Colin Firth on SJP?
This is the second trailer out for Kingsman, and it just makes me want to see it more. Director Matthew Vaughn (Kick Ass, X-Men First Class) turned down the last X’er flick to wrap his mitts around this one. It’s based on infamous comic by Mark Millar & Dave Gibbons. We all saw what Vaughn did with Millar’s Kick Ass…a R-rated comic book film that didn’t suck. I expect more of the same with Kingsman.
Oh, and isn’t it awesome to see Firth as a nerdy, prim & proper Bond type agent of lethal means? The man can act. Mark Strong, Michael Caine, and Samuel L. Jackson (my guess he’s the baddie) also star. Opens February 2015.
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.
