Another sneak peek to "Kick-Ass" has been provided by Lionsgate Films to promote the film which will be launched in the U.S. on April 16. An exclusive courtesy of MSN, the fresh age-restricted clip sees Mark Strong's Frank D'Amico and other two guys who watch Nicolas Cage's Big Daddy embarking on a solo action to fight a number of badass.
Adapted from a comic book series by Mark Millar and John Romita Jr., "Kick-Ass" promises to offer a twisted, funny, high-octane adventure from director Matthew Vaughn. It follows the story of average teenager Dave Lizewski who decides to take his comic-book obsession as inspiration to become a real-life superhero.
Assembling green-colored suit and mask to wear, he opts to be called Kick-Ass and gets to work fighting crime. As a superhero wannabe, Kick-Ass actually has no superpower. However, 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.
The titular character is played by Aaron Johnson, while 11-year-old sword-wielding dynamo Hit Girl is portrayed by Chloe Moretz. Christopher Mintz-Plasse is additionally cast as Red Mist. Produced by Vaughn and Brad Pitt among others, the action fantasy movie has been premiered in London, U.K. on March 22.
