Netflix and Amblin Partners have announced the new thriller, Carry On, to be directed by Jaume Collet-Serra (Black Adam, Jungle Cruise, The Shallows) and starring Taron Egerton (Black Bird, Rocketman, Kingsman, Robin Hood). The film will be the first to get produced as part of the deal announced between the two companies last year.
Keeping in line with the sleek and stylish air of action seen in Kingsman, moviegoers are invited to rejoin actor Taron Egerton in his latest iteration of the title folk hero in Robin Hood (sans ‘Origins’). Otto Bathurst directs his Peaky Blinders and Black Mirror follow-up, bringing less of the cerebral and just as much intensity to the spectacle that can now be sampled in the new official trailer with much more Jamie Foxx this time around as Bathurst’s choice for John.
Robin of Loxley (Taron Egerton) a war-hardened Crusader and his Moorish commander (Jamie Foxx) mount an audacious revolt against the corrupt English crown in a thrilling action-adventure packed with gritty battlefield exploits, mind-blowing fight choreography, and a timeless romance.
Today is the day Comic-Con kicks off in San Diego and Twentieth Century Fox is kicking things off bright and early with a brand new trailer for Matthew Vaughn’s Kingsman: The Golden Circle. You won’t be limited here, though, as there are two versions – one of which you can view just beneath in glorious red-band form.
“Kingsman: The Secret Service” introduced the world to Kingsman – an independent, international intelligence agency operating at the highest level of discretion, whose ultimate goal is to keep the world safe. In “Kingsman: The Golden Circle,” our heroes face a new challenge. When their headquarters are destroyed and the world is held hostage, their journey leads them to the discovery of an allied spy organization in the US called Statesman, dating back to the day they were both founded. In a new adventure that tests their agents’ strength and wits to the limit, these two elite secret organizations band together to defeat a ruthless common enemy, in order to save the world, something that’s becoming a bit of a habit for Eggsy…
Returning next to lead actor Taron Egerton are actors Mark Strong and a one-eyed Colin Firth, and starring a sinister Julianne Moore, actress Halle Berry, and lasso-wielding Statesmen Channing Tatum, and Jeff Bridges. Somewhere in all this is Sir Elton John while not exactly visible in the trailer, but it can wait until the release…
…And September 22 it is! Peep it!
Lionsgate is currently ramping up progress for its forthcoming production of Robin Hood: Origins. Upcoming medeival epic, Knights Of The Roundtable scribe Joby Harold is behind the script for the new film to be directed by Peaky Blinders helmer Otto Bathurst with the goal of getting its foot through the door as soon as possible while several other studios plan their take on the same character in different form.
This week, word now has it via Deadline that Kingsman: The Secret Service star Taron Egerton is up to play the title role in the film currently being likened to that of Nolan’s The Dark Knight Rises; Harold’s script sees Egerton in a verison of the classic character who, upon his return from the Crusades, bands a team of outlaws together to rid Sherwood Forest of evil and corruption.
Egerton is also poised to reprise his role in the upcoming Kingsman sequel for Fox. Alas, scheduling between both projects may reportedly be an issue, though Egerton is the current frontrunner so it’s likely that the parties involved will work it out.
Stay tuned for more updates!

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 New Trailer For KINGSMEN: THE SECRET SERVICE Reveals Guns, Gadgets And An Ass-Kicking Colin Firth
Tuesday was the day comic book movie fans and filmgoers alike got some pretty cool eye candy highlighting 20th Century Fox’s upcoming release of the new live action thriller, Kingsmen: The Secret Service. Joined by newcomer Taron Egerton, the film also offers one of very few action roles Firth is known for, having reportedly spent three hours a day for six months training for his role with stunt coordinator and fellow Jackie Chan cohort, Brad Allan. And the result is what we now get to see in the first of several set pics courtesy of EW, along with a new teaser trailer which you can take a look at below.
