KINGSMAN – THE GOLDEN CIRCLE (2017): New Trailer From Taron Egerton, Channing Tatum, Colin Firth, Julianne Moore…

In Kingsman – The Golden Circle, the Kingsman headquarters are destroyed and the world is held hostage. Upon discovering an allied spy organization in the US. The two elite secret organisations must work together to defeat a common enemy…

Before the First Kingsman movie, Kingsman – The Secret Service, I mostly knew the film’s director Matthew Vaughn as an excellent producer to one of my favourite British directors, Guy Ritchie.Look at him now! I can’t wait to see what looks yet another very welcome and thrilling festival of style, action and adventure.

I don’t actually recall how things were left with Sofia Boutella’s very cool ‘Gazelle’ character in the first movie, but my hope is that this new instalment will be so good that I barely miss her, if at all.

Kingsman – The Golden Circle Release Dates: September 22nd, 2017 (US); September 29th, 2017 (UK)…

Jamie Bell, Abbie Cornish, Mark Strong and Tim Pigott-Smith are the stars of 6 Days, an action movie about the day armed gunmen stormed the Iranian Embassy in London in 1980 and took all inside hostage…

I’m completely new to this story rather important and interested to see a 1980s version of London.

6 Days Release Dates: August 4th, 2017 (UK)…

THE SIEGE OF JADOTVILLE (2016): Good Movie…

Until The Siege Of Jadotville, I’d only seen Jamie Dornan in one movie; the hugely successful but not particularly well regarded Fifty Shades Of Grey (2015). Since the latter film, I’ve been looking forward to finding out what else Dornan could do in front of the camera.

Directed by Richie Smyth and set in early 1960s Congo, The Siege Of Jadotville is based on the true story of Irish UN Commander Pat Quinlan and his leadership of 150 Irish soldiers against 3000 French and Belgian Mercenaries.

My enjoyment of this movie isn’t because I was blinded by the beautiful Irish accents. The entire cast delivered good performances and there’s a beautifully tense scene at a bar quite early on. There’s also the cinematography and how well director Richie Smyth and his team rose to the challenge of capturing military combat.

By the end of the movie, I was left inspired to fight my corner when necessary, happy to have found my favourite Jamie Dornan movie to date and reminded to be careful of underestimating my opponents, however in my favour the odds may appear.

Watch The Siege Of Jadotville which also stars Jason O’Mara, Mark Strong, Danny Sapani and Sam Keeley- to name just a few because there’s is more to enjoy than just the lovely Irish accents.

MISS SLOANE (2016): New Trailer Starring Jessica Chastain, Gugu Mbatha-Raw, Jake Lacy…

Miss Sloane is the story of an ambitious lobbyists’s efforts to pass gun control legislation in the United states. Starring Jessica Chastain, Gugu Mbatha-Raw and Jake Lacy, the movie is directed by John Madden of Shakespeare In Love (1998) and The Best Exotic Marigold Hotel (2011)…

I was really wanting to be more excited about this film after learning of the subject matter but this trailer doesn’t have me as desperate to see the movie as I’d hoped. I hope my lack of enthusiasm will be proven misplaced. Maybe it’s the knowledge that there’s currently very little, if any success in the US where gun control legislation is concerned.

I can’t help but wonder about that time in the future when a movie like this will be based on a true story and the result will be a very welcome change for everyone who knows that they way things currently stand isn’t good enough.

Miss Sloane Release Dates: December 9th, 2016 (US)…

THE SIEGE OF JADOTVILLE (2016): New Trailer From Jamie Dornan, Mark Strong, Guillaume Canet,

Set in early 1960s Jadotville, Congo, Jamie Dornan’s latest movie The Siege Of Jadotville has him playing Irish UN Commander Pat Quinlan. A man who must lead 150 Irish soldiers against 3,000 French and Belgian Mercenaries…

I’m really glad to see Dornan in a role where he gets to use his country’s accent.
May things end as well as they possibly can for the key protagonist (s) involved, especially since they’re the underdog.
Based on the book by Declan Power, Richie Smyth is the director.

Starring Mark Strong, Luke Wilson and Sanaa Lathan, Approaching The Unknown is a new movie about a mission to Mars not quite going to plan…

Written and directed by Mark Elijah Rosenberg, one thing that seems very clear is that this movie is very unlikely to be incorrectly  categorised as a comedy come award season, 2017. I really, really, really want this to be good but I don’t know…

Approaching The Unknown Release Dates: June 3rd, 2016 (US in theatres and iTunes)…

THE BROTHERS GRIMSBY (2016): New Comedy Trailer From Sacha Baron Cohen & Mark Strong

I’m a fan of Mark Strong, not just because of the bass in his voice – even though it helps. I love Sacha Baron Cohen because he’s a comedy great. In 2016 both actors will star as brothers in the Louis Leterrier directed comedy, The Brothers Grimsby

I’m excited because I’ve really missed and comedy antics of Mr Baron Cohen and looking at this trailer, something tells me he’s not going to disappoint.

Rebel Wilson, Isla Fisher and Penelope Cruz also star.

Release Date (s): March 4th 2016 (US & UK)…

KINGSMAN – THE SECRET SERVICE (2014): Everything I Wanted To See

What a very pleasant surprise! Of course I should have had way more faith – if only because the film is directed by Matthew Vaughn, part of the great team that brought us Snatch (2000) and Lock Stock & Two Smoking Barrels (1998).

Starring Colin Firth, Sofia Boutella, Samuel L Jackson, Mark Strong, Michael Caine and Taron Egerton, Kingsman – The Secret Service or Kingsman for short is a great movie.

A story of adventure, fun characters, action, well choreographed fight sequences and some good old British gentlemanly charm. Kingsman is certainly very stylish and I definitely don’t just mean the suits.

There are one or two things that you’ll see coming, but even more so, the spectacle will surprise you and exceed your expectations.

All that remains is patiently waiting for the next instalment.

Happy Kingsman, The Secret Service 🙂
