29 JAN 2015 Freeze Frame
This Month: Colin Firth turns secret agent in the trailer for spy- fi comic adaptation Kingsman: The Secret Service
Eggsy in his full Kingsman garb. The movie isn’t a Bond spoof, and even takes place in a world where Bond movies exist. There’s more than a hint of You Only Live Twice to Valentine’s evil lair. Egerton did a lot of his own stunts in the film. No way those specs are staying in place without visual effects though.
Samuel L Jackson plays Valentine, an eccentric supervillain who wants to wipe out the majority of the human population.
Gadget fans have a lot to look forward to in Kingsman, even the Harry Palmer- esque specs have tech in them!
Michael Caine plays the head of the Kingsman. Each agent is code- named after a Knight of the Round Table.
This is Gazelle, Valentine’s deadliest assassin who can slice and dice with those razor sharp feet.
Meet the fresh- faced Kingsman recruits, about to be put through their paces by Mark Strong’s Merlin.
Kingsman recruitment tests are a life or death matter – here the trainees must escape a flooded room.
Meet Eggsy ( relative newcomer Taron Egerton), a yoof from the wrong side of the tracks.
Colin Firth plays Steed- alike Harry Hart ( Jack London in the comics), who knew Eggsy’s father, and helps him out…
… with a bullet- proof umbrella set to stun! Expect some dazzling punch- ups from Kick- Ass director Matthew Vaughn.
