Kick Ass 2
If you're a young girl raised your entire life to fight crime and use guns and switchblades, is it going to be harder or easier to enter high school? That's the question for Chloe Grace Moretz's Hit Girl in Kick-Ass 2, where she not only continues to fight crime, but may be joining the cheerleading squad.

'Kick-Ass 2': First Look At Chloe Moretz As Hit-Girl

Kick Ass (TOP)
A few years ago, Chloe Moretz went from sweet little sister (of a very depressing Joseph Gordon-Levitt) to a foul-mouthed little ninja and total bad-ass. She was barely a teenager when she starred as Hit Girl in Kick-Ass, and this year, she's returning to the role looking a little more mature.

The romantic tragedy has been adapted unto the screen a great number of times – but that didn't stop director Joe Wright from giving the literary work another rendition, and here he casts Keira Knightley as his female lead for the third time (they also made Pride &...

Kick-Ass: Aaron Johnson as Kick-Ass
The journey to Kick-Ass 2 has been a long and arduous one.  First, the film was rumored to be in development, was then officially greenlit, and then quickly scurried into non-development as everyone involved appeared to be simply too busy to film the sequel to the 2010 cult hit.  Now, however, it seems that Universal is swooping in like a caped crusader to rescue the film from the...

Blake Lively and Benicio Del Toro in Savages
Oliver Stone's Savages feels like a comeback. Maybe it is, in that it's a comeback into mainstream cinema. His last film was a sequel to Wall Street, and that film has already been lost to time. This is a big crime-filled ensemble drama/action movie, and it looks like a winner (mostly). The film is due out July 6, and features Benicio Del...

Kick-Ass: Aaron Johnson as Kick-Ass
As I said right after seeing this film at ShoWest, this film does what it says it will, it kick's ass. There are some things that I could pick at if I really wanted to but overall it's a darkly comedic film about fake superheros fighting crime and it's some of the most fun I've had in theaters all year. The tone, the dialogue and the comedic-violence are brilliantly well executed...I was sold...
