Today saw the release of a brand new red band trailer for Jeff Wadlow’s sequel, Kick-Ass 2, and blimey there is a ton of new footage to enjoy here! Naturally, being a red band trailer, this is filled with foul language and ultra violence, but that is what we have come here to see, and this trailer delivers buckets of it.
What we also get from this trailer, is a superb look at just how well the action has been put together, and how much bigger the film feels in general. There are some really cool stunts on display here, and some very funny moments. Jim Carrey as Colonel Stars and Stripes continues to make me laugh just by simply being on the screen. Kick-Ass 2 is going to be awesome!
Kick-Ass 2 is directed by Jeff Wadlow and written by Wadlow, Mark Millar and John S. Romita Jr. Matthew Vaughn returns to produce. The cast see’s Chloe Grace Moretz, Christopher Mintz-Plasse and Aaron Taylor-Johnson return, and they will be joined by Jim Carrey, Lyndsy Fonseca, John Leguizamo, Donald Faison, Morris Chestnut, Yancy Butler, Clark Duke and Lindy Booth.
Kick-Ass 2 arrives in UK cinemas August 14th.
Kick-Ass, Hit Girl and Red Mist return for the follow-up to 2010’s irreverent global hit: Kick-Ass 2. After Kick-Ass’ (Aaron Taylor-Johnson) insane bravery inspires a new wave of self-made masked crusaders, led by the badass Colonel Stars and Stripes (Jim Carrey), our hero joins them on patrol. When these amateur superheroes are hunted down by Red Mist (Christopher Mintz-Plasse)—reborn as The Mother Fucker—only the blade-wielding Hit Girl (Chloe Grace Moretz) can prevent their annihilation. When we last saw junior assassin Hit Girl and young vigilante Kick-Ass, they were trying to live as normal teenagers Mindy and Dave. With graduation looming and uncertain what to do, Dave decides to start the world’s first superhero team with Mindy.
Unfortunately, when Mindy is busted for sneaking out as Hit Girl, she’s forced to retire—leaving her to navigate the terrifying world of high-school mean girls on her own. With no one left to turn to, Dave joins forces with Justice Forever, run by a born-again ex-mobster named Colonel Stars and Stripes. Just as they start to make a real difference on the streets, the world’s first super villain, The Mother Fucker, assembles his own evil league and puts a plan in motion to make Kick-Ass and Hit Girl pay for what they did to his dad. But there’s only one problem with his scheme: If you mess with one member of Justice Forever, you mess with them all.
