'Kingsman: The Secret Service' trailer: Meet the new breed of knights

Super spies aren’t born — they have to learn some manners first. And undergo heart-stopping, think-on-your-feet training, as we learn in the first trailer for Kingsman: The Secret Service. Based on the graphic novel by Mark Millar and artist Dave Gibbons, it’s the next comic book movie from X-Men: First Class director Matthew Vaughn, who also adapted Millar’s Kick-Ass for the big screen.

The movie stars Colin Firth as a suave agent who recruits a promising street punk (newcomer Taron Egerton) for Kingsman, an elite independent international intelligence agency. At the same time the kid signs up, a global threat from a nasty tech genius emerges. Michael Caine and Samuel L. Jackson — who speaks with a lisp and complains about everyone’s British accents — also star. Take a look below: READ FULL STORY

Samuel L. Jackson's next comic book movie: 'The Secret Service'

Samuel L. Jackson already has a busy career as Nick Fury, Marvel Studios’ designated charisma machine and official mascot. It’s the role that seems destined to put his Guinness ranking as the highest-grossing actor in history to stratospheric Ripken-streak levels. But the actor just hopped aboard another comic book adaptation to play a decidedly un-Nick Fury character. EW has confirmed Variety‘s report that the actor has joined Matthew Vaughn’s The Secret Service, an adaptation of the Mark Millar-Dave Gibbons spy thriller. (Vaughn previously adapted Millar’s Kick-Ass.) Jackson is playing the character Valentine, the film’s antagonist. The Secret Service is currently slated for a late 2014 release.
