The 14 Best Action Movies of 2014

12 hours ago | FilmSchoolRejects.com | See recent FilmSchoolRejects news »

There were some fantastically great action films released in 2014, but 2014 was not a great year for action films. The horror genre had no such shortage (as evidenced by the greatness occupying our list of the year’s best) and you can probably name several comedies that had you busting a gut in 2014, but action films? There weren’t very many, and what there was rarely impressed. But sometimes you find great action in less than great movies, and with that understanding I was able to find 14 movies that fit the bill as the Best Action Films of 2014. Well, almost. 14. Kingsman: The Secret Service (trailer, red band) Fine, I’m starting right out of the gate with a major cheat, but I did say there weren’t a lot of great action movies in 2014 didn’t I? The original trailer for Matthew Vaughn‘s 2015 release didn’t do much for me, but »

"Avengers: Age Of Ultron" - 'Quicksilver'

16 December 2014 7:46 PM, PST | SneakPeek | See recent SneakPeek news »

Take another look @ Marvel Comics' 'Quicksilver', aka 'Pietro Maximoff', played by Aaron Taylor-Johnson ("Kick-Ass") from the set of Marvel Studios' "Avengers: Age Of Ultron":

Debuting in Marvel Comics' 'X-Men' #4 (March 1964), 'Quicksilver' was created by Stan Lee and Jack Kirby, as the son of 'Magneto', twin brother of 'Scarlet Witch' and paternal half-brother of 'Polaris'.

An example of a ruthless villain turned good, the character is first revealed cinematically in a mid-credits scene in Marvel Studios' "Captain America: The Winter Soldier".

"...'Quicksilver' is a mutant capable of moving and thinking at superhuman speeds. Originally capable of running at the speed of sound, the exposure to 'Isotope E' made it possible for the character to run at supersonic speeds of up to 'Mach 10', resisting the effects of friction, reduced oxygen and kinetic impact.

"The character's speed allows him to perform feats such as create cyclone-strength winds, »

Kingsman: The Secret Service - Poster and New Recruits Featurette

15 December 2014 6:00 PM, PST | GeekTyrant | See recent GeekTyrant news »

Here is a new poster and featurette for director Matthew Vaughn’s Kingsman: The Secret Service. I assume those unfamiliar with Vaughn’s previous work (Kick-Ass, Layer Cake) look at this film and have no idea what to make of it. The characters look very over the top, with Samuel L. Jackson as a lisping villain with no stomach for violence, newcomer Taron Egerton as a stereotypical foul-mouthed street kid, and a girl (Sofia Boutella) running around with swords for legs. Despite the campy elements, the movie also seems to take itself quite seriously. The cast is stellar — Colin Firth, Michael Caine, Mark Strong, Mark Hamill; and the action, though uniquely cartoonish, is extremely brutal — watch the featurette below and the red band trailer for a taste. Along with some new footage from the film, the featurette also has interviews with Vaughn and the cast talking about the story.

Henry Jackman Creates An Epic Action Score for The Interview

11 December 2014 3:46 PM, PST | WeAreMovieGeeks.com | See recent WeAreMovieGeeks.com news »

Award-winning composer Henry Jackman delivers an epic score to North Korea’s favorite comedy The Interview, directed by Evan Goldberg and Seth Rogen.

Jackman’s score is ironically-serious and over-the-top, qualities the directors enjoyed from the score for their previous film, This Is The End.

In The Interview, journalists Dave Skylark (James Franco) and Aaron Rapoport (Seth Rogen) land an interview with North Korea’s dictator, Kim Jong Un, for their popular tabloid-tv show. As the duo prepare for their journey, the CIA enlists them to carry out an incredible mission: Assassinate Kim Jong Un.

This film marks the second collaboration between Jackman and the film’s directors Goldberg and Rogen, previously scoring their apocalypse comedy This Is The End.

The Interview opens in theaters on December 25th. The soundtrack will be released on January 13th 2015 by La-La Land Records.

Jackman began his solo career in 2009, and in just five years, »

Titles and descriptions for the first two episodes of Marvel’s Agent Carter

11 December 2014 1:20 PM, PST | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Yesterday we got a new poster for Agent Carter, and now Marvel has released the title and official episode descriptions for the first two instalments of the upcoming eight-part series:

“Now is Not the End”

Peggy is contacted by old acquaintance Howard Stark (Dominic Cooper, Marvel’s “Captain America: The First Avenger”) when he is framed for unleashing his deadliest weapons and can trust no one else. To help Peggy clear Stark’s name, he insists his butler, Edwin Jarvis, be at her beck and call–whether she likes it or not. But the risk is great: If caught, Agent Carter could be targeted as a traitor and spend the rest of her days in prison…or worse.

Bridge and Tunnel

Howard Stark’s deadliest weapon has fallen into enemy hands, and only Agent Carter can recover it. But can she do so before her undercover mission is discovered by »

First Look At Lyndsy Fonseca's 'Angie Martinelli' On Agent Carter Set

10 December 2014 6:04 PM, PST | ComicBookMovie.com | See recent ComicBookMovie news »

It was welcome news when Marvel announced that they had added the very talented Lyndsy Fonseca (Nikita) to the cast of their upcoming mini-series Agent Carter. She is set to play Angie Martinelli, an aspiring actress and friend to Hayley Atwell's Peggy Carter. This won't be Fonseca's first foray into the comic-book genre as she had a prominent role as Katie Deauxma in the first Kick-Ass film as well as a cameo in the sequel, she also most recently starred in the critically acclaimed Nikita where she played the ass-kicking Alexandra Udinov. Earlier today, Fonseca posted a photo of herself from the Agent Carter set and while it doesn't really count as an "official" look, it does give us a look at Fonseca in her '40s era hair and makeup giving us a better idea at what to expect when we see her on screen in January.

Colin Firth plays a dirty James Bond in new red band trailer for delayed 'Kingsman'

10 December 2014 9:37 AM, PST | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

"Kingsman: The Secret Service" is finally ready to save the world. Originally set to open last month, the release date of the 20th Century Fox action-spy-comedy bounced around several times before finally settling on February 2015.  It's been on the radar for some time, so the studio is starting a new trailer campaign to remind viewers of the film's James Bond-on-speed attitude. Adapted from the comic book created by Mark Millar ("Kick-Ass"), "Kingsman" reunites him with writer-director Matthew Vaughn and co-writer Jane Goldman, who also teamed on "X-Men: First Class." As a key member of an outrageous British spy ring that makes 007's MI6 look like a bunch of Cub Scouts, Firth takes a rookie (Taron Egerton) under his wing. Exchanging his "The Avengers" heroics for evil (and his trademark Kangols for various Yankees caps), Samuel L. Jackson plays the bad guy bent on destroying the world.   The latest Nsfw trailer offers plenty of mayhem, »

Watch: Red Band Trailer for 'Kingsman: The Secret Service'

10 December 2014 6:32 AM, PST | Rope of Silicon | See recent Rope Of Silicon news »

Director Matthew Vaughn is returning to the world of comic book author Mark Millar with his latest film. Millar also penned Kick-Ass, which Vaughn turned into a fairly enjoyable film. Kingsman: The Secret Service, which was coauthored by Dave Gibbons, is their next collaboration, and the film just received the red band trailer treatment, which you can all watch below. I am assuming the film involves the Secret Service and British people, as the title would indicate. Samuel L. Jackson shows up with a Yankees cap, and Colin Firth wears a suit. People get shot. It is a light, fluffy action film. What else is there to knowc I cannot imagine this is a deep exploration on the divide between man and nature. I enjoyed Kick-Ass (Kick-Ass 2 on the other hand...), so hopefully, Vaughn can turn another Millar story into something entertaining. The movie is set to be released on »

Colin Firth is A Super Spy in This Red Band 'Kingsman' Trailer

10 December 2014 1:45 AM, PST | Moviefone | See recent Moviefone news »

The spies in "Kingsman: The Secret Service" aren't your typical posh James Bond types, although it's clear that Colin Firth, Mark Strong, and Michael Caine certainly know how to dress for the occasion. Based on the comic by Matthew Vaughn, "Kingsman" has more in common with Vaughn's potty-mouthed "Kick-Ass" heroes than any character cooked up by Ian Fleming.

The newest Kingsman is a young petty criminal named Gary "Eggsy" Unwin, played by Taron Egerton. Although he's used to a life of crime, the fancy gadgets and action-packed adventures of Harry Hart (Firth) and his fellow spies takes some getting used to. In any case, they've got a real problem on their hands with Valentine, an extra-bad baddie with genocide on his mind. (Valentine is played by Samuel L. Jackson with a pretty intense lisp.) It's unclear how closely the movie hews to the graphic novel, but we're hoping it sticks »

New Red-Band Trailer For Kingsman: The Secret Service

10 December 2014 12:43 AM, PST | www.themoviebit.com | See recent TheMovieBit news »

Matthew Vaughn's Kingsman: The Secret Service has dropped a new, slightly Nsfw trailer (with thanks to IGN), packing in a shed load of action, laughs, and plot into just under three minutes. My Fair Lady with a super spy twist, this re-teams the Kick-Ass super team of Vaughn, comic creator Mark Millar, and script writer Jane Goldman, and judging by everything we've seen from this so far, it's going to be a serious amount of fun. Released: 13th February 2015 »

Watch: 'Kingsman: Secret Service' Red Band Trailer is Bloody Fun

9 December 2014 10:19 PM, PST | firstshowing.net | See recent FirstShowing.net news »

"I look like I give a fuck?" There's a part of me that's worried that Kingsman: The Secret Service is going to bomb when it hits theaters in February next year, but the latest red band trailer shows off a fun spy flick that looks so crazy that it just might work. Samuel L. Jackson is doing his best impression of himself as a James Bond villain with a lisp, Mark Strong is having some fun and Colin Firth looks like a real ass-kicker. And if this trailer is any indicator, newcomer Taron Egerton may have a bright future as a young big screen star. And don't forget, Mark Hamill has a bit part in this movie too. Watch below now! Here's the red band trailer for Matthew Vaughn's Kingsman: The Secret Service from IGN: You can still watch the recent UK trailer for Kingsman: The Secret Service right here. »
