There’s a whole lot about Kingsman: The Golden Circle that sounds new. Eggsy (Taron Egerton) will be heading across the pond to America for this new adventure, meeting new friends (like Ginger, played by Halle Berry) and new foes (like Poppy, played by Julianne Moore) along the way. But there’ll be a few familiar elements as well, including Merlin (Mark Strong). And the first Kingsman 2 poster suggests another old friend has joined the fray.
(Spoilers ahead, though it doesn’t look like the marketing team is exactly going out of its way to keep this particular plot point under wraps.) Read More »

Last we checked in with Bridget Jones in 2004’s The Edge of Reason, everyone’s favorite “wanton sex goddess” was getting engaged to the dreamy Mr Darcy (Colin Firth). In this fall’s Bridget Jones’s Diary, our girl, now in her 40s, finally seems to have it all: a great job, a handsome man, and even an adorable little bundle of joy on the way.
… Except that, in typical Bridget Jones fashion, the job’s a struggle, the handsome man is actually two handsome men, and she’s not quite sure which one is the father of that baby. Plus, her English accent seems kind of iffy — though that’s really Renee Zellweger‘s problem, not Bridget’s. Watch the first Bridget Jones’s Baby trailer after the jump. Read More »
A two-hour movie about a book editor might not be the most enticing subject matter for some filmgoers, but Genius isn’t just about any book editor. Maxwell Perkins (Colin Firth) was the editor that discovered literary Gods, such as F. Scott Fitzegerald (Guy Pearce), Ernest Hemingway (Dominic West), and Thomas Wolfe (Jude Law). Tony Award-winning director Michael Grandage makes his feature directorial debut with Perkins’ story.
Watch the Genius trailer below.

Over a decade after we last saw her, Bridget Jones (Renée Zellweger) will return next year in Bridget Jones’s Baby. And in typical Bridget form, she finds herself in another romantic quandary: she’s pregnant, and not entirely sure who the father is. Her on-again, off-again beau Mark Darcy (Colin Firth) is still in the picture, but so is a charming billionaire named Mark Qwant (Patrick Dempsey).
It’s a tough situation to be in, but it’s hard to feel too bad for Bridget. Not every single gal gets the opportunity to choose between Pride & Prejudice‘s Mr. Darcy and Grey’s Anatomy‘s McDreamy, after all. In fact, the love triangle looks downright cuddly in the first images from the sequel. Get your Bridget Jones Baby first look after the jump. Read More »
Ever since the success of Kingsman: The Secret Service, a followup has been inevitable, but whether we’d see Colin Firth in The Kingsman sequel has been up in the air. Comic book creator/writer Mark Millar hopes director Matthew Vaughn and screenwriter Jane Goldman find a good way to bring Colin Firth back for The Kingsman sequel. Millar, understandably, very much wants to see Firth return to the role of Harry Hart.

One of the more surprisingly fun and enjoyable action movies of this year was Kingsman: The Secret Service, the adaptation of Mark Millar‘s comic book from director Matthew Vaughn, which hit theaters all the way back in March and is now available on Blu-Ray and DVD.
The Matthew Vaughn film starring Colin Firth and introducing Taron Egerton was an over-the-top tribute to James Bond while also still making sure to distinguish itself from the iconic secret agent franchise. And that’s exactly what Honest Trailers hones in on when sending up this wild spy action flick. It might surprise you just how much the movie goes out of its way to simultaneously reference and go in a different direction than James Bond.

This weekend Melissa McCarthy enters secret agent territory as the unlikely hero Susan Cooper in the action comedy Spy. And while the trailers seem to indicate that she’s probably not the best woman for the job, she did get us thinking about the best spies in the business.
There have been plenty of spies on the big screen, from James Bond to Jason Bourne, and I decided to count down the Top 15 Best Movie Spies that we’ve seen throughout the years. However, you won’t find the likes of real-life spies whose life stories have been adapted for film. Instead, this is a collection of fictional spies from the movies. So with that out of the way, let’s count down the Top 15 Movies spies after the jump. Read More »
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 chance — a good chance, given the way these things tend to go. And so Matthew Vaughn is airing some of his Kingsman 2 ideas, which include possible options for the character played by Colin Firth.
Note that spoilers for Kingsman: The Secret Service follow. Read More »
