Grab Another Look @ "Kick-Ass"

Sneak Peek another new trailer for director Matthew "Layer Cake" Vaughn's upcoming feature "Kick-Ass".

Lionsgate will release the film in North America April 16, 2010 with Focus Features Intl. distributing throughout the UK, Australia, Germany, Latin America, Austria, Switzerland and New Zealand.

The film stars Nicolas Cage, Aaron Johnson, Chloe Moretz, Christopher Mintz-Plasse and Mark Strong.

Vaughn’s Marv Films independently financed the action feature, co-produced by Brad Pitt, Dede Gardner and Jeremy Kleiner for Plan B.

Premise of "Kick-Ass" follows 'Dave Lizewski', a New York City high school student and only child of single father 'Greg Willer'. Dave takes an interest in comic books as his inspiration to become a vigilante hero, a
ssembling a suit and mask, worn under his normal clothing.

His first attempt at fighting crime results in a beating and stabbing, followed by wandering through the streets and being hit by a car. But determined to retain his secret identity, Dave hides his costume before paramedics arrive.

Dave tells his father he was 'mugged', before undergoing four operations followed by intense physical rehabilitation. Weeks later, bruised but undaunted, Dave tosses his crutches, dons his costume and takes off again for 'patrol'.

After saving a man in need of assistance, an onlooker films the scene on a cellphone camera and uploads it to YouTube, turning Dave Lizewski into an instant sensation called 'Kick-Ass'.
