Fox Pushes Back 'Kingsman: The Secret Service' to February 2015

Briefly: For an unknown reason, 20th Century Fox has decided to shift Matthew Vaughn's comic book adaptation Kingsman: The Secret Service from its original October 24th release date all the way back to February 13th, 2015. The new release date was originally intended for Fox's co-production of the Poltergeist remake with MGM, but that film has also been pushed back to July 24th, 2015. Does that mean Fox has a lot of confidence in their horror remake and not as much in their spy action thriller starring Colin Firth? It's hard to say, but Kingsman is good counter-programming against Fifty Shades of Grey.

2015 just keeps getting bigger and bigger. Next thing you know, WB will announce that due to time needed for visual effects, The Hobbit 3 will be getting pushed to March of 2015. 2015 can be described in two ways: A glorious, sure-to-be record shattering year at the box office....but it will also be an absolute blood-bath. Many of these movies will be HUGE, but many of them will suffer due to the over saturation of the marketplace.

It looks terrible this movie. I don't usually say that too much on here any more, but it really looks bad.

I dont understand how you can say that. Matt vaughn has done no wrong as of yet. it looks action packed, visually stunning and has a great cast working with, what appears to be, a great script.

Does look action packed and almost old James Bond style, just the 'hood comes good' by becoming a posh mercenary Mary Poppins style assassin is a little strange. As outright fantasy it will probably be fun enough, the cast is decent.

I dont know about outright fantasy but it doesnt have too serious a tone and there seems to be some outlandish stuff going on.
