Kingsman: The Secret Service unveils a new trailer!
20th Century Fox released a new Kingsman: The Secret Service trailer. The story centers on “a super-secret spy organization that recruits an unrefined but promising street kid into the agency’s ultra-competitive training program just as a global threat emerges from a twisted tech genius.” This trailer is a great reminder that one should always look forward to the latest from director Matthew Vaughn (X-Men: First Class). Jane Goldman and Vaughn adapted the script based on the comic book by Mark Millar and Dave Gibbons. Michael Caine and Taron Egerton also star in the February 13 release.
