Video: Major Spoilers From Set of "Secret Service" Comic Book Film, with Colin Firth and Samuel L. Jackson

Video: Major Spoilers From Set of "Secret Service" Comic Book Film, with Colin Firth and Samuel L. JacksonSubmit Comment
Matthew Vaughn (Kick-Ass, X-Men: First Class) is currently in the UK shooting scenes for a big screen adaptation of Mark Millar's "Secret Service" comic book. Today we have a video and photos from the set, giving us a look at a scene featuring Colin Firth, Samuel L. Jackson and Sofia Boutella. The scene contains major spoilers, but can be watched below.

The story follows a secret agent named Uncle Jack (Firth) as he trains his troubled nephew (Taron Egerton) in the art of espionage. Jackson plays the villain and Michael Caine as the head of the spy agency.

"Secret Service" is set to hit theaters on November 14th, 2014.

Removed at the request of Fox.

Not to sound "negative", but I think I've had more than enough of Mark Millar.

As said in past comments, Millar has a career largely because he was willing to shock people into recognizing him. He's the Miley Cyrus of comic book writers. He does all and everything he can to push the proverbial envelope. For example, in Kick Ass 2 or 3, can't recall which, Millar decapitates Colonel Stars and Stripes and stitches his dog's head to the Colonel's neck.

He also wrote Red Son, which was nothing more than one of Millar's earliest attempts to gain notoriety by overturning established conventions merely to thrust his name above the din of the more prosaic and traditional comic book writers.

In other wards, he begs for attention by pounding the audience with as much violence as allowed by law.



Having said that, I've enjoyed most of his film adaptations, with the exception of Wanted, and at the very least Secret Service will be one of those films you see out of boredom and enjoy more than it's worth simply because the day has given you few other options.

@mink
Miller, at first, I really respected. He tried to do different things. But his material has just become, as you say, pure unrelenting violence with no artistic nature or style to it. And, frankly, him and Vaughn is not that encouraging. I liked the first Kick-Ass and the second one was good because, get this, the 17 year old girl in the film was a better actress than the 30 year old man trying to be a teenager still. Wanted was purely something to enjoy on an adrenaline rush. Just balls to the wall action. But see Vaughn, as I've stated, has no grasp of atmosphere in his films. His stories are usually pretty impressive but he has no way of adding depth in lighting and the background elements that round out a story. So this film might be decent story-wise, but there will be no distinction from his other films. Very bland physical elements

Sleuth, the thing I remember the most about Wanted was James McAvoy's Fight Club-esque exposition, Jolie's naked form, someone shooting someone else in the head, lots of mumbo-jumbo concerning curving bullets and Bekmambetov's heavy use of oranges and blacks; a very bland palette with almost zero artistic composition in any of his shots. He lit Wanted like he was setting up a shot for a Rob Zombie music video, or at least that's what I recall.

And way too much reliance on selling the audience the notion some guy, lost in his tedious life, should instead pick up a gun and start sniping people. Wanted, then, in that respect, is more of a paeon to the bored, complacent twenty-somethings, who, stuck within the dreary doldrums of their empty corporately clinical lives, fulfill their fantasies by powering up Call of Duty instead.

Basically an homage to men who aren't men, and who redeem their lost masculinity by blowing up virtual people on XBOX Live.

There wasn't even much story or character development. Freeman's character is revealed to be not-so-nice, Jolie is revealed as a seductress ally, and McAvoy is revealed to be really good at shooting people from a mile away in heavy wind, which means he can now quit his job at Starbucks and work for the US Army, I guess.

Didn't really see the film's point, and it wasn't shot with any exceptional quality or talent, either.


As for Vaughn...he's pedestrian in my opinion. Nothing new or fresh or experimental. He shoots to shoot. He's the Dollar Menu McDouble to Hollywood's fast food film buffet. Very workmanship-like in his lighting, composition, and direction, and even his action scenes are often underwhelming and laboriously paced, which makes him the less-talented cousin to Singer.

The thing about Millar himself is he has kind of lost his relevancy, in that when Kick Ass hit, which was as I see it his high-water "mark", no one had done when he had done with mainstream comics, which means he now has to force his particular take on comic book story-dom, or sit on the sidelines waiting for someone else to "innovate" on what made him famous, which is pretty much gratuitous and pointless violence and gore, cursing pre-adolescents, and white women banging black guys, which is what I took away from the first Kick Ass comic book (and perhaps Prometheus on two of the three).

In other words, Millar lives to shock, and he's reached a plateau where I don't think he can natively revile us any longer with his febrile lack of morality and ethics, which means someone else will have to go where he won't and can't, which means he's probably on the backside slide of his popularity. I hope.



Sorry for the long post.

Oh, and Samuel L. Jackson I'm sure will play no one else other than his head-edged, wise-cracking black guy character, the one he plays in almost every film he's ever made.

I hardly expect him to put forth the same quality performance he gave in Django or Black Snake Moan.

Really like the girl on the right with Jackson on the first and second pic...

I will name her "Hotness"...I bet she's wearing one of those new C-thongs wedged right between her...(Ahem)

As for Millar/ Vaughn...meh. They usually have great ideas but lack proper or have average execution that doesn't really connect with the major audiences to bring in the box office numbers... not too much to get excited about, IMO.
