We've got a few more weeks before 'Kick-Ass' hits theaters, but you should prepare yourself for the inevitable (and well-deserved) headlines: 'Kick-Ass' Kicks Ass.

Helmed by Matthew Vaughn ('Layer Cake'), the movie follows a comic book geek named Dave Lizewski who decides to become a real-life superhero, going by the name Kick-Ass. Brit Aaron Johnson fills the title role's green neoprene, with Christopher Mintz-Plasse joining the ranks as Red Mist, Nicolas Cage as the caped Big Daddy and Chloë Moretz as his butt-kicking daughter Hit Girl.

Based on the Marvel Comic by Mark Millar and John Romita, Jr., the movie brings laughs, heart and a ton of bloody violence to the big screen. Moviefone sat down with Johnson and Mintz-Plasse after the movie's sold-out SXSW premiere -- watch the interview to find out more about training for butt-kicking and which fellow 'Kick-Ass'-er they'd want to trade places with.
