Kick Ass and Eclipse clips New Eclipse & Kick Ass Movie Clips

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? icon razz New Eclipse & Kick Ass Movie Clips

KICK-ASS

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.

ECLIPSE

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.

  1. In the “Eclipse” clip, why can you see Edward in the mirror's reflection? Didn't “New Moon” start out with the you-can't-see-him-in-the-mirror dream? Please correct me if I'm wrong, but isn't that their reflection in the closet door mirror? Continuity anyone?

  2. You're right, thats definitely his reflection. Not sure about the whole mirrors thing in Twilight since I'm not a huge fan of the series, but that would be really funny if they're revealing major continuity errors in the clips that are supposed to be promoting the film.

  3. Actually in the Twilight world you can see the reflection of vampires in the mirror. Edward's reflection not showing was only Bella's dream. That's what she thought but Edward tells her that you can in the book.

  4. I'm not talking book continuity I'm talking movie continuity. Unless Edward comments on his having a reflection in “New Moon” after the dream in the movie, then there is a serious lack of connection between the two films. Does he say he has a reflection in the movie?

  5. In New Moon Bella is not upset in the dream that she cannot see Edward’s reflection (she can), she is upset that the old woman who she thinks is her gran is actually her.

  6. At the beginning of new moon, the point of the mirror dream is not that Bella cannot see Edward (because his reflection is visible!) it is that the woman in the reflection which she thought was her gran, is actually her when she is older. Hence, her worries about ageing as her boyfriend is eternally 17

  7. I had a friend of mine answer this question for me. In the book – - Edward tells Bella he does have a reflection (because he shows up in the picture). He never says that line in the movie. Therefore movie continuity is skewed unless they add in a line when Edward shows Bella where he hid all her things under floorboards.

    I'm not talking meaning here people just continuity from movie to movie, not from book to movie.

  8. I understand what you're saying Jessie, but in the film we actually get to see the picture (when Bella is putting them in her album) so we know he has a reflection, it is shown to us but not told. Also in the film, we don't see Edward telling Bella about the things under the floorboards.

    Going back to your original post, and as I said before, the purpose of the dream/nightmare is Bella worrying about getting old not Edward's reflection.
