Now that the buzz surrounding Spectre has calmed down a bit, it’s time to check in on 2015′s other action-packed thriller about a suave British spy with a taste for finely tailored suits and outrageously advanced gadgets. Fox has just released a new red-band trailer for Kingsman: The Secret Service, starring Colin Firth as a secret agent who recruits a street kid (Taron Egerton) into the service.
Matthew Vaughn is directing the film based on a Mark Millar comic, and we all remember how much fun we had the last time that happened. Kingsman: The Secret Service seems to be cut from the same crazy, bloody, “fuck”-filled cloth. Watch the Kingsman The Secret Service red band trailer after the jump. Read More »

The second we heard Matthew Vaughn was doing a new Mark Millar comic book movie, we got excited. With each new piece of information, that interest continues to build. Now, Kingsman The Secret Service is entering the final stages of its marketing leading up to a February 13 release and word on the film continues to build. Not only is there a brand new trailer for the film, which stars Colin Firth as a dapper secret agent training a new recruit, we’ve got some evocative characters posters as well featuring Firth, Samuel L. Jackson and a cute pug named Jack Bauer. Check it all out below. Read More »
With all the release date shuffling Matthew Vaughn‘s latest film has endured, one could assume it is no good. The film, Kingsman: The Secret Service, had multiple release dates before settling on February 13, 2015 in the U.S. Usually that’s a sign of weakness, but perhaps not in this case. Based on a comic written by Mark Millar, Kingsman: The Secret Service has begun screening for critics and fans in the UK and the buzz is as if the film never moved a muscle. It seems Vaughn has made a film that’s very much in line with Kick Ass, but with bigger action, bigger stars and even bigger possibility for franchising.
Below, read some early buzz on Matthew Vaughn’s latest film, Kingsman: The Secret Service. Read More »

After the success of Kick-Ass, director Matthew Vaughn and Mark Millar are teaming up again for another action-packed comic book movie. Kingsman: The Secret Service stars Colin Firth as an ultra-competent spy who recruits a troubled but talented street kid (Taron Egerton) for his top-secret organization.
Like Kick-Ass, Kingsman: The Secret Service takes on familiar genre tropes with wit and verve. We’ve seen well-dressed, well-mannered James Bond figures before, but probably never quite like this. Hit the jump to watch the new Kingsman The Secret Service trailer. It also features a new Iggy Azalea and Ellie Goulding track, if that’s your thing.

Sorry folks, no new Matthew Vaughn film this year. After a stellar presentation at San Diego Comic-Con, Fox has moved Vaughn’s comic book adaptation Kingsman: The Secret Service starring Colin Firth from October of this year into February 2015.

Months of speculation were answered Friday night at Comic-Con when Mark Hamill finally appeared on screen. It was not, however, for that little sci-fi movie he’s making. It was to introduce a new clip from Kingsman: The Secret Service, Matthew Vaughn‘s latest film adaptation of a Mark Millar comic book. Hamill has a small role in one of the film’s opening scenes and they played the whole thing during the panel. Read about the Kingsman: The Secret Service Comic Con panel below.
Update: The full panel (minus footage) is online; watch below.
