It’s not going to beat the Red Band Hit-Girl trailer (and let’s be honest: not much can), but this new green band trailer for Matthew Vaughn’s Kick-Ass gets the job done. It gives you a greater overview of the plot, the characters (with Aaron Johnson, Christopher Mintz-Plasse, Chloe Moretz, Mark Strong, and Nicolas Cage in the lead roles), the action, and the comedy. So what if it leaves out the swearing and gratuitous violence? That’s what MPAA ratings are for: to make kids under the age of seventeen desperately want to see this movie even more. Hopefully, we’ll get another red band trailer in the near future, but I’m happy to report any and all Kick-Ass news.
Hit the jump to check out the trailer and synopsis. Kick-Ass hits theaters on April 16th.

For those just tuning in, here’s a brief synopsis for Kick-Ass:
Dave Lizewski, a comic-book fanboy, decides to take his obsession as inspiration to become a real-life superhero. As any good superhero would, he chooses a new name — Kick-Ass — assembles a suit and mask to wear, and gets to work fighting crime. There’s only one problem standing in his way: Kick-Ass has absolutely no superpowers. His life is forever changed as he inspires a subculture of copy cats, is hunted by assorted violent and unpleasant characters, and meets up with a pair of crazed vigilantes, including an 11-year-old sword-wielding dynamo, Hit Girl and her father, Big Daddy.
