After enjoying plenty of bootleg footage for Kick-Ass from this year's Comic Con, Lionsgate has finally gotten around to releasing the film's first official trailer.
Kick-Ass Teaser Trailer
Kick-Ass tells the story of average teenager Dave Lizewski (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).
The good people at TrailerAddict have posted an early look at the teaser trailer for Kick-Ass, which should arrive shortly in HD. The film looks like a ton of fun, and I'm glad to finally see Big Daddy (Nicolas Cage) get into the action. As icing on the cake, seeing Red Mist (Christopher Mintz-Plasse) take a shot at something or someone had me howling in laughter. Check out the trailer below:
