First Look: Check out the new KICK-ASS character poster featuring McLovin as The Red Mist!!!

Ahoy, squirts! Quint here. Matthew Vaughn's KICK-ASS is one of my most anticipated films of 2010 based on what I've read of Mark Millar's comic, heard of the set from our dear departed Moriarty and the footage from Comic-Con. The flick can't come soon enough is basically what I'm saying. And in anticipation I'm happy to present your first look at a brand new character poster for the flick courtesy of Lionsgate. The poster feature Chris Mintz-Plasse as The Red Mist. Funny how his Superbad character had the "I Am..." catch-phrase which is repeated here with the website url at the bottom of the poster. Anyway, enough Jibber Jabber as Mr. T. would say. Here's the poster. Click to get the high-res version. Enjoy!

    This will be a disaster....

    by Praetor

    A fun disaster to be sure but a disaster nonetheless. 'This is going to fuck mainstream America right up'? Actually mainstream America has probably come to expect this by now. You know like Watchmen was going to fuck mainstream America right up? And that was based on a classic text.

    by Ronald Raygun

    I know what you mean. Ironic detachment is best used sparingly. Especially in movies that suddenly want you to care in the third act. "Sorry movie, you're too hip for me to give emotional investment to", I say.

  • Dec. 4, 2009, 3:52 a.m. CST

    Oh ...

    by reaper28

    And I can't fucking WAIT for this movie. <p>The question I have is, if Kick-Ass comes up smelling of roses at the end of the film, will we suddenly have an influx of super-heroes appear in the "real world" ...? <p>I fucking hope so</p>

    I'm trying REEEEAAAAALLL hard not to get cynical

    by IndustryKiller!

    But the more positive reactions I read the more I think it's a farce. Kind of an easy to digest "bad ass" deconstructionist tripe. I mean are we not fucking sick of this deconstructionist shit yet? And what drives me most insane is how so many things deconstruct the superhero while simultaneously being your run of the mill superhero film. Having it both ways like that is such a cliche. Literally the only successfully deconstructionist film I've ever seen on screen is Unbreakable. Which never sold out its characters or world for cheap thrills. That's a stellar film.

  • Dec. 4, 2009, 3:57 a.m. CST

    I'd really dig a good Robin movie, and done right. No Batman. This'd be after the partnership. New outfit, new gear. Gotham's a big city...<p> (of course you'd get the Batman cameo)

    by Star Hump

    would make a great book title. Shit, most of my friends don't read, and I can barely get through 3 pages myself these days. I check comic books out of the library. I really do. I love the Justice Leasgue beyond description, especially Wonder Woman.

    Read the comics...

    by V'Shael

    And if anyone thinks its "realistic" then they must have the most tenuous grip with reality. <p> This movie needs to be sold like Mystery Men, but actually funny. Or like "My ex-super-girlfriend" but actually funny. <p> It's a comic movie. Treat it as such, and make it funny.

    Star Hump is right! Robin kicks ass

    But that wasn't hard.

    I don't know anything about kickass, but from the marketing

    by CronenbergResearcher

    it looks like the superhero equivalent of zombieland, that is a lighthearted comedic take on its chosen genre. Now Zombieland was good, but not great. Hopefully Kickass will live up to the insane amount of hype its been getting on this site.

  • Dec. 4, 2009, 9:11 a.m. CST

    Better than IronMan2 poster indeed, but

    by onezeroone

    the costume looks too slick to fit into the realistic and home-made vibe it should be giving, unless am missing something. Nonetheless, nitpicking is nitpicking.

  • Dec. 4, 2009, 9:34 a.m. CST

    my only complaint...

    by yourSTEPDADDY

    ...why the part of readin minds...I could understand if he had a larger cranium or if his name was MindBlitz or somethin...and Red Mist sounds like a Mountain Dew apple flavor drink or somethin...

    And MariusXe, I would give props to Chris Nolan

    by Continentalop

    If he can put Robin in the next Dark Knight without pissing off or alienating the fans and people who see that series as "realistic". Personally, I think it easily could be done (well, at least an appearance by Dick Grayson).

    Conti - Mark Millar is definitely SHITE...

    by spud mcspud

    Read SAVIOUR or CHOSEN for his limited, PREACHER-obssessed view of religion - which means, he hates religion for all the usual asinine, badly-thought-out reasons, but none deeper than his fan-worship of Garth Ennis' PREACHER. SAVIOUR is just shit (and uses Jonathan ross as the visual for the Antichrist - dear oh dear...), and CHOSEN is the tale of the Second Coming, with the most obvious twist ending in comics history and even less decent writing than SAVIOUR. I can't even get into WANTED, which most twelve-year old comics geeks would find childish and patronising, and KICK-ASS will appeal to the likes of those who lie awake wanking over the idea of a movie called MILEY CYRUS: ZOMBIE KILLER.<P> In short, Millar is a childish, unimaginative hack, and his work is too pathetic for words. When even Angelina Jolie as an assassin can't make your story look cool, maybe it's time to admit you're shit.

    Man, he's one fuckin' annoying kid. I saw SUPERBAD once on the big screen, laughed a couple of times, wondered what the fuss was about. Rewatched it on DVD this weekend for the first time since the cinema, didn't laugh once. Fucking awful, and McLovin' is the least funny comic creation in ages. The best thing about that movie is that Emma Stone got noticed and ended up playing Wichita in ZOMBIELAND. Otherwise, fuck SUPERBAD and fuck McLovin'.

    but that's kind of the point.

And while at first I wasnt thrilled with Nicholas Cage being cast as Big Daddy, after reading the latest issue I now know he'll be great for the part.<p> Could be worse, they could be making a movie of Frank Miller's All Star Batman And Robin The Boy Wonder.

    Very, very, upbeat. When the redband hits, if it's at all well cut, it ought to go viral. This is gleefully hard R material and even more importantly, the kind of film that does make money. It's almost impossible to cut a decent green-band for it if they filmed the draft I read. I'm amazed there were two words to give Hit-Girl. Very, very filthy character. And unique use of profanity too! Right now, buzz is minimal but man, when accurate ads hit...

    Yours is a critique that says much more about the viewer than the subject themselves. WTF.

    The problem with this kind of movies is

    by ominus

    that usually the studio does not know where to target at,their movie.Which leads to a misplaced advertisement,which means the non comic-readers moviegoers will get the wrong impression about the comic-movie and the final result is that the film fails in the BO. <p>the same thing happened with failed not because it was not well-made but because the average moviegoer didnt know what the movie was really about.And that was purely the fault of the studio. <p>now kick-ass is an r-rated comic-movie which deconstructions the super-hero comic genre in a comedic way.essentially something like watchmen but less serious and more funny.which means that the chance for the studio to make the same mistake is not minimal.they should be careful on how they are going to promote this movie to the audience who doesnt know anything about the comic.

    ...BurnHollywood, heh, I knew you or someone else would...

    by FlickaPoo

    ...say that. I work in the picture making world (books mostly) and you always have to watch out for that can leave it in or even design it on purpose if you want to, but it sucks when you don't catch it before it goes out into the world...once people notice it they can never unsee it...

    I love them movies, I still wait for the day when the worlds finally ready to witness them in a big budget hollywood live action form.

  • Dec. 6, 2009, 12:54 a.m. CST, i'd be stoked

    by THEoverfiend

    for a series remake on Showtime or something like that as well. the way Japanese cinema is going with some of these recent releases like Machinegun Girl and Tokyo Gore Police it is ssooo not out of the realm of possibility. ultimate X-mas gift would be the 9 disc set of The Fiend. more demon penises, nazi death-rape machines, and multiple double penetration demon/human/beast orgies than a whole asian video store in 9 lovely discs

    Hard to read some of these pompous talkbackers

    by liesandpicturesofalsolies

    This looks like a fun movie, though.

    THEoverfiend, haha thats a hell of a list for santa

    by UGG

    I know that japan made some live action versions of La Blue Girl and some other tentacle rapeage movie, but there not very good sadly, (and not nearly as sexy). But a $150 million budget hollywood version would skull fuck everyone and is possibly the only place left to go in western cinema I think.
