‘Argylle’ and the Death of the Winking Action Movie – The Ringer

Filed under:
Plus, Sean is joined by Mads Mikkelsen and Nikolaj Arcel to discuss ‘The Promised Land’ and much more

Sean and Amanda discuss the wildly unsuccessful elements of Argylle, Matthew Vaughn’s meta spy thriller starring Bryce Dallas Howard and Sam Rockwell (1:00). Then, they try to contextualize it within what Sean has dubbed “wink action”—a subgenre of action that rose around the turn of the 2010s and has finally started to peter out (44:00). Finally, Sean is joined by Mads Mikkelsen and Nikolaj Arcel to discuss The Promised Land and the key creative differences between making movies in Hollywood and making movies internationally (1:20:00).
