Kick-Ass Teaser Trailer Online
The non-superhero film of next year

11 November 2009  |  Written by Helen O'Hara  |  Source: My Space

As if a Clash of the Titans teaser wasn't enough today, here's a taste of Kick-Ass as well, the comic-book movie that promises to be one of the coolest films of next year.After all, who said superheroes actually need to be super? Or, for that matter, heroes?

 Our hero (we use the term loosely) is Aaron Johnson's Dave Lizewski, who decides to don a mask and become superhero Kick-Ass. Once he's taken that step he meets fellow costumed avengers from Chloe Moretz's 11 year-old Mindy (aka Hit Girl) and her doting father Big Daddy (Nicolas Cage) as well as playboy super nerd hero Red Mist (Christopher Mintz-Plasse).

Kick-Ass debuts in the US on April 16, 2010, and will hopefully come out in the UK around the same time.

The opening shot mocks two big francises for the price of 1, Spiderman voice over with the Dark Knight base jumping sequence. Can't wait for the Redband trailer where we can taste the real swearyness Empire has promised...Oh and Maybe watch the film when It comes out as well :p More

RE:
This film's totally snuk up on me. Apart from the recent images on Empire I knew nothing about it. Really excited to see how it turns out. I like the concept, it's a conversation that's been had by groups of friends since the invention of the superhero. I remember having the same conversation many many times at uni. Not sure I'll rush to the cinema to see it but it'll definately get watched at some point. More

:-D This I have to watch!
Looks far more entertaining than Clash of the Titans (just judging by the trailers obviously). Also has that Freaks and Geeks feel to it, which is always good :-D More

Superman music change
Rather sad they went with 2001, at least in the teaser, the Superman theme's opening was perfect fodder. Also I'd be more impressed had this been redband, so I could show all my mates "This is the film you'll be screaming about next year" More
