The teaser trailer for Matthew Vaughn’s Kick-Ass is now 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. Much of the footage from the teaser was previously seen in the leaked Comic-Con presentation, though this is the first time we’re seeing it in such high quality.
Shot in Toronto last year, the film is getting very positive buzz. The Kick-Ass comics are extremely violent, by all accounts Vaughn’s film is just as brutal. Kick-Ass punches, kicks and bludgeons its way into theatres on April 16th, 2010.
