Swackett, 20th Century Fox Partner to Promote Colin Firth’s ‘Kingsman: The Secret Service’

Swackett® and 20th Century Fox are partnering to bring Swackett users exclusive access to smart weather-aware clothing options based on Matthew Vaughn’s spy thriller “Kingsman: The Secret Service”, which opens in theaters on Feb. 13, 2015.

Starting today, Swackett users will have the opportunity to enable the Kingsman Mobile Technical Reference Edition for Swackett. Available in Swackett apps for Mac, iPhone, iPad, Android and desktop platforms, this special app edition dresses the famous Swackett peeps for local weather conditions based on clothing worn by characters in the feature film — with additional technical imagery designed with the same look and feel. It’s fun, fast and stylish — as you would expect from any Kingsman technical device.

“Swackett is a perfect partner to execute a never been done before personal mobile experience based on our highly anticipated movie ‘Kingsman: The Secret Service.’ We have a film that audiences are responding to in an amazing way, so we wanted Swackett to help those audiences experience Kingsman in a personal way every day, every time they check the weather,” said Eric Dane, director of digital marketing at 20th Century Fox.

“This is a very exciting, first-of-its-kind digital experience that enables Swackett users in 67 countries worldwide to bring Kingsman into their personal lives in a useful way every day — right on the mobile phone in their pocket.
