The first Secret Service trailer hit yesterday for the latest Mark Millar comic book-turned-film and it came with a couple of interesting tidbits. First of all, the movie looks like it will be called Kingsman: The Secret Service and the second thing is that it looks like Colin Firth will kick some major butt in the movie.
Matthew Vaughn, who previously directed the Millar comic Kick-Ass (just the first one), is directing Kingsman: The Secret Service and actually felt so passionate about this movie that he stepped out of the X-Men director’s chair after X-Men: First Class, allowing Bryan Singer to return.
The Secret Service is (at least in the comics) about a super spy in the British secret service who feels bad for neglecting his sister and takes in her son to train to become a member of his spy organization. However, what he might not have expected was that his nephew would get thrown into action just when a plot involving the kidnapping of famous sci-fi actors is linked to the plan to kill 90 percent of the human race.
Interestingly, the Kingsman: The Secret Service trailer never mentions anything about their status as uncle and nephew. However, it does show a touch of the training and some of the humor that both Millar and Vaughn are known for. It also has a blink and you miss it shot of one of the sci-fi actors that was kidnapped (Mark Hamill at 01:17).
The movie stars Colin Firth as Uncle Jack and newcomer Taron Egerton as Eggsy. Also appearing in the movie is Michael Caine, Samuel L. Jackson (with a lisp) and Mark Strong. Kingsman: The Secret Service hits theaters on Oct. 24, 2014.
