Trailer for your Weekend: Kingsman: The Secret Service

Most creative poster for a spy film I've seen in quite some time.

Most creative poster for a spy film I’ve seen in quite some time.

I read about Kingsman: The Secret Service (2015) the other day, having not really been aware it was coming. The terrible title aside, I am pretty excited for the potential. I am a big fan of some of Matthew Vaughn’s films and it has Colin Firth as an asskicking spy, which I think we all need to see. As for the trailer, I just dunno. It looks like it could go either way, especially with the teen ‘delinquent’ character being a trope that is often bland. That said though, I still believe that a combination of Vaughn and Firth gives this a fair chance to be a heap of fun. And the elevated spy film stuff looks great. I loved that secret room of weapons and plenty of the stuff that followed it. If there is plenty of that over the top, James Bondish stuff, I am so on board with this. What do you guys think?

  1. The US coach is also a spy? Oh wait, that’s Klinsman.

  2. Yeah, same here. This could go either way. Hope it’s fun. It has that potential.

    1. Yep. Looks like it has that tone which will either be a lot of fun, or totally infuriating.

  3. Looks interesting to me! I’ll bite.

    1. Yeah I agree. I’m definitely keen to check it out given the quality of people involved.

  4. Yeah I have to say that I share your concerns that the trailer hints at a movie that could go either way. It could be bland and uninspired or invigorating and unique, packed with awesome performances. I haven’t seen much of Colin Firth so I’ll check this one out regardless I think.

    1. Yeah let’s hope they can pull off the unique vibe the trailer hints at. I like Firth in things like The King’s Speech and especially A Single Man. But this looks like nothing he has ever done before.
