More Eye Candy - Another Three New Kick-Ass Photos
I'm going to preface this by mentioning that the fifth issue of Mark Millar's actual Kick-Ass comic hit shelves a few weeks ago, and it is as "kick ass" as the title itself. I love this comic and I can't get enough of it. It took forever for the fifth issue to come out, but it was worth it. Go buy it! And once you've read it, come back here and check out three new photos via HitFix from Matthew Vaughn's live-action version. To be honest, it's really hard to appreciate these unless you really know the comic itself. That said, take a look if you must, but just know that this will actually kick ass in the end, despite what you may think now.
In addition to seeing Aaron Johnson as the title character Dave Lizewski, there is a photo of Nicolas Cage and Chloe Moretz as Big Daddy and Hit Girl, respectively, out of their costumes. Stay tuned for more.
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 on his own and doesn't yet have a distributor. However, we can expect Kick-Ass to eventually show up in theaters sometime in 2009.

Nicholas Cage with a coffee cup, a cardigan, surrounded by weapons and a gatling gun center frame = more awesome than anything that's happened in this comic's entire run.

I heard the comic book wasn't that good. Haven't read it though, probably won't anyway.
Darunia on Jan 14, 2009
#9, the problem is, you're probably hearing that from someone who only read the comic because of hearing about the movie, so they're probably not a comic fan in the first place.

Alex, I'm just having fun with you. I always tend to laugh at the promotional stills studios put out. They tell you nothing except "We paid for costumes and sets!" I guess I'm waiting for the trailer.
Tom Brazelton on Jan 14, 2009
Dave Lizewski is coming to the big screen, the comic book kicks ass anyway.
Fisherr on Jan 14, 2009
I like the costume.
Crapola on Jan 14, 2009
comic owns, last one was sick. cant wait, I agree with Alex. Read it before you judge :]
Thomas on Jan 14, 2009
wait. Alex read something? 😛

Alas, I want to see this so bad, but with the addition of Cage, I cannot bring my self to view the horror of the WORST ACTOR ON THE PLANET! This is just sad.
Tim "Cloverfield" on Jan 14, 2009
Alright Nicky Cage.
"Red" "Button" "s" on Jan 14, 2009
WOAT ( worst of all time) Nick "my brilliant Uncle Fran has been my ticket to almost single-handedly ruining the Cinema" Cage does not belong here. Thanks for destroying another film with your presence. Quit it Red!
D-9 on Jan 14, 2009
Never. Your hate for him is hilarious to me as my love of him is to you.
"Red" - "Button" - "s" on Jan 14, 2009
Cage is too small to be Big Daddy
Matt on Jan 14, 2009
Red is out of control.....again. Now..... if he ranks Stiller and Rogen as his loves as well....then we need to call the "FLick Fuzz" on the poor mis-guided Lad. Or we could loop some clips of really great, brilliant actors and make him see the light!!!! Or get Uncle Copola to send out an apology letter to us film fans. I am just tryin to help little Red.
Tim "Cloverfield" on Jan 15, 2009
LOL. I am sure there are actors that you adore and i have no taste for. That is just what it is. Taste. MMMmmmmmm McQueen Burgers.
"Red" - "Button" - "s" on Jan 15, 2009
Can you tell us anything about Nic Cage's character? He's the kid's dad, but what do we have to look forward to for him, being in the film? Telling me to read the comics just doesn't seem like enough of an endorsement, though I will probably check them out - I can't sell this to girl a) or girl b) who I like taking to movies by saying " You gotta read the comic book!" "How 'bout: It's a real world take on a young kid w/ super powers, who indulges his violent fantasies, and bloodies the hell out of anyone who tries to keep him down." Now we're talkin' ... so ... what of Nic Cage's character, aside from a low-lit, bugs-eye-view shot of him balding?
Jimbo Slims on Jan 15, 2009
I'm very excited for this movie because the comics rule, but what sucks is by reading all of this first showing coverage, things in the comics are now spoiled. I already know red mist's identity and who big daddy is before Millar has even released this information in the comic series. Lame
Garrett DeLozier on Jan 16, 2009
I have an old editing machine I show and give hands on to students. I will work on this for Red and maybe we can pull him out of his delusions. I have a list of actors, let's compare notes and save Red's cinema Life!
D-9 on Jan 16, 2009
In addition to looking up their noses, she kind of has a "who farted" look on her face. I still think that these movie should be awesome though. And because they aren't going to do anything that some kid with a few years of marshal arts training can do. It should be easy to identify with the characters.
Web Based Training on Jan 16, 2009
I have reels of Hopkins, Brando,O'Toole, Caine,Freeman, Olivier,Ustinov and Laughton. Can I add these to your lists for Buttons?
Cubfan on Jan 16, 2009
Please Red, please name just one, I am begging you. I am on your side, I think we all are, let us help you, name just one and we will see. Cubby, great list to start with, just the mere mechanics and timing, let alone stage presence is all note-worthy. Bloody Brilliant! Let's start there.
Tim "Cloverfield" on Jan 17, 2009
Does that mean Red is down with Steve McQueen!!!!????????? Wow, the late Actor!!!!!!!!!......or does he mean the car? I think my hopes for him were just dashed. God Dammit Red!
D-9 on Jan 17, 2009
I am for Both McQueens. Those who can't what. teach? anyway. I can easily sit and watch The Good Bad and the ugly, then the next day watch Battlefield earth (Not literally, just as an example). I pretty much watch and enjoy most things. Life is too short to pity patty over actors.
"Red" - "Button" - "s" on Jan 17, 2009
Your right Red....totally. Good for you Lad......except pity patty over BAD Actors....not only is it my quest and duty, but my destiny and right. D-9 is the teacher, I am just a mere broken down lighting designer, with a curse to realize talent, from Hack. Course I do teach when I can, and that is rewarding, lighting principle and the like....I never cross the line into directing. Yet again, maybe I should. Everytime I am forced into a film with Nickey,Rogen or Stiller, I find myself yelling out loud "CUT! CUT GOD DAMMITT CUT!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!"
Tim "Cloverfield" on Jan 19, 2009
and it continues.
D-9 on Jan 19, 2009
And it continues like many actors careers will well past their prime. Well i guess we agree on our distaste for stiller. But i don't mind Nicholas or Setheron.
"Red" - "Button" - "s" on Jan 19, 2009
What is pity patty?
feohatestheworld on Jan 19, 2009
"Red" - "Button" - "s" on Jan 19, 2009
He still has not named an actor as requested.
PJSoles4ever on Jan 26, 2009
Aaron Johnson is going to be AMAZING as Dave! I'm so pumped!
Jay Ess on Jan 29, 2009
When the hell is the trailer going to be here?
