Kingsman: The Secret Service
The works of Mark Millar on the big screen have been a mixed bag. "Wanted" was a big hit, "Kick-Ass" a modest one, while no one bothered with "Kick-Ass 2." So it leaves the fate of "Kingsman: The Secret Service" a bit up in the air. Will it be too niche for a mainstream audience, or will it have crossover appeal? We'll soon see when the first trailer drops this week, but first, a handful of new images have arrived to introduce you to the film's world.

X-Men: Days Of Future Past, Wolverine
You better grab a drink and take a seat — Fox just set a batch of dates for the 2017/18 calendar, and they've got a very tentpole heavy future laid out. And while this is the part where we lament the state of the industry, frankly, it is what it is so let's just break down what they've got coming.

Developing for nearly a decade, the adaptation of Deborah Moggach's "Tulip Fever"has seen all kinds of names — John Madden, Keira Knightley, Jude Law, Peter Chelsom, Tom Hooper — kick the tires, but nothing coalesced. But earlier this year the wheels started spinning again with Alicia Vikander became attached, and now she may be joined by Dane DeHaan.

While he might not be rolling with the X-Men, Matthew Vaughn is keeping one foot in the comic book store as he gears up his big screen adaptation of buddy Mark Millar's "The Secret Service." And with Colin Firth and Taron Egerton already set, the helmer has now found the person who will be causing all the trouble in the movie.

Well, it looks like "The Secret Service," the next Matthew Vaughn-directed adaptation of a Mark Millar comic book, is almost fully staffed with secret agents. According to a Variety report, newcomer Taron Egerton has landed the lead role of a young street tough who is turned into a super spy, in a story Millar has described as "My Fair Lady" meets James Bond. Meanwhile, the hunt for a female lead is still on, with Bella Heathcote and Emma Watson looking like frontrunners.

As an actor, Colin Firth has proved remarkably resilient over his thirty-year career. After breaking through in 1984's "Another Country," a series of strong performances followed that never quite saw him become a huge star. But suddenly, 1995's TV version of "Pride & Prejudice" made him a heartthrob, and led to roles in Oscar-winners "The English Patient" and "Shakespeare In Love." Just as the roles started to dry up again, he played another seminal romantic lead in "Bridget Jones' Diary." And then, as his career seemed to creep into self-parody with the likes of "Mamma Mia" and "St. Trinian's," he got back-to-back Oscar nominations for "A Single Man" and "The King's Speech," winning for the latter.

Matthew Vaughn doesn't tend to be the sort of director to get attached to a zillion projects. The director behind "Kick-Ass" and "X-Men: First Class" found his schedule wide open when he dropped out of helming "X-Men: Days Of Future Past" last fall, and while he was briefly rumored as a contender for "Star Wars: Episode 7" and signed up to produce Josh Trank's "Fantastic Four," his next gig is actually one that has been brewing for a long time now, and it will reunite him with an old pal.

Even though "X-Men: First Class" was a big hit, earning over $350 million worldwide, Matthew Vaughn has kept a low profile since the summer with barely a peep out of the director. He's likely been recharging his batteries after a whirlwind production and press tour that saw him rushing to get the superhero movie locked in time, all while talking to basically everybody on the planet about the film. While there was much talk of a '70s or '80s set 'First Class' sequel in the run up to the film's release, that chatter has pretty much died off. While Fox has "The Wolverine" on deck for their next trip in to the 'X-Men' franchise, Vaughn is beginning to consider what he'll do next and he's looking to "Kick-Ass" creator Mark Millar once again, with two potential projects lining up as possibilities.
