If you've seen the first trailer for Kingsman: The Secret Service, you could be under the impression that Matthew Vaughn's adaptation of Mark Millar's graphic novel is a British Men in Black with posh accents instead of aliens.
While the second trailer doesn't do much to change that impression, it does at least look like tons of fun - which should overrule any lack-of-originality complaint.
The action comedy revolves around a street kid who is taken under the wing of a suave friend of his father's, naturally played by Colin Firth. The latter happens to be a member of the super secretive spy organization "Kingsman," currently recruiting. To join the ranks of said group, the kid has to smooth those rough edges and compete with some of Britain's most entitled upperclass pricks.
Michael Caine, Mark Strong, Samuel L. Jackson, and Mark Hamill (!) round-off the great cast, which even the Queen might applaud with a gentle clap.
The last time director Vaughn tackled a graphic novel by Mark Millar, he gave the world Kick-Ass. Let's hope [Kingsman: The Secret Service](movie:713143) takes the title of its predecessor as a directive!
Did this Kingsman trailer kick ass?
Kingsman: The Secret Service will clandestinely sneak into theaters February 13th, 2015.
