Matthew Vaughn To Mentor ‘X-Men: First Class’
Monday, May 3 by

This is Matthew Vaughn's Johnny Vaughan's excited face.X-Men: First Class is a dream project for most up-and-coming directors working nowadays. Matthew Vaughn was in talks to take the gig but those talks broke down, causing Hollywood's hottest to pig pile on the property. But now it turns out their writhing and hair-pulling was all for naught, as Matthew Vaughn has sauntered in and taken back the crown. Too bad too. Samuel Bayer ended up getting a pretty bad finger jammy in the melee.The man who McLovin described as a "dick" is in final talks to close the deal. If this all comes together, expect to see Ice Man bang out the chalkboard erasers later this fall. (Deadline)

Kick-Ass Set Visit: McLovin vs. Vaughn. FIGHT! FIGHT! FIGHT!
Tuesday, February 16 by

Empire has some behind-the-scenes footage from their Kick-Ass set visit. It's equal parts corny intro, needless information, British humor, tea with Kit-Kats in it, Christopher Mintz-Plasse talking about his genitals, and an awesome on-set blow-up between director and star. MATTHEW VAUGHN (in regards to Mintz-Plasse): Do you think this boy will ever not be known as McLovin? CHRISTOPHER MINTZ-PLASSE: Do I? Yeah. MATTHEW VAUGHN (laughing him off): Good answer. CHRISTOPHER MINTZ-PLASSE: You're a dick! Oh, McLovin. Looks like we've got another Gary Coleman on our hands. (via Empire) CHECK OUT THE PISS-TAKING AFTER THE JUMP…

‘Kick-Ass’ Red Band Hit Girl Trailer
Tuesday, December 22 by

 The red band trailer for Kick-Ass certainly lives up to its name by showcasing Chloe Moretz's foul-mouthed Hit Girl as she kicks every ass in sight. More specifically, she shoots a dude through his cheek, cuts off a Malcom Jamal Warner lookalike's leg, and drops the "C" bomb on a room full of thugs. Now I'm all kinds of homesick. Seeing such a young girl growl the "C" word really makes me miss my nieces.  

‘Kick-Ass’ Teaser Promises Some Serious Kickings Of Ass
Wednesday, November 11 by

  If you're having trouble deciding what to dress up as this Thanksgiving, the Kick-Ass teaser has debuted just in time with ample options. The movie follows Aaron Johnson's Kick-Ass, a DIY hero who lacks superpowers but carries two big sticks. Also glimpsed in this trailer are Chloe Moretz as Hit Girl, Nicolas Cage as Big Daddy, and McLovin as Red Mist. I'm hoping this movie is as good as everyone purports it to be. As of right now, I am worried that we've got another Zombieland on our hands.Check out the trailer after the jump.
