Michael Caine and Colin Firth assemble the Kingsmen in new trailer

1 hour ago | Cineplex | See recent Cineplex news »

Samuel L. Jackson’s villain, Valentine, may be just a tad jealous. In the new trailer for next year’s Kingsman: The Secret Service, the lisping Valentine admits to Harry Hart (Colin Firth), a secret agent under the direction ofMichael Caine, that he always wanted to be a spy.

That opportunity, however, is about to be bestowed on the hoodie Gary “Eggsy” Unwin (Taron Egerton), a high school dropout with unexpected potential. Though he doesn’t quite look the part of a dapper British spy, with the help of Hart, a pair of glasses, and a well-cut suit, Eggsy may just be up for the job.

Directed by Kick-Ass and X-Men: First Class’ Matthew Vaughn and also starring Mark Hamill and Mark Strong,Kingsman: The Secret Service hits theatres on February 13, 2014.

Check out the brand new trailer and the For Your Eyes Only-inspired poster below!

Samuel L. Jackson Hams It up in New 'Kingsman: The Secret Service' Trailer

16 hours ago | The Hollywood Reporter | See recent The Hollywood Reporter news »

The new trailer for Matthew Vaughn's Kingsman: The Secret Service gives us a greater glimpse at Valentine, the fiendish yet funny villain played by Samuel L. Jackson.  In the clip we see Valentine tell Colin Firth's Harry Hart that his dream was to become a "gentleman spy." Clearly something went wrong with the young Valentine. And he's still not loving the sight of blood.  There's a blink-and-you'll-miss-it peek at Mark Hamill playing Professor James Arnold, and we also learn more about the people running the secretive super spy organization the Kingsman. Merlin (Mark Strong) and

New trailer lands for Kingsman: The Secret Service

26 November 2014 10:35 PM, PST | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

The first comic book movie of 2015 looks to set the standard high. Colin Firth stars in Matthew Vaughn's Kingsman: The Secret Service.

Don't be fooled. When Kingsman: The Secret Service got moved to a seemingly-off peak release slot at the end of January 2015 (if all had gone to plan, the film would have been released already), there was the usual speculation that all was not well with the movie.

In fact, turns out that's not the case at all. Kingsman: The Secret Service is a surprisingly low-budget production, that's just been hunting for some room in the release schedules. The cut of the film we saw recently was 99% done, save for one or two upgrades to effects shot. We suspect Kingsman: The Secret Service may end up surprising a few people.

Not least fans of Colin Firth. As this trailer hints, he becomes something of an action star in »

U.K. Trailer For Kingsman: The Secret Service Turns On The Charm

26 November 2014 1:22 PM, PST | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Director Matthew Vaughn is compiling a hefty back catalogue of solid genre pics. From the brash and unapologetic Kick-Ass, to the fun-packed X-Men: First Class, his signature style suggests that fun overrides any po-faced seriousness the story may contain. Another entry that will soon be added to that resume is his upcoming spy romp, Kingsman: The Secret Service.

The adaptation of Mark Millar’s comic comes across as part-spoof, part-homage. Its main influence appears to stem from the Bond canon – with one notable twist. Instead of casting a ripped, rugged beefcake-type, Vaughn has opted to install Colin Firth as his leading man.

In the film, the English actor plays a veteran spy for a secret organization called Kingsman. His role has him recruiting potential new talent for the company, which is where he stumbles upon a young lad on the streets (played by Taron Egerton). Drafting him into the organization »

New Posters & Trailer For Matthew Vaughn’s ‘Kingsman’

26 November 2014 11:25 AM, PST | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

Matthew Vaughn promises to deliver a very R-rated version of Mark Millar’s graphic novel Kingsman: The Secret Service during the first part of 2015, and frankly, we can’t wait. We love what he did with the likes of Kick-ass and X-men: First Class, and don’t forget, this will be the film he gave up X-men: Days Of Future Past to make.

Colin Firth leads an all star cast in the film, which 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. Michael Caine, Taron Egerton, and Samuel L. Jackson also star.

IMDb have debuted a bunch of new domestic (Us) character posters for the release, and a brand new trailer has also been unveiled over at the mighty Empire magazine’s website. Click »

New UK Trailer for Kingsman: The Secret Service Busts Out the Spy Movie References

26 November 2014 7:23 AM, PST | Collider.com | See recent Collider.com news »

20th Century Fox has released a new UK trailer for director Matthew Vaughn’s (X-Men: First Class) adaptation of the Mark Millar graphic novel Kingsman: The Secret Service.  The story revolves around a secret spy organization called Kingsman, in which Colin Firth’s veteran spy works to recruit and train an unrefined but promising street kid (Taron Egerton).  It’s been clear from the first trailer that Vaughn is making a sort of riff on the typical James Bond movie with this picture (complete with eccentric villain played by Samuel L. Jackson), and this new trailer has plenty of references not only to Bond but the spy genre as a whole.  I’ve never not had fun with one of Vaughn’s films, and Kingsman looks to be an absolute blast. Check out the new Kingsman: The Secret Service trailer after the jump, and click here to view four new character posters. »

Pick a Puppy in the New UK Trailer for 'Kingsman: The Secret Service'

26 November 2014 7:22 AM, PST | firstshowing.net | See recent FirstShowing.net news »

"Give me a farfetched theatrical plot any day." From across the pond, a new trailer has emerged for Matthew Vaughn's big, fun spy action thriller Kingsman: The Secret Service, and fans of spies movies of all kinds are going to find something to love. It's like James Bond meets kick ass with all sorts of meta talk of other spies and their movies between Colin Firth and villain Samuel L. Jackson. Plus, the action looks to be pretty insane, especially with that henchwoman with giant blades for legs (she's also featured on four new character posters). This one also continues the trend of featuring adorable dogs (specifically a pug) in action thrillers, if that's something you love. It certainly looks like it'll be outlandish fun. Watch below! Here's the latest UK trailer for Matthew Vaughn's Kingsman: The Secret Service from Empire:   brightcove.createExperiences(); And here's four character posters »

New Character Posters For Kingsman: The Secret Service

26 November 2014 6:53 AM, PST | www.themoviebit.com | See recent TheMovieBit news »

Stepping foot into the realm of comic book movies yet again (and adapting the work of Mark Millar for a second time after Kick-Ass), Matthew Vaughn is taking the helm of Kingsman: The Secret Service, a movie that is best described as My Fair Lady meets James Bond. While it may have been delayed till next year, anticipation should still be high, and, courtesy of IMDb, we have four new character posters (featuring Colin Firth, Samuel L. Jackson, Taron Egerton, and Dog) that perfectly captures the fun and irreverent tone the movie promises to deliver, while making a tongue in cheek swipe at probably the most famous Bond image at the same time. Check them out below. Released: 12th February 2015 (Irl/U.K.)/ 13th February 2015 (U.S.) »
