The first widely released official trailer for "Kick-Ass" wasn’t meant to come out until this Friday, at least according to the official site, but it’s out now!
"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.
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!
The film is based on the ultraviolent comic by Mark Millar and follows Dave Lizewski (Aaron Johnson), a high school dweeb who attempts to reinvent himself as a real-world costumed superhero named Kick-Ass who seems doomed to failure because he's not athletic or coordinated until he runs into real bad guys with real weapons.
"Kick-Ass" opens April 16, 2010.
More news to come! Catch ya' later!
