Teaser Trailer for Matthew Vaughn’s ‘Kick-Ass’

ON

It appears another soon-to-be Internet sensation is already WAY over my head as the teaser trailer for Matthew Vaughn’s Kick-Ass arrives a little earlier than expected.

The film is based on the ultraviolent comic by Mark Millar and follows Dave Lizewski (Aaron Johnson), a high school dweeb who attempts to reinvent himself as a real-world costumed superhero named Kick-Ass who seems doomed to failure because he’s not athletic or coordinated until he runs into real bad guys with real weapons.

Matthew Vaughn of Layer Cake and Stardust fame directed the picture, which Lionsgate will release on April 16, 2010.

Check out the trailer below and eight images from the film, including five new posters, can be found right here.
