Watch Sucharita Tyagi's Not A Movie Review of Kingsman: The Golden Circle, starring Colin Firth, Julianne Moore, Taron Egerton, Mark Strong, Halle Berry, Elton John, Channing Tatum & Jeff Bridges. The movie is directed by Matthew Vaughn »
Everything seems to be on track for cinema’s final months of the year. Sure, that demented clown ruled the box office for a couple of weeks, but Ben and Jake are here now with some real “Oscar bait” flicks that will usher in the season of serious film works. Hmm, not so fast. Looks like another comics-inspired franchise is blasting into the multiplex. Now, the Jla and Thor are still many weeks away, but this series is more Bond and Bourne than Marvel and DC. Oh, and it’s from graphic novel/ movie adapter veteran Matthew Vaughn. He injected most welcomed energy to the Marvel mutants with X-men: First Class in 2011, just a year after spicing up that genre with the R-rated Kick-ass. His follow-up in 2014 was the “origin/training” tale of a super-secret (“veddy veddy” hush-hush, you know) organization whose operatives are impeccably dressed, well-mannered gentlemen (think TV’s John Steed… »

For three decades, Colin Firth has been wowing us on stage and screen. With a résumé that spans everything from period dramas to action films, he's proven that there is nothing he can't do (including tackling Abba songs in Mamma Mia). For his role in The King's Speech, he became the worthy recipient of an Oscar for best actor (to add to his trio of SAG Awards, his two BAFTA awards, and his Golden Globe). Not many men have played two Mr Darcy's quite so memorably, and Mr Firth definitely knows how to turn on the charm when it comes to his many outings as a romantic lead. Right now, he's on cinema screens as the impossibly dapper Harry Hart in Kingsman: The Golden Circle, and he's never looked better. Don't believe us? Take a look back at his celebrity evolution, including some very memorable roles and red carpet appearances. »

Based on the acclaimed comic book by Dave Gibbons and Mark Millar, 2015's Kingsman: The Secret Service was a crass, tongue-in-cheek tribute to the spy films of the '60s and '70s. Co-written and directed by English filmmaker Matthew Vaughn (of Layer Cake, Stardust, Kick-Ass, X-Men: First Class), the stylish and subversive send-up became the filmmaker's most commercially successful film to date. Enter the highly anticipated sequel, Kingsman: The Golden Circle, a movie so overblown and preposterous that it feels less like On Her Majesty's Secret Service and more like the deranged lovechild of Austin Powers and Crank. This sequel picks up a year after unrefined street kid Gary "Eggsy" Unwin (Taron Egerton) joined the Kingsman, England's super-secret spy agency, and saved the world from Richmond Valentine's neurological wave broadcast. Since then, Eggsy has taken his late mentor Harry Hart's code name, Galahad, and is living with Crown Princess »

September 2017 is currently pacing 15.6% ahead of 2016 with a calendar gross of $467.3 million, putting the month on a record pace, $48 million ahead of where 2015 was at the same time period before delivering $626.4 million, the largest September calendar gross ever. Almost half of September's total at this point is thanks to Warner Bros. and New Line's It, which is looking to do strong numbers again this weekend, but will fall from its #1 perch after two straight weeks on top. Debuting in wide release this weekend is Fox's Kingsman: The Golden Circle and it should have enough juice to take the weekend top spot while Warner Animation Group's The LEGO Ninjago Movie is looking to finish in the runner-up position. Entertainment Studios' is going social with the R-rated horror Friend Request debuting in just over 2,500 theaters and likely to finish in the top five (albeit with minimal returns) while Roadside Attractions is »

On-set pranks come in two kinds: silly or hilariously over-the-top.
“I put a mannequin in his trailer bed with a wig on it and some empty wine bottles and a pair of high heels on the floor,” Egerton reveals to People. “And he came in one morning and thought there was a person in there and was quite freaked out.”
Tatum, 37, did not get mad of course — he got even.

In an age where Hollywood is making fewer movies, they are also making bigger ones, with more explosive special effects. In the midst of what can feel like a CGI arms race, IndieWire has argued that big budget action scenes have become boring. “Kingsman 2: The Golden Circle” writer-director Matthew Vaughn agrees.
“I look at some action sequences and it’ll be like watching a football game and everything is on a mid-shot and shaking the camera around,” said Vaughn in an interview this week. “After a while, I’m thinking, this is really boring, I’m reading the impact but I’m not knowing where the ball is or who is winning, who is losing and how close [we are] to the end.”
Vaughn thinks the biggest problem is screenwriting 101: make sure the action is fully integrated into the narrative and the audience is emotionally invested in the action scenes. »

Social media has become a window into modern lives, but not an unfiltered one; users curate the way they appear online, often with disingenuous results. It was only a matter of time before the darker side of social media — cyber-stalking, online bullying, and slut-shaming — worked its way into the horror genre. While 2015’s “Unfriended” playfully exposed the double-lives of teenagers (with the majority of the film taking place on a computer screen), “Friend Request” is like unofficial sequel that focuses on the same themes.
But while the film uses social media as a catalyst for murder when a social pariah commits suicide, it does so with much muddier results.
“Friend Request” limits the computer screen activity to an opening montage, which swims through Laura’s (Alycia Debnam-Carey) life via her Facebook feed: photos and videos of parties, dinners and drunken nights out with her friends, congratulatory posts about charity work, »

Hugh Jackman finally hung up his Wolverine claws following the release of Logan this year and his tenure as Wolverine is officially over. Not that it's going to happen anytime soon, but Fox is open to rebooting the character at some point. Tom Hardy's name has come up quite a bunch when it comes to replacing Jackman. As it turns out, Tom Hardy was already in mind to play Wolverine in another X-Men movie when Matthew Vaughn was working on his follow-up to X-Men: First Class.
Matthew Vaughn recently spoke with Deadline in order to promote Kingsman: The Golden Circle. He talked a bit about his time with the X-Men franchise and revealed a bit about what his second entry in the franchise would have been. He wanted to do another movie before doing X-Men: Days of Future Past, but Fox wasn't having it. Had he been afforded the chance, »

Matthew Vaughn’s 2014 action film Kingsman: The Secret Service was mostly a blast, and despite a few rough patches (the slaughter at the church, the sex-reward from the princess), it was a nice spin on the spy genre. Vaughn basically made his own version of Bond, and played up the sillier aspects while still making us invested in the hardscrabble protagonist, Eggsy (Taron Egerton). Since spies always have work to do, a sequel seemed like a promising idea, but sadly, Kingsman: The Golden Circle plays like a last-ditch attempt to do everything, and it does very little … »

The second Kingsman film sees the dapper British secret agents go up against American supervillain Poppy Adams, played by Julianne Moore, with the help of Statesman, their Us equivalent. Kingsman: The Golden Circle is out now in the UK, and is released on 21 September in Australia and 22 September in the Us.

Now heading into its third weekend, It is going to be facing some really competition for the first time, namely thanks Matthew Vaughn's Kingsman 2: The Golden Circle. Regardless, will Kingsman 2 be able to beat It during its third weekend? »
For a character that has ostensibly been retired from the X-Men universe – for now, at least – Wolverine has been gaining an awful lot of traction over the past few days.
On Tuesday, for instance, Matthew Vaughn (Kingsman: The Golden Circle) spilled details on his wistful plans for a young Wolverine spinoff, one that would have slotted in between First Class and Days of Future Past on Fox’s release slate. Alas, that vision never came to be, and Vaughn later handed over the reins to franchise stalwart Bryan Singer.
However, when that fabled Wolverine pic was still kicking around in Matthew Vaughn’s head, it turns out the writer-director had fleshed out a rough idea for when and where his Logan spinoff would’ve taken place. Spoilers: it would have largely unraveled in the ’70s, before Days of Future Past brought the curtain down on his X-Men prequel trilogy further down the line. »

I loved director Matthew Vaughan's 2014 James-Bond-on-speed spy extravaganza Kingsman: The Secret Service. That film, adapted from the graphic novels by famed author Mark Millar (Kick Ass) took everything the world loved about the world's favorite martinio enthusiast and cranked it up to eleven, delivering a high octane action cartoon populated by memorable characters and featuring handsome relative newcomer Taron Egerton in the lead as the chavvy super spy in training, Eggsy. Trained by no less an expert in proper posh manners than Colin Firth's spy-cum-mentor Galahad, Eggsy took on a megalomanical tech magnate played with lispy verve by Samuel L Jackson and saved the world in a technicolor ballet of absurd violence and ridiculous spy tropes. In Kingsman: The Golden Circle, Eggsy is now...
