Kick-Ass 2 Header

Kick-Ass started a new generation of heroes who possess no superhuman powers but the passion to project the city. It may not have been the box office smash Lionsgate hoped it would be, but it made just enough for a sequel to be green lit. The thing is, Lionsgate isn’t behind this film any more, nor is the film’s first director Matthew Vaughn. Instead, Universal Pictures will distribute Kick-Ass 2, with Never Back Down director Jeff Wadlow steering the ship.

By the looks of the new trailer that has popped up, things haven’t changed for Aaron Johnson, Chloë Grace Moretz, and Christopher Mintz-Plasse. Johnson still plays Kick-Ass, a hero with semi-delusions of grandeur. Moretz plays Hit Girl, a hostile teenager, who acts much older than her age. Their actions have inspired the people of the city to become heroes like them. But Mintz-Plasse’s Mother F***er plans to take revenge on the two heroes who took his crime lord father’s life, by assembling the most bad ass super villains in the city.

Did I forget to mention that Jim Carrey has a role in this film? Hit the jump to see the red-band trailer.

Lindy Booth Joins Kick-Ass 2

Kick-Ass 2: Balls To The Wall will be the next big superhero movie to feature a large gathering of heroes stopping crime.

John Leguizamo, Donald Faison, Morris Chestnut and Robert Emms will be joining Aaron Johnson and Chloe Moretz to thwart crime and evil and stop the Red Mist (Christopher Mintz-Plasse) dead in his tracks. News that Jim Carrey was being courted to join the cast as The Colonel, the leader of Justice Forever, was pretty big. So its time to take it down a few notches.

According to reports, Lindy Booth is in negotiations to play Night Bitch, a once normal girl who decides to become a hero herself after she finds out that her sister has been murdered.

Jim Carrey May Star In Kick-Ass 2: Balls To The Wall

Now that Kick-Ass 2: Balls To The Wall is scheduled for summer release next year, production for the film is shortly getting underway. The cast, however, continues to grow. Recently John Leguizamo, Donald Faison, Morris Chestnut, and Robert Emms all have been cast in key roles, but Universal is looking to add another big name to the casting sheet.

Deadline says that the studio has been courting Jim Carrey for a “showy” supporting role in the film. According to the site, Carrey would play The Colonel, a hero who “helps galvanize the team of misfit super heroes assembled to fight evil.”

Last month we reported that Lionsgate had relinquished their hold on rights for Kick-Ass and that Universal had bought the rights to it. They immediately hired Never Back Down director Jeff Wadlow to helm the sequel to the ultra blood-gushing adaption of the Mark Millar comic of the same name. But before moving forward with production for the sequel, they had the get the cast back together. Aaron Johnson, Chloe Moretz, and Christopher Mintz-Plasse had all been vocal about their interest to return to the franchise and now they are making the first step to do so.

According to Deadline, the three actors are now all in various stages of negotiations to reprise their respective roles. Since there was no option for a sequel, new deals have to be drawn up. Johnson, Moretz, and Mintz-Plasse would reprise Kick-Ass, Hit Girl, and the Red Mist, respectively.

Movie Review: Nowhere Boy

Nowhere Boy
Directed by: Sam Taylor-Wood
Starring: Aaron Johnson, Kristin Scott Thomas, Anne-Marie Duff, Thomas Brodie Sangster, Sam Bell
PID
Release Date: October 10, 2010

There is the old argument between music fans – are you a Beatle or a Rolling Stone? Whether you like your rock n’ roll heavier or with a bit of a pop you simply can not discount the influence of The Beatles on modern music. Nowhere Boy is the story of one of the band’s chief song-writers, John Lennon. In his relatively short life he clocked up more number one singles and platinum selling albums than any other non-Beatle Englishman. He was, rightly, a legend in his own lifetime. What a story to tell.

Specifically, Nowhere Boy concentrates on a teenage Lennon (Aaron Johnson) growing up in Liverpool in the 1950s. His mother introduced him to rock and roll music and Elvis. With her help he learned to play the banjo and then guitar, all with the purpose of starting his own band. Shortly after forming The Quarrymen he was introduced to two other teenagers who would help him change the world: Paul McCartney (Thomas Brodie Sangster) and George Harrison (Sam Bell). Music would never be the same.

Would You Prefer Kick-Ass Or Chekov For Spider-Man?

Marvel movies certainly have been big news lately. With all the hub bub around the Captain America, Avengers, and Thor movies, you might forget there’s a reboot of the Spider-Man series coming out in 2012. You may recall Percy Jackson star Logan Lerman was the early rumor but since then a number of Hollywood’s freshest young faces have been linked to the role of Peter Parker.

As we previously reported, Kick-Ass star Aaron Johnson was recently spotted on the set of director Matthew Vaughn’s X-Men: First Class, but the latest internet rumor has him up for Sony’s Spider-Man reboot.

Johnson joins the already robust list of actors up for the part including Jamie Bell, Frank Dillane, Alden Ehrenreich, Andrew Garfield and Josh Hutcherson.

Also new to the list is Anton Yelchin, the 21-year-old who made a big impact in last year’s Star Trek and Termination Salvation.

Spoiler Talk: Kick-Ass

Kick AssI may not be able to make comic book movies, but I can kick your ass. I am a big comic book fan and read Kick-Ass a while back and really enjoyed it. That being said I was extremely nervous and excited about seeing this movie’s translation from comic book to movie. Well the time finally arrived for me and I got to see another one of my favorite comics on the big screen.

Now that I have seen the movie I have to say I really enjoyed it overall. One thing that stands true for most adaptations to film is that not everything translates perfectly from print to the big screen. As seen with Wanted a couple years ago this is nowhere near a straight translation from print to screen. The movie started production when only four issues of the comic had been written.

There will be people upset by the changes but overall they make sense for a big screen version of the story. I really hope people come into the movie with an open mind. I am sure that anybody with a chip on their shoulder from Wanted will probably not enjoy the movie as much as it should be enjoyed.

Well enough small talk let’s kick ass and start up a little SPOILER TALK about one of the most action-packed movie of the year so far.

Below are my spoiler filled thoughts on the movie Kick Ass. Don’t forget to add your spoiler filled thoughts at the end of the post in the comments section.

Kick-Ass movie posterKick-Ass
Directed by Matthew Vaughn
Starring Aaron Johnson, Chloë Grace Moretz, Nicolas Cage, Mark Strong, Christopher Mintz-Plasse
Rated R
Release date: April 16, 2010

I’m in love. My heart has been stolen and I may never get it back. I think you’d really like her. She’s cute, she’s into violence, she swears like a sailor, she can name ever John Woo film ever made, she’s into guns and heavy weaponry, she likes bowling and she’s 12 years old. Her name is Hit-Girl (or Mindy Macready if you’re not into secret identities) and when she’s on the screen she absolutely steals the show. Chloë Grace Moretz is amazing in the role and I’m now actually looking forward to seeing her in the upcoming American remake of the Swedish vampire film Let The Right One In (Let Me In). Think of her this way, she’s like John Rambo meets Polly Pocket and she’s involved in some of the best action scenes I’ve witnessed in the past decade. She was my favorite character from the comic book which the film is based on and she did not disappoint one iota in the film.

My history with this franchise goes back a bit. I’ve been looking forward to the film adaptation ever since I got my hands on the first issue of the Mark Millar/John Romita Jr. comic book of the same name way back in February of 2008. Reading the comic was like a breath of fresh air in the now stale and stagnant world of superhero comics. I’m proud to say the movie is equally refreshing to the world of superhero movies.

Full ‘Kick-Ass’ Green Band Trailer Allows All Ages To See How Awesome It Looks

Kick-Ass Banner

A brand new trailer for Matthew Vaughn‘s Kick-Ass has been released, and it is of the Green Band variety. For those who don’t know: Green Band trailers are the safe-for-all-audiences trailers that you usually see in theaters. We have seen a teaser trailer that was fine for all to see and we’ve seen the graphic Red Band trailer that showcased the film’s R-rated content, and now comes the full-length trailer that kids of all ages (who won’t be able to see the movie when it comes out) can watch as many times as they wish!

While it’s the mercilessly graphic content of the adult-aimed trailer that really gets me giggly-giddy for how insanely fun this movie is going to be, this new trailer is probably the best to watch if you’re not familiar with the movie. It’s the best one yet when it comes to setting the film up and showing off its characters and just giving you an overall feel of what to expect — most likely so you can go in and get shocked by all of the stuff you didn’t expect.

Continue on reading to check out the new trailer and read the film’s synopsis if you have not already done so.

Kick-Ass Hit-Girl Poster

Ever since we first heard that Layer Cake and Stardust director Matthew Vaughn was raising $75 Million himself in order to make a movie based on Mark Millar‘s graphic novel Kick-Ass, our intrigue has been naturally high. Ever since we heard that one of the main reasons that Vaughn couldn’t get the studio backing for the movie was due to its ultra-violent content — most-notably due to the ultra-violence caused by an 11-year-old kid named Hit-Girl who dismembers with swords and ends lives with guns — we were all very, very much sold. C’mon peoples — we know these things are bad in the context of real life; that doesn’t mean we can’t enjoy the hell out of it in a fictional comic book movie!

Flash forward to present day: we’ve seen many images, we’ve seen an awesome trailer, and now, we finally get to see the RED BAND trailer courtesy of IGN. And of course we all know what this means: the trailer focuses solely on Hit-Girl and why there was oh-so-much controversy about this little girl to begin with.

This is the kind of trailer that will either sell or sever the interest of movie-goers. Kick-Ass is not meant for everyone, and if this offends you, then you’ll be wanting to avoid hitting the theater when this one storms in. Most who will see the movie are probably already planning on seeing it, but if not, this is the kind of awesomeness that can push thee over the edge.

Clickety-click on on over to check out the Red Band trailer yourself, but be warned, this is clearly NSFW material!
