Let me get this straight, a british MI6 agent takes a protege, probably a wild civilian, into the espionage world of flying cars and bomb assassinations and they call it "The Secret Service". It feels like a jumbled action mess.
Which no doubt I will be watching ! Blow those bad guys up!
Smooth operators: Colin Firth and Sir Michael Caine are pictured filming new spy movie The Secret Service
By Rebecca Davison and Hanna Flint
Colin Firth looked his usual dapper self when he was pictured filming scenes for new movie, The Secret Service, on Friday, but the star is playing a role which is quite out of character for him.
The 53-year-old star plays highly-trained British spy, Jack London, who attempts to save his street smart nephew, played by Taron Egerton, from falling into a bad crowd by taking him under his wing.
Colin was spotted chatting to some of the crew members between takes, and was later joined on set by Sir Michael Caine, who will be playing the head of the British spy agency.

The movie, currently being filmed in Surrey, has been adapted from Kick Ass creator Mark Millar and Watchmen artist Dave Gibbons' comic.

But this isn't the first non-Bond related British spy flick Colin has starred in, as he joined a stellar ensemble cast in Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy.
Speaking of his latest fictional work, Millar said: 'Secret Service is the ramifications of [how] America is struggling on the world stage, funding is being seriously undercut to balance the books and some people are trying their best to take advantage of the fragile global situation.

'The hero and sidekick guys who lead the book are, I think, the best characters I've written.'
But it doesn't look as though Colin makes it to the end of the movie, as scenes shot earlier this month show Samuel L. Jackson shooting him down.
Jackson plays s******ing nemesis, The Villain, to Firth's Jack London, a spy who takes his nephew Gary under his wing to get him away from the trouble on his council estate.

The role is a return to type for Jackson, who played another stone-hearted hitman, Jules, in Pulp Fiction.
But the scene might not be all it seems, as the movie is based on a comic book series known for its fantastical plot twists.
Lady Gaga is rumoured to be joining the cast-list, in a cameo role as well as David Beckham, Adele and Taylor Swift.

Another actor excited to be involved is Edward Holcroft, friend of Douglas Booth and rising star who will be appearing in Vampire Academy with Modern Family's Sarah Hyland, Bond girl Olga Kurylenko and Joely Richardson.

I'm getting tired of Samuel L Jackson
Looks tongue in cheek enough to be fun.
It's like what The Avengers (the one with sexy Ralph Fiennes and Uma Thurman) wanted to be, but didn't really understand how to do it.
Poster. Neat, but it pales in comparison to the Transformers one from today.
Looks look it might be good.
One complaint. I'm apparently the only person on earth who seems to have had enough of Sam Jackson.
Looks good to me

So, what did you think? Yeah, I know. Go and buy it! You may as well watch the trailer again for Kingsman: The Secret Service too. October isn't that long away.
Moved from Octy to Febs
I hate you.
At least it wasn't Juney.
I was going to call Octy Doc Ock but decided against it.
This seems like fun
Saw the trailer during Gotham last night. I'm all in.
I like the concept, everything else looks awful. What's with Jackon's lisp?
This looks great @BIV
I don't want to sound like a queer or nothing, but you could do a lot worse than Colin Firth.
From the trailer, he comments on the Kingsmen's accents so it could be dramatic irony.
I agree with myself, this DOES look fun!
Looks great. I'm so in.
