First Red Band Trailer for KICK-ASS 2 Starring Aaron Johnson, Chloe Moretz, Christopher Mintz-Plasse, & Jim Carrey – Plus New Poster & Images
The first red band trailer for the much anticipated Jeff Waldow directed sequel, Kick-Ass 2, has been released online. The film revolves around legendary self-proclaimed superhero Kick-Ass (Aaron Taylor-Johnson) and how his efforts have inspired ordinary people to suit up and try to become superheroes as well. After the death of his father, Red Mist (Christopher Mintz-Plasse), now known as “The Motherfucker,” sets out to amass his own army to become the world’s first super villain. The trailer shows off some laughs with great action and performances we’ll see in the film – I’m particularly looking forward to Jim Carrey as Colonel Stars and Stripes – and a nice Joker reference (“Wait ’til they get a load of me”). Along with the trailer are six new images and a new poster. Hit the jump to take a look at the trailer.
Kick-Ass 2 is directed by Jeff Wadlow – starring Aaron Taylor-Johnson, Chloe Moretz, Jim Carrey, Christopher Mintz-Plasse, Donald Faison, John Leguizamo and hits theaters August 16th, 2013.
“Colonel Stars and Stripes…Reporting for duty.”
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 (Chloë 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.
