'Kingsman' Deleted Scene Features a Young Michael Caine

24 February 2015 1:17 PM, PST | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Kingsman: The Secret Service is well on its way to being one of 2015's early box office hits, already taking in more than $155 million worldwide in just over one week in release. We reported last week that director Matthew Vaughn is already formulating ideas for Kingsman 2, but today we have images from one Kingsman: The Secret Service deleted scene that sadly wasn't included in the theatrical cut. U.K. visual effects house Jellyfish Pictures has posted two intriguing photos from a scene involving Michael Caine's Arthur, that made him look 40 years younger through VFX. Here's an excerpt from the Jellyfish website.

"Jellyfish worked on the VFX for the movie including a complex sequence involving Michael Caine looking 40 years younger."

While no specific details were given about the scene, Kingsman: The Secret Service comic book creator Mark Millar confirmed that the scene was set in 1975, and that it was cut because director Matthew Vaughn thought, »

Young Michael Caine Featured In Kingsman: The Secret Service Deleted Scene

24 February 2015 12:20 PM, PST | ComicBookMovie.com | See recent ComicBookMovie news »

It's not clear how the scene you see below would have fit into Matthew Vaughn's Kingsman: The Secret Service, but comic book writer Mark Miller has confirmed their legitimacy as you can see below. They come from a VFX site (via Ain't It Cool) who specify that they "worked on the VFX for the movie including a complex sequence involving Michael Caine looking 40 years younger." I'd say they did a great job! The scene was obviously finished and cut from the theatrical version, so it will no doubt be included on the Blu-ray. It should be interesting to see what it involved anyway!  As great as this scene was, like the extra Hit-Girl training in KA1, Matthew felt it pulled the movie's pacing sideways & he was right. — Mark Millar (@mrmarkmillar) February 24, 2015 »

"Kingsman: The Secret Service" - 'The Good, The Bad and The Ugly'

23 February 2015 1:44 PM, PST | SneakPeek | See recent SneakPeek news »

From "The Good TheBad And TheUgly.Ca, Sneak Peek '...the good, the bad and the ugly..." in director Matthew Vaughn's "Kingsman: The Secret Service", starring Colin Firth:

Michael Stevens for 'The Good' :

"Based on the 'graphic' graphic novel series by Mark Millar of "Kick-Ass" fame, director Matthew Vaughn's amusing take on the spy-film genre, takes delight in adapting the story of a gentlemen-run clandestine organization that recruits a 'Marty McFly'-like son (Taron Egerton) of a top field agent killed in the line of duty...

"...into a "My Fair Lady" transformative, ultra-competitive training program...

"...while a global threat emerges from a lisping, tech criminal named 'Valentine' (Samuel L. Jackson).

"Colin Firth as 'Agent Harry Hart' aka ''Galahad', steals most of the film's thunder...

"... as a slimmer, dapper version of brolly-swinging Brit super spy 'Steed' from the 1960's "Avengers" TV series...

"...with deadly gadgets and expert fighting skills, »

Taron Egerton To Play Young Han Solo In Standalone Star Wars Film?

21 February 2015 11:58 AM, PST | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

2015 is Taron Egerton’s year. After a huge starring role in Kingsman: The Secret Service, which has created a ton of buzz for the young actor, his star is starting to rise considerably and if recent rumors are to believed, he might be up for what could be the biggest role of his career.

According to UK tabloid The Sun, the actor is being eyed to play young Han Solo in one of the standalone Star Wars films. Now, as we have already learnt, Gareth Edwards will be directing the first standalone entry and that will be hitting theatres in December 2016. In 2017 though, we’ll be getting the second one, which we believe Josh Trank is handling. It’s this film that Egerton would star in, as the plot will, apparently, focus on “how Harrison Ford’s iconic character got the Millennium Falcon as well as show how he fell out with Jabba the Hutt. »

'Star Wars' Spinoff Wants 'Kingsman' Star as Han Solo?

21 February 2015 11:50 AM, PST | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

The Untitled Gareth Edwards Directed Star Wars Spin-Off is expected to start shooting in the coming months, as we head into spring. The film will reportedly overlap with Spectre shooting at London's Pinewood Studios sometime in late March or early April. Which means an official casting announcement should be made soon. In the meantime, we have a new rumor that reportedly already knows who will play a young Han Solo in this first standalone adventure. If we're to believe The Sun, it will be Kingsman: The Secret Service breakout star Taron Egerton.

Gary Whitta wrote the first draft of the Untitled Gareth Edwards Directed Star Wars Spin-Off, with Chris Weitz coming on for a new draft. No story details have been revealed, and the rumors regarding the plot have been a little erratic. Way back when these spinoffs where first announced, it was believed that the first would follow Han Solo, »

Kingsman: Bond with a Gangster Swag (Featuring Brad Allen “Gorgeous”)

21 February 2015 9:22 AM, PST | AsianMoviePulse | See recent AsianMoviePulse news »

Kingsman: the Secret Service is the fifth directorial effort from director Matthew Vaughan and yet another film that I thoroughly enjoyed. I should mention that I have been a fan of Mark Vaughan’s work since Layer Cake, one of my favorite British gangster movies and Vaughan’s first feature. So I admit I’m a little biased, I loved Kick Ass, I really loved X-Men: First Class, and I was so excited when I heard about this film. Yes, I know I left out Stardust, yes, it’s because I really didn’t like it.

Based on yet another comic by Mark Millar, Kingsman is a breathtaking re-imagination of the whole British spy genre…and then some. Interestingly enough this is not the first Mark Millar project Vaughan has helmed, the first being Kick –Ass 1 (the better one). Vaughan is also credited as “co-plotter” on The Secret Service, the »

"Captain America: Civil War" Updates

20 February 2015 1:20 PM, PST | SneakPeek | See recent SneakPeek news »

Actress Scarlett Johansson will return to the Marvel Cinematic Universe as Russian agent 'Black Widow', with actor Daniel Brühl ("Inglourious Basterds") as a Marvel Comics' super-villain in Marvel Studios' third "Captain America" solo feature, "Captain America: Civil War":

Brühl will play Third Reich maniac 'Baron Zemo'.

The original Marvel Comics' 'Zemo' was one of the top scientists in the Third Reich, creating weapons of mass destruction, including a large-scale death ray cannon, a disintegration pistol and androids of considerable strength and invulnerability, resulting in Zemo becoming one of the most reviled figures throughout Europe.

In an attempt to regain a level of anonymity, Zemo began wearing a reddish-pink hood over his face as he continued to build weapons.

His scientific breakthroughs also included 'Adhesive X', which after a confrontation with Captain America, bonded to his face, quickly seeping inside and permanently attaching the hood to his flesh, »

Kingsman: The Secret Service Movie Review

20 February 2015 7:39 AM, PST | ShockYa | See recent ShockYa news »

Title: Kingsman: The Secret Service Director: Matthew Vaughn Starring: Colin Firth, Samuel L. Jackson, Mark Strong, Taron Egerton, Michael Caine. ‘Kingsman: The Secret Service’ is a spy action comedy film based on the comic book ‘The Secret Service’ created by Dave Gibbon and Mark Millar. The story feels like a James Bond parody, starring members of a historical gentleman’s club who recruit 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 screenplay by Jane Goldman and director Matthew Vaughn is stylish, cheeky, subversive and above all utterly amusing. All acts of intense violence are so  [ Read More ]

Matthew Vaughn defends That joke at the end of Kingsman: The Secret Service, “some bloody feminists are accusing me of being a misogynist”

19 February 2015 2:04 AM, PST | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Spoilers for Kingsman: The Secret Service, obviously…

Kingsman: The Secret Service is certainly doing better than many expected, having pulled in around $88 million worldwide amongst several praising reviews from critics and moviegoers. But if there is one thing that has split audiences, it was that joke at the end of the movie.

As a reminder, at the end of the movie Eggsy discovers the captured Princess Tilde who promises him anal sex if he comes back to rescue her. Which, he later does. While it has upset quite a few people who have seen the movie, Matthew Vaughn has defended the joke.

“If you’ve noticed, this is my Spinal Tap of trying to find 11 with every scene,” Vaughn told EW. “What happened there was I studied all the old movies, especially the Bond ones. At the end of Moonraker, he’s floating around in space on Dr. Goodhead, and they say, »

'Kingsman' Director Defends Controversial Ending Joke

18 February 2015 7:16 PM, PST | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Be warned, there will be Spoilers below for Kingsman: The Secret Service if you haven't yet seen it in theaters, so read on at your own risk. The adaptation of Mark Millar's comic more than held its own against the blockbuster Fifty Shades of Grey, taking second place with a healthy $35.6 million, along with high praise from the nation's critics. There is one point of contention among several fans, a sexual joke at the very end of the movie, that hasn't been received nearly as well as the movie itself. During an interview with Entertainment Weekly, director Matthew Vaughn addressed these criticisms and defended the scene. This is your last chance to avoid spoilers, so don't read any further if you haven't seen Kingsman: The Secret Service.

Towards the very end of the film, young Eggsy (Taron Egerton) approaches Princess Tilde (Hanna Alstr&#246m), who is one of the »

‘Mph #5′ concludes the series with a flurry of plot contrivances

18 February 2015 10:13 AM, PST | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

Mph #5

Written by Mark Millar

Art by Duncan Fegredo

Colors by Peter Doherty and Mike Spicer

Published by Image Comics

In Mph #5, Mark Millar and Duncan Fegredo turn to time travel to fix everyone’s problems and give every semi-likable character some semblance of a happy ending. The issue begins with Chevy, who seemed like the de facto hero for most the series, completely misusing his super speed powers and attack not only the government, but also his friends Rosa and Roscoe as well as random bystanders. However, the possible lesson of the corrupting power of wealth is all but brushed aside midway through the comic, and Chevy ends up looking like a one-dimensional psychopath, who makes even the jowly Fed Agent Cutler look like a sympathetic (and even cool) character.

Duncan Fegredo’s gritty, grimy art style fits the subject matter and ultraviolence of the first part of Mph »

Box Office Democracy: “Kingsman: The Secret Service”

17 February 2015 1:00 PM, PST | Comicmix.com | See recent Comicmix news »

Kingsman: The Secret Service is, hopefully, a watershed moment for spy action movies. Much in the way The Bourne Identity did in 2002, Kingsman has such a fresh new take on the genre that it begs to be the new standard these films are compared to. Kingsman could have so easily been the lazy bit of satire I feared it would be in the run up to the movie and it avoided nearly all of the pitfalls that could have felled it. It did step in to one big pit and while it put a bit of a crimp in my enjoyment of the movie it was at least a spectacular and bold piece of failure and I suppose tasteless and vexing is always better than boring.

Matthew Vaughn directs action sequences in Kingsman that are nothing short of brilliant. He shoots action with wider angles and without cuts like they »

There is no Kingsman 2, at least right now. Matthew Vaughn‘s film Kingsman: The Secret Service opened this past weekend, and did solid business behind Fifty Shades of Grey. We don’t know of sequel plans as yet for the film based on the comic book series by Mark Millar and Dave Gibbons. But there’s always a […]

Will Colin Firth Return for 'Kingsman 2'?

16 February 2015 2:26 PM, PST | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Be warned, if you didn't watch Kingsman: The Secret Service this weekend, there will be a Big Spoiler below, so read on at your own risk. Even though the adaptation of Mark Millar's comic book came in second place to box office juggernaut Fifty Shades of Grey, Kingsman: The Secret Service still took in an impressive $35.6 million over the weekend. While a sequel hasn't been officially green lit by 20th Century Fox yet, writer-director Matthew Vaughn revealed in an interview with USA Today that Colin Firth's Harry Hart may still come back for the follow-up. The Spoilers begin now, so here's your last chance to stop reading.

Towards the end of Kingsman: The Secret Service, Harry Hart takes out numerous adversaries in a church, who are all affected by technology invented by the nefarious Valentine (Samuel L. Jackson), which lowers inhibitions and creates incredibly violent behavior. Sadly, at the end of this scene, »

Matthew Vaughn's X-Men: Dofp would have featured a younger Wolverine

16 February 2015 12:09 AM, PST | JoBlo.com | See recent JoBlo news »

As most of you know, although Matthew Vaughn did write an X-men: Days Of Future Past script treatment, he decided to direct Kingsman: The Secret Service instead of a follow-up to his X-men: First Class. I'm definitely not complaining, since his film adaptation of the Mark Millar comic ended up being awesome, but how different would Vaughn's X-men: Dofp have been compared to the movie we got from Bryan Singer?

Review – Kingsman: The Secret Service

15 February 2015 1:38 PM, PST | Comicmix.com | See recent Comicmix news »

The rule of thumb in screenwriting is never to directly reference, even whimsically, a film which you are attempting to tribute or homage, for fear the comparison will leave your film lacking.  Kingsman: the Secret Service makes numerous references to Bond and classic-era spy films, and not only holds its own against them, but could inspire a resurgence of the bigger than life style of espionage films

Kingsman: The Secret Service

Directed by Matthew Vaughan

Script by Jane Goldman and Matthew Vaughan, from the comic by Mark Millar, Matthew Vaughan and Dave Gibbons

Starring Colin Firth, Taron Egerton, Samuel L. Jackson

Mark Millar is doing a damn fine job of creating brilliant little stand-alone comic mini-series that tell a coherent story, and are at the same time far from the standard fare of superhero titles.  They are also almost tailor-made for adaptation into films for those very reasons.  His high-action »
