The Kick-Ass Teaser Trailer has premiered. Kick-Ass is directed by Matthew Vaughn and stars Aaron Johnson, Nicholas Cage, Chloe Moretz, Mark Strong, Christopher Mintz-Plasse, and Yancy Butler. Kick-Ass‘ plot synopsis: “a lonely teenage boy, Dave Lizewski / Kick-Ass (Aaron Johnson), decides to become a real-life superhero after being inspired by the heroes of comic-books. He soon encounters a mysterious vigilante Damon Macready / Big Daddy (Nicolas Cage), and his daughter Mindy Macready / Hit Girl (Chloë Moretz), who are working to bring down the drug baron, Frank D’Amico (Mark Strong)”. I heard the comic-con footage for Kick-Ass is far more brutal and Rated R than what is being shown in this teaser trailer. I am glad I have the comic to tide me over until this film drops in theaters. I’ve had my digital copy of the Kick-Ass comic book for some time now but have not sat down to read it. That is going to change. Then again, I said the same thing about Black Hole and Origin. Watch the Kick-Ass teaser trailer below and leave your thoughts on it. Kick-Ass will be released on April 16, 2010.
