A couple of clips have recently appeared online for two highly anticipated movies: Matthew Vaughn’s awesome-looking comic-book adaptation, Kick-Ass, and the third installment in the successful Twilight franchise, Eclipse. I know, two very different movies if ever there were any…

To make your life easier, instead of posting them separately we’ve decided to couple them together. Aren’t we kind to you here at Screen Rant? :P


First up, let’s take a look at a couple of new clips from Kick-Ass. If you’ve been following the promo materials for the movie, you’ll probably be pretty damned psyched about it (if you’re interested, you’re probably dead inside…).

Keeping in tune with Mark Millar’s (Wanted) comic, director Matthew Vaughn (along with co-writer Jane Goldman) has kept the film R-rated, with all the profane language and bloody violence that comes along with it. Would you have it any other way?

Anyway, check out the two new clips below. One featuring the titular Kick-Ass putting on his costume and the other is him riding in the pimped out car of fellow “super hero,” Red Mist. Enjoy:

I have to admit, one of the few things I was skeptical about when first hearing about Kick-Ass was the casting of Christopher “McLovin” Mintz-Plasse as Red Mist. For some reason it just seemed like an odd casting choice (of course I haven’t read the comic, so perhaps Plasse is perfectly cast as that character).

However, the young actors actually looks great when you see him in the role – if that clip is any indication, he’ll have a lot of great lines in the rest of the movie.


Now that the comic book adaptation is out of the way, let’s get to the novel adaptation. That’s right you Twilighters, get ready to swoon over Bella and Edward in this clip from Eclipse, which is included on the DVD of New Moon. Take a look:

For anyone who’s sick of hearing about Twilight, I imagine (if you actually watched the clip) that was painful for you. But I also imagine for you fans of the franchise that you’ll watch it 50 times over until you get to see the movie this summer. I admit I’m looking forward to Eclipse, after liking Twilight but not liking New Moon. We’ll see in a few months if I end up back on the “liked it” side of the fence once more.

What do you think of these clips?

Kick-Ass hits U.S. theaters on April 16th, 2010 – but for lucky UK audiences it hits theaters on March 26th.

The Twilight Saga: Eclipse opens on June 30th, 2010.
