Trailerama: Kick-Ass

One day, a high school nerd decides to stop talking about superheroes and become one himself. In this adaptation of the Mark Millar/John Romita Jr. comic, he joins the superhero community largely through moxie alone. Trouble is, some of these characters aren’t what you’d call well-balanced. There’s at least one chuckle to be had in this trailer, as well as the thought that most contemporary superhero films are so aware of their absurdity, that any satire might be redundant. Fans, we suspect, will largely be attracted to the generous helpings of mega-violence. Be warned: this is from the same studio who brought us The Spirit. Onetime Guy Ritchie mucker Matthew Vaughn directs a script by his Stardust scribe Jane Goldman.
