If you have never heard of Kingsman: The Secret Service before, then kindly direct your attention HERE, where you can read how the people who have already seen director Matthew Vaughn’s latest romp cannot stop talking about how amazing it is, with some even comparing it to Gareth Evans’ The Raid. Yes, a movie starring Colin Firth, one half of the most ludicrously comical “fights” ever captured on film, is being compared to one of the greatest and most brutal action movies of the modern age.
I was already sold just on Vaughn’s involvement, as well as the Mark Millar penned comic on which it is based, but the glowing testaments pushed this from “Must -See” to “WHY THE HELL ISN’T THIS STREAMING INTO MY EYEBALLS YET?!” levels. So even though this new international trailer is really cool, featuring several new action beats (this is still a green band trailer tough, so none of the purpoted “utterly demented” violence on display yet) as well as elaborating more on the evil plans of Samuel L. Jackson’s villainous Valentine, this is all just gravy to me. If you still need some convincing though, then check it out below.
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.
Along with the trailer, five new character posters for the film have also been released. They feature the the deadly appendages of Valentine’s blade-footed henchwoman Gazelle (Sofia Boutella) respectively framing each of the main characters, in what is clearly an homage to the famous poster for James Bond’s For Your Eyes Only – the type of spy movie that has a far-fetched theatrical plot, in case you didn’t get the self-aware bout of glibness in the trailer.
Kingsman: The Secret Service also stars Taron Egerton, Michael Caine, Mark Strong and Mark Hamill. It is scheduled for international release on February 13, 2015. There’s no local release date set as of yet.
