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

Matthew Vaughn reveals Kingsman lured him away from X-Men

Kingsman: The Secret Service has premiered an action-packed trailer.

Backed by songs from The Knack and David Bowie, the teaser shows Colin Firth's spy Harry Hart take in Taron Egerton's South London tearaway 'Eggsy' Unwin and bring him through the Kingsman agency's training programme as a global threat emerges.

The action film reunites Kick-Ass director Matthew Vaughn with screenwriter Jane Goldman and Mark Millar, whose comic book (co-created with Dave Gibbons) serves as the basis for the spy thriller.

Samuel L Jackson, Mark Strong, Sophie Cookson and Michael Caine star in Kingsman: The Secret Service, which opens in cinemas on February 12, 2015. »

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 »

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 »

Colin Firth plays Harry Hart, who decides to bring in his juvenile delinquent nephew (Taron Egerton) into this clandestine world full of gadgets and bad guys. This trailer also sets up Samuel L. Jackson's character, Valentine, a twisted tech genius trying to destroy the world.

Four character posters for Matthew Vaughn's Kingsman: The Secret Service have premiered on IMDb showing off a henchwoman with blades for legs, posing in traditional James Bond marketing fashion with a curious highlight right there between her crotch.

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. »

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.) »

Exclusive-ish: new poster for Kingsman: The Secret Service

26 November 2014 5:59 AM, PST | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

We've got our hands on a new poster for Matthew Vaughn's film of Kingsman: The Secret Service. See it here...

The first comic book movie treat of 2015 is set to be Kingsman: The Secret Service. It's based on the comic book by Mark Millar, and the film is directed by Matthew Vaughn (who previously brought Millar's Kick-Ass to the screen). The film stars Colin Firth - in his most action-packed role to date - along with Samuel L Jackson, Michael Caine, Mark Hamill and Jack Davenport.

It also boasts a potentially star-making role from Tarom Egerton as 'Eggsy', who undergoes the special training required to become a Kingsman (think a James Bond-esque school, but more brutal). 

The James Bond tones to the film continue with this exclusive poster, that we've got our paws (haw haw) on here. You can find it below, and the film itself arrives on »

'Kick-Ass' Creator Mark Millar on How to Succeed in Comics and Hollywood

25 November 2014 6:25 AM, PST | The Hollywood Reporter | See recent The Hollywood Reporter news »

If Mark Millar, one of The Hollywood Reporter's most powerful comic writers, has one piece of advice for other writers in Hollywood, it's this: "Be unobtainable." The 44-year-old creator of Wanted, Kick-Ass and next year's Kingsman: The Secret Service practices what he preaches. "I go to L.A. just once a year, and even with the time difference, I never do a call after around 6:30 p.m. U.K. time," he says. "Writers often try to please too much, and I think it makes people take them for granted." With a slate that includes

'Wanted 2' Is Still Happening; Script Not Yet Finished

24 November 2014 1:11 PM, PST | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

While doing press for his upcoming musical Into the Woods, producer Marc Platt offered updates on two of his upcoming projects, the action-packed sequel Wanted 2 and another musical adaptation, Wicked.

Just a few days before Wanted hit theaters in 2008, Mark Millar, who wrote the comic book the film is based on, revealed that a sequel was already in the works, although we haven't heard much on the follow-up in the six years that followed that initial announcement. Marc Platt reveals that the script is still being developed, and it isn't quite there yet. But the sequel will happen nonetheless:

"We have a script that's getting pretty good. To do a sequel when it wasn't really set up for a sequel - one of our main characters dies in it. You don't want to just retread a similar story, but when we get the script to a certain bar, there will be a sequel. »

What's Up With That 'Wanted' Sequel?

24 November 2014 10:39 AM, PST | LatinoReview | See recent LatinoReview news »

Back in 2008, Wanted came out and was a decent hit for Universal. Based on a comic miniseries by Mark Millar and J.G. Jones, the film starred a relatively unknown James McAvoy and managed to turn make $340+ million on a $75 million budget. Ever since, rumblings of a sequel have ranged from "Oh, definitely!" to "We'll see." Well, Coming Soon had a chance to speak with that film's producers and find out what the status of that film is- now that we're six years removed from the original. One of them, Marc Platt, was willing to speak candidly about where they are in that process.

His answers, though, lead me to believe that we're still at the "wait and see" stage and, with so much time having gone by, I get the feeling it would take a major development for this thing to happen.

Wanted 2 producer offers update: "It's coming along"

24 November 2014 3:02 AM, PST | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

Producer Marc Platt has offered an update on Wanted 2.

He revealed that writer Mark Millar is involved in the comic book sequel.

"We have a script that's getting pretty good," Platt told Coming Soon. "To do a sequel when it wasn't really set up for a sequel - one of our main characters dies in it.

"You don't want to just retread a similar story, but when we get the script to a certain bar, there will be a sequel. It's taken a while because it's challenging, as I said, because we lost a main, main character, so where that James McAvoy character goes now... we have good ideas though. It's coming along."

The first film was loosely based on Millar's comic book miniseries, which was set in a world where supervillains had eradicated all superheroes.

"[Millar is] always going to be involved but he's not going to write the screenplay which is far along, »

Wanted 2 still on the cards

23 November 2014 10:42 PM, PST | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Wanted 2 keeps edging closer to actually happening, as producer Marc Platt confirms the script is "getting pretty good"...

From the earliest days of the website we seem to have been reporting on a potential sequel to 2008's surprise hit, Wanted. The original movie starred James McAvoy, Angelina Jolie and Morgan Freeman, with Timur Bekmambetov directing. And the first film ate up $341m at the global box office, Wanted 2 has been on the cards ever since.

However, Wanted 2 appeared to have fallen off-radar in recent years, and we'd assumed that the project had quietly been dropped. Not so though, says producer Marc Platt. "We have a script that’s getting pretty good", he told Coming Soon. "You don’t want to just retread a similar story, but when we get the script to a certain bar, there will be a sequel. It’s taken a while because it’s challenging. »
