Must Watch: Hit-Girl Gets Her Own Red Band Kick-Ass Trailer

Hit-Girl in Kick-Ass

Now this is why I love Hit-Girl so damn much! Although the movie Kick-Ass is about the kid named Dave Lizewski who becomes the costumed hero known as Kick-Ass, he meets some other characters along the way (including Christopher Mintz-Plasse who plays a hero called Red Mist). However, one of the craziest people he comes across is an 12-year-old girl named Hit-Girl played by Chloe Moretz. And yes, she kicks serious ass. If you've been wondering why this is going to be Rated-R, then here's a few reasons. Matthew Vaughn does not cut back on bit on the violence and it's gruesome but completely awesome. Enjoy this one below.

Watch the Hit-Girl specific red band trailer for Matthew Vaughn's Kick-Ass from YouTube:

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. How does that look? Badass?

MTHand on Dec 21, 2009


A little girl in a costume cutting off legs of and shooting huge grown men? And this is only a quarter of the film? SIGN ME THE HELL UP! I want to see this now! It's good to see that filmmakers keep getting ballsier as far as action goes.

JP on Dec 21, 2009


Damn. This is why I want to be a filmmaker. Pure entertainment!

Tristan on Dec 21, 2009

Superhaus on Dec 21, 2009


this film is going to be great.

tobi,leader of the akatsuki on Dec 21, 2009


For Nugeman, I don't know if the song has a name but, it's the theme of the live action kids show from the 70's called The Banana Splits.

Superhaus on Dec 21, 2009


Lol, this is going to be fantastic

Daniel on Dec 21, 2009


Wow. I hadn't even read single article before this, but now, im excited to see this.

Efrain on Dec 21, 2009

Darrin on Dec 21, 2009


Wow...I have been waiting for a movie like this for a long time. I cant even describe how fucking awesome that was. I can already see the stickuptheirass PC people up in arms about this.

Cody on Dec 21, 2009


OH, I'M IN LOVE!!! More please!

Avatarad on Dec 21, 2009


i just hope they saved some back for the movie, but that got me super interested

dealers wheel on Dec 21, 2009


Fuck yeah! Man I can't wait for this!!! I'm not sure which I more excited for! This or Iron Man 2!!! I'm actually excited to see this!

Tra la la la la di da on Dec 21, 2009


Song is Tra La La from the opening theme to The Banana Splits Adventure Hour, not sure who is covering it though.

Vertigo on Dec 21, 2009


if this is 5 minutes of the movie, then goddamn give her a spinoff already

harrison on Dec 21, 2009


This movie is not going to suck.

Brandon on Dec 21, 2009


good movie but..............horrible influence for the child i predict rehab as well as all kinds of therapy in the next ten years for that girl, thanks to the director...would hate to be her parent, and yes i agree with comment 22 im pretty sure that's going to happen.

Rudy on Dec 21, 2009


My wife got upset about the "ok you cunts thing", kinda over the top language for mainstream viewing I think.

Richard on Dec 21, 2009



moviefan111 on Dec 21, 2009


Iron... who?

Dreckent on Dec 21, 2009


Then I suggest you and your wife dont watch this movie #37 !!! Go watch Iron Man 2 and SHaddap !!! I will be watching both and enjoy every minute of it !!!

LORD MANTACO on Dec 21, 2009


#33 That would be The Dickies #37 Bwahahahahahahahahaha! Want some cheese with your whine? Personally I can't wait 6 years, Rule 34 dat shit now!

Hunter Reed on Dec 21, 2009



DoomCanoe on Dec 21, 2009


freaken sweet 🙂 haha

Madnezz344 on Dec 21, 2009


@37 thats why this is a REDBAND TRAILER its not mainstream viewing.

Cody on Dec 21, 2009


@37 So has your wife not watch films in the past 40 years? Anyways this looks so fucking awesome.

SkaOreo on Dec 21, 2009


Nic Cage is awesome

BLV on Dec 21, 2009


@37 next time your wife says something like that, i'm gonna give her a hot carl. and she'll like it.

snitch robinson on Dec 21, 2009


@37 did your wife also remind you that you have no balls?

dudley perkins on Dec 21, 2009


I was going to attempt to defend #37... But, can't find a reason to do so. I couldn't care less what other peoples' kids say. Hell, I'm grounded enough in reality that I know my kid's gonna swear up a storm... Cause he's my kid. Its a freaking movie. People need to lighten up. If you don't like the language, don't go see it! I'll be watching this shit for sure. And buying the DVD, so I can watch with my kid, when he's old enough to imitate the behavior!

nate on Dec 21, 2009


You guys need to grow the fuck up. If everyone watching was just a fucking 18yr with a hard-on for that little girl calling people cunts, then I guess it would be all good. I want this movie to succeed, excuse me for having a opinion that isn't the result of fetal alcohol syndrome.

Richard on Dec 21, 2009


I dont need defending I'm telling you what my wife said, you know the opposite sex, that isn't 12 calling people cunts. I guess when your mom and sister grow up using that language with the random guys they bring over for the night it just becomes second nature huh?

Richard on Dec 21, 2009


Is it supposed to be a realistic take on superheroes? As far as action is concerned - I've seen "Equilibrium". Thank you.

drew on Dec 22, 2009


Holy fucking shit,that bitch is hardcore

RocknRolla on Dec 22, 2009


@37 51 52 shutup you effing twat noone cares wot ur ladyboy wife said or wot you say. Now eff off would ya

Lazarus from Sparta...DETHKLOK RULES!!!!! on Dec 22, 2009



NooMiNaK on Dec 22, 2009


Worth watching just for her.............

Marty on Dec 22, 2009


@#37 Richard sorry to say this but your wife is soft she cant take bad language from a kid. alot of young boys/girls on the streets swear alot. also alot of movies have kids swearing. oh another thing this movie is R-Rated so anything goes.

tazz on Dec 22, 2009


Not sure if antone has posted this one on here yet. Kick Ass - Big Daddy , Hit Girl and the Bullet Proof Vest

Marty on Dec 22, 2009


hmmm ITS FRIGGING TIME someone got out there and tried to match the actual source, the comic itself and not what execs think it'd look cool and people should see 😀 on that aspect thnk you mr Vaughn thnk god its gonna be R rated. i would really be sad not being able to see the awesome fight scenes and blood and black eyes broken bones ripped flesh portrayed as in the comic... i really think its gonna be a good year 😀 (and whatever happened to the saying "oh its really cute when its small" 😀 i personally think its a lot fun hearing a kid swear) if you hear your kid swearing its not his fault, not the news's fault or the comics' or the video games' or the films' fault. Its mainly our fault. its just easy to blame the media... Us parents (and i am not a parent :P) should teach our kids why it is bad to swear. not keep them locked up in a pink room where everything is perfect and only love poems can be heard amongst birds chirping, heck, where there may even live Unicorns wander. let your sense of logic and right guide you. and relax. its just movies, fun two hours time in all the misery, violence in the world 😀 I will watch this in theaters own the bluray watch it at home and reread the comics more than two more times 😀

burak "Daequitas" on Dec 22, 2009


This looks beyond stupid. All of you are idiots. Jesus Christ, it's no wonder why these piece of shit films keep making money and keep getting sequels.

K on Dec 22, 2009


37, Richard, are you serious? What is cunt a new word in cinema suddenly? If you want I could find a gigantic back-catalog of movies that use the word cunt. Starting with Scarface where I think it's said like 50 times. 62, K, you can suck my balls. Each one. Equal time. For at least 8 hours. Then work the shaft, you dirty fag-whore. Movie looks entertaining as hell! I'm happy to see a red-band trailer for this because I was wondering exactly HOW violent this would get. Wasn't expecting 'Warzone' violent.

Syphous on Dec 22, 2009


My instincts tell me "But Frank, Nick Cage is in it and you know he turns everything to crap." But these trailers are making it look great. I am so conflicted at this point.

Frank on Dec 22, 2009


Shucks. I've read all the current comics, and I feel that this isn't as stylized as I'd thought it would be. But fuck it-- it's a little girl doin' nasty things to grown men (so to speak). I'm in. Can't wait to see Kick-Ass in action.

Ozzie Davis on Dec 22, 2009


anyone who has read the comic can appreciate this trailer. God i wanna shoot some fake guns off.....making movies is fun you c*nts!

duane on Dec 22, 2009


Thanks Cage YOU C***!!! Your inept timing, horrid screen presence, worth less cartoon voice now force me to avoid another one of your bad performances. Too late to do some re-shoots and cast an actual actor in the role of Big Daddy! I actually wanted to see this. God Damn you Cage!!! HUMBUG!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Clover on Dec 22, 2009


What in the h*ll is this? on one hand this looks totally retarded but then on the other hand its so radically different, and entertaining, that it could be one of those dumb movies that you end up liking as long as you dont take it too seriously.

Chase on Dec 22, 2009


You guys just wrote about how adaptations and unoriginal ideas are annoying and are always whining about it yet you're drooling over this? This is not original. The comic was, but this is just an adaptation so stop complaining about people making movies from adaptations please.

branden on Dec 22, 2009


the scene with the outfit reminded me of Gunslinger Girls... anywho.... yes, yes, and yes. this movie will be the beez kneez

mrmr on Dec 22, 2009


i wonder wat parents lets there kid take that role

Jason on Dec 22, 2009


"Ok you Cunts....Let's see what you can do now" classic, money is on Hit-Girl, she will steal the movie lol can't wait for this #37 - tell wifey to relax, it's rated r, she is not forced to watch's a MOVIE #66 AHHHH only time will tell, Cage might perform better then expected on your performance scale #67 It's an adaption of a comic series, it's made to look retarded in a comical / graphical sense, roll with far looking great

Blue & Orange NY on Dec 22, 2009


holy shit!!! that's awesome!!!!!

F.C. on Dec 22, 2009


Yay.... more ultra violence for the retard generation

moif on Dec 22, 2009


I can't wait for this! Probably haven't had this kind of fun since the Dark Knight's Joker.

Johnny Neat on Dec 22, 2009


I actually thought Nic cage looked pretty good in this....he wasnt really taking himself seriously it seemed and thats the only way Cage can pull off a good performance.

Cody on Dec 22, 2009


Ok, 57. Equilibrium factors into this how? IT was a little girl on a killing spree. lol. "You always knock me for a loop." LOL, Cage. XD! Looks awesome!

Lar on Dec 22, 2009


My wife can say whatever the fuck she wants, shes entitled to her own opinion. I laughed when I heard her say it myself. Then again I'm from another demographic then you little bitches that like to talk shit safely behind the internet.

Richard on Dec 22, 2009


So Superbad meets Wanted, with a dash of Equilibrium?? That would be uber cool any day of the week, but the fact this is a Matthew Vaughn property makes it even cooler. WOW, this is going to be fun!! I really can't wait!!!

Marc on Dec 22, 2009


i dont know but heheh each time i watch this trailer i get a feeling this movie is gonna rock 😀 its fast its fun but its dark its bloody its almost what the comic tells... i hope they dont do a trailer for every character 😀 but then again what the heck, go for it 😀 i especially loved the scene where she whips the hand that holds the gun and yanks to have the guy shoot himself right under the chin 😀 perfectly done 😀 i gotta watch it again 😀

Burak "D'aequitas" on Dec 22, 2009


That is AWESOME!

captain subtext on Dec 22, 2009


This trailer looks fun with aCapital F, cannot wait for this i tend to go for lionsgate films anyway Kick ass is going to Kickass, cannot wait 🙂

Cineprog on Dec 22, 2009


How in the hell is superbad at all associated with this? Cause of mintz-plasse? people need to realize hes an actor and thats not his only fucking role in hollywood.

Cody on Dec 22, 2009


Why is April 16th a terrible opening day? It's competition is Piranha 3D, The Back-up Plan and Death at a Funeral. Is it because it's a week after The Losers? June 4th would have been a good date, but Lionsgate already has slotted Killers (Katherine Heigl and Ashton Kutcher) for that date. The only other dates that would conceivably work are July 30th or the last weeks in August.

Travis on Dec 22, 2009


Richard, Richard, Richard. You are a typing contradiciton, calling people bitches from the safety of YOUR internet. All that being aside, I would think that a little girl saying cunt is small potatoes compared to the over the top violence she enacts. If my wife said she had a problem with the word, i would say oh well and that would be that, i wouldn't come onto a thread and leave a comment about it and then defend it. That makes me think it is really you with the problem and are just hiding behind a skirt.

Matt on Dec 22, 2009


Is it wrong that I have a boner right now....

Unseen on Dec 22, 2009


I love this clip! i saw it on IGN and they had a bunch of bonus features there inclduing a soundboard widget. I fuckin love this stuff!

theshatz on Dec 22, 2009


The more I see, the more I like. Can't wait for it to come out!

Ezza72 on Dec 22, 2009


hey marty! thanks for the additional was cool! anyone else want to see hit-girl disembowel "richard", "K" , and "moif"?

beavis on Dec 22, 2009


hey marty! thanks for the additional was cool! anyone else want to see hit-girl disembowel "richard", "K" , and "moif"?

beavis on Dec 22, 2009


AHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH.... WOOHOO... looking crazy fun... This is gonna be a blast

Dusty on Dec 22, 2009


why didnt they just animate this thing. I mean, its nothing more than a live action CARTOON!!! what a f*cking joke. But I guess it will give all the pre-teen gangster wanna-be's a hard on.

slopbucket on Dec 22, 2009


I always rag on people on here who use the that was a "holy shit" trailer... But damn, that was a Holy shit trailer. That looked bad ass!

clippers350 on Dec 22, 2009


Beavis, no prob's 🙂

Marty on Dec 22, 2009



Garrett on Dec 22, 2009


This movie looks pathetic. But hey, now gun-slinging pedophiles have someone they can look up to.

me on Dec 22, 2009


#96 watch the movie before you judge and don't hate on those who like it. Didn't they teach you tolerance in church or was the preacher too busy pumping jesus juice up your keister.

xan on Dec 22, 2009


#95........what a foollish and misinformed comment. i have NO sexual interest in that little girl and i don't "sling" guns. it's just a wild, "over-the-top" idea for a movie and she plays the character really well. if you don't like the movie, ok. but don't assume people are pedophiles because of interest in this movie. i think it's cool to see a little girl play a character like this - instead of the usual "victim" or ditzy "teen- crap movie" role.

beavis on Dec 23, 2009


Might this be the only bearable movie with Nic Cage in it?

RC on Dec 23, 2009


The only cunt in here is Cage's acting, or lack there of. HUMBUG is right!

christmas buttons on Dec 23, 2009


Richard. Lol.

danielvutran on Dec 23, 2009


what's up with the nic cage hate? i think he comes across as funny playing the eccentric "pseudo super-hero" dad. and must be young - remember "raising arizona"? how about "lord of war"? the first "national treasure"? windtalkers was ok. yea, he's had some stinkers; but, he's not as bad as many make him out to be. oh, that new movie where he's transporting the witch looks pretty good too.

beavis on Dec 23, 2009


Oh man, someone called Richard's wife a "lady boy", i was laughing my ass off. So Richard? don't put comments like that specially in forums. They will eat you alive. LOL

akumared on Dec 23, 2009


Trailers are made to sell movies, ergo I can judge a movie based on the trailer. That's what everyone does whether they choose to go see it of not. And as for the pedophile comment, it was aimed at all those saying "why wait tip she's 18" and "I've got wood after watching that" people who see a fucking 12 year old as a sex object... What the he'll else do you call them if not a pedophile? Either way, I'm entitled to my opinion as much as anyone else. This movie looks pathetic

me on Dec 23, 2009


@103 you contradict yourself so many times it's impossible to take yourself seriously. Hahaha, this movie looks pathetic from what? The trailer? You said so yourself you can't judge a movie by its trailer, nice logic there einstein.

danielvutran on Dec 23, 2009


Movie looks like it will be fun. Richard I bet ur wife is a stinker on her rags...... you gymp.

Det. Mclane on Dec 24, 2009


I hope the trailer isn't giving too much of the "wow factor" away... Trailers have a way of doing that these days. Looks fun in a Zombieland sort of way.

wHiskey Tango... on Dec 24, 2009


danielvutran, why don't you wait to take any basic course in logic and critical thinking, and be sure to carefully read my comment first. i said that i CAN judge a movie based on the trailer, that's why trailers are made. and judging from everything i've seen for kick-ass, it looks pathetic. and in retrospect, it makes me kind of sad because i was excited for it when i first heard about it, but to see what the film makers have done makes it look like a generic piece of trash

me on Dec 24, 2009

108're right that you have a right to view any movie as "trash" if that's how if affects you, BUT - how is this generic? i've never seen a 12 year-old girl doing the stuff hit-girl is doing. nor have i ever seen a movie where regular people decide to be "super-heros" and make up for the fact that they don't have "special abilities" by using gratuitous amounts of violence. AND, it's refreshing to see a film-maker not play it safe and make this a PG-13 movie. you say you were excited for this when you first heard about it - what did you expect to see from this? i think it's more than lived up to it's early info.

beavis on Dec 24, 2009


thanks, beavis. and i have to say, it wasn't my intention to insult anybody or start a fight, so if i offended anyone, i apologize. however, when reading through the comments and seeing some and seeing some people make sexual references about a 12 year old, to be honest it angered me enough to say something. as for the regular people deciding to be super heros, first thing that comes to mind is (even though the movie sucked) the watchmen. with the exception of dr. manhattan, nobody else had super powers and they resorted to extreme violence to fight crime (the Comedian is the perfect example). another is the punisher- but again all the movie adaptations fail to live up to the comics. my only point in all of this is, if you want to see the movie, by all means go see it. but those that dislike seeing a child saying lines like , "ok, you cunts" and being involved in extreme acts of violence are just as entitled to voice their opinions as those who enjoy it. sad fact is "imitable acts" has some grounds- turns out kids and teens are highly impressionable. and in this world violence- no matter how stylized- begets violence.

me on Dec 24, 2009


i have to agree. if you don't like seeing kids doing and saying what hit-girl does - STAY AWAY! but i won't because i think she's great. and by the way, this isn't a kids movie.....rated R. so, i hope kids and teens aren't watching this. i know i would NEVER take children to see this movie. from the trailers, i don't really get the same feel for this as i did for watchmen. while both do have super-heros with no special powers - i feel they come across as very different movies. for me, hit-girl and her dad will really carry the movie. i like what i've seen from their scenes. it's just so outrageous to see a young girl and her dad "fighting crime" together. like the criminal in the trailer says: "it's a kid?!", that's kind of cool. i won't know if her twisted lines or over-the-top violence is too much/gratuitous until i see the movie. as far as adaptations from's hit or miss. i was VERY disappointed in "fantastic four" movie. i was a big fan of the comics, as a kid. when i saw the movie - i just sat there in disbelief. i didn't think FF could be ruined.......but the movie managed to do just that. hey, did you ever see "baby blues"? i liked that movie a lot, but was left very unsettled by how "mom" was portrayed. it was shocking to see a mother do what she did in the movie.

beavis on Dec 25, 2009


what's the song used in the first half of the trailer?

Banon on Dec 26, 2009


Hit-Girl sure kicks ass!

Robbie on Dec 27, 2009


I think this trailer has too much violence performed only by a child. I can imagine how the movie looks like! I wonder how did we end up allowing this to be done? Why is it even approved? Why does Nicholas Cage accepted this part? Doesn't anyone believe of the influence that this film can have on the kids? I already imagine kids chopping up legs... So much violence done by a kid...even if she is the positive character. Where can i send a complaint ?

Jorj Theodorescu on Dec 30, 2009


i agree with #1. 😀 that looks great! "Just fucking with you dad." Ha,ha!

em on Dec 31, 2009


The song is Banana Split covered by The Dickies.

Kimberly on Jan 2, 2010


Richard = OWNED

Richard on Jan 8, 2010


i personally cant wait for this movie. i agree with all those who are commenting on how sick the people are who are turned on by the twelve year old, but to say it shouldnt occur is uncalled for. in terms of the kid actor its a pretty original opportunity for the actor and the film industry, because now all we seem to have is little girls being victims to an onslaught of crime and violence. but now we have a character who transcends above this stereotype, certainly not a role model but a smart character choice. and for all saying this will be just another unoriginal hero movie, i have to say that if this film is anything like the comic, which it should be when you consider how close mark was to its production, then all the doubters may be shocked to find a story that is both original and highly interesting. the comic was made for comic readers with references and knowledge that is second nature to them, so the movie should be the same, its not going to be aimed at 13 year old kids, and the film should not be blamed for idiotic parents who take their child to see this. as it always has been with cinema, no one is forcing you to watch the movie. and the whole no powers but crazy super moves thing, not every no power hero is shown with this bruce lee style prowess. ever considered that when put into context with the story line of the film and most likely the comic their maybe reasoning behind it?

lachie on Jan 13, 2010


this a hero movie like marvel or what !

affilrev on Jan 16, 2010


just a movie?....well, yeah it is that...but we all know there's too many folks out there that lose that concept somewhere along the line, as evidenced by columbine, and virgina tech and more, where people thought ultra-violence was an appropriate response to addressing what they percieved to be some sort of imbalance or fairness to the film makers, it's hard to judge what the real context of the flick is only seeing a trailer, and i wouldn't be surprised if it has some redeeming artistic or social value...then again, i wouldn't be surprised if it doesn't...the writers and director obviously have a talent for black comedy and satire...and maybe a desire of wanting to become the next quentin tarrantino by their "can you top this" over the top over-the-topsmanship(?)...remains to be seen...but surely, kids too young for the R rating will be able to get bootleg copies, not to mention getting their older buddies to rent it for them at blockbuster...or maybe their parents will take them to the theater, cuz it's "just a movie"....and once the dvd is in the home and the parents are shopping at home depot, the kids will pop it right into the dvd player...but movies influence life, not just imitate result- somewhere down the line, this results in a big shoot-em-up in a home, neighborhood, school or 4th of july picnic, probably by a kid wearing a goofy mask like the girl in the flick...and for those drooling over the flick and getting turned-on over a 12 year old blessing out grown-ups with the c, f, and whatever other words are order of the day and righting the evils of america with a couple of automatic pistols and unlimited ammo...well, if it's your home, neighborhood, school or picnic, don't be surprised, don't be shocked that it happened to you or someone you know, and don't complain....

don't forget to duck... on Feb 24, 2010
