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?

Perspective is off a a bit on RedLovin, but yeh, still pretty badass. I like the reinforcing tagline.

April is the new May these last couple of years...it's the sink or swim month, testing the waters for the smaller franchises to see if they can swim with the bigger fish.

Still not all that pleased with Red Mist's costume. This poster is good, but it also lacks that actual Kick-Ass title, which will confuse people that have no idea what this movie is.

Would never have thought McLovin could be anything but, but he was great in Role Models and even though the movie sucked, he was good in Year One. I don't think he can shun the "loser, squeaky-voice kid" character, but he showed signs in Role Models that he can act drama and fight via the role playing game in said movie. Is that what got him cast for this movie? I would think so.

#6 Trust me there was a lot of thought put into this poster, it wasn't "off-perspective", it's exactly how they wanted it. It's just not your style.

#15 No, it really is off perspective tho. When they pieced together the car shot and the Red Mist shot, the feet/legs don't have the correct perspective. It may be exactly how they wanted it to be, and it in fact may not be what #6's style is... But it is still off perspective. Rookie mistake, happens to all artists.

agree with #11 - total crap. the most immature & assinine hype I have seen for a movie so far. The entire premise sounds like a bunch of 4th graders in the playground at recess; "I can kick your ass...no ya cant, I can kick YOUR ass...no ya cant..." give me a f*ckin break...
