kick ass movie trailer Two New Kick Ass TV Spots

As if you needed any more reasons to catch Matthew Vaughn’s comic book movie Kick-Ass in theaters, Lionsgate has just released two brand new TV spots for the movie to further fuel the excitement.

Just as a reminder, Kick-Ass is based on the violent and profane Mark Millar comic book of the same name. It’s about a teenager who one day decides to dress up in a costume, give himself a name (the titular Kick-Ass) and proceeds to try and beat the crap out of the bad guys in his town (often to no avail). His actions inspire others and before you can say “It’s a bird! It’s a plane!” people are dressing up as superheroes, including Hit-Girl (Chloe Moretz), Red Mist (Christopher Mintz-Plasse) and Big Daddy (Nicolas Cage).

The movie comes to us courtesy of director Matthew Vaughn (Layer Cake) who has also co-written the script with Jane Goldman (they both worked together in the same capacity on Stardust).

Check out the two new TV spots below. The first one in particular, although quite short, is insanely well put together:

I’m not really familiar with Millar’s Kick-Ass comic but I’ve heard it’s very violent and filled with bad language. Thankfully, Vaughn and Goldman have decided to make the movie in the same vein and haven’t dumbed it down in order to appeal to a younger audience. Apart from Inception, Kick-Ass is my most anticipated movie of 2010, and as someone unfamiliar with the comic that’s quite something.

What do you think of the latest TV spots for Kick-Ass? In case you missed it, check out the latest full length trailer, as well as our coverage of the Kick-Ass NYC screening.

Kick-Ass hits theaters in the U.S. on April 16th. The lucky folks in the UK (myself included) get to see it almost three weeks earlier on March 26th (now c’mon, don’t be jealous icon smile Two New Kick Ass TV Spots ).
