In the FOXlight: Will 'Kingsman: The Secret Service' Rule This Weekend's Box Office?

Which weekend flick are you more interested in: "Kingsmen: The Secret Service" or "Fifty Shades of Grey"?

 

Movie theaters are flooded with action-packed comic book adaptations, but none are quite like "Kingsmen: The Secret Service." Starring such cinematic talents as Colin Firth, Michael Caine and Samuel L. Jackson, "Kingsmen" just might have what it takes to usher in a new breed of blockbuster.

"We always wondered, 'Where do guys like James Bond come from?'" explained Jackson of his new film, which concerns a street-wise young man being recruited to train at an elite spy program. 

"Take every element that you like from sorta '60s and '70s espionage movies, and then crank it up to 11," adds English actor Jack Davenport.

And although "Kingsman" is debuting on the same Valentine's Day weekend as the much-discussed film adaptation of "Fifty Shades of Grey," Samuel L. Jackson definitely knows which one he'd rather see.

"'Kingsman' is a better date movie that 'Fifty Shades of Grey' because you can't make the 'Kingsmen' at home. You can make your own version of 'Fifty Shades of Grey' at home, and it's probably going to be better than the one you're going to see."
