First Footage From Matthew Vaughn's Adaptation Of THE SECRET SERVICE Impresses

The first footage from Matthew Vaughn's (Stardust) highly anticipated adaptation of Mark Millar (The Ultimates) and Dave Gibbons' (Watchmen) The Secret Service has been shown off today, and it not only sounds amazing, but the reaction from those in attendance is very positive!

At CinemaCon earlier today, 20th Century Fox showed off the first footage from Matthew Vaughn's (X-Men: First Class) big screen adaptation of Mark Millar and Dave Gibbons' The Secret Service. As you can see from the reactions beneath the description - which comes to us courtesy of Superhero Hype - it sounds as if this will be yet another great movie from the Kick-Ass helmer, and perhaps even one of 2014's best comic book movies; no easy feat in a year which sees the release of the likes of Captain America: The Winter Soldier and Guardians of the Galaxy! It was recently revealed that the release date of The Secret Service has been changed from March 6th, 2015 to October 24, 2014, so not long to wait now! Let us know what you think of the description in the usual place.



The scene opens in a pub where Firth's Jack is having a chat with Eggsy about his potential, but the obstinate youth isn't really listening to anything the man in front of him has to say, even though he clearly seems to know a lot about the troubled youth. In the middle of their conversation, a bunch of young goons come into the pub after Eggsy who stole one of their cars, and the lad suggests that Jack should go but he wants to finish his beer, so he sits there despite the threat of numbers in the group of hoodlums. After enough goading, Jack finally gets up and walks to the door but instead of going out, he locks it–similar to the scene from The Equalizer shown at the Sony presentation the night before–and states that "manners make the man." When the lead thug asks him to repeat himself, Jack takes his umbrella and uses it to hit a beer mug right into the guy's face and while the others hesitate, one of them finally lunges towards Jack and is taken out just as violently. Firth's Jack is more John Steed than James Bond as he takes out the rest of the group just as effectively using a combination of hand-to-hand combat and his umbrella, but when one of the thugs pulls out a gun to shoot him, he opens the umbrella and we find out it's bulletproof. Not only that, but there's also a built-in gun that he uses to shoot the last thug in the chest. The bartender is on the phone ready to call the cops so Jack uses his watch to send a tranquilizer dart into his neck, knocking him out. After this scene, we got a nice variety of footage with Firth's character narrating and telling us about the Kingsmen, as well as seeing a few shots of Samuel L. Jackson as the villain Dr. James Arnold, in an odd combination of red baseball cap and glasses.
