Colin Firth and Samuel L. Jackson brought the beatdown while talking about their new film “Kingsman: The Secret Service”. Firth said he was probably the last choice anyone would have to portray a “Bond-type” character, which made him a good choice for the role. He said it was definitely the most physical training he had ever had to do for a role. Samuel L. Jackson answered a reporters phone which was ringing during the press conference, much to the amusement of the room and the amazement of the person on the other end of the phone.
“Kingsman: The Secret Service” opens in the U.S. October 24th.
Zachary Quinto and Hannah Ware spoke about their film “Hitman: Agent 47” which opens February of 2015. Adapted from the popular video game, the film was originally set to star Paul Walker, who was unfortunatley killed before production began. The film shot in Berlin and Singapore and Quinto spoke about the differences in shooting in both cities. The actors weren’t able to say much about the film itself so as not to give away too much of the plot, but they did assure us that the film is going to be very interesting visually.
