Kingsman: The Secret Service became an instant action favorite, due to the charisma of its leading characters and one seriously bonkers church sequence. It was also quite successful at the box office, which led to the inevitable rumors of a sequel — one which might include American Kingsman agents. Writer/director Matthew Vaughn has now officially confirmed that he is indeed writing a sequel…right now, as a matter of fact.

A few months ago, Matthew Vaughn’s Kingsman: The Secret Service seemed like a risky move, a film that seemed to destined to get taken down by the hype juggernaut that was 50 Shades of Grey. $400 million later, it was one of the year’s biggest surprise hits. So yeah, of course a Kingsman 2 is now in the works.

Despite opening against the juggernaut that is 50 Shades of Grey, the wildly transgressive and well-reviewed Kingsman: The Secret Service still held its own at the box office, making enough money to ensure talk of a potential sequel. And here we are, about to talk about a Kingsman 2 and whether or nor Colin Firth will reprise his role as the dashing and deadly genleman spy, Harry Hart. Massive spoilers lurk below.

After months of bad jokes and eye-rolling from the internet hive mind, 50 Shades of Grey has arrived and it’s just as huge as everyone predicted. Any movie adaptation of a book that sold hundreds of millions of copies is going to open big, even if that book/movie in question is a BDSM quasi-romantic drama that has as many fervent detractors as it does admirers. But it was a solid week at the box office overall, with the other new release, Kingsman: The Secret Service, holding its own against a movie that may very well be one of the biggest releases of the year.

Matthew Vaughn once again proves how deft he is at adapting comic book material with Kingsman: The Secret Service, introducing us to Colin Firth’s excellent action skills and making a star out of newcomer Taron Egerton. Naturally, we’re all wondering if there might be a sequel to Kingsman, an energetic and wild James Bond riff that offers up a world of secret spies that might lend itself well to further adventures. Fans of the film will be pleased to hear that Vaughn has revealed a sequel is a possibility, and it might expand on the world of Kingsman beyond London.

Dogs can’t play Catchphrase! Try telling that to Triumph the Insult Comic Dog, who faced off against perhaps the most motley crew ever assembled to play a Tonight Show game – well, so far, at least – including host Jimmy Fallon, guest Jack McBrayer (forever an NBC page to us), and Colin Firth. If everyone present looks confused, it’s because they are, almost gloriously so.

‘Kingsman: The Secret Service’ Review: The Goofy James Bond Throwback You Didn’t Know You Needed

For decades, people have made fun of Roger Moore. Moore starred in more James Bond movies than anyone else, but his entire twelve-year, seven-film run is widely regarded today as a goofy, cartoonish disaster. After Moore retired from the role following 1985’s ‘A View to a Kill,’ the Bond franchise refocused, growing darker and more serious. Now 007 belongs to Daniel Craig, who’s as stern as Moore was cheeky. Craig’s Bonds (and the Jason Bourne movies that helped inspire their solemn tone) have been so hugely successful, that there is an assumption that over-the-top spy movies like Moore’s wouldn’t work in 2015. ‘Kingsman: The Secret Service’ proves they can.

In this week’s ‘Kingsman: The Secret Service,’ Samuel L. Jackson plays Richmond Valentine, a power-mad tech billionaire with dreams of world domination. Richmond Valentine’s a pretty cool character name, but according to our highly scientific and totally objective calculations, it’s just the 28th-coolest name of Jackson’s long career. Working from his IMDb page (and eliminating any character where he didn’t get at least a first name), we created this list, the definitive (again, totally mathematical and absolutely beyond reproach) ranking of all his character names. You’re welcome.

IMDB.com lists 159 acting credits for Samuel L. Jackson over a career that’s spanned more than 40 years. Jackson’s as versatile as he is prolific; though he’s likely best known for his action films and his flair for language (and especially profanity, his skills as a chameleon might be underrated. He’s made 160 films and television shows and looked like 160 wildly different people. Few actors seem to delight in the specifics of costuming, hair, and makeup as much as he does, and few have exhibited a wider array of hairstyles, facial hair, and wardrobes. From the earliest days of his career all the way up to next week’s ‘Kingsman: The Secret Service,’ nobody’s worn silver hair, a kilt, or exaggerated octopus-style eye makeup quite like Samuel L. Jackson. In honor of his great achievements in outlandish onscreen fashion, please enjoy this gallery spotlighting just a few of his many sartorial highlights.
