Kingsman: The Secret Service Red Band Trailer (2014)
Red band trailer for Kingsman: The Secret Service. Preview shows plenty of never before seen R-rated footage focusing more on action, dialogue and gore over nudity; save for a quick butt shot. With its fill of adult content, the trailer also gives audiences the most footage of Samuel L. Jackson's character, Valentine, to date.
Colin Firth did 80% of all his own stunts, and he worked out for six months prior to filming so he could be in good physical condition.
Matthew Vaughn dropped out of directing X-Men: Days of Future Past to direct Kingsman instead.
During and in the run up to the First and Second World Wars, British Intelligence often used tailor shops as fronts for their activities.
On the film's official website, the 'Gentleman's Guide' rules include never telling about 'private matters or dealings', not clashing in public with either exes or clothing, and never reacting to rudeness.
Colin Firth was made to be a British Secret Agent. The James Bond ship might have sailed for him, given his age, but thank goodness for Kingsman, because we finally get to see him impress with amazing stunts and tricks.
Not only that, but this movie introduces us to Taron Egerton, who, I am pretty sure, will end up being a massive talent. He completely owns his role, involving a complete transformation during the movie, which you might have picked up on from the trailer.
Kingsman is not just another spy movie, nor is it a James Bond parody. It is exceptionally funny in places, and also quite violent. It's exciting to watch but perhaps the most surprising element of the film is that it is also very emotive, and indeed, upsetting at times.
This trailer brings us plenty of hints at what's to come in the film and you really won't be disappointed; so often action trailers feature all the best bits and then the rest of the movie is padding, but not here. It's also worth noting that a Kingsman sequel is already well in development, a mark of how good this one is.
Egerton, Firth, Samuel L. Jackson and Michael Caine are all such fun to watch in Kingsman and though Firth is his usual upper class Englishman character, it fits well and he plays it well as always... it's just that this time he's a force to be reckoned with.
