Samuel L. Jackson says he is 'Jesus of Comic-Con' as we discuss 'Kingsman'

29 July 2014 10:15 AM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

"I just wanted to figure out how long I had to stay alive to shoot nine pictures." I've done a lot of interviews at a lot of events over the years, and I have to give special credit to 20th Century Fox this year for staging one of the most orderly and relaxed afternoons I can remember. They had a place on top of the Hard Rock Cafe. Nothing major. A suite with a long balcony and a hot tub area. They had some tables set up on the balcony with food. They had some chairs. And they had an area where we were able to set up to talk to a group of people representing the slate they had that afternoon. Samuel L. Jackson is an icon at this point. He has put his stamp on this era of cinema in a way few people ever could. The number of films he's been in, »

Comic-Con: 'Kingsman: The Secret Service' Interviews with Samuel L. Jackson and Colin Firth

26 July 2014 1:16 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Comic-Con 2014 is full of upcoming comic book adaptations, but one of the more unique movies based on an existing title may be Mark Millar's Kingsman: The Secret Service, which finds a rough and tumble street kid being groomed for a super-secret spy organization. Kingsman showed up at Hall H, and we have interview with the entire cast, including Samuel L. Jackson, Colin Firth, Taron Egerton, Sophie Cookson, writer Dave Gibbons and creator Mark Millar all making an appearance on the convention floor.

Kingsman: The Secret Service 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.

Comic-Con 2014: Kingsman: The Secret Service shows key, action-packed scenes

26 July 2014 12:36 PM, PDT | TotalFilm | See recent TotalFilm news »

Spy caper Kingsman: The Secret Service blew the doors off Comic-Con’s Hall H with a storming presentation on Friday 25 July, showcasing two big, slick action sequences. Comic creator Mark Millar hosted the panel, and talked about missing the fun in modern spy movies, laughing, “When Bond kills a guy now, he cries in the shower about it afterwards.” Director Matthew Vaughn prepared a video intro for the crowd with Mark Hamill in tow. Vaughn wore a Kick-Ass mask, and after a brief intro, he spun the camera to reveal Hamill wearing a...

First Look at Mark Hamill in Kingsman: The Secret Service

26 July 2014 11:00 AM, PDT | GeekTyrant | See recent GeekTyrant news »

Super Hero Hype

We got to see some extremely fun new footage from Matthew Vaughn's upcoming spy thriller Kingsman: The Secret Service. The footage included a ridiculously action-packed scene that involved a secret agent trying to interrogate a character in the film played by Mark Hamill (Star Wars). It was really cool to see Hamill up on the big screen again. It got me even more excited to see him in Star Wars: Episode VII

Unfortunately, the clip hasn't been released online yet, but we do have a photo of Hamill with the films' star Colin Firth, who's obviously not very happy with him. I've included a few other photos for you to check out as well. 

The movie also stars Samuel L. JacksonMichael Caine, and Taron Egerton. The story is based on the comic book by Mark Millar (Kick-Ass) and Dave Gibbons (Watchmen). It tells the story »

26 July 2014 9:37 AM, PDT | EW - Inside Movies | See recent EW.com - Inside Movies news »

Few actors have a history with Comic-Con as long as Samuel L. Jackson. A fixture of the convention ever since he played Mace Windu in the Star Wars prequel trilogy, Jackson has come back year after year, usually with another comic-book role under his belt each time. This time around, it’s Kingsman: The Secret Service, based on a comic by Mark Millar and Dave Gibbons. Jackson swung by the EW Hideout with co-star Sofia Boutella to talk a bit about their villainous roles and why he wants to do a Nick Fury solo movie. Check it out below: »

26 July 2014 7:26 AM, PDT | LatinoReview | See recent LatinoReview news »

Once again, we have the fantastic, the indomitable, the flying-fingered Jeri Jacqui! on the transcripts!

Some good stuff from yesterday. Since I was on the Maze Runner set (report here), I've read the book and have been itching to see what Wes Ball made of it. They showed it to some fans earlier in the week and it got some good twitter buzz.

Let's check out what Fox offered yesterday at Sdcc!

Maze Runner

Wes Ball (director)

James Dashner (author)

Will Poulter - Gally

Kaya Scodelario - Teresa

Dylan O’Brien - Thomas

Ralph Garman  (Mod): Please welcome director Wes Ball, author James Dashner, Will Poulter, Kaya Scodelario and Dylan O’Brien. Dylan, as Thomas, an actor tends to want to use his environment etc. and you have none of those advantages with this character.

Dylan: Yes, there isn’t that much to go off of. Taking it in »

The Comic-Con content is coming at us like a pissed off raccoon hanging onto a walking tree. The latest bits to arrive are some new images from Kingsman Secret Service, including some behind the scenes coverage with Matthew Vaughn, Samuel L Jackson, Colin Firth and Sofia Boutella. The movie arrives in October around the world (Oct 17th Ireland & UK / Oct 24th USA) and follows the journey of Eggsy, a young man who’s reluctantly signed up for a spot of employment with a super-secret spy agency. It’s based on Mark Millar’s comic book, Secret Service and while it sounds like a loose rehash of Wanted (also from Millar), with the likes of Vaughn directing, we could be in for a treat!

If you read Mark Millar.s graphic novel The Secret Service, you knew that Mark Hamill plays a small but significant role at the start of the story.

‘Secret Service’: Mark Millar Says Colin Firth is the James Bond That’s Cool

25 July 2014 7:56 PM, PDT | ScreenRant.com | See recent Screen Rant news »

Following the success of Kick-Ass, director Matthew Vaughn and writer Mark Millar are preparing to release their next collaboration - Kingsman: The Secret Service. The film follows Harry Hart (Colin Firth) – who helps turn delinquent teenager Gary “Eggsy” Unwin (Taron Egerton) into a new spy recruit and bring him into the world of espionage. However, even though Eggsy is featured heavily in the trailers and serves as the inlet to the world of Kingsman, the most talked-about aspect of the project is Colin Firth’s move from romantic comedies and historical dramas to espionage action.

After three decades on the stage and screen, Firth has racked up enormous critical ...

Fox at Comic-Con: James Bond Is Whack, We're Making Movies With Balls (and Jokes)

25 July 2014 7:26 PM, PDT | The Wrap | See recent The Wrap news »

Ian Fleming‘s James Bond books and a plethora of young adult novels have delivered billions of dollars at the box office for Hollywood, but filmmakers at Comic-Con think they can improve upon those meek film adaptations. “Kingsman: The Secret Service,” an adaptation of Mark Millar's comic book, is a “spy movie for people who find spy movies just a little bit boring,” Millar told the crowd in Hall H on Friday at the 20th Century Fox panel. Millar lamented the brooding, modern incarnation of Bond, as played by Daniel Craig. “When Bond kills a guy he cries in the shower about. »

New Stills From Matthew Vaughn's Kingman: The Secret Service

16 July 2014 10:05 AM, PDT | ComicBookMovie.com | See recent ComicBookMovie news »

Based upon the acclaimed comic book and directed by Matthew Vaughn (Kick Ass, X-Men First Class), Kingsman: The Secret Service 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. Matthew Vaughn’s big screen adaptation of Mark Millar (Kick-Ass) and Dave Gibbons’ (Watchmen)The Secret Service has so far been received very well by those who have seen footage at a number of events, and we now have some brand new stills from the movie. It’s hard to tell how much the story has changed in its transition from page to screen, but there do appear to be a few notable character alterations or additions. Regardless, the story – Colin Firth’s Bond-like agent teaches his rough around the edges nephew (Taron Egerton) to »

The making of Kingsman: The Secret Service | A spy movie game changer?

16 July 2014 9:00 AM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

Matthew Vaughn has become something of a go-to filmmaker for quality comic book movies, having worked on the well-received X-Men: First Class and the adaptation of Mark Millar and John Romita Jr's offbeat superhero adventure Kick-Ass.

Now he's back with Kingsman: The Secret Service, based on a concept he and Millar hatched together. Millar and Watchmen co-creator Dave Gibbons have already published the story as a comic book, and now Vaughn is working on the film version, which is less an adaptation than his own imagining of the original idea.

Vaughn has attracted a top cast, including Colin Firth and Mark Strong (who appeared together in a very different take on the spy genre, Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy) as well as Samuel L Jackson, Michael Caine and newcomer Taron Egerton.

The film centres around council estate kid Eggsy (Egerton), a young tearaway bailed out of jail by his late father's »
