Upcoming Spy DVDs: Kingsman: The Secret Service (2015)
20th Century Fox Home Entertainment has announced Blu-ray and DVD releases of Kingsman: The Secret Service on June 9 (following a digital release nearly a month earlier on May 15). According to The Digital Bits, extras on the Blu-ray will include the 6-part documentary Kingsman: The Secret Service Revealed ("Panel to Screen: The Education of a 21st Century Super-Spy," "Heroes and Rogues," "Style All His Own," "Tools of the Trade," "Breathtakingly Brutal," and "Culture Clash: The Comic Book Origins of the Secret Service") and galleries of behind-the-scenes images and photos of sets and props. Matthew Vaughn's Kingsman, about a delinquent teen (Taron Edgerton) recruited by a John Steed-like gentleman spy (Colin Firth) to follow in his footsteps and save the world in fashionable suits, proved the first big hit of a year filled with spy movies, grossing over $400 million worldwide and reportedly spawning a sequel.
