Watch: First Crazy Ass Red Band 'Kick-Ass 2' Trailer Finally Debuts!
"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?
