Kick Ass – Red Band Trailer/Clips

Make sure you lock up your kids before you stick on this trailer folks as it’s adults only. Of course for anyone who’s read a single issue of the comic on which the film is based this should come as no real surprise.

From what clips I’ve seen and looking at the casting so far this is shaping up to be a pretty close adaptation of the comic (note to self still have one more issue to read). Given how Hit Girl is portrayed in the comic I’m guessing the film makers are steeling themselves for the inevitable backlash of criticism from certain quarters to stay faithful to her character’s roots in the film.

The film hits our screens April 2nd 2010.

Kick-Ass tells the story of average teenager Dave Lizewski (Aaron Johnson), a comic-book fanboy who decides to take his obsession as inspiration to become a real-life superhero. As any good superhero would, he chooses a new name — Kick-Ass — assembles a suit and mask to wear, and gets to work fighting crime. There’s only one problem standing in his way: Kick-Ass has absolutely no superpowers.

His life is forever changed as he inspires a subculture of copy cats, is hunted by assorted violent and unpleasant characters, and meets up with a pair of crazed vigilantes, including an 11-year-old sword-wielding dynamo, Hit Girl (Chloe Moretz) and her father, Big Daddy (Nicolas Cage) – and forges a friendship with another fledging super hero, Red Mist (Christopher Mintz-Plasse). But thanks to the scheming of a local mob boss Frank D’Amico (Mark Strong), that new alliance will be put to the test.
