Another vintage poster has been released for Matthew Vaughn’s Kick-Ass. The first one featured the title character as played by Aaron Johnson, and the latest features Chloe Moretz as the small but deadly, Hit Girl. This poster has to be my favorite because just like the previous one, it takes a note from the war time posters of the 1940′s, and this one’s meant to inspire the ladies.
All three of the posters released including Kick-Ass, Red Mist, and Hit Girl will only be available during a signing after the SXSW panel for the film that will feature stars Johnson, Moretz, and Christopher Mintz-Plasse along with comic creators Mark Millar and John Romita Jr. The first poster in this series was an homage to Uncle Sam, and now this one is a throwback to the famous Rosie the Riveter image that was so prominent during WWII.
The caption on Hit Girl’s poster says, “We Can Kick-Ass!” at the top, which is is a take on the original “We Can Do It” slogan. At the bottom there’s also a statement that says it’s from the “Women’s Ass-Kicking Committee.” You’ve got to love the play on words they’ve developed for this film’s marketing campaign. It’s come a long way from being the R-rated comic flick nobody wanted to the media juggernaut it is today!
