Most Anticipated Blockbusters of 2015 (That Aren’t Already Hyped to Death)

6 hours ago | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

Especially when it comes to big-budget genre blockbusters, hype has become an inseparable part of movie culture. Trailers, teasers and teasers for trailers, along with a steady drip-feed of news, rumors and inside reports, all these are well-handled tools in Hollywood’s ever-increasing mastery of getting you primed and ready to slap down your money. Add the fact that more and more Hollywood blockbusters are based off beloved properties or tied to ongoing series and yearly top-ten lists of the most anticipated blockbusters or summer movies of the year can tend to look a bit samey. Oh really, you’re excited for Star Wars Episode 7? Well of course you are, it’s Star Wars Episode 7. Saying you’re excited to see it is like saying you enjoy oxygen or puppydog kisses.

Most of the most anticipated movies of the year, quite frankly, don’t need any more hype than they already have. »

Movie Review – Kingsman: The Secret Service (2015)

23 January 2015 9:14 AM, PST | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Kingsman: The Secret Service (2015)

Directed by Matthew Vaughn

Starring Taron Egerton, Colin Firth, Samuel L. Jackson, Mark Strong, Sofia Boutella, Sophie Cookson, Michael Caine, Mark Hamill, Tom Prior and Jack Davenport

Synopsis:

A veteran secret agent takes a young upstart under his wing.

Marking the second time Matthew Vaughn has directed a comic book created by Mark Millar, Kingsman: The Secret Service is a ridiculously fun movie with a wonderful sense of comic violence and a sweet heart. It’s a film that never takes itself too seriously, but treats its subject matter with respect to ensure the best cinematic experience. It may have some flaws, but there is so much to love about Kingsman: The Secret Service that they can be overlooked. Or shot at.

Matthew Vaughn left X-Men: Days of Future Past to direct Kingsman: The Secret Service based on a script he wrote with writing partner Jane Goldman »

Mark Millar interview: Kingsman, Fox's Marvel films

23 January 2015 2:49 AM, PST | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Comic book writer Mark Millar talks to us about his work on Kingsman: The Secret Service, storytelling and more...

The latest big screen adaptation of Mark Millar's work, Kingsman: The Secret Service, arrives in UK cinemas this week. It follows the likes of Kick-AssKick-Ass 2 and Wanted to the screen, and Millar also advises Fox on its series of Marvel films. He spared us some time for a chat about his films, storytelling, auctioning names off for charity, and specifically about Kingsman itself.

Here's how it went...

To what extent would you say this is a political story?

Funny you should say that. We were chatting about this earlier, and my friends who are left-wing so it as a left-wing political story about a guy from nothing showing that he’s just as good as people who had everything, and he’s even being better than them by the end. »

Mark Millar on Josh Trank and His Fantastic Four Reboot

21 January 2015 3:13 PM, PST | GeekTyrant | See recent GeekTyrant news »

A couple years ago, 20th Century Fox brought on comic book writer Mark Millar as a consultant to help them develop the Marvel Comics properties that they hold the rights to. Millar is currently out doing press rounds for Matthew Vaughn's Kingsman: The Secret Service (which is based on his comic), and in an interview with Sky Movies, he was asked about Josh Trank's Fantastic Four reboot. There's been a lot of talk regarding this movie lately. We've heard that the film is a big mess, and that the studio executives aren't happy with how it turned out. Then screenwriter and producer Simon Kinberg clarified some things about that, and said the first trailer will be attached to Kingsman: The Secret Service. Now Millar comes to the movie's defense, saying that it's in good hands with Trank and he thinks the director is going to deliver a great film. »

Mark Millar Comments On Josh Trank's Fantastic Four

20 January 2015 7:30 PM, PST | ComicBookMovie.com | See recent ComicBookMovie news »

Since Matthew Vaughn's Kingsman: The Secret Service is yet another film that is based on a Mark Millar comic book series, Millar is out doing press for the film. During an interview with Sky Movies, Millar explained why he believes 20th Century Fox's Fantastic Four is in "good hands" with director Josh Trank. That's nice to hear since so many rumors are floating out there right now about how Trank has been a negative to production. Check out the video below, or read the transcript, which is also below. Josh Trank the guy who is directing it, is a really smart guy. He and I spent a wee bit of time together when I was first doing this job, about a year and a half ago. And, what I think Fox is doing is very clever. They'll get a great director on board. Like, a lot of people trust »

Mark Millar Talks About 'Fantastic Four'

20 January 2015 6:05 PM, PST | LatinoReview | See recent LatinoReview news »

The Fantastic Four reboot is one of the big enigmas of this year since we haven’t seen any promotional material about it. Many are saying that the film is in a dire state and that it’ll be a bomb but others have defended the film and praising the way director Josh Trank (Chronicle) has taken the popular heroes in a completely new direction. One of those voices is comic book legend Mark Millar (Kick-Ass, Wanted) who, in the video below, defends Trank and his vision. Check it out:

Millar is a very respected writer and to have him praise Trank, is a vote of confidence for a project that for now is shrouded in mystery. Stay tuned for additional details.

The Fantastic Four is set for release on August 7, 2015.

Exclusive "How to be a Kingsman" featurettes for Matthew Vaughn's new movie

20 January 2015 6:07 AM, PST | JoBlo.com | See recent JoBlo news »

Although the first couple of trailers for Matthew Vaughn's Kingsman: The Secret Service were great, people didn't start to get really excited about the upcoming film until early reviews (you can read Eric Walkuski's here) started to roll in. The movie version of the Mark Millar comic will probably get destroyed at the box office when it opens against Fifty Shades Of Grey in a few weeks (Damn you Valentine's Day!), but I think we all know which one will end up »

Sounds Like We'll See The First Trailer For The Fantastic Four Sooner Than We Thought

16 January 2015 5:50 PM, PST | ComicBookMovie.com | See recent ComicBookMovie news »

Following reports yesterday that The Fantastic Four is in some serious trouble, Simon Kinberg would fire back at those claims by revealing that the first trailer for the movie is set to be attached to Kingsman: The Secret Service. As a result, most of us assumed that we Might get a first look at the movie during this year's Super Bowl, with the trailer itself being released online shortly after.  Well, according to Bleeding Cool, Fox PR got in touch with them to reveal that The Fantastic Four trailer will be in "a majority but not all" UK cinemas with the Mark Millar adaptation when it opens on January 29th. That's two weeks sooner than the UK, and means we will more than likely see it online before the end of this month. In fact, it could end up hitting any day now...thoughts? »

Mark Hamill Talks Kingsman: The Secret Service and Star Wars: The Force Awakens

16 January 2015 8:25 AM, PST | GeekTyrant | See recent GeekTyrant news »

Actor Mark Hamill — who, for those of you who may not know, has had a hell of a career outside the Star Wars films — appears in the upcoming film Kingsman: The Secret Service, and he spoke before a special early screening of the film in Los Angeles last night. SuperheroHype was on the scene, so you can read all of Hamill's quotes there, but I've pulled a few of his most interesting bits of conversation so you can get the gist of what was said below.

On writer Mark Millar asking permission to use his likeness in the Kingsman comic:

“I was a fan of his writing. I heard he wanted to talk to me about something, so I called him. He told me about the comic he was writing… Part of the plot involved kidnapping iconic science fiction actors, believe it or not. He said, ‘It’s sort of a mash-up. »

Exclusive: Mark Millar talks the Fantastic Four reboot, “everything I’ve seen looks good”

15 January 2015 6:31 AM, PST | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Yesterday we brought you the exclusive word from Kingsman: The Secret Service director and The Fantastic Four producer Matthew Vaughn, who has seen the reboot and praised the work of Josh Trank (Chronicle). Today we bring you a snippet from our chat with Mark Millar, whose comic book is the basis for Kingsman: The Secret Service, who gave us his thoughts on the Fantastic Four reboot.

“I’ve seen little bits, but not the full [movie],” Millar told us. “There is a cut, but I haven’t seen it yet”.

“Everything I’ve seen looks good. I think Josh Trank is such a brilliant director that I sort of relaxed about it. I think it will work out good.”

“Fox are very clever [with directors],” Millar added. “They got James Mangold for The Wolverine, they got Matthew [Vaughn] for X-Men: First Class, and then Bryan Singer in for X-Men: Days of Future Past. And »

Matthew Vaughn’s ‘Kingsman’ Was Born in a Pub

14 January 2015 4:58 PM, PST | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

London’s Leicester Square hosted a dapper, very British affair on Wednesday night, when a league of impeccably dressed gentlemen — and accompanying ladies — sauntered along a rain-soaked red carpet for the world premiere of graphic novel adaptation “Kingsman: The Secret Service,” a Generation Y nod to 1960s spy tales.

The “Kingsman” spy alumni Colin Firth, Taron Egerton and Mark Strong gathered, all in suave tailoring, with Sofia Boutella and Sophie Cookson on hand to offer some non-suited glamour.

Even more British than the weather and the slick, Savile Row fashion, was the film’s conception. Helmer Matthew Vaughn divulged that the project came about while he was enjoying a pint in the pub with comic creator Mark Millar.

Millar’s fusion of black comedy and global genocide was precision planned, he disclosed. “When I was a kid, I watched James Bond, and I really wanted to be him. Now you watch James Bond, »

'Kingsman' Clip Shows Colin Firth in an Epic Bar Fight

14 January 2015 11:56 AM, PST | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Fans have seen brief glimpses of the bar fight in 20th Century Fox's upcoming Kingsman: The Secret Service in the previously released trailer, but today, the studio has released a clip showcasing the entire melee, from start to finish. Armed with what appears to be just a simple umbrella (although we quickly learn that it's not), Kingsman agent Harry Hart (Colin Firth) doesn't take too kindly to having his conversation with young Eggsy (Taron Egerton) interrupted by six British thugs, and becomes determined to teach them a lesson in "manners."

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. The plot follows Harry as he tries to give Eggsy a fresh start as a Kingsman recruit. Samuel L. Jackson, Mark Hamill, Michael Caine, »
