Colin Firth trains the next generation in director Matthew Vaughn's new teenage spy thriller
Matthew Vaughn's upcoming comic-book actioner Kingsman: The Secret Service was already looking pretty interesting. Now, hip-hop artist Iggy Azalea is promoting the debut of a new trailer for the film (showcasing her new song featuring Ellie Goulding) which offers an expanded look at the upcoming 20th Century Fox blockbuster.
The film stars newcomer Taron Egerton as Gary "Eggsy" Unwin, a trouble youth from the London inner-city who is recruited into a top-secret global spy agency by a legendary operative (Colin Firth.) While Unwin clashes with fellow recruits from upper-class upbringings who resent his blue-collar origins, they are forced to work together to stop a supervillain plot that targets the agency and threatens the entire world.
Due out in February, Kingsman is an adaptation of the graphic novel by Kick-Ass writer Mark Millar and Watchmen artist Dave Gibbons. Mark Hammill, Samuel L. Jackson, Mark Strong and Michael Caine also star, alongside Lady Gaga, Elton John, David Beckham and Adele "as themeselves" (the plot of the graphic novel involved the kidnapping of various celebrities) and "The Nike Girl" Sofia Boutella as the cyborg henchwoman "Gazelle."
