Is it me or is 20th Century Fox totally pimping out Taron Egerton in their latest promos? The first couple focused mostly on the premise of the comic book adaptation. But lately, there’s definitely more visuals of the 25-year-old Welsh actor without his shirt. Not that I’m complaining.

Kingsman: The Secret Service is based on the comic book written by Mark Millar. It tells the story of a super-secret spy organization that recruits an unrefined but promising street kid (Egerton) into the agency’s ultra-competitive training program just as a global threat emerges from a twisted tech genius.

Matthew Vaughn dropped out of directing X-Men: Days of Future Past to direct this film which boasts an impressive cast and plenty of cameos. Michael Caine, Colin Firth, Samuel L. Jackson, Lady Gaga, Elton John, Adele and David Beckham all appear in the movie.

If Egerton’s buff little bod isn’t enough to lure you in, the array of slick blazers might entice you. Seriously, I want every sport coat featured in the trailer. Kingsman: The Secret Service hits theaters nationwide on Friday, February 13, 2015. Check out the trailer below.

Anything can happen during live television. This seems to hold true mostly for news reporters. They’re sometimes the victim of animals attacking, being hit by random objects and occasionally caught saying an expletive or doing something embarrassing. Thankfully cameras are there to catch every single hilarious unscripted moment and gaffe.

Every month, News Be Funny compiles the best bloopers from local news in the United States and around the world. If you’ve missed their monthly montages, don’t fret. They’ve picked the best of the best for their year-end montage. Check out 15 minutes worth of hilarity below.

If I could crash only one Oscar party, it’d be a tough choice between Elton John’s gala or Vanity Fair’s shindig. There’s plenty of star power at each event and no doubt tasty eats and delicious cocktails. However, after checking out Vanity Fair’s Instagram account, I’m leaning towards theirs.

Several attendees posed for the publication’s photobooth under the watchful eye of photographer Mark Seliger. Donatella Versace posed with her latest celeb ambassadors, Lady Gaga and Nolan Gerard Funk, for a stunning photo that could easily pass for an official campaign pic. Other standouts include Selena Gomez, Naomi Watts, Neil Patrick Harris and of course, the queen of the night, Miss Lupita Nyong’o. Check out a few below.

Adam’s Terrifying Revenge Movie Pick: Oldboy

In: Adam, Movies
oldboy-movie-review

A cross between Kill Bill, Hard Candy and Running Scared, Oldboy is a tale of revenge and mystery- a pretty damn good one too! Not wanting to give away anything more than the trailer would, I’ll tell you that this movie follows the search for answers and vengeance by a man imprisoned in a Satre-esque prison for 20 years. Played sexily (if you’re into daddies, and WOOF am I ever) by Josh Brolin, the protagonist is someone you’ll love to hate and hate to love as he vacillates between total dick and wounded pup. He hunts without discrimination the men and the men behind the men who trapped him for two decades leaving an impossible body count along the way.

This one is bloody. While its famed director Spike Lee doesn’t go all Quentin Tarantino with exploding veins of geysering blood, there is definitely some old world kung fu choreography that would look fake if you saw it in real life but gives this movie an otherworldly quality. It’s almost like watching a horrific dream sequence and you keep waiting for either the main character or yourself to wake up from it. Josh well embodies the dogmatic and determined killer who won’t rest until justice is paid and he can reunite with his daughter. Along the way, the fighter meets an overly sexy (seriously, HOW did an Olsen girl turn out so pretty?) Elizabeth Olsen who is really killing it these days with actual talent (sorry Michelle and Michelle!). The connection between them is undeniable and who cares about the age difference: they’re both hot. From violence to sex to more violence, this is definitely a GUY’S movie.

Dominic Cooper Has Reasonable Doubts In New Trailer

Typically a January release date signals a lack of confidence from the movie studio. After watching the first trailer for Reasonable Doubt, I think it has the potential to be a small sleeper hit. Hopefully, all the surprising twists and turns in this game of cat and mouse weren’t all revealed in the clip.

Up-and-coming District Attorney Mitch Brockden (Dominic Cooper) commits a fatal hit-and-run and feels compelled to throw the case against the accused criminal found with the body and blamed for the crime. Following the trial, Mitch’s worst fears come true when he realizes that he acquitted a guilty man, and he soon finds himself on the hunt for the killer before more victims pile up.

Reasonable Doubt lands in theaters January 17 and also stars Gloria Reuben and Samuel L. Jackson. Check out the trailer below.

The first Avenger is back. Marvel Comics just unleashed the first trailer for Captain America: The Winter Soldier. Chris Evans and his bulging biceps return for a second go round as the titular superhero. This time he’s joined by Scarlet Johansson, Samuel L. Jackson, Robert Redford and Sebastian Stan who returns as the Winter Soldier. We also see the first glimpse of Anthony Mackie as the Falcon.

The sequel takes place after Steve Rogers helped save New York City in The Avengers. He’s now living in Washington, DC trying to adjust to modern life after being unearthed from a 70-year icy sleep. I know I’d be cranky ;)

Directed by Anthony and Joe Russo, The Winter Soldier also stars Emily VanCamp, Cobie Smulders, Frank Grillo and Hayley Atwell. It comes out April 4, 2014. I wasn’t completely in love with the first film, but this one looks really good. Check out the spankin’ new trailer below.

Even though both Chris Brown and Miley Cyrus recently topped a survey naming them as the worst celebrity role models, it appears some parents are angrier with Samuel L. Jackson. At least they are in this Funny or Die clip.

Apparently, if Jackson is in a film, you probably shouldn’t let little ones watch them. His roles in Shaft, Unbreakable, Jungle Fever and several more films have inspired children to behave badly and quote age-inappropriate dialogue. Watch parents yell, “F*ck you, Samuel L. Jackson!” in the video below.

Josh Brolin Is Pretty Damn Fine In Oldboy Trailer

In: Donovan, Movies

This looks so good and not just because Josh Brolin looks sexy as hell. I can’t believe it’s from Spike Lee. It’s definitely not his usual type of joint that examines race relations or political issues. Apparently, it’s a remake of the 2003 South Korean cult film, Oldboy.

“This is the first time I am doing something like this, so it’s interesting how you can stay true to the essence of the original source material, but make it something different, and I know that’s what we are going to do with this one.” – Spike Lee

The film stars Josh Brolin as Joe Doucett who is kept imprisoned for 20 years in solitary confinement without any acknowledgement as to why he’s being held captive. During his imprisonment he discovers his wife has been killed. When he’s surprisingly released, he goes on a mission to find the person responsible for his imprisonment and his daughter. On his quest, he discovers that his life is still caught in conspiracy and torment. Check out the red band trailer below. Oldboy hits theaters on October 25.
