A new red band trailer has been released for Matthew Vaughn’s Kick-Ass. Similar to the previous restricted trailer there’s a lot more violence and bad language present than what’s shown in the green band versions. Once again, this trailer is not safe for work, so make sure you’re not being monitored before clicking the play button. If everything’s set, sit back, relax and enjoy the new trailer for Kick-Ass…
The red band trailer highlights the film’s tagline “They can’t see through walls. They can’t fly. But they can kick your ass.” 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.
What do you think of the latest red band trailer for Kick-Ass? Does it show too much footage? Is it too over the top for your taste?
