For a number of months I’ve been hearing the incredible buzz on Kick-Ass. I know a few people that have seen Matthew Vaughn’s movie and each person has said it’s a masterpiece. And these aren’t casual fans. The people raving are hard core movie nerds and aren’t the type to get on a bandwagon. What I’m trying to say is…the movie must be amazing. I’m finally invited to a screening tomorrow and I cannot tell you how excited I am.
Anyway, the reason for the post is Lionsgate has released the official outdoor art for Kick-Ass and you can check out the posters after the jump. Also, pre-oders have begun on the 12″ Kick-Ass figure and the 12″ Hit-Girl figure. Hit the jump for images and how you can get them:

The 12″ Kick-Ass figure and Hit-Girl. Kick-Ass will come with billy clubs while Hit-Girl will come with swords and a butterfly knife. The final versions of these figures are subject to change from what is shown here. Mezco will also be doing 7″ versions of both of these figures.

Here’s the outdoor art. Expect a lot more on Kick-Ass soon. I cannot imagine how many Hit Girl’s will be at Comic-Con this summer.
New Official Synopsis:
“How come nobody’s ever tried to be a superhero?” When Dave Lizewski – ordinary New York teenager and rabid comic-book geek dons a green-and-yellow internet-bought wetsuit to become the no-nonsense vigilante, Kick-Ass, he soon finds an answer to his own question: because it hurts. But, overcoming all the odds, the eager yet inexperienced Dave quickly becomes a phenomenon, capturing the imagination of the public. However, he’s not the only superhero out there – the fearless and highly-trained father-daughter crime-fighting duo, Big Daddy and Hit-Girl have been slowly but surely taking down the criminal empire of local Mafioso, Frank D’Amico. And, as Kick-Ass gets drawn into their no-holds-barred world of bullets and bloodletting with Frank’s son, Chris, now reborn as Kick-Ass’s arch-nemesis, Red Mist – the stage is set for a final showdown between the forces of good and evil – in which the DIY hero will have to live up to his name. Or die trying…
Directed by Matthew Vaughn, from a screenplay by Jane Goldman & Matthew Vaughn, and based on the comic written by Mark Millar and John S. Romita Jr. Lionsgate and MARV present a MARV Films / Plan B production.
