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 »

The film critics who turned to filmmaking

22 January 2015 8:46 AM, PST | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

From the Pudsey The Dog movie to Joe Cornish and Roger Ebert, what happens when critics make films themselves?

Arts critics tend to get a rough time of it in the movies. Even looking at this year's awards season hopefuls, Birdman casts a wonderfully scabrous Lindsay Duncan as a theatre critic who is determined to kill the hero's play, and Mr. Turner presents John Ruskin as a lisping, pretentious fop, a representation that has led some to take mild umbrage.

To look even further back, at Ratatouille's sneering Anton Ego, or Lady In The Water's film-savvy 'straw critic', or Theatre Of Blood's gleefully murderous tract, there's not a whole lot of love for critics in film. Any of this might give way to the preconception that critics, especially film critics, don't actually like films and that they're out of touch with both the filmmakers whose works they »

George Lucas shares his thoughts on Star Wars: The Force Awakens trailer, says Disney scrapped his ideas for the Sequel Trilogy

20 January 2015 12:55 PM, PST | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Having retired from the Star Wars franchise, George Lucas has previously stated that he was yet to watch the first trailer for Star Wars: The Force Awakens. However, he has now revealed that he caught the trailer while attending the cinema, telling Page Six: “I saw the trailer. I saw it in a theater because I don’t watch movies online.” When asked if he liked it, he smiled. “Yeah, it was intriguing.”

Meanwhile, Lucas also spoke to Cinema Blend about his initial vision for the Sequel Trilogy (you may recall that Michael Arndt had written treatments for the three films when Lucas was still in charge of the Saga, with J.J. Abrams subsequently rewriting Episode VII’s script with Lawrence Kasdan, and reportedly shifting the focus from new characters to the old guard):

Mark Hamill talks Star Wars: The Force Awakens and returning to the Millennium Falcon

19 January 2015 9:07 AM, PST | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Before it was announced he’d be returning to the world of The Flash to reprise his role as The Trickster, it was revealed that Mark Hamill would be picking up the lightsabre once again to play Luke Skywalker in Star Wars: The Force Awakens.

“The déjà vu of walking onto the Millennium Falcon again and remembering all these details that they’ve got exactly right from old photographs and old blueprints…I can’t describe the feeling,” Hamill told Extra (via Cbm) promoting his new movie Kingsman: The Secret Service. “Even now it seems surreal to me.  It seems hard to believe that it’s actually happening.”

When asked about Star Wars creator George Lucas (who recently had some harsh words about The Academy), Hamill said “seeing [George Lucas] this happy, he’s almost unrecognisable. Because when I was with him [on the original trilogy], he was fretting over all the details, so he »

Judy Greer promises lots of comedy and “comedic improv” in Ant-Man

19 January 2015 4:44 AM, PST | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

The trailer for Ant-Man was released a couple of weeks ago and many were surprised by the sombre tone. Given the movie is directed by Peyton Reed (I Love You, Man) and written by Adam McKay (Anchorman) with Edgar Wright (The World’s End) and Joe Cornish (Attack the Block) having also previously worked on the project, many thought it would be more comedic compared to Captain America: The Winter Soldier. In fact, several of our writers (and the Flickering Myth Podcast) theorised that a more serious trailer had been cut to stick with the “Marvel style”, while the actual movie would be tonally different.

In an interview with Ant-Man star Judy Greer, she seemed to back up this theory, “I haven’t seen it yet but there was a lot of comedy on set and we did a lot of comedic improv,” she told IGN Movies.

Star Wars: The Force Awakens to feature first female stormtrooper

18 January 2015 9:48 AM, PST | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

It looks like Disney and J.J. AbramsStar Wars: The Force Awakens is set to introduce the very first female stormtrooper…

The Daily Mirror is reporting that unknown British actress Amybeth Hargreaves has been cast as an Imperial Stormtrooper in the hotly-anticipated first chapter of the Star Wars sequel trilogy, which stems from a listing on Hargreaves’ Spotlight UK page.

If true, then it seems the Empire must have implemented a new equality and diversity policy following the death of the Emperor, with black actor John Boyega also playing a stormtrooper, as seen in the first trailer.

As it happens, the EU has previously featured female stormtroopers, with Jes Gistang appearing in the comic book series Star Wars: Legacy, along with another unnamed character.

Star Wars: The Force Awakens is set for release on December 18th 2015 and sees returning stars Mark Hamill (Luke Skywalker), Harrison Ford (Han »

Warwick Davis shares Star Wars: The Force Awakens selfies

15 January 2015 12:51 PM, PST | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Warwick Davis was very keen to get a role in Star Wars: The Force Awakens last year, and while appearing on The One Show on BBC One, the Return of the Jedi star has shared a couple of selfies with two familiar Star Wars characters on the set at Pinewood Studios.

As things are being kept top secret we can assume that Davis was given permission to show these two photos which hardly give away any details about the film. We already knew that Chewbacca was making a return but the selfie with what is clearly Darth Vader is interesting. There have been rumours that Vader would appear in the film but it is more likely that the costume was available on set for being so iconic. Or maybe Davis has just spoiled the return of the Dark Lord of the Sith….

Ansel Elgort Will Be Edgar Wright’s Baby Driver

14 January 2015 8:07 AM, PST | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

When Edgar Wright and Marvel parted ways in a very public split related to script changes for Ant-Man, the beloved British helmer soon announced that he’d be taking on a much smaller-scale project for his next gig: crime-thriller Baby Driver, which Wright wrote for Working Title Films. Now, that film has taken a major leap forward with word that The Fault in Our Stars lead Ansel Elgort is in discussions to star.

Elgort, who came out of absolutely nowhere to co-star in the Carrie remake then quickly snag major roles in the Divergent franchise, teen sensation The Fault in Our Stars and Jason Reitman’s (meritless) Men, Women & Children, will play a getaway driver who relies on his own soundtrack to make him the best driver in the game. When he ends up in over his head working for a crime boss, he finds that the doomed heist he »

Rumour: Possible new concept art description of Max Von Sydow’s Star Wars: The Force Awakens character

14 January 2015 4:46 AM, PST | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Since the Star Wars: The Force Awakens cast was officially announced last April the internet has been flooded with potential rumours and ramblings concerning who is playing who (or what). While most of these rumours haven’t been confirmed some concept art that was leaked in recent months can help add some depth to the early character descriptions.

Before you read on I must stress that this is very much spoiler territory but also that it is currently only a rumour and hasn’t been confirmed by anyone involved with The Force Awakens.

Fan site StarWars7news are reporting that their Episode VII source has seen concept art regarding Max Von Sydow’s character and it differs from previous rumoured descriptions.

Possible Spoilers Below…

Contrary to previous descriptions Von Sydow’s character has “no cybernetic implants upon his face” or make-up of any kind. He’s wearing a dark »

Ansel Elgort Recruited for Edgar Wright's 'Baby Driver'

13 January 2015 2:37 PM, PST | Rope of Silicon | See recent Rope Of Silicon news »

Edgar Wright is putting the Ant-Man debacle in his rearview and prepping his next feature, Baby Driver, and according to Variety he's found his star in The Fault in Our Stars co-star Ansel Elgort. The action-comedy will find Elgort, who reportedly beat out Logan Lerman (Fury) and John Boyega (Attack the Block, Star Wars: Episode VII - The Force Awakens) for the role, playing a talented, young getaway driver who relies on the beat of his personal soundtrack to be the best in the game. But after being coerced into working for a crime boss, he must face the music when a doomed heist threatens his life, love and freedom. Sony will distribute the pic through their TriStar label, most likely in 2016. »

George Lucas wanted to direct Star Wars Episode VII

13 January 2015 8:05 AM, PST | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

It was news that broke the Internet a few years back when Disney purchased Lucasfilm for a whopping $4 billion, announcing a new trilogy of Star Wars movies including several spin-offs. But prior to their announcement, Lucas himself was working a new trilogy that he intended to write and direct for release in May 2015.

However, when the offer came through, the decision was easy for Lucas to make.

“It’s better for me to get out at the beginning of a new thing and I can just remove myself,” Lucas told USAToday, promoting his new movie Strange Magic. “The time is more important to me than the money.”

J.J. Abrams Talks 'Star Wars: The Force Awakens'

8 January 2015 1:43 AM, PST | LatinoReview | See recent LatinoReview news »

Everybody’s been trying to find out any little morsel of information pertaining to Star Wars: The Force Awakens, but has anybody asked director J.J. Abrams how he feels about creating probably the most anticipated movie in the last ten years? MTV recently had a little chat with Abrams on the National Board of Review red carpet. Here’s what he had to say about the immense pressure:

"All I know is that it is, without question, an intense and terrifying prospect…The opportunity, I think, is greater than the fear, than the risk. I’m more excited about the work everyone has done on the movie and this incredible cast."

The cast includes many new faces to the Star Wars franchise including newcomer Daisy Ridley, along with Oscar Isaac (Inside Llewyn Davis), Adam Driver (Girls), and John Boyega (Attack The Block).

“The parties have resolved the matter to their satisfaction,” a joint statement from the studios’ lawyers said, with settlement terms unspecified.

In April, MGM and producers Danjaq claimed a script being developed by Universal borrowed heavily from Ian Fleming‘s beloved “Bond” franchise.

J.J. Abrams on the pressure of directing Star Wars: The Force Awakens

7 January 2015 1:26 PM, PST | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

It is without doubt one of the most anticipated movies of 2015, and indeed the entire decade, and so it goes without saying that launching Disney’s Star Wars sequel trilogy with The Force Awakens must be a daunting prospect for director J.J. Abrams. During an interview with MTV, the director has spoken about the pressure of helming Episode VII, as well as taking the opportunity to praise his cast and crew…

“It is without question an intense and terrifying prospect. It’s the opportunity I think that’s greater than the fear. Greater than the risk, and so I’m more excited about the work that everyone has done on the movie and this incredible cast… It was an amazing experience making this movie for everyone. There was a sort of weird buzz in the air when we were making it, but we were all just aware of how hard »

No screenwriting credit for Edgar Wright on Ant-Man, Kevin Feige briefly talks plot details

7 January 2015 11:18 AM, PST | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Last night Marvel Studios debuted the first trailer for Ant-Man [watch it here] – Marvel’s second movie of 2014, and one that’s been in development since before the launch of the Cinematic Universe.

Back in 2003, British filmmaker Edgar Wright (Shaun of the Dead) and writing partner Joe Cornish (Attack the Block) wrote a treatment for the miniature hero and original Avenger, and in 2006 the duo were hired by Marvel Studios to develop the project as part of the McU’s initial slate of films. After working on several drafts of the script, Wright finally started moving towards pre-production late in 2013, before the shock news came last May that the director had parted ways with Marvel due to creative differences.

Following the appointment of Peyton Reed (Down with Love) as Wright’s successor, Adam McKay (Anchorman: The Legend of Ron Burgundy) was brought in to contribute to the script with star Paul Rudd. Well, »

See Paul Rudd Ride a Giant Bug in 'Ant-Man' Trailer

7 January 2015 6:12 AM, PST | Rollingstone.com | See recent Rolling Stone news »

Nearly 13 months after it was first revealed that Paul Rudd would suit up in Ant-Man, a two-minute teaser trailer is offering the first real look at Marvel's microscopic superhero. Presented as a heist film packaged within a superhero saga, the Ant-Man clip also showcases some of the humor you'd expect from a movie starring Rudd.

In the film, Rudd portrays Scott Lang, a small-time thief who's recruited by Michael Douglas' Dr. Henry Pym to "become the hero" and "be the Ant-Man;" Pym himself creates the technology but is too old to wear the suit. »
