kingsman the secret service
I’ll probably end up sounding repetitive what with all my previous musings about Kingsman: The Secret Service, so I’ll probably be short here as there’s nothing else to add. The film just had its premiere in London off the heels of months of positive reviews from moviegoers who have already seen it across the pond. Hence, with less than a month away from the film’s release, it appears the film is selling itself quite well.
Matthew Vaughn directs with Colin Firth and Taron Egerton starring for its February 13 U.S. release, and to get a brief glimpse of the Kingsman-style action, there’s a new clip floating out and about. And here’s a word of advice when confronting Firth in his Kingsman outfit: Hold on to your tongue lest you wish to lose your teeth!
Watch the clip below along with another clip and two new short promos that follow!

Based upon the acclaimed comic book and directed by Matthew Vaughn (Kick Ass, X-Men First Class), Kingsman: The Secret Service tells the story of a super-secret spy organization that recruits an unrefined but promising street kid into the agency’s ultra-competitive training program just as a global threat emerges from a twisted tech genius.
The hardcore fanbase of action star Scott Adkins (Undisputed 2 & 3, Ninja 1 & 2), can celebrate another career move this week involving production of the upcoming British comedy, Grimsby, which starts shooting this summer with Now You See Me helmer Louis Letterier attached to direct. Not much is known yet about how big Adkins‘ role is this time around, but fans of obscene and outlandish laughs are guaranteed a laugh or several with starring actor/writer/producer Sacha Baron Cohen alongside Mark Strong.
Sony Pictures picked up the film earlier on for a July 31, 2015 release, with Strong set to play a British black-ops spy forced to go on the run with his long-lost brother, an idiotic English soccer hooligan, played by Cohen; the latter produced the film with co-writers Phil Johnston and fellow Borat and Bruno collaborator Peter Baynham, which pretty much verifies what I said in the first paragraph. But, with Adkins starring in a film with Strong and a director known for working with action veterans like Corey Yuen, Jason Statham and Cyril Raffaelli, we’ll see if this SBC follow-up has a little something for everyone. In the meantime, we’re in the dark, but keep your eyes peeled.
Strong is set to appear with lead actor Colin Firth in director Matthew Vaughn’s Kingsman: The Secret Service this October. Adkins is poised to commense the action with lead actor and helmer Wu Jing in Wolf War and Kaos’s international crime drama, Zero Tolerance, later this year, while plans for two more films with director Isaac Florentine for Close Range and Undisputed 4 remain in development.
