A "Kick Ass" Preview

Fanboys and other assorted nerds are eagerly awaiting Kick Ass, the film adaptation of the Marvel Comics series from writer Mark Millar (Wanted) and John Romita, Jr.  The excellent movie box office news site is previewing 2010's big movies and have done one for Kick Ass.

The film is directed by Matthew Vaughn and written by Jane Goldman and Vaughn, who previously adapted Neil Gaiman and Charles Vess' illustrated novel, Stardust, for the screen.  I liked Stardust.  It looks like a British fantasy film that might have come out of the 1980s, and I think fans of fantasy films that are more like LadyHawke and less like Lord of the Rings will really enjoy it.

Concerning Kick Ass, I guess Nicolas Cage being in it means that it will either be a hit or a disaster.  There will be no middle ground.
