Kick-Ass / Iron Man 2
Hollywood’s love affair with comic books continues apace in April with two very different releases. First is Matthew Vaughn’s (Stardust) adaptation of Mark Wanted Millar’s little known and very adult-rated graphic delight Kick-Ass. Made outside the studio system with money secured solely through private investments so Millar’s vision could be brought to life without compromise, if the quality of the comic book and the scores from the test screenings are anything to judge by this is going to be something very fresh and exciting that puts other adaptations (Watchmen) to shame. Sneaking in on the last day of the month is the first proper “blockbuster” of next summer: Marvel’s sequel to their phenomenally successful instalment of the Iron Man adventures. The good news about part two is that the talent that brought Tony Stark’s turbulent life from panel-to-celluloid the first time around (Jon Favreau, Robert Downey Jr) are returning for more. The great news is that they are joined by the equally talented Sam Moon Rockwell and Mickey Wrestler Rourke in front of and Justin Tropic Thunder Theroux behind the lens. Expect bigger and better and even more box office ker-ching.
