Colin Firth is a top super spy AND an Asian magician flirting with Emma Stone

In two separate films. Obviously.

Colin Firth fans, you’re in for a treat.


Today you are being spoiled with not one, but two, trailers featuring the former-Mr Darcy. And from bald-headed magician to top MI6 operative, the roles the 53-year-old is playing couldn’t be more different… 

First up Magic in the Moonlight. Firth is charmed, confused and overwhelmed as Stanley a performing oriental magician and “the greatest debunker of fake spiritualists” who travels from London to the south of France to prove convincing spiritualist – and “very clever little humbug” – Sophie (played by Emma Stone) is a fraud.

An unlikely love story follows in the Woody Allen directed movie set in the fashionable parties and beautiful beachfronts of 1920s France.  

Magic in the Moonlight will be in UK cinemas 19 September.

For fans who like their Firth a little less bumbling, but just as British and just as charming, there’s the first trailer for Kingsman: The Secret Service. 

Here Firth is giving 007 a run for his money and becoming a super cool action hero. He’s even got a secret closet full of shiny shoes and hand grenades. 

Firth plays Uncle Jack in the movie about a top secret spy agency who are testing new recruits as the country comes under threat from a “twisted tech genius”.


Kingsman: The Secret Service will be in UK cinemas 17 October.
