Universal have released a brand new red-band featurette for their upcoming sequel, Kick-Ass 2, and while this is most certainly NSFW, it is a lot of fun. With the film being released in UK cinemas next Wednesday, and US cinemas on Friday August 16th, this is likely to be the final piece of promotional activity for the film, so enjoy it.
Jim Carrey already gave the film a massive publicity boost recently when he condoned the violence in the film, and there is a good chance that the sequel just might prove more successful than the first film. The new red-band featurette has plenty of new footage, lots of comedy, violence and tons of insights into the film and its characters, so check it out below.
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 2013.
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.
