McLovin's Red Mist Gets His Own Kick-Ass Character Poster
A few weeks ago, Lionsgate unveiled the first awesome trailer and first badass poster for Matthew Vaughn's Kick-Ass comic book movie. AICN has just debuted another new character poster for Red Mist, the other wanna-be superhero that Christopher Mintz-Plasse plays in the movie. He teams up with Kick-Ass, played by Aaron Johnson, and well, they kick some gangster ass. I don't know much more about the plot than that, but I don't want to know more. And so far I've got to say, the marketing on this is pretty awesome. I've loved every poster they've put out, the trailer was great, and I've got a feeling there's plenty more to come. Enjoy!
Kick-Ass is both written and directed by British filmmaker Matthew Vaughn, of Layer Cake and Stardust previously. The screenplay was co-written by Vaughn and his writing partner Jane Goldman, of Stardust as well. The story is an adaptation of Mark Millar's comic of the same name that is currently in the middle of its first series. Kick-Ass was funded entirely by Matthew Vaughn and his own private investors and sold once finished to Lionsgate earlier this year. They've currently set an April 16th, 2010 release date for the film, although I hope they change that, because that's a terrible opening day. Who's already planning to see this?
