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.

For the past several months, there have been four Robin Hood movies in development and not a single Robin Hood between them. That might be about to change, however, as one of the four — Lionsgate’s gritty, revisionist Robin Hood: Origins — is finally closing in on a lead.
Among those on the production’s radar are Taron Egerton, Jack Reynor, Nicholas Hoult, Jack Huston, and possibly Dylan O’Brien. Otto Hathurst (Peaky Blinders) is directing. More about the Robin Hood Origins shortlist after the jump. Read More »
There’s a new Legend UK trailer, showing off the film featuring the dual performance from Tom Hardy that should satisfy even the most rabid fan of the actor.
And if you’ve not seen a prior trailer for Legend, Tom Hardy plays both Reggie and Ronnie Kray, the gangster twins who took over parts of London’s rackets in the ’60s. Hardy is smooth as the ambitious Reggie, and adopts a bit of the old Marlon Brando “cotton in the mouth” technique to play the violent Ronnie. This trailer has more story than the teaser, and new footage not seen in the last US trailer; have a look below. Read More »
With news surfacing that The LEGO Movie and 21 Jump Street directors Phil Lord & Chris Miller will be at the helm of a new Star Wars Anthology film focusing on a young Han Solo, everyone is wondering just who will play the charismatic smuggler.
Harrison Ford made the role iconic in the original Star Wars trilogy, and he’ll be reprising the role in The Force Awakens. But Ford can’t play a young version of the character without extensive visual effects, so some younger actor is going to have to get in the cockpit of the Millennium Falcon. The question is who can pull it off?
We’ve rounded up some possibilities, some likely, some not, and some more preferable than others. Check out our list of 20 Actors Who Should Play Han Solo after the jump! Read More »

Alicia Vikander‘s year got off to a rough start with the long-delayed Seventh Son, before course-correcting with the excellent Ex Machina. But she’s still not done — far from it.
Her next big role is this summer’s Testament of Youth, a World War I romance with fellow up-and-comers Kit Harington (Game of Thrones) and Taron Egerton (Kingsman: The Secret Service). Watch the Testament of Youth US trailer after the jump.

Fans know infinitely more about Star Wars: The Force Awakens than they do the standalone films. For sure, we know Gareth Edwards is directing one that’ll be released in December 2016. Gary Whitta wrote the first draft, Chris Weitz is writing the latest and we think Oscar-nominee Felicity Jones will star. We also think it’ll be about a group of bounty hunters or pirates hired to steal the plans for the Death Star. Emphasis on “think.”
That’s the 2016 film. 2017 will see Rian Johnson’s Star Wars Episode VIII and then 2018 will see the next standalone. We think Josh Trank will direct that film, but rumblings are even that might not be true anymore. As for the subject of the film, it’s mostly speculation.
Which is all preamble to the latest rumor, coming from The Sun newspaper in the UK. They say that second standalone movie will feature a young Han Solo (a rumor we’ve heard for years at this point) and that Taron Egerton, currently starring in Kingsman: The Secret Service, is being eyed for the role. Read more about the Taron Egerton Han Solo rumor below. 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.
