On January 28, the latest issue of Empire goes on sale with a special, fold-out, Kick-Ass cover to go with it.
You can preview what the cover looks like below, but to see the rest in glorious hi-res you’ll have to head over to EmpireOnline.com.
If this movie is anything like what the trailers and clips have made it out to be, it’s sure to be an amazing, action-packed festival of superhero subversion and crazy cursing — the latter courtesy of the adorable Hit Girl.
For those of you just hearing about Kick-Ass, here’s the official synopsis and trailer to refresh your memory.
Kick-Ass tells the story of average teenager Dave Lizewski (Aaron Johnson), a comic-book fanboy who decides to take his obsession as inspiration to become a real-life superhero. As any good superhero would, he chooses a new name — Kick-Ass — assembles a suit and mask to wear, and gets to work fighting crime. There’s only one problem standing in his way: Kick-Ass has absolutely no superpowers.
His life is forever changed as he inspires a subculture of copy cats, is hunted by assorted violent and unpleasant characters, and meets up with the costumed adventurer Red Mist (Christopher Mintz-Plasse) and a pair of crazed vigilantes, including an 11-year-old sword-wielding dynamo, Hit Girl (Chloë Moretz) and her father, Big Daddy (Nicolas Cage).
Kick-Ass hits theaters April 16, 2010.
