One More Amazing Poster for Matthew Vaughn's Kick-Ass!
Lionsgate has debuted one more amazing poster for Matthew Vaughn's Kick-Ass (via HitFix) featuring the entire line-up of faux heroes, not just one at a time. I know I shouldn't go this crazy, but I absolutely love this poster. In fact, I'm calling it my favorite poster of 2010 so far. I love the way it looks, I love how simple yet eye-catching it is, I love the paint splatter effect (instead of blood). It's a brilliantly designed poster that feels perfectly representative of the movie. It's rare we see posters this good. I don't know if it'll change anyone's mind about Kick-Ass, but I hope it at least gets everyone out to see it in April. Check it out below!
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.
