Kick-Ass Trailer Comes Early!

kick ass movie trailer Kick Ass Trailer Comes Early!

The first widely released official trailer for Kick-Ass wasn’t meant to hit the interwebs until this Friday, at least according to the official site, but it’s out now and we have it here for you!

Kick-Ass is the precedent setting comic book movie by Matthew Vaughn who took it upon himself to make the movie his own way, the proper way, without the restrictions of Hollywood studios. Instead he made it true to the comics, earned the support of the fans with a huge presentation at Comic-Con and had distributors start a bidding war for it after the fact.

As we know, Lionsgate happily landed the film and set its release for next spring keeping the film intact and paying tribute to Vaughn’s work.

The footage shown at Comic-Con had fans excited and now you can share in that too with this little taste of what’s to come – watch and enjoy!

It looks like a lot of fun and trust me, from the Comic-Con footage we saw in San Diego, this is but a hint of the entertainment to be had.

Kick-Ass is based the comic-series written by Mark Millar and illustrated by John Romita, Jr. and the film adaptation (written by Jane Goldman) stays true to the story about a young student named Dave Lizewski (Aaron Johnson) who makes the decision to become a “real-life superhero.”

After making his costume and naming himself “Kick-Ass” and sets out to fight crime while not actually having any superpowers himself. This leads to more heroes and villains as the harsh realization of what being a superhero is all about sets in, surrounded in a nice comedic tone.

Alongside Aaron Johnson, the film stars Nicolas Cage, Chloe Moretz, Mark Strong, Xander Berkeley and Christopher Mintz-Plasse.

What do you think of the trailer?

Kick-Ass opens April 16, 201o.

  1. How fun did that look? Come on 2010…don’t be the let down 2009 was.

  2. Not interested…Fromage…

  3. hehehe some armenian guy with mental health issues hehehe

    btw in armenian australian hehehe

  4. looks awesome.

  5. Looks good, but still not that sold on it…

  6. Looks… well the name suits it perfectly.

  7. YEAH, BABY!

    Looks pretty close to the source (read: comic book) material! I’m jazzed!

  8. I can’t find the comic anywhere.
    This will be seen by me though.

  9. I read the title of this and expected something entirely different… Heh heh heh… :-)

  10. @ Kofi. Lol! :D

  11. yeah i think i still need more convincing.

  12. Looks like it follows the comic closely, the first scene in a trailer with the Bird Guy is the first few pages in the first issue of Kick-Ass! I like!

  13. Heh, looks fun and pretty dark. I’m in.

  14. I know I tend to be the voice of doom and gloom around here, but that looks like fun! Very impressive. More movies should be made this way, let directors and writers have the control, then let studios fight over the finished product. That approach has worked well here.

  15. As soon as I heard “Nicholas Cage” I was turned off. He bothers me. He’s a terrible actor.

  16. @ twistedburton,

    I understand your trepidation about Cage but he has some incredibly funny scenes in this, especially the scene shown at Comic-Con.

    Give it a chance, I think you may find that he’s right for his role in this. But, we’ll wait until we see more :)

  17. Looks like fun to me .

  18. Rob Keyes & Twisted Burton :

    This is Nic Cages best role appart from The Rock. I read the script and not only does he have a lot of funny scenes, but two very emotional ones…. and at the very very end, hes involved in a very powerful scene.

    When you watch it, youll end up really caring about these characters.

    Interestingly enough, when AICN watched a screening of this movie they thought the very same.

    “Now honey, a bullet travels at 700 MPH, it wont hurt more then a punch in the chest”

    Thank you for showing this trailer SR =]

  19. LMAO!!!!im def goin to see it now. I got a Superbad tone with superheroes

  20. My thoughts on the footage that was shown at Comic-Con:

    Really looking forward to this one.

    Vic

  21. that bird guy still had bad ass costume

  22. I agree with the post about Cage I think he is a pretty forgettable actor. I do however think he can occasionally be funny and the rest of the cast looks stellar so I’m def pumped for this one. And by the way Cage’s best role was not the rock, it was Lord of War by far.

  23. the funny thing is… I have thought about that. lol
