailer for Matthew Vaughn‘s 2015 release didn’t do much for me, but »

Kingsman: The Secret Service - Poster and New Recruits Featurette

15 December 2014 6:00 PM, PST | GeekTyrant | See recent GeekTyrant news »

Here is a new poster and featurette for director Matthew Vaughn’s Kingsman: The Secret Service. I assume those unfamiliar with Vaughn’s previous work (Kick-Ass, Layer Cake) look at this film and have no idea what to make of it. The characters look very over the top, with Samuel L. Jackson as a lisping villain with no stomach for violence, newcomer Taron Egerton as a stereotypical foul-mouthed street kid, and a girl (Sofia Boutella) running around with swords for legs. Despite the campy elements, the movie also seems to take itself quite seriously. The cast is stellar — Colin Firth, Michael Caine, Mark Strong, Mark Hamill; and the action, though uniquely cartoonish, is extremely brutal — watch the featurette below and the red band trailer for a taste. Along with some new footage from the film, the featurette also has interviews with Vaughn and the cast talking about the story.

Top 5: Exodus: Gods And Kings, Insane Mad Max: Fury Road Trailer, Inherent Vice, Inside Out Trailer, Golden Globe Nominations

13 December 2014 12:09 PM, PST | Collider.com | See recent Collider.com news »

The opening paragraph is typically a space occupied by movie recommendations and, in a way, today is only a minor deviation. I was recently gifted a hardcover edition of Mark Millar and Dave Gibbons' comic series Kingsman: The Secret Service and I enjoyed it enough to not only throw a book recommendation your way but to also say I'm firmly on board for Matthew Vaughn (who earned a co-plotting credit on the comic) and Jane Goldman's movie adaptation due out in February (see the latest Red-Band trailer here). Embedded in Millar's hyper-violent action are noble lessons about the value of public service, remembering where you came from, and the importance of recognizing stereotypes while having enough self-esteem to avoid letting yourself being defined by them. As for the movie, the bits I've seen look to be just as entertaining as the book albeit with more parkour action. After »

Kingsman: The Secret Service's Red Band Trailer Is Bloody, Beautiful

10 December 2014 10:27 AM, PST | cinemablend.com | See recent Cinema Blend news »

Did the kids enjoy the Inside Out trailer we dropped earlier? If so, that's awesome to hear, and we're glad to be of service. But if you're looking for something a little more adult oriented, then you might want to click on the Kingsman: The Secret Service trailer below and revel in all of the R-rated wonderment. Thanks to IGN, we now have what's probably the most exciting look at what's already shaping up to be a fun action romp. Kingsmen: The Secret Service looks like it will be taking the less serious approach to James Bond spy work, while amping the idea up with the sensibilities that director Matthew Vaughn exhibited with his adaptation of Kick Ass. Most importantly, it's given us the first hint that this film is going to be an R-rated comedy that does not spare bullets, blood, or profanity. Also on display in this trailer »

Colin Firth plays a dirty James Bond in new red band trailer for delayed 'Kingsman'

10 December 2014 9:37 AM, PST | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

"Kingsman: The Secret Service" is finally ready to save the world. Originally set to open last month, the release date of the 20th Century Fox action-spy-comedy bounced around several times before finally settling on February 2015.  It's been on the radar for some time, so the studio is starting a new trailer campaign to remind viewers of the film's James Bond-on-speed attitude. Adapted from the comic book created by Mark Millar ("Kick-Ass"), "Kingsman" reunites him with writer-director Matthew Vaughn and co-writer Jane Goldman, who also teamed on "X-Men: First Class." As a key member of an outrageous British spy ring that makes 007's MI6 look like a bunch of Cub Scouts, Firth takes a rookie (Taron Egerton) under his wing. Exchanging his "The Avengers" heroics for evil (and his trademark Kangols for various Yankees caps), Samuel L. Jackson plays the bad guy bent on destroying the world.   The latest Nsfw trailer offers plenty of mayhem, »

Red Band Trailer For Kingsman: The Secret Service Is Heavy On Action And F-Bombs

10 December 2014 9:15 AM, PST | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

We may have to wait until next November to see James Bond return to the big screen in Spectre, but we only have to wait until February to watch another suave British spy use clever gadgets and finely tailored suits to save the world, as that’s when Matthew Vaughn’s Kingsman: The Secret Service hits theaters.

Kingsman stars Colin Firth as a secret agent who recruits a street kid, played by Taron Egerton, into a hidden society of British spies. The film was supposed to hit theaters back in October, but was unfortunately moved from that crowded month to February, where it will get a bit more breathing room (though it’s still facing tough competition, with Fifty Shades of Grey opening that same weekend). Luckily, it looks like the flick will be worth the wait, if this new red band trailer is any indication, at least.

"The world is going to shit!"

A new red-band trailer has been released for director Matthew Vaughn’s badass looking action thriller, Kingsman: The Secret Service. I’m seriously excited for this movie, and this trailer offers up some sweet new footage that features the world going completely bat-shit crazy. The movie just looks like a ridiculously fun time! 

The movie is based on the comic book created by Mark Millar and Dave Gibbons. It tells the story of "a super-secret spy organization that recruits an unrefined but promising street kid into the agency's ultra-competitive training program just as a global threat emerges from a twisted tech genius."

It stars Colin Firth, Michael Caine, Taron Egerton, and Samuel L. Jackson. Kingsman: The Secret Service hits theaters on February 13th, 2015. »

Watch: Red Band Trailer for 'Kingsman: The Secret Service'

10 December 2014 6:32 AM, PST | Rope of Silicon | See recent Rope Of Silicon news »

Director Matthew Vaughn is returning to the world of comic book author Mark Millar with his latest film. Millar also penned Kick-Ass, which Vaughn turned into a fairly enjoyable film. Kingsman: The Secret Service, which was coauthored by Dave Gibbons, is their next collaboration, and the film just received the red band trailer treatment, which you can all watch below. I am assuming the film involves the Secret Service and British people, as the title would indicate. Samuel L. Jackson shows up with a Yankees cap, and Colin Firth wears a suit. People get shot. It is a light, fluffy action film. What else is there to knowc I cannot imagine this is a deep exploration on the divide between man and nature. I enjoyed Kick-Ass (Kick-Ass 2 on the other hand...), so hopefully, Vaughn can turn another Millar story into something entertaining. The movie is set to be released on »
