The four posters feature images of the film’s costumed vigilantes: The Red Mist (played by Christopher Mintz-Plasse), Kick-Ass (Aaron Johnson), Hit Girl (Chloe Moretz) and Big Daddy (Nicolas Cage). Each character is poised on a rooftop, facing away from the camera, and the four posters form a skyline view when aligned.
Previously, we heard from Mintz-Plasse and co-star Clark Duke about the research (or lack thereof) they had to do for their roles in the much-anticipated film. Now that the project has received distribution from Lionsgate and has a release date set (April 16, 2010), fans who have been eagerly awaiting the film can finally look forward to seeing it—and its wild cast of characters—in theaters.
For those who haven’t been following along at home, “Kick-Ass” tells the story of high-school geek Dave Lizewski, who decides to take his superhero worship to the next level and become a real-life costumed vigilante. After a shaky start (he’s almost beaten to death by a gang of thugs), Lizewski finds Internet fame and a superhero name (“Kick-Ass”)—but a whole new level of troubles in the form of copycat vigilantes like the The Red Mist and a father-daughter team of brutal vigilantes who take a different approach to cleaning up the streets.
