Another theatrical poster has been released for the upcoming comic book adaptation, Kick-Ass. The film is directed by Matthew Vaughn and based on comic creator Mark Millar‘s work. Similar to the previous one sheets that have been released, the latest has an overly airbrushed quality to it. Not to the point that it’s distracting, because it actually works with the overall theme of the movie, which is comic book heroes come to life. See for yourself…
Kick-Ass is based on the Mark Millar comic that begs the question, what would happen if superheroes really did exist? The film centers on a group of crime fighting vigilantes who don’t have any super powers, but overcompensate with weapons and attitude. It’s a prime example of fantasy meeting reality, with a bit of comedy thrown in.
The title character is played by British actor Aaron Johnson who is a relative unknown in the States, but that will soon change after Kick-Ass debuts. Chloe Moretz co-stars as Hit Girl perhaps the most popular character in the crew, and her father Big Daddy is played by Oscar winner Nicolas Cage. There’s also Christopher Mintz-Plasse aka McLovin’ who stars as Red Mist, the son of Mark Strong’s villainous character.
The poster combines all the main characters who have previously been shown in individual promos. Take a look…
Kick-Ass hits theaters on April 16, 2010.
