Kingsman The Secret Service

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.

Kingsman The Secret Service (8)

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.

Kingsman The Secret Service poster

Like pretty much every handsome British actor of a certain age, Colin Firth has occasionally been rumored for the James Bond role. And while he never did get to play 007, he does finally get an opportunity to play a 007-type in Matthew Vaughn‘s upcoming Kingsman: The Secret Service.

Formerly just titled The Secret Service, the Mark Millar adaptation centers around a British intelligence agent (Firth) who grooms his street-smart nephew (Taron Egerton) to join him in the trade. Also starring are Michael Caine as the head of the spy organization, and Samuel L. Jackson as the villain. The first Kingsman: The Secret Service poster and images have just hit the web, and you can check them out after the jump.

The Secret Service

Matthew Vaughn‘s The Secret Service is loaded with big, established stars like Colin Firth, Samuel L. Jackson, and Michael Caine. But when it comes to the film’s younger cast members it seems Vaughn prefers fresher faces.

Relative newcomer Taron Egerton won one of the leads earlier this summer, and now the even lesser known Sophie Cookson has booked the female lead. Hit the jump for more about the project and its newest addition.
