With Buried (starring Ryan Reynolds) debuting at the Sundance Film Festival and Kick-Ass bowing in April, there’s not a moment to lose in marketing.  I mean that in all seriousness because I think Buried could be fantastic and I’ve heard that Kick-Ass definitely is.  While the poster for Buried is a little plain (especially when you compare it to the two which didn’t make the cut), the new Kick-Ass poster is apparently the second part of a series, this time focusing on the character Red Mist (played by Christopher Mintz-Plasse).  Hopefully character posters for Hit Girl (Chloe Moretz) and Big Daddy (Nicolas Cage) won’t be too far behind.

Check out both posters after the jump along with a synopsis for each.

For those just tuning in, here’s a brief synopsis for Buried:

Paul (Reynolds) is a U.S. contractor working in Iraq. After an attack by a group of Iraqis he wakes to find he is buried alive inside a coffin. With only a lighter and a cell phone it’s a race against time to escape this claustrophobic death trap.

For those just tuning in, here’s a brief synopsis for Kick-Ass:

“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.

His life is forever changed as he inspires a subculture of copy cats, is hunted by assorted violent and unpleasant characters, and meets up with a pair of crazed vigilantes, including an 11-year-old sword-wielding dynamo, Hit Girl (Moretz) and her father, Big Daddy (Cage).
