A new international Kick-Ass trailer has been released and like all the previous trailers, the footage has me beyond excited to finally see this movie. Also, it seems like everyone I know has already seen it and people are RAVING about director Matthew Vaughn’s superhero movie. Even people I didn’t expect to be impressed with it are telling me the film was awesome. If regular folks are reacting this way, this movie is going to be HUGE.
Hit the jump and watch the new trailer. Tell me you’re not excited.
Here’s the official synopsis:
Director Matthew Vaughn (LAYER CAKE, STARDUST) brings the twisted, funny, high-octane adventure KICK-ASS to the big screen.
KICK-ASS tells the story of average teenager Dave Lizewski (Aaron Johnson), a comic-book fanboy who decides to take his obsession as inspiration to become a real-life superhero. As any good superhero would, he chooses a new name — Kick-Ass — assembles a suit and mask to wear, and gets to work fighting crime. There’s only one problem standing in his way: Kick-Ass has absolutely no superpowers whatsoever.
His life is forever changed as he inspires a subculture of copy cats, meets up with a pair of crazed vigilantes — including an 11-year-old sword-wielding dynamo, Hit Girl (Chloë Moretz) and her father, Big Daddy (Nicolas Cage) — and forges a friendship with another fledgling crimefighter, Red Mist (Christopher Mintz-Plasse). But thanks to the scheming of a local mob boss Frank D’Amico (Mark Strong), that new alliance will be put to the test.
