A fourth and probably final trailer for Matthew Vaughn’s Kick-Ass has been released online. Unlike some others we’ve seen this one can be viewed by all. We don’t see any 12 year old girls shooting people in the forehead or chopping off grown men’s legs, but it’s still cool nonetheless.
Aaron Johnston plays Dave Lizewski, a lonely teen who decides to become a real-life superhero after being inspired by the heroes of comic-books. He soon encounters a mysterious vigilante called Big-Daddy (Nicolas Cage), and his daughter Hit Girl (Chloë Moretz), who are working to bring down the drug baron, Frank D’Amico.
Kick-Ass will be released on April 16th in the US and March 26th in the UK. The film was recently screened at the South by Southwest Film Festival and the reviews have been overwhelmingly positive. Lionsgate may have a hit on their hands, and a new franchise to boot.
