The Oscar-winning star has obtained dual citizenship in response to the political “uncertainty” in Europe following the British public’s vote to ‘Brexit’ the European Union.
Firth, 56, is eligible through his film producer wife Livia Giuggioli, 48, and will now hold dual nationality —meaning that while he remains the ultimate British gentleman, he will also be able to enjoy a splash of la dolce vita.
Giuggioli is also currently applying for a British passport, while their children Luca, 16, and Matteo, 14, already hold dual citizenship.
“I was married there and had two children born in Rome, »

It is about to hit the fan. Again. Yesterday we got a Joker Vs. Pennywise fan trailer that was a short tease bringing the two villains together for the ultimate showdown. The Joker must have lost, cause now it looks like Pennywise is the new clown in town. And he's taking over Gotham. Out of the shadows comes Bruce Wayne to save the day. And it's the ultimate battle to the death. This two minute fan trailer gives us a lot more than yesterday's neat treat did. But let's be honest, we're all almost at the end of our rope when it comes to this damn dancing clown, right?
Sure, sure, Pennywise had a good run at the box office, with It breaking records for two weekends straight to beat The Exorcist as the biggest horror movie release of all time. But it's about time for Pennywise to jump back »
Kingsman: The Golden Circle, is going to be coming out soon and the final trailer kind of looks like something you’d expect from the old Resident Evil commercials. The villain is telling you in the most polite way possible that their quest for world domination is going to come as a result of the world’s current leader being to inept to stop them. If someone ever found reason to do something like this would that be too far off the mark, or would it be right on the money? It’s kind of amusing that in Kingsman, both movies, the English

The third weekend of horror blockbuster “It” continues to scare up impressive business with a projected $30 million at 4,007 locations, followed by the launch of Warner Bros.’ animated comedy “The Lego Ninjago Movie” with about $21 million at 4,047 locations — well under recent forecasts. Still, with three films over $20 million, the overall box office represents a continued rebound for the movie business following a dismal late summer.
Independent horror movie “Friend Request” is showing little traction in its launch weekend with an estimated $2.2 million at 2,550 venues. Jake Gyllenhaal’s “Stronger,” a biopic on Boston Marathon bombing survivor Jeff Bauman, is opening with a moderate $1.6 million at 574 sites for Roadside Attractions.

Fox’s R-Rated sequel “Kingsman: The Golden Circle” is off to a solid start at the box office, on track to dethrone the two-week No. 1 run of “It” with a $15.3 million Friday total and a projected $38.7 million opening from 4,003 screens, according to industry estimates. That gives the $104 million film a 6.5 percent higher opening than its 2015 predecessor, “Kingsman: The Secret Service,” which opened to $36.2 million on Valentine’s Day Weekend in 2015. If Saturday totals can push the opening tally up to Fox’ pre-weekend projection of $40 million, “Kingsman” would become only the third live-action September »

Taron Egerton says he wouldn’t be the successful, rising star he is today were it not for his family’s unyielding support.
The Kingsman: The Golden Circle star recently revealed to People that his family have always been hugely supportive of his chosen career — they even took up a collection to help pay for his audition to drama school.
“I’m not from an affluent background in any way, so there was never that to, ‘Go and be a lawyer because you’ll make more money,’ ” he said. “There was never any expectation I would make money so it »

With Kingsman: The Golden Circle priming folks up for more fast-paced espionage comedy, we have spies on the brain! Read on to see the best movies to keep the spy action going on Netflix. »
Back in the spring of 2015, 20th Century Fox moved forward with its long-awaited Flash Gordon remake, setting director Matthew Vaughn at the helm, but we haven't heard anything about it since then. It turns out there's a very good reason for that, with Matthew Vaughn revealing in a new interview that he's still been working on it, but his original vision for the story was basically taken by Marvel's 2014 blockbuster Guardians of the Galaxy. Here's what the director had to say below, when asked if he's still working on a Flash Gordon movie.
"Yeah, we've been working on it. For me, the only problem with Flash Gordon is Guardians (of the Galaxy) kind of stole what I would have liked to have done with it. You've got Star Wars, you've got Guardians, so you've got to have your own space opera, but you have to find something that can survive among these two very, »
In 2014, Matthew Vaughn's Kingsman: The Secret Service surprised audiences and critics alike with its over-the-top spy action and comedy, and went on to make hundreds of millions of dollars worldwide. Now, Vaughn and most of his cast are back for the sequel, Kingsman: The Golden Circle, and the film does exactly what I sequel is supposed to do. Everything is bigger; bigger action scenes, bigger obstacles and threats, and even bigger cameos. Kingsman: The Golden Circle is like the first film on steroids, but is that a good thing?
Kingsman: The Golden Circle once again stars Taron Egerton as Eggsy, a member of the Kingsman, who serve the crown from behind the veneer of a tailor shop. The Kingsman organization has moved on after losing the legendary Galahad/Harry Hart (Colin Firth) and now Eggsy -- the new Galahad -- and Merlin (Mark Strong) fight the good fight to keep the realm safe. »
It's no secret that Harry Hart (Colin Firth) was to return in Kingsman: The Golden Circle, something Twentieth Century Fox spoiled themselves with the release of the very first teaser poster, but it was something which director Matthew Vaughn begged them not to do. Marketing a film isn't always a simple task, and sometimes those in charge seem to make questionable decisions, such as... Read More »

A bespoke British spy with a license to kill. His techy right-hand man, known only by his code name. All the amusingly absurd gizmos and gadgets. A beautiful femme with an inclination toward evil. It sounds familiar, yet there's been so much ado about whether there will be another James Bond movie -- and if Daniel Craig will be back for it -- that people seem to have forgotten there's another agent who ticks all those boxes and does have a movie out now: Eggsy (Taron Egerton).
If you didn't see Eggsy make his chav-to-suave(ish) transformation in The Secret Service, you are going to be awfully confused when the sequel, Kingsman: The Golden Circle, kicks off with not so much a bang, but at least at gunpoint. Charlie (Edward Holcroft), rejected by the Kingsman in the first film, holds Eggsy up, which escalates to gunshots and then an intricately choreographed fight in the backseat of a town »
