The full theatrical trailer for Matthew Vaughn’s Kick-Ass has punched and kicked its way online. Kick-Ass, based on the ongoing comic book series by Mark Millar and John Romita Jr., centres on an outcast teenager who decides to become a costumed vigilante. He quickly discovers he isn’t the only mask avenger in town.
I like this trailer a lot more than that obnoxious Red Band trailer for the character Hit-Girl that was released a few weeks back. To be fair though it did illustrate that the film would be as violent and brutal as the comic book. The movie was shot in Toronto, so it’s nice to see that some fleeting glimpses of Hogtown have made it into the trailer.
Kick-Ass stars Nicholas Cage, Mark Strong, Christopher Mintz-Plasse and Aaron Johnson and is due in theatres April 16th, 2010.
