'Kick-Ass' To Open SXSW Film Festival

Kick-AssBummed you're not one of the lucky few to have seen "Kick-Ass" already? Well, so am I. However, it looks like we'll have yet another chance to catch the film ahead of its April 16 release.

"Kick-Ass" will open this year's South by Southwest Film Conference and Festival, which runs March 12-20 in Austin, Texas. The film will premiere during the festival's 2010 opening night festivities.

“Kick-Ass is a truly fun ride, with non-stop action, clever humor, and even heart, which is exactly what our audience has come to love and expect from SXSW every year,” said Film Conference and Festival Producer Janet Pierson. “We feel fortunate to have found such a tailor-made good time to kick off our 2010 event!”

With mere months left until Matthew Vaughn's adaptation of Mark Millar and John Romita Jr.'s comic book series hits theaters, updates have been flying around the 'Net. Fans have received a new "Kick-Ass" trailer, and a series of "Kick-Ass" movie posters, among other elements.
