Lionsgate has this week released a brand new red band clip from their upcoming film Kick-Ass. You may have heard of this film. It seems to be making the rounds. The clip involves the character of Big Daddy, played by Nicolas Cage, and shows off the first part of one of the most brutal scenes in an incredibly violent movie. The reason this clip is red band is just that, because it is a very bloody minute of the film. It’s also an excellent example of the way this film accelerates into its action sequences. In one moment all is quiet — a minute later, almost everyone is dead. It’s just one more reason for you to be excited about the release of Kick-Ass, which will happen here in the US on April 16. For now, you might just want to enjoy this clip.
“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…
