Kick Ass 2 Red Band

"If they're wearing a mask, they're getting detained!" Universal has unveiled the first crazy, kick ass (yes I know) trailer for Kick Ass 2, the sequel to the comic book adaptation from a few years ago. Picking up where things left off, Kick Ass, played again by Aaron Taylor-Johnson has teamed up with Hit Girl, again Chloe Moretz, and are growing their team with the likes of Jim Carrey, too. Then there's Christopher Mintz-Plasse, who takes on the identity of Mother Fucker, and is building his army of super-villains. Yea, this looks kind of awesome. As a big fan of the absurdity of the first movie, I'm crazy excited to see this, too.

Here's the first red band trailer for Jeff Wadlow's Kick-Ass 2, originally from MTV:

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 Moretz) can prevent their annihilation. Donalid Faison, John Leguizamo, Morris Chestnut and more also star in Kick-Ass 2, the comic book sequel based on the series by Mark Millar. The sequel is slated to hit theaters a bit later this summer on August 16th. Cool?

    • jah p
      I totally agree, Carrey looks to steal the show in this....
  • jdhdavidson
    Please please please tell me theres a version that plays in the UK...
    Is that Toronto? Looks better than the first. I am glad they got everyone back!
    • Matthew
      Yup it's my city again
  • mike
    I have refused to watch any movie with Jim Carrey in it for the last 15 years because I can't stand him but I I'm going to see this film.
    • Broseph Brosullini
      So you missed out on Eternal sunshine?
      • JL
        And Truman Show, and Man on the Moon?
        • Ryan Clemens
          All great movies Mike, watch em!
  • I didn't love the way they adapted Kick-Ass (particularly the romantic angle) and I half liked that comic. I actively dislike the Kick-Ass 2 comic and this trailer doesn't seem like it's going to be better.
    • Ravek021
      Then this is clearly not your thing so I would like to politely ask if you would not follow the news for it and wait for something else that you may like. This seems to happen a lot with things. I understand that the initial appeal of the comic may have drawn you into this but the writers of this material are clearly not looking at you, and at this point following the trailers and news and actively commenting and participating in it can only lead to controversy with no resulting point There are other comics, and there are other movies. If you see this movie and don't like it then guess what, it is entirely your own fault... that being said, I think that this looks awesome, I think Jim Carrey is bringing a seriousness to this the way he did The Mask, and for anyone reading and liking the comics, if you saw as many hints at plot points as I saw, then holy crap this movie may be intense.

        lol - don't get me wrong... I love The Mask... but there was seriousness in it? Regardless, I love Carey & his work, serious or not, I believe he's super talented.
      • If only I could have my RSS feeder auto ignore news on Kick Ass. I'm reserving judgement to see what gets changed in the story. *SPOILERS SPOILERS SPOILERS SPOILERS SPOILERS SPOILERS SPOILERS SPOILERS SPOILERS SPOILERS SPOILERS SPOILERS* specifically if the really disgustingly lazy way Millar made Kick Ass hate the motherfucker is excised or not. /spoilers If that one plot point gets changed, I'll see it.
      • dislikemycomment
        But it's fun to be a buzzkill and comment how much things suck when everybody else is foaming at the mouth about how "awesome" this juvenile thing is. Kick Ass could have been so much more and they decided to go with the "let's make it cool and hip for the kids " approach. It's a cartoon.
  • Sorry for the confusion, the trailer has been fixed.
  • $45974493
    Jim Carrey looks to be awesome in this.
  • Looks fantastic!
  • I love that Jim Carey is not playing Jim Carey.
    • bozo connors
      It is nice to see him get out of his shell now and then for sure.
    • bat0u
      definitely agree. kinda like how nic cage was typical nic cage in the 1st. =D
  • I must say that i will see this movie because of Jim Carrey
  • Jim
    Still looks stupid.
  • The Mechanic
    This looks great. The balls biting scene is just bad ass to the bone.
  • Xerxexx
    Carrey looks and sounds great. Can't wait to see this!
  • Cody W
    Lol whoa, wasnt expecting that voice when Carey opened his mouth lol. I was a huge fan of the first one this looks like more of the same IM IN!
  • SkylerB619
    Wow. Aaron got biiiiiiig.
  • JimmyBoy
    hahah lol, firstshowing messed up nd put the first kickass trailer before....then deleted all the comments referred to it. LOvve Jim Carrey in this tho. awsome
  • Tester
    Sleigh Bells is becoming the new Nine Inch Nails of movie trailers... Any trailer with their music = instant kick ass
  • Nielsen700
    This looks awesome, with the exception of the awful green screen shot near the end.
  • dislikemycomment
    And it's a stupid cartoon.
  • jah p

  • Moviefan2247
    Order Hell YEA with a side of epicness!
  • rulez
    "HAHAHA, you have a dog on your balls"...BITCHIN!!!!
  • Buttass
    I liked the first Kick-Ass comic and movie a lot, but I stopped reading about halfway through Kick-Ass 2 because it started to feel like Mark Millar was writing in a disturbing amount of violence just for the hell of it. Not the cool kind either, just bad people doing bad things, shooting kids and shit. That said, I'm pretty excited for this movie. Maybe I'll head back and read it through all at once, it might go down easier.
    • drafunt
      so will the movie follow the comic version accurately?
  • John Doe
    I Fuckin HATE this shitty MTV video player! Please, Alex, never used it again! Having said that, the trailer was fuckin awesome!
  • $126191
    It's like a 12-year-old's version of a comic book movie. Nice to see Carrey trying something different though. And Chloë Grace Moretz... I'm starting to feel dirty.
  • Akirakorn
    I know I'm late here, but I am the only one saddened he dropped the name Red Mist (which is actually cool), and went with the sad Mother Fucker. It's just lame.
  • Barbara Ruiz
    jim carrey...Chloe...I'm hype for this
  • I just don't want the dog to get hurt.
  • I love how Kick-Ass 2 has two songs from Sleigh Bells in the trailer, "Infinity Guitars" and "Crush" were also great choices since it was one song from their first album and one from their second. I loved the first movie, but it is kinda weird to see the girl being almost grown up now...and Jim Carrey I assume will either be awesome or terrible, with almost zero chance for it being middle ground. Here's hoping he's great.
