kick ass hit girl costume Red Band Kick Ass Trailer for Hit Girl

She had her own poster debut last week, she may be the star of one of 2010′s coolest movies and now she’s got a red band trailer all to herself; It’s Hit-Girl!

Hit-Girl, played by Chloe Moretz, is arguably the most extreme of the characters in Mark Millar and John Romita, Jr.’s popular comic book series, Kick-Ass, and from what we’re hearing from the screenings for the movie, she brings the most memorable and impactful performance.

As I mentioned before when discussing the Hit-Girl poster, I caught up in the series the other day and in it, her character definitely brought in the highest kill count. Her Kick-Ass trailer will definitely shed light as to how and why this can be.

Hit-Girl is the daughter of Nicolas Cage’s Big Daddy character who raises her unlike any other girl. Watch and enjoy courtesy of Empire Online:

I can’t wait for this movie and it’s one of Screen Rant’s most anticipated movies of 2010.

Directed by Matthew Vaughn, Kick-Ass stars Aaron Johnson, Mark Strong, Xander Berkeley and Christopher Mintz-Plasse alongside Nicolas Cage and Chloe Moretz who you just met.

What do you think of Hit-Girl now?

If you missed it, check out the full Kick-Ass trailer from November.

Kick-Ass opens in theaters on April 16, 2010 and we’ll be there.

    “The world has changed, people have changed and kids are growing up faster than ever.”

    And WHY is this all happening, ya think? And because things are getting (IMHO) worse, we should just say “F-it!” and remove all the stops? What the heck, let’s just introduce kids to Caligula at age 7 because, you know, the world is changing and there’s nothing to be done about it.

    Except maybe good parenting, keeping an eye on who your children are friends with, monitoring what they watch on TV and movies, and talking to them about issues when they come up.

    I just LOVE the non-parental, fatalistic child rearing point of view.

    its not happening, it has happend. the thing we can do is not evolve it further. its not about just not giving a s**t. good parenting is the right way to make the outcome less damagable, but we cant like go back to the 50′s.

    i agree with both u and Dennis. the world has changed and kids now a days are learning about bad things all the time. but good parenting can make things better and be cautious.

    censoring everything isnt the answer either. parental control on everything is a better way to go. just my opinion though:p

  3. @Magnus and Vic. I agree with you, we need to find a happy medium but Magnus you can try and shelter your children all you want, kids these days learn things at an accelerated rate. I don’t say give up, I simply meant that if you see a 12 year old say some swears it isn’t a big deal, compared to all the other things going on in this world.

    Also, years ago kids may not have cursed as much but parents spanked kids, belts, rulers in school, etc. Maybe that’s why kids were more careful don’t you think? These days you can’t raise your voice to a child with out being criticized by Dr.Phil. Every parent has the right to shelter their child and parent the way they see fit, I just don’t like the ones coming on here and bad mouthing the movie, movie makers and parents who allow children to perform roles like this. Parent the way you want and don’t watch what you want, but don’t tell people how to raise their kids and tell us what not to watch.

  4. oh my God !

    i cant wait .

    can nick cage redeem himself ?
    it looks like a high possibility.

    “ah child, ya alwase knock me for a loop”

    High-Lair-ious !

  5. I agree with Vic, Dennis, and Magnus parental control all the way. If we let our kids watch movies like this and dont restrict them they will inevitably end up taking out vigilante justice with 22′s like this “hit girl” we have to set boundaries. That’s why i never let my children play with knives with bigger than 3in blades.

  6. Wait a minute, has this movie being rated alrdy, PG13 or R?
    I mean it has all the R elements to it surprisingly, by watching this trailer.

  7. You know when i was a kid my parents alredy knew what was going on in the movies and that it may have an impact on me. But they where smart enough not to forbid things. I was a smart kid … that was befor internet and they still knew i would get to see the movies eventualy. SO waht they did was watching it with me. Let’s say Alien or Predator 1 …they watched it with me and the very hard parts my mom just tokk her hand in front of my eyes. They talked to me during parts of the movie and made me understand why those parts are nothing for my age. But still they took their time to go through this stuff with me.

    Now fast forward to modern time. Most parents give a damn about this anymore. Those who don’t are usualy overreacting and just plain forbid everything without realising that the kid just has to go to school to get copys of those movies or they get told about them by schoolmates, so they are even more hyped about them. we live in a time where communication is faster then ever and that is why kids grow up faster. But at the same time they most of the time have noone to explain all those things to them. Parents have to go throu this with em, thats why they are parents. And honestly If my parents would have just ignored me back then….i honestly don’t know waht i would have become or waht my mindset would be today.

  8. This is no worse than Leon, how old was Natalie Portman in that movie? Exactly. Its called acting, it aint real.

  9. @Dennis

    no i agree with u. kids saying some or knowing swear words isnt a big deal. they will sooner or later stop or well learn when and when not to say it, dependent of how they have been raised by their parents and the environment they live in.

    @Deacon
    i think(hope) it is R-rated:p

  10. You know what I think is funny? I’ve raised my daughter to NOT sneak around behind my back. If she’s at a friend’s house and they’re going to watch a movie that she thinks is questionable, she calls home and asks if she can watch it. We’ve had times when we told her it’s not OK, gotten the parents on the phone and they end up watching something else.

    I feel sorry for those of you who’ve raised your kids to go behind your back.

    Vic

  11. It’s funny that people are getting worked up about this little girl. I agree that’s it’s jarring to hear her use the C word, but has anyone been on Xbox Live lately? A fifth grader called me a “F—ing F—-t” today. The N and F bombs dropped online by children 12 and under are enough to make a person lose hope for the future. But, making the swear word this sort of “forbidden fruit” just makes kids want to taste it. If people stopped acknowledging the concept of “no-no” words, then they wouldn’t be a big deal to anyone, parents or children. I know that is pretty idealistic thinking and it will never happen in our lifetime, but wouldn’t it be nice?

  12. I’m with you Vic, Dennis, Magnus. This is deplorable. If she had been older, same age as the Kick-Ass character, I wouldn’t have a problem with it, but… geez, man. Things have gone too far.

  13. WOW…I wasn’t expecting that preview at all! I’m not saying I won’t watch it or anything. It would take a lot more to offend me in a film…but wow, it looks ulra-violent with some little girl doing all the killing.

  14. My parents didn’t teach me that certain words were forbidden, they just taught me that they were very rude. Politeness is a big deal in my family. When I started learning more about the ways of the world, I was rather shocked, but now it’s not much of a big deal. It’s more like a minor annoyance. Common courtessy ain’t taught much no mo’.

  15. She’s 12!!!! That is a shame!! Exploitation for the sake of a laugh…

  16. I think the shocking part is that she is using that language in front of her father.

    I don’t know about you guys but I knew pretty much all the cuss words by the time I was 10. But I never used them within ear shot of grown ups. Soap in your mouth isn’t all that bad but it wasn’t that great either.

  17. I agree with the guy who pointed out that what everyone seems to be offended by is what she’s saying, not what she’s doing. How is having a potty mouth worse than killing people?

    It’s the same with nudity. I know families that let their ten-year-olds watch Braveheart, but covered their eyes when Wallace consummated his wedding. Really, which is worse?

    As far as the language goes, I’m 38. I learned all of those words and how to use most of them “properly” in kindergarten back in 1976. I don’t speak that way now except by myself when angry or when I’m with people I know speak that way. There are a large number of people I know, who have never heard me curse and probably never will. It’s a matter of knowing your audience and in the case of this movie, the audience is people who like to see conventions turned on their ear.

  18. @Thandrale

    That’s why I give this a pass – it’s obviously a super-bizarre relationship. Cage’s character is raising his daughter to kill bad guys and be able to keep herself alive while doing it – so some foul language is pretty much meaningless in comparison.

    @Roger

    I didn’t let (and still don’t) let my daughter watch either graphic realistic violence (and she doesn’t want to see it) nor very suggestive scenes (which I can tell make HER uncomfortable). If you pay attention to your child, you can gauge what they’re ready for (or not) by their reaction. If they react a certain way and you just “push through” by telling them it’s not big deal, you’re starting the desensitization process.

    Vic

  19. I know what you’re saying. That’s pretty much how I was raised. I remember wanting to see Conan The Barbarian so bad as a kid because everyone else was talking about it. My mom finally said I could, if I watched it with her. Talk about uncomfortable, but we both sat through it and talked about it afterward. Not enough parents are willing to do that and that’s why a lot of kids don’t understand the consequences of their actions.

  20. This is gonna be awesome! I just know it!

  21. I blame it on warcraft. Listening to little kids mouth on that game.. WOW.. j/k. I laughed at the trailer when she started to cuss, but its hard to decide if i like that or not. It’s not like I heard kids cuss on a (crap rap cd). But, I know its entertainment, it does seem to far fetched, but still enjoyable. Looks good though. Nic Cage looks like he finally found his kinda film.

  22. I really don’t see what the big deal is about the little girl swearing. Does any parent here really want to bet that their children don’t hear this kind of language anyway? Honestly, swearing doesn’t hurt anyone; it’s rude, but that’s it. Rudeness never killed anybody.

    I applaud parents such as Vic that take such active roles in their childrens’ lives.

  23. Had another thought (I’ll stop commenting after this, I swear). The point of accepting the trends of today about swearing and whatnot is not to deliberately expose children to foul language and other sensitive material, as some commentators have sarcastically suggested. The point is to keep your head screwed on straight when your eight year old walks in the kitchen and asks you what a “c#&t” is.

    Raising one’s fist to the sky and howling about how so-called “childhood innocence” is going down the drain is not an appropriate or productive response to any of this. I see a lot of people putting forward complaints about Hit-Girl’s language, and the way it represents the problem of the general degradation of language everywhere; what I do not see are any solutions to this problem. I realize that we aren’t going to solve it here, but I really would like to see people coming up with solutions instead of whining about how the world has changed.

    Because that’s just it; the world has changed, and if we don’t change along with it, we will stagnate. When your child asks you about a swearword, your response should not be to jump onto ScreenRant and proclaim your dissatisfaction with the fact that children are learning this word, and others like it. Your response should be damage control. Explain that this word (whatever it may be) is a foul and rude word not fit for conversation, and that you will not tolerate you child using it.

    Like I said: I’m seeing a lot of whining, and no solutions. Just complaining about a problem is not going to solve it.

  24. Too many prudish people here. Take your bloody kids to watch it, laugh your ass off and let them do likewise.

  25. Haha! So funny and clever! Have a child cuss and be vulgar! That is COM-MAH-DEE! Oh wait…that is boring, pathetic, tasteless and unoriginal. It would be more interesting if she had incredible manners, was always polite and never vulgar, yet was also this incredible assassin. THAT would show complexity and irony. Instead? We get a little girl calling people “cun*s”. Classy.

  26. Well, as I'm in high school myself, I want to chime in on this one. I plan on seeing this movie, it looks like great fun, but I agree that it's not really funny at all to have a 12 year old girl talking like this. I do, however, understand that this is an R-Rated movie, and if a parent is taking their children to see it, perhaps the language isn't the real problem here.

    Vic, you have no idea how much I respect your dedication with your daughter's upbringing. I can only hope to be half the father you are someday.

    Now, as far as my personal viewpoint- I can confidently say that I have known every one of those words and the proper and colloquial meanings since I was 6. That's school for a lot of people. I also have enough respect for adults and people I am not very close with NOT to use that kind of language. Even with those really close friends, I hold back because I have an understanding of how truly extreme some of those words are. Frankly, I find it disrespectful when ADULTS use some of that caliber language. I have to agree with chosen1forlife, actually, on his ideas for the character. I know it's hard to take my views too seriously, I'm only 18 and still in high school. Hopefully at least some of it was enlightening, seeing how someone that's still young and grew up in the 90's and early 21st century sees all of this.

  28. I understand both sides of everyones argument on whether or not this girl should be cursing in this movie. It looks amazing, the choreographing and idea behind it is mind blowing, but what scares me are the chances of children watching it. Sure, it's rated R and the staff at the theatre know who's 18+ and who's 10, but what happens to the parents who rent the DvD thinking “It's only Rated R because of the violence, Jack and Ben can watch this,” only to find out this 12yr old girl is screaming profanities?

    It's one thing to explain to your kids not to say something an adult says on TV, but when they see another kid do it on TV do you think they'll be as understanding? There are people out there who have children 10+ who they think are old enough to watch violent movies. In my opinion people should be warned beforehand that this little girl says these things. Print that crap out on the DvD box: “WARNING: Young girl swears like sailor!”
