Courtesy of IMPAwards, the world’s best movie poster site ever, we have three new posters for Matthew Vaughn’s Kick-Ass, Shawn Levy’s Date Night, and Martin Campbell’s Edge of Darkness. The Kick-Ass poster feature Chloe Moretz as “Hit-Girl” and completes the set of the previously released posters. The Date Night poster is so plain that they just took an image we’ve already seen, slapped a gray background and the movie’s titled on it, and went about their business. Still, people love Steve Carell and Tina Fey so what more do you really need? And finally, the poster for Edge of Darkness tells us that few escape justice, none escape vengeance, and Mel Gibson can’t escape motion blur. [Update -- This poster was not a finalized version of the alternate poster and we have removed it at the request of the studio]

Here’s the synopsis for Kick-Ass, which hits theaters on April 16, 2010.
“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).
And here’s the synopsis for Date Night, which hits theaters on April 9, 2010.
Dragged down by the daily grind, suburbanites Phil (Steve Carell) and Claire (Tina Fey) try to put the spark back in their marriage by visiting a trendy Manhattan bistro. They get more than they bargained for when a case of mistaken identity hurtles them into an incredible adventure involving corrupt cops, a mob boss and a crazed cab driver.
