UGO covers NYC Premiere of Kick-Ass

Conor and I got to attend the NYC premiere of Kick-Ass earlier this week, and while you have to wait for the movie to come out for our review podcast, you can get a taste of how I liked the movie in here. The event, sponsored by Lion's Gate and UGO was a ton of fun, and featured a Q&A with Mark Millar and John Romita Jr. afterwards.  Anyone who was anyone in low rent New York pop culture media was there, and I can personally attest that neither Joe Quesada nor Tom Brevoort got reserved seating.

I think there might be some spoilers, so if you're super conscious about that, be warned.  For more, check out Ron's spoiler-free-esque review.

    My comic shop guy had a ton of Kick Ass swag today (from a screening last night?) and he was giving it all away for free. I walked away with a Kick Ass ball cap.  

  2. I have no idea what Millar said. But JRJR looks teh sexy

    I think I might have bought a mattress from JRJR once.

    Hopefully I"m going to get Kick-Ass hardcover this weekend.

  7. @cromulent: I offer my services as Scottish-to-English translator, as I have often had to do in the past.

     Also, does that two-second clip of Josh qualify as a teaser trailer for the iFanboy review?
