Honestly, I have no idea where this trailer was designed to be shown. Must be entirely on the Internet, right? It’s violent and foul as all get-out, which means you sick, sick bastards should love every second of it. All I know is that someone managed to get it on YouTube without the censors knowing, and it hasn’t been flagged yet. Clever boys. Thanks to reader Mark for the tip.
Based on the comic book by Mark Millar and John Romita Jr., “Kick Ass” follows Dave Lizewski (Aaron Johnson), an unnoticed high school student and comic book fan with a few friends and who lives alone with his father. His life is not very difficult and his personal trials not that overwhelming. However, one day Dave makes the simple decision to become a super-hero even though he has no powers or training, and after fashioning himself a homemade costume, he goes out to fight crime. He later comes into contact with Hit-Girl (Chloe Moretz) a teenage girl who is actually highly trained to fight crime (not to mention sporting the foulest mouth), and her father, ex-cop Big Daddy (Nicolas Cage). Together, they take on a mobster played by Mark Strong.
Starring Nicolas Cage, Christopher Mintz-Plasse, Mark Strong, Aaron Johnson, Lyndsy Fonseca, Xander Berkeley, Clark Duke, Chloe Moretz, Michael Rispoli, Omari Hardwick, Adrian Martinez, Tim Plester, Deborah Twiss, and directed by Matthew Vaughn.
