If only movie studios would let us online reporters do what you’re about to watch.
Every time I get to do a set visit, I’m frustrated by the way we report what we see. We’re not allowed to use cameras. We always do junket style interviews. No matter how we write about the adventure, it’s still something you have to read. But when the folks at Empire landed a set visit on director Matthew Vaughn’s Kick-Ass, they weren’t there to just write about the experience…they were allowed to use a video camera and they’ve cut together a great three and a half minute behind-the-scenes mini-documentary. You get to see Vaughn, Aaron Johnson, Mark Strong, Chloe Moretz and Christopher Mintz-Plasse discuss making the movie and see what it was really like on set. The only complaint about the doc is…you’ll wish it was longer. If you’ve been looking forward to Kick-Ass, you want to see this:
Kick-Ass is out in the UK on March 26, and on April 16 in the US.
