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.

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.

Thirty-five million dollars. That’s all that separates the worldwide grosses of the first Kick-Ass, and its sequel, Kick-Ass 2. That doesn’t sound like a lot, but when neither gross is over $100 million, and each cost about $30 million to make, it’s a big percentage. Because of that, plans to continue the franchise either with a Kick-Ass 3 or Hit Girl spin-off have pretty much stalled. Fans still talk about the ideas, though, and so do the filmmakers.
Case in point: Kick-Ass director and sequel producer Matthew Vaughn. In a new interview, he suggests he’d like to do a Kick-Ass prequel, centering on Hit Girl and Big Daddy, as a palate cleanser leading to Kick-Ass 3. Sounds awesome right? Well series co-creator Mark Millar is less optimistic about those movies actually happening. Check out the Vaughn and Miller Kick-Ass prequel and sequel quotes below. Read More »
Kingsman: The Secret Service was a hit earlier this year for 20th Century Fox and, very quickly, rumors of a sequel began to bubble. Two people who were a little surprised at that were series co-creators Mark Millar and Matthew Vaughn, the latter of whom directed the film. Millar recently said while there was a desire to do it and talks about it, things weren’t as concrete as the Internet made it seem. For example, he hadn’t written a comic sequel and had no plans too. But that’s seemingly been solved.
In a new interview, Vaughn revealed he’s currently writing Kingsman 2 and if the script is deemed good enough, he’ll make it. Below, read the Matthew Vaughn Kingsman 2 quote and find out how Millar envisions the sequel. Read More »
Over the past month, the second Star Wars Anthology film has been the subject of much debate. Josh Trank left the project and we heard that Boba Fett was going to be the center of the film. Now, a new rumor adds more to that Boba Fett news by saying Fett’s rivalry with a certain smuggler named Han Solo between Episodes III and IV is the specific drive of the film. Among the characters who are part of that story? Lando, Chewbacca and Bossk.
But there’s more. The report also says Jon Favreau and Matthew Vaughn, two directors who were right in the middle of talks to direct Star Wars Episode VII, are potentially circling the 2018 project.
And that’s not it! The story says the third Anthology film could be that Yoda movie we’d heard about months ago too. Read more about this latest Han Solo Boba Fett Star Wars rumor below.

It was bound to happen, and now there’s some news: a Kingsman sequel is in the works at Fox. Given that the Matthew Vaughn adaptation of Mark Millar and Dave Gibbons’ The Secret Service comic series was a surprise hit both at home and even more so internationally, to the tune of a $400m overall haul as of the close of this past weekend, a sequel makes sense. But it is still early in the film’s development, so we’re left wondering whether or not Vaughn will return. Read More »
