I love comic books, but I’m not a comic book guy. So when movies like 300, SIN CITY, THE CROW, WATCHMEN and countless others get turned into movies, it’s exciting for me because I feel like I’m discovering a whole new world. Of course, the worlds were created years ago and for many people, it’s something they already love. So the latest to get the movie treatment is Mark Millar’s KICK-ASS in which a few regular people take it upon themselves to be “superheroes”. I’m not familiar with the story (other than what I can find with a simple search), but the trailer looks pretty good and I’m definitely excited to see what director Matthew Vaughn (STARDUST, LAYER CAKE does with it. The film stars Nicolas Cage, Christopher Mintz-Plasse, Aaron Johnson, Mark Strong and Chloe Moretz.
