Fox studios have put back the release of Kingsman: The Secret Service staring Colin Firth, Samuel L. Jackson and Michael Caine until Valentines Day weekend February 2015.
This will place it directly up against one of the most anticipated movies of next year “Fifty Shades of Grey” they have also moved the “Poltergeist” reboot back until July 2015.
Kingsaman was intended to be released on Oct 24 in the US and UK. But the studio has pointed out that Oct 24 is a very busy weekend with the release of the Bill Murray comedy “St. Vincent” as well as “Laggies,”” A24’s “ “Ouija,” and finally “Paranormal Activity 5”
This is a bit of a disappointment as Kingsman was arguably the movie I was most looking forward to for the rest of 2014. And to put it head to head with 50 Shades will be putting two potential big adult ‘date’ movies up against each other.
So it sounds like one will come off worst in that fight and I feel it may well be Kingsman that will take a beating from the gigantic 50 Shades female fan-base.
Who do you think will win 50 Shades or Kingsman?
