     March 27, 2013


If you felt this morning’s version of the Kick-Ass 2 trailer featuring Hit-Girl (Chloe Grace Moretz) was a bit light on blood and profanity, then this new red-band version of the same trailer might be more your speed.  It’s a funnier cut than the earlier one precisely because cute girls saying vulgar things and beating the bloody snot out of people is just downright hilarious.

Hit the jump to check out the trailer and new character poster for Moretz’s Hit-Girl.  The movie co-stars Aaron Taylor-JohnsonClark DukeDonald FaisonJohn Leguizamo, Jim Carrey and Olga Kurkulina.  Kick-Ass 2 opens August 16th.

Here’s the official synopsis for Kick-Ass 2:

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 F%&*^r—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 F%&*^r, 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.

    There’s going to be a Kick-Ass 3 comic this summer. So I hope this sequel does well enough that we’ll kick a third movie to round out a trilogy.

  • That’s Just Crood, Sir.

    Honestly, does this really look good to you guys? Jim Carrey looks ridiculous (not in a fun way). And, the movie just looks stale. As with the first one, we really wanted to like it. But, it was just awful. I know all of you are gonna be like, ‘No way! Kick Ass was the best blah, blah, blah…’ . But, it wasn’t. It was just a sad, sorry rip-off of better films. Sorry. Just my humble opinion.

      Your humble opinion SUCKS ASS. Kick-Ass had more style, energy, epicness and heart than 90% of big budget superhero movies. It also featured a great cast with incredible turns by Nicolas Cage and Chloe Moretz.

      • Sam

        I completely agree with you J..the amount of spunk and intelligence in the movie was unmatched in most of the superhero movies!!!

  • That’s Just Crood, Sir

    It didn’t have spunk, style or energy. It was a direct rip-off of Spider-Man (down to the neighborhood & next door hot chick). It was utterly unbelievable, when it portrayed itself as a ‘realistic’ vigilante story (no one would allow a scuba suited dude into a drug den, a bullet to the bulletproof vest on a young girl would crush her ribcage, a dude gets some magical ability to feel no pain, etc.). And, yes, movies always require suspension of disbelief. But, it has to be believable in the world if creates. It wasn’t good on any level. My wife felt exact same. And, we WANTED to like it. We did. But, we’re not blind. It’s holier than thou attitude towards comic book films was palpable & pathetic (given it’s atrocious cribbage & plagiarism of better films). But, whatever, it paid lip service to geeks. So, they ate it with a spoon. You can’t get into a serious discussion with KickAss fans. They can’t answer for the faults. So, they try to shout you down. But, my wife & I aren’t the only ones who feel this way. Had many critical discussions of the film with level headed people & we always tend to agree. I’m not trying to diss your favorite movie. Enjoy it. I’m giving my 2 cents.
