Big Daddy (played by Nicolas Cage) gets a chance to shine in this new clip from Kick-Ass. By “chance to shine”, I mean he kills lot of people in a gruesome manner that’s interesting for how matter-of-fact it is. Unlike the previous red band clip featuring Hit Girl (Chloe Moretz) calling people “cunts” and making stylish kills, Big Daddy takes out the trash with all the enthusiasm of literally taking out trash to the curb.
But it’s not boring. It’s comical and I encourage you to check it out after the jump along with the official synopsis. Kick-Ass hits theaters on April 16th.

Here’s the official synopsis for Kick-Ass:
“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.
