Does Kick-Ass Kick Ass?

One movie I’ve been counting down the days until it’s release is the big screen adaptation of Mark Millar and John Romita Jr.’s Kick-Ass.  The story follows a “real life” kid as he decides to emulate the characters he loves in comic books.  It’s a hero for the internet age as the series asks “what if super heroes really existed?” has recently released the first teaser posters for the movie which sees release April 16, 2010.  Small touches like the comics character’s name instead of the actors is a small hint at the  understanding of the material that makes me giddy and count down the days until it’s release.

The theatrical trailer releases Novermber 14th on Myspace according to the movie website,  The early buzz is this movie is going to live up to it’s title and rock if websites and reviews like here, here, and here are any indication.
