Kick-Ass Movie Posters, Do They Kick Ass?
This is pretty sweet. IGN has 'premiered' new movie posters for Kick-Ass. What's sweet about this is it means the movie is that much closer to being released. The movie is coming to theaters on April 16, 2010. I believe there was a rough screening recently and there were positive reactions. The footage seen at San Diego Comic-Con was great.
You can see the posters (above) fit together to spell out "Kick-Ass." We see Red Mist, Kick-Ass, Hit-Girl and Big Daddy. Issue #8 is scheduled to be released on December 9, 2009. If you haven't read the series, you definitely should before the movie comes out. Amazon lists the trade coming out on December 14, 2009. I'm not sure if that's exactly right.
Here's a better look at each individual poster:
Ok.....i might be crazy, but how about he gets the goddamn comic out ON TIME before Millar worries about making a movie. Seriously?!?! There were like 4 month delays bettween issues (and not only once). I get it, movies = money, but how about you wait until the work is finished before you whore yourself out?
That said I love the series (mostly) and between this and the Scott Pilgrim movie im pretty happy. Small issues with Hit-Girl not having katannas and Big Daddy looking like Owl Man from Watchmen.....
Update: Just took a look at the imdb page, I am definitely not seeing this movie, fool me once, shame on you hollywood(Watchmen).
You know, I don't think I ever got around to reading #2 or maybe it was #3...either way, I should probably get to reading this series before the movie comes out, I know I loved the first issue"
I feel pretty much the same way. I'm not sure what's kept me from hopping on this band wagon.
Hmmm Kick-Ass appears to have wet ass stains and also seems too be kind of big for the way he was portrayed in the comic. Sure a tall sexy anglo saxon dude is always a must for male movie lead. But the kid was sort of wimpy in the comic >_> (I loved the comic btw)
posters.cool. means the movie is that much closer to being released. as G-Man says, not sure you can judge the likely quality of a film by the poster.
it is a bit frustrating that the book has months between issues, but i doubt Millar's movie workload has too much to do with it. there are two other individuals handling the screenplay (Vaughn & Goldman - anyone seen Stardust? i haven't).
the upshot is.. even if the film is krud (even on a Ghost Rider/Wanted scale), you still get the enjoyment of seeing a great book adapted to film.
