After spending years as director Guy Ritchie‘s producer, director Matthew Vaughn has emerged as one of the most exciting and original filmmakers working today.

Since then he has adapted several popular comic books and graphic novels to the big screen including ‘Stardust,’ ‘Kick-Ass,’ ‘X-Men: First Class,’ ‘Kingsman: The Secret Service,’ its sequel ‘Kingsman: The Golden Circle,’ and it’s prequel ‘The King’s Man.’

His new movie, the spy comedy ‘Argylle,’ which stars Henry Cavill, Bryce Dallas Howard and Sam Rockwell, opens in theaters on February 2nd.
