We’ve been cautiously optimistic about Matthew Vaughn’s upcoming comic-inspired flick Kingsman: The Secret Service, but the anticipation meter is officially ratcheted up to 11.
The latest trailer for the spy-fi flick, directed by Vaughn and based on Mark Millar’s comic of the same name, looks like the self-aware, anti-James Bond we never knew we wanted. Though previous trailers played it straight(ish), the latest cut lets loose with the weirdness — to fantastic effect.
Vaughn and Millar previously collaborated on the stellar Kick-Ass, directed by Vaughn and based on Millar’s comic, and it looks like they’re close to replicating that same weird-awesome magic once again. From random puppies to crazy weapons and Samuel L. Jackson’s lisp, this movie looks like a ton of fun. Seriously, the new footage casts this film in a whole new light.
Based on the comic concept, the film tells the story of a secret international 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. Kingsman stars Colin Firth, Samuel L. Jackson, Michael Caine and Taron Egerton.
The film is set to open Feb. 13, 2015, and we’ve just officially added it to our calendar. What do you think of the latest trailer?
