A couple of new photos from Matthew Vaughn’s movie adaptation of Mark Millar’s “Kick-Ass” comic book. I know a lot of fanboys on the Interwebs are anticipating this thing, but let’s face it, it’s not going to do all that much business. The violence is going to keep parents from seeing this movie despite the heavy teen cast, and talks of a “Kick-Ass 2″ seems a tad premature.

Dave Lizewski is 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 he makes the simple decision to become a super-hero even though he has no powers or training.
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.
