Empire magazine has revealed the Red Band trailer for writer/director Matthew Vaughn's Kick-Ass, which stars Nicolas Cage, Aaron Johnson, Christopher Mintz-Plasse and Chloe Moretz at Hit Girl. Check out the trailer below!

Opening April 16th, Lionsgate's comic book adaptation tells the story of average teenager Dave Lizewski (Johnson), a comic-book fanboy who decides to take his obsession as inspiration to become a real-life superhero. As any good superhero would, he chooses a new name -- Kick-Ass -- assembles a suit and mask to wear, and gets to work fighting crime. There's only one problem standing in his way: Kick-Ass has absolutely no superpowers.

His life is forever changed as he inspires a subculture of copy cats, is hunted by assorted violent and unpleasant characters, and meets up with a pair of crazed vigilantes, including an 11-year-old sword-wielding dynamo, Hit Girl (Moretz) and her father, Big Daddy (Cage).
