Kick-Ass outdoor bannerKick-Ass is one of the most-anticipated movies in a long time; the promising mixture of a unique superhero story and an abundance of gore and profanity is music to the ears of fanboys everywhere.

The movie is based on the popular comics by Mark Millar and John S. Romita Jr., and it is directed by Matthew Vaughn. Even more appealing is the story of what Vaughn has gone through to get this movie made after studios bolted at the thought of a young girl swearing like a trucker and slaughtering bad guys left and right (Read: Behold The Wrath Of Hit-Girl: Watch The ‘Kick-Ass’ Red Band Trailer NOW!). But after all the effort was put in, and there was footage to be seen, studios battled to acquire it with Lionsgate eventually winning the rights to the film, which was also written by Vaughn and Jane Goldman.

Kick-Ass is finally about to make its debut at the SXSW film festival, and in celebration of its unveiling, Lionsgate has released a collection of four new posters being used together as one massive outdoor banner.

Head on over to the other side to read the new synopsis and see the four posters, as well as an image of them all combined as the giant outdoor street banner.

F*ck Crime! Kick-Ass.

I’ve been a Kick-Ass fan since before the first issue of the comic hit stands way back in February of 2008. The first viral marketing campaign for the comic was brilliant and it had me excited for the book even before it debuted. The dream team of Mark Millar and John Romita Jr. didn’t hurt either. The awesomeness of the comic lead to a movie deal and the rest (we will soon see) is going to be history. Whether the movie catches on with mainstream audiences is yet to be seen, but it sure looks like it was a fun film to make.

Those fine fellows over at Titan Books sent us a copy of Kick-Ass Creating the Comic, Making the Movie and I couldn’t be more thrilled. At first glance you might dismiss the book as being little more than a lame movie-tie in whose sole purpose is to pilfer your wallets, but you’d be sorely mistaken. The book is so much more than that. It does a nice job of satisfying fans of all sorts. The comic fans will enjoy the insights from creators Millar and Romita and the film crowd will be salivating over on-set photos and film stills.
