Check These Out: The Greatest Vintage Kick-Ass Posters Yet
And I thought the marketing for this couldn't get any better. In honor of the premiere of Matthew Vaughn's Kick-Ass last night at the SXSW Film Festival, Lionsgate whipped up three new posters and then debuted them on MTV last week. They're designed like vintage US Army posters and I totally love them. I think these posters kick as much ass as the movie, which I've seen, and is awesome as you're all hoping it is. Following the premiere, reviews have started to pour in for Kick-Ass, so you can read a few from: Film School Rejects, The Playlist, HitFix, Hey U Guys and Twitch. And don't forget to check out the three new posters below, too!
Dave Lizewski one day decides to be a superhero, even though he has no powers, training or any reason.
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 earlier this year. Lionsgate is bringing Kick-Ass to theaters everywhere on April 16th this spring.
