The box office preview is coming along later today, I promise, but in the meantime it seems it’s never a bad time for a new “Kick-Ass” trailer. Yesterday came the announcement that this highly buzzed about non-supernatural/non-sci-fi superhero action black comedy from the highly underrated director Matthew Vaughn (“Layer Cake,” “Stardust“) will be opening the big SXSW Film festival in Austin this March. Now, via the Heat Vision blog, here’s a very decent general audience trailer — the movie itself is certain to be a “hard R” — which describes the story in a bit more detail.
And, just for a bonus, here’s an earlier Red Band clip-trailer via Trailer Addict that I failed to run a while back, It adds a bit to what we saw previously of Chloe Moretz and Nicolas Cage as the not at all ordinary alter egos of Hit-Girl and Big Daddy. It kind of makes you all gooey inside.
I think it’s safe to say that, between this and his stellar reviews for “Bad Lieutenant: Port of Call New Orleans,” Cage certainly appears to have his regained his performing mojo. From what I’ve been reading, I’m also looking forward to more people agreeing with me that Vaughn, once known only as Guy Ritchie’s producer, is the better movie storyteller.
