Two Sides Of Colin Firth In Kingsman And Magic In The Moonlight Trailers

Jolly good, Colin Firth. Having starred in The Railway Man alongside Nicole Kidman, the Oscar winner will deliver a pair of distinctly unique performances later this year in Magic in the Moonlight and Kingsmen: The Secret Service. One is a charming comedy, the other is action-oriented.

The first to arrive is Woody Allen’s Magic in the Moonlight (opening July 25th). In the film Firth plays a man who is tasked with trying to debunk the work of a spiritualist (Emma Stone). From the looks of it, it would seem that Allen is on autopilot, much like he was with You Will Meet a Tall Dark Stranger some years back.

This next trailer looks a bit more promising. Maybe it’s because it’s from the same guy that gave us Stardust, and X-Men: First Class. Matthew Vaughn, who also adapted Mark Millar’s comic Kick-Ass, is again adapting another Millar work. This time it is Kingsman: The Secret Service (opening October 24th). The movie tells the story of a super-secret British spy organization that recruits an unrefined but promising street kid into the agency’s ultra-competitive training program just as a global threat emerges from a twisted tech genius. So it’s like James Bond meets Oliver Twist.

Colin Firth stars and he’s joined by Michael Caine and Samuel L. Jackson.
