Newcomer Aaron Johnson and Superbad’s Christopher Mintz-Plasse are kick ass as wannabe superheroes with no powers in the movie KICK ASS . The comic book film adaptation showcases the many talents of these young actors and CineMovie sat down with them in a one-on-one interview in Miami.
Our own kick ass reporter Zay Zay bonded with Aaron and Christopher and got answers to why you should see KICK ASS, Nicolas Cage’s Adam West impersonation of TV’s Batman, and Christopher’s blossoming from McLovin to Red Mist super hero.
KICK ASS is in movie theaters April 16.
More on the film:
“How come nobody’s ever tried to be a superhero?” When Dave Lizewski – ordinary New York teenager and rabid comic-book geek dons a green-and-yellow internet-bought wetsuit to become the no-nonsense vigilante, Kick-Ass, he soon finds an answer to his own question: because it hurts.
But, overcoming all the odds, the eager yet inexperienced Dave quickly becomes a phenomenon, capturing the imagination of the public. However, he’s not the only superhero out there – the fearless and highly-trained father-daughter crime-fighting duo, Big Daddy and Hit Girl have been slowly but surely taking down the criminal empire of local Mafioso, Frank D’Amico. And, as Kick-Ass gets drawn into their no-holds-barred world of bullets and bloodletting with Frank’s son, Chris, now reborn as Kick-Ass’s arch-nemesis, Red Mist – the stage is set for a final showdown between the forces of good and evil – in which the DIY hero will have to live up to his name. Or die trying…
