Is anyone else totally stoked to see Hit Girl tear up bad guys left and right while Kick-Ass just kind of stands there and watches? We are and we won't have to wait much longer because the sequel is going into production in about 2 months!
Mark Millar, one of the authors of the graphic novels, sat down for an interview recently and revealed:
Brad Bird (The Incredibles) is directing the new Mission: Impossible 4 movie, and we couldn't be more excited to see what he's going to do with it. We've seen the kickass trailer, and above we have the new poster for it!
As we reported back in November, residents of Seattle, WA may sleep a little more soundly at night, because there are reportedly not just one, but a TEAM of super heroes, called The Rain City Superhero Movement, patrolling the streets and fighting crime!
Check out this clip (above) of one such man, known as Phoenix Jones, actually opening up to the press about his crime-fighting!
"When I walk into a neighborhood, criminals leave because they see the suit. I symbolize that the average person doesn't have to walk around and see bad things and do nothing. I don't condone people walking around on the street with masks. Everyone on my team either has a military background or a mixed martial arts background, and we're well aware of what it costs to do what we do."
Oh man. Check out that costume.
That's some serious commitment!
We just hope that these guys actually do know what they're doing, and don't get in over their heads!
Amazing! Who needs Kick Ass? We have real life superheroes!
Check out this amazing surveillance footage of a comic book store owner, dressed as Spider-Man for International Free Comic Day, apprehend a villainous thief attempting to steal a $150 comic!
The hero, Michael Baulderstone, says:
"We had about 40 people dressed up as their favorite superheroes to celebrate International Free Comic Day, so he didn't have much of a choice but to hand the X-Men omnibus back after a little bit of a scuffle."
Why are people so excited for this movie?? The first one didn't hold a candle to the original series!!
Pre-sale tickets for the May 27th premiere of Sex and the City 2 are already on sale - six weeks in advance! And it's already out-selling movies playing in theaters NOW!
According to Fandango spokesman Harry Medved:
"It was nearly 20% of our daily sales when it first went on sale, outpacing (new box office champ) 'Kick-Ass,' which was 17% of sales. We saw surprisingly strong advance ticket sales on the first one, with many female moviegoers buying tickets en masse, planning screening parties for groups of friends who were flying in from out of town."
Regal Theater's Marketing Head Dick Westerling agrees:
"Women across the country are anxious to plan events and activities related to their evening out to see the film, and they want confirmation that they have tickets. Based on our experience with the first film, this can become quite an elaborate and fun-filled evening. Aside from purchasing tickets to see the movie, they are already reserving limousines and making restaurant reservations."
We suppose we should never underestimate the middle aged housewive's undying need to feel fabulous! It's half the reason Twilight does so well, too.
