New character one sheets for Kingsman: The Secret Service arrive online

20th Century Fox have recently released a batch of character one sheets for Matthew Vaughn's (Kick-Ass) take on Mark Millar and Dave Gibbon's comic book, Kingsman: The Secret Service.

These latest For Your Eyes Only (1981) homaging posters showcase the amazingly sharp looking legs of Sofia Boutella's Gazelle, an amputee whose injury has been put to bloody good use, thanks to the addition of two blades.

Originally titled simply The Secret Service (after the graphic novel from which it's adapted), Kingsman: The Secret Service combines old school suave James Bond type (Colin Firth) and a street smart free runner (Taron Egerton), brought under the older man's wing for training. The comic's uncle/nephew dynamic has been jettisoned, but its Pygmalion style 'rags to Savile Row' theme remains. First mission: foiling a celebrity kidnap that's part of a master plan by Valentine (Samuel L. Jackson). Michael Caine (Harry Brown) is also aboard, adding to the films spy pedigree.

Co-written by Vaughn and regular collaborator Jane Goldman (Stardust), Kingsman: The Secret Service also stars Mark Strong (Welcome To The Punch), Jack Davenport (Pirates Of The Caribbean: At World's End), Sophie Cookson, Tom Prior and Jordan Long.

Kingsman: The Secret Service will be stealing into UK cinemas on 29 January next year.
