Lionsgate Launches Official 'Kick-Ass' Movie Site

Kick-AssEarlier today we got our first peek at a new set of "Kick-Ass" movie posters featuring the film's costumed vigilantes, and now Lionsgate has launched the official website for the big-screen adaptation of John Romita Jr. and Mark Millar's ultraviolent comic book series.

Debuting today at iamkick-ass.com, the site doesn't offer much at the moment aside from a look at the same four images from the new posters and a countdown to the "Kick-Ass" trailer debut—which will apparently hit MySpace.com on November 15 at 1 AM EST.

However, the site does feature a cool introductory animation that sweeps through the city on its way up to the quartet of costumed characters perched on a ledge.

"Kick-Ass" is scheduled to hit theaters on April 16, featuring Aaron Johnson as superhero-wannabe Dave Lizewski, Christopher Mintz-Plasse as copycat "hero" The Red Mist, Nicolas Cage and Chloe Moretz as the father-daughter vigilante team of Big Daddy and Hit Girl, and Clark Duke as Lizewski's best friend, Marty.

Previously, Cage gave MTV News his take on the design of Big Daddy's "Batman Begins"-style costume, while the "Kick-Ass" footage that premiered during this year's Comic-Con in San Diego offered the first look at Moretz as Hit Girl. Mintz-Plasse also explained how David Bowie factored into his costume, and the research (or lack thereof) he and Duke had to do for the project.

Let us know what you think of the new site in the comment section or on Twitter!
