Empire has snagged the latest UK teaser poster for the highly-anticipated insane-action-comic-book flick Kick-Ass. Those lucky sons of bitches will be getting the film on March 26th while us poor sods here in the states have to wait until April 16th.
It isn’t enough that they’re getting the film early, but now they have this sweet looking teaser poster to boot. The poster features Chloe Moretz as Hit-Girl, an 11-year-old assassin who murders the shit out of bad guys (as seen in the great red-band trailer). The tagline on this poster is: “Cute. Adorable. DEADLY.” It also works as an epitaph.

For those just tuning in, here’s the official 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).
