Colin Firth leads the spy game in new Kingsman: The Secret Service trailer

23 September 2014 1:02 PM, PDT | Cineplex | See recent Cineplex news »

Move over, James Bond.  There’s a new super suave and just as Britishly-accented spy in a tailored suit heading your way.

Colin Firth stars as Harry Hart, a veteran secret service agent who takes a young, troubled upstart  (Taron Egerton) under his dapper wing to teach him the ways of the spy in the upcoming action-comedy Kingsman: The Secret Service.  Based on the comic book series by Dave Gibbons and Mark Millar, not much has been released about the film’s plot, but from what we can see in the trailer, Samuel L. Jackson wants to bring a world of hurt to the Kingsman society and the greater population.  And he just might succeed thanks to the help of his henchwoman (Sofia Boutella) who happens to have knives instead of feet.  That’s right.  Knives.  For feet.

Firth isn’t about to let the young upstarts of the secret »

Check Out Colin Firth as an Action Star!

23 September 2014 11:21 AM, PDT | BuzzSugar | See recent BuzzSugar news »

Another movie based on a comic book is coming at you, and this one has Colin Firth! He stars as a secret service agent who recruits a mixed-up young kid (Taron Egerton) in Kingsman: The Secret Service. Director Matthew Vaughn (X-Men: First Class) actually cowrote the comic book with his Kick-Ass collaborator Mark Millar, so it should be a pretty faithful adaptation. It's cool to see Colin Firth fling a beer mug at a guy using an umbrella handle, especially when it's set to a new track from Iggy Azalea and Ellie Goulding. Have I mentioned Samuel L. Jackson plays a ridiculous-looking villain? This is a must watch. The movie is set for a Feb. 13 release date, so stay tuned for more footage and pictures until then! »

"Kick-Ass 3": 'Hit-Girl' Becomes 'Hit-Woman'

23 September 2014 8:45 AM, PDT | SneakPeek | See recent SneakPeek news »

"Kick-Ass" and "Secret Service" creator Mark Millar has confirmed there will be a third "Kick-Ass" movie to complete the trilogy.

The first "Kick-Ass" feature released in 2010 on a budget of $30 million, earned $100 million world-wide, then sold over 1 million DVDs, scoring an additional $24 million. "Kick-Ass 2" on a budget of $28 million, released in 2013, earned $63 million world-wide plus an additional $15 million in DVD sales.

Although the numbers are not blockbuster, there is a dedicated fan-base including director Quentin Tarantino, that supports Chloë Grace Moretz' portrayal as young female vigilante 'Hit-Girl'.

"I'd always planned it as three books and three movies," said Millar about "Kick-Ass 3".

Kingsman: The Secret Service Continues to Impress in New Trailer

23 September 2014 8:38 AM, PDT | Cinelinx | See recent Cinelinx news »

An all new movie trailer for the upcoming adaptation of Mark Millar's comic book series, Kingsman: The Secret Service, has landed and it continues to look amazing.  While some of the footage has been seen before in conventions, that doesn't prevent the new trailer from standing out.  

I really like this trailer.  I like it a lot actually.  What has me so interested in this film, is that it's taking a lot of traditional movie tropes and ideas, and twisting them around.  Sure, we've all seen the well-dressed super spy with various gadgets, but this is a different take on that.  Instead of being a lone gunmen, we get to see him be a team player and taking someone else under his wing.  On top of that, you have the overt comic book attributes and villains.  While we've seen these ideas before, they're blended together in all new ways. »

Kingsman: The Secret Service - New Action-Packed Trailer

23 September 2014 7:20 AM, PDT | GeekTyrant | See recent GeekTyrant news »

20th Century Fox has released an awesome new trailer for Matthew Vaughn's new film Kingsman: The Secret Service. The trailer features loads of new adrenaline-fueled footage, and it features a new song by Iggy Azaela. It also looks like there are still some unfinished special effects — at least I hope they are unfinished. Regardless, the flick still looks like it will be a ridiculously good time.

The movie is based on the comic book created by Mark Millar and Dave Gibbons, and 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."

The movie basically comes from the same team of talent that gave us Kick-Ass and X-Men: First Class. It stars Colin Firth, Michael Caine, Taron Egerton, and Samuel L. Jackson. Kingsman: The Secret Service »

Colin Firth teaches manners in new Kingsman: The Secret Service trailer

23 September 2014 1:45 AM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

Matthew Vaughn's Kingsman: The Secret Service has released a new trailer.

The trailer spotlights Colin Firth's Harry Hart bar room brawl from the spy action comedy.

The film centres around the older spy, who enlists his late colleague's shiftless son Eggsy (Taron Egerton) into the international spy ring.

The young man proves a talented pupil, but will it be enough to stop a global threat by the villain Valentine (Samuel L Jackson)?

Mark Strong and Michael Caine also feature in the 20th Century Fox film.

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

The story was created by Vaughn and Mark Millar, who adapted the story into a comic with Dave Gibbons.

Kingsman: The Secret Service will be released on February 5, 2015 in the UK and February 13 in the Us. »

New Trailer For Kingsman: The Secret Service

23 September 2014 12:15 AM, PDT | www.themoviebit.com | See recent TheMovieBit news »

The latest trailer for Kingsman: The Secret Service has come online, and I have to say Matthew Vaughn's adaption of the comic book he and Mark Millar co-created looks pretty damn good! Teaming up with script writer Jane Goldman (after Kick-Ass, Stardust, and X-Men: First Class), Kingsman, just like Kick-Ass, sees Vaughn putting his own inimitable stamp on the spy genre, with Colin Firth, in full on bad ass mode (yes, really) as the old school, veteran spy taking Taron Egerton's street kid under his wing. Throw in plenty of action, dry British wit, and Samuel L. Jackson as a pretty fun villain, and Kingsman: The Secret Service should be high on your must-watch list. Released: 5th February 2015 (Irl/U.K.)/ 13th February 2015 (U.S.) »

New trailer for Kingsman: The Secret Service

22 September 2014 10:32 PM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

From the X-Men: First Class/Kick-Ass team comes the film of Dave Gibbons' & Mark Millar's Kingsman: The Secret Service. Here's the trailer.

If the original plan had stayed in tact, we'd be weeks away from seeing Kingsman: The Secret Service. 20th Century Fox has since put the movie back to February 13th 2015 - it's to do battle with Fifty Shades Of Grey - yet as this new trailer demonstrates, there's a lot to look forward to here.

Colin Firth, Samuel L Jackson and Michael Caine lead the grown-ups, in a film that tells the story of how a top secret spy organisation recruits a raw street kid to basically be the next James Bond. Matthew Vaughn - of Kick-Ass, Stardust and X-Men: First Class vintage - is directing, with Jane Goldman on scripting duties with him (adapting the comic book work of Mark Millar and Dave Gibbons).

New Trailer For Kingsman: The Secret Service

22 September 2014 9:16 PM, PDT | EmpireOnline | See recent EmpireOnline news »

We’ve already had one full trailer for Matthew Vaughn’s latest Mark Millar adaptation, Kingsman: The Secret Service. You might remember that we had the director himself taking us through that first look. Here comes a second promo, which features a few new scenes. Colin Firth stars as Harry Hart, a suited, booted and immaculately mannered gentleman spy, one of the finest that bespoke espionage agency the Kingsmen has to offer. He takes young, chav-tastic upstart Gary “Eggsy” Unwin (Taron Egerton) under his wing after spotting real potential in the young man.The agency could use some fresh blood, particularly with the diabolic, operatic Valentine (Samuel L. Jackson clearly having a ball chewing the scenery as a flamboyant Bond-throwback villain) launching a terrifying scheme to change the world by nefarious means.With the likes of Michael Caine, Mark Hamill, Sofia Boutella, Sophie Cookson and Vaughn stalwart Mark Strong in the cast, »

‘Kingsman: The Secret Service’ Trailer #2: Manners Maketh Man

22 September 2014 8:08 PM, PDT | ScreenRant.com | See recent Screen Rant news »

Kingsman: The Secret Service is the second film on which director Matthew Vaughn has teamed up with comic book writer Mark Millar – the first was Kick-Ass – and the third based directly on one of the author’s books – the other was Wanted, directed by Timur Bekmambetov. Kingsman: The Secret Service follows Gary “Eggsy” Unwin (Taron Egerton), who is introduced to the secret world of espionage by Harry Hart (Colin Firth). Though Egerton was the main focus of the film’s first trailer, Millar spoke at San Diego Comic-Con this year that Firth’s character allowed the actor “to do some cool stuff.”

In fact, Firth’s jump from romantic comedies and historical dramas has been the most talked about aspect of Kingsman: The Secret Service. For those that may have doubted the actor’s ability to play a character ...

Colin Firth Lets off Steam in New Kingsman Trailer

22 September 2014 8:01 PM, PDT | Beyond Hollywood | See recent Beyond Hollywood news »

Let’s face it, if you can turn Colin Firth into a badass super spy, you’re obviously a very talented bloke. Which I guess “X-Men: First Class” director Matthew Vaughn is, because he seems to have done just that with “Kingsman: The Secret Service,” based on the comic book by Scottish writer Mark Millar (the dude who gave us “Wanted” and “Kick-Ass”). In this one, Firth faces off against a cussing Samuel L. Jackson, which is to say, Firth faces off against Samuel L. Jackson. And there’s a douchey British kid in there somewhere doing something, and looking like a total douche. Check out the new trailer for the film below, check it outers. 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 »

New Kingsman: The Secret Service Trailer Lets Colin Firth Teach Manners and Kick Ass

22 September 2014 6:57 PM, PDT | Collider.com | See recent Collider.com news »

20th Century Fox released a new Kingsman: The Secret Service trailer.  The story centers on "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."  The clip devotes about a minute (forever in trailer time) to Colin Firth kicking ass with spy gadgets in a pub.  The remainder is packed with great-looking action and a handful of funny Samuel L. Jackson lines.  I had been overlooking Kingsman to date, but this trailer is a great reminder that one should always look forward to the latest from director Matthew Vaughn (X-Men: First Class) Jane Goldman and Vaughn adapted the script based on the comic book by Mark Millar and Dave GibbonsMichael Caine and Taron Egerton also star in the February 13 release.  Click here for our interview with Firth and Jackson »

‘Kingsman: The Secret Service': Hot Trailer

22 September 2014 6:00 PM, PDT | Deadline New York | See recent Deadline New York news »

It’s been four months since Fox laid the first trailer on us, now it’s time for Round 2. Based on the comic series by Kick-Ass creator Mark Millar and Dave Gibbons, Kingsman: The Secret Service earned strong responses with sneaks at CinemaCon and WonderCon and also got some face time at Comic-Con. The stylishly comic espionage actioner follows a veteran secret agent (Colin Firth) who leads a young protege (Taron Egerton) into the shadowy business. The kid gets into the agency’s ultra-competitive training program just as a twisted tech genius threatens the world. Fox has shifted the release date a few times, last month settling on Valentine’s Day weekend to counterprogram that Fifty Shades Of Grey thing. Samuel L. Jackson and Michael Caine also star. Matthew Vaughn, who helmed Kick-Ass and X-Men: First Class, directs Kingsman from a script he wrote with Jane Goldman. Yes, that’s »
