STARRING Aaron Johnson, Chloë Moretz, Nicolas Cage, Mark Strong
WRITTEN BY Jane Goldman, Matthew Vaughn
DIRECTED BY Matthew Vaughn

An average teen (Aaron Johnson) reinvents himself as a costumed hero. Things turn complicated when he gets caught up with a Mob boss’ son (Superbad‘s Christopher Mintz-Plasse), not to mention a vigilante (Nicolas Cage) and his lethal daughter (Chloë Moretz). Based on a cult comic book by Mark Millar, who also created Wanted, another puckishly ultraviolent actioner. Wait till you see Nicolas Cage in a Bat-suit.
