Kingsman: The Secret Service, the latest film from X-Men: First Class director Matthew Vaughn, is set to debut its first trailer this afternoon after a great reception at this past year's Comic-Con. EW has the new photos, and CS has exclusively premiered the first poster. Colin Firth headlines this adaptation of Kick-Ass creator Mark Millar's popular comic. The story follows a suave intelligence agent who trains a teen delinquent, turning him into a superspy. Check out these latest images featuring Samuel L. Jackson, Michael Caine, Taron Egerton and Colin Firth.
About the movie, Matthew Vaughn compares it to one of the classic James Bond spoofs of the 60s,
"We missed all the spy movies we loved as kids, whether it was Bond or In Like Flint. They had a sense of humor as well as being a thriller. With [Kingsman], we're subverting the spy movie genre as we know it."
The actor had this to say about the action in the movie,
"Matthew had me on three hours a day of training, even when I went off to do another film. But it wasn't eastern martial arts stuff. The guys that trained me were like The League of Extraordinary Gentlemen in that they all had a particular superpower. Bradley James Allan worked with Jackie Chan. He's a kung fu black belt and one of the best in the world. That's his skill. But I also had Rudi Vrba, a Thai boxing world champion, stuntman Rick English, and I had an Olympic gold medal gymnast, Damien Walters. I had a team of people at the top of their field with very special skills coming to me. It was slightly uncharted waters."
The world's greatest secret agent is on the most exciting case of his career. But will the end of the world as know it take a back seat to training his street-punk nephew to be the next James Bond? Meanwhile, what's the secret link between a series of kidnapped sci-fi stars, the murder of an entire town, and a dark secret from inside Mount Everest? Under Uncle Jack's supervision, Gary's spy skills and confidence blossom--but when the duo learns what's behind the celebrity kidnappings, the knowledge comes at a price. The conspiracy begins to unravel, but who can be trusted when so many prominent figures seem to be involved? It's a must-be-seen-to-be-believed action spectacle!
