Dir. Matthew Vaughn
Like Jupiter Ascending, Kingsman: The Secret Service saw it release bumped out of 2014 into 2015. Based on Mark Millar and Dave Gibbons’ excellent graphic novel about a young upstart joining a debonair secret agent society, Matthew Vaughn’s (X-Men: First Class, Kick-Ass) newest film stars Academy Award winner Colin Firth (The King’s Speech, Before I Go to Sleep) as a veteran agent who takes Taron Egerton (Testament of Youth, “The Smoke”) under his wing, showing him the ropes. Samuel L. Jackson plays the villainous Valentine. Mark Hamill, Michael Caine, Mark Strong, and Jack Davenport costar.
