January 20, 2015

1

Kingsman: The Secret Service has managed to pull off a film merchandising first by teaming with online luxury menswear retailer Mr. Porter to create the Kingsman Collection, comprising of suiting, clothing, and accessories, as used in the actual film.

After having its name changed from simply The Secret Service, and the release date of the film moved from October of 2014, Kingsman: The Secret Service finally premiered at London’s Leicester Square on Wednesday.     Due to these changes, there has been an almost palpable sense of anticipation for the film.

It would be easy to be cynical about yet another entry into one of the many superhero franchises that seem to dominate the landscape of modern cinema these days, but at least with “The Wolverine” there seems have been a conscious effort to mark the film out as more than just another comic book summer […]

What with being caught up with all the splendid events surrounding the 50th Anniversary of the James Bond film franchise, I completely forgot to post this.
