VOTD: Kick-Ass Red Band Trailer Is Really Dirty

3 Mar 2010

And most of it comes from the cherry chapstick lips of a 12-year old girl.

Based on the popular comic by Mark Millar (creator of Wanted), the film is getting some serious buzz. Lots of comparisons to Tarantino for its stylized off-the-wall violence and eccentric dialogue. The synopsis reads as such:

A twisted, funny, high-octane adventure, director Matthew Vaughn brings ‘Kick-Ass’ to the big screen.

‘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, 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 fledgling superhero, 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.

Watch a preview of this naughty-worded gorefest below:

    I read the comics (online, durr) and they aren’t anything special but this adaptation looks like it’s going to turn out great. Hopefully, it shows us that some comic-to-film adaptations work better as movies. *crosses fingers*
