"Kick-Ass" has brightened up the night in London, England on Monday, March 22 by holding a glamorous premiere. Taking place at the Empire Leicester Square, not only giant posters of the film were put in front of the building but also a red car which looks like the one ridden by Red Mist in the movie was parked there.
Playing superhero characters in the film, Aaron Johnson, Chloe Moretz as well as Christopher Mintz-Plasse all appeared to support the special screening. While Nicolas Cage was not pictured on the red carpet, the depicter of antagonist Frank D'Amico, Mark Strong, was not absent from the event.
However, it was not those actors who stole the spotlight. Instead, it was Brad Pitt. The Angelina Jolie's living partner, who produces the movie alongside director Matthew Vaughn and many others, could not ignore fans who requested for autographs as soon as he arrived at the venue. He later posed for cameras with supermodel Claudia Schiffer and her husband Vaughn.
Adapted from a comic book series by Mark Millar and John Romita Jr., "Kick-Ass" centers its story on average teenager Dave Lizewski who decides to take his comic-book obsession as inspiration to become a real-life superhero and opts to be called Kick-Ass. Though he has no superpower, he manages to inspire a subculture of copy cats and meet up with a pair of crazed vigilantes. This R-rated action movie is plotted to hit U.S. theaters on April 16.
