I'm happy to share that Chicago will be hosting a red carpet premiere event for the movie Kick-Ass. The film is directed by Matthew Vaughn
and starring Aaron Johnson, Christopher Mintz-Plasse, Mark Strong,
Chloë Grace Moretz, and Nicolas Cage. On Thursday April 15, 2010 the day before C2E2 (Chicago Comic & Entertainment Expo), cast members will be present at the premiere. Tickets will be available on C2E2.com and IGN.com in the coming weeks.
The next day, Friday April 16, fans attending C2E2 will have another
oppritunity to meet the cast members from Kick-Ass during an autograph
session. Details of the time and location of this signing are coming
Kick-Ass is an upcoming
super hero film based off a comic book series. The film follows a
teenage boy named Dave Lizewski (Aaron Johnson), who is so inspired by
comics, he believes he could be a super hero. He dresses up in costume
as "Kick-Ass", and wins a fight. Someone catches the event on video,
and Kick-Ass becomes an YouTube sensation. Kick-Ass inspires other
vigilantes and they join forces to fight crime.
This film looks very hilarious, and extremely violent. Parents be warned, this is rated R, and isn't meant for children.
