When we first got our hands on the red band trailer for Kick-Ass in late December, we had no idea what we were in for. The brutal genius of Mark Millar has been clearly highlighted in other projects, such as Wanted, but this movie presented a different angle: real kids, dressing up as real superheros, fighting crime in the very real, very bloody world. If done wrong, this would be the year’s most embarrassing comic book adaptation.
Then the reports and trailers came in. Kick-Ass has been done right. Director Matthew Vaughn has delivered a brutal, fun and energetic flick that should light the geek world on fire. And today, the fire continues to swell as we get a second trailer — this one of the green band variety — courtesy of Lionsgate and Yahoo Movies. Again, there is energy. Again, there is violence. Again, I’m left with a yearning for the opening night of SXSW 2010 to come sooner.
The new trailer is below for your inspection. Kick-Ass stars Aaron Johnson, Chloe Moretz, Christopher Mintz-Plasse, Mark Strong and Nicolas Cage. It is in theaters April 16, 2010.
