Five new and mildly kick ass images from Matthew Vaughn’s “Kick Ass”, which is due out next week. Yup, next week. Time flies when you’re dressing up and fighting crime, I guess.
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.
