Universal just finished up the Comic-Con panel for Kick-Ass 2, and while this is certainly the place for exclusive footage, in this case, the Internet wins. A new four-minute trailer just debuted here in Hall H, but director Jeff Wadlow told the crowd that the red band trailer arriving online would be a much more violent, and profanity laden trailer, and he wasn't lying. There's some hard hits, blood splashing and plenty of naughty words from Aaron-Taylor Johnson, Chloe Grace Moretz and Jim Carrey, plus some cool moments for John Leguizamo, Donald Faison and more new cast members. This is going to be wild.

"Don't you want to belong to something bigger than you?" Universal has unveiled a new international trailer today for Kick-Ass 2, the sequel to Matthew Vaughn's adaptation of the comic book series Kick Ass. A few weeks ago we featured the very first red band trailer for this follow-up, reuniting Kick-Ass, played by Aaron Taylor-Johnson, with Hit-Girl, played by Chloe Moretz, and some newcomers like Jim Carrey. This trailer, which is under 2 mins, focuses almost entirely on Hit-Girl and her life at high school now that she's growing up. I love the direction they're taking this sequel, and honestly I'm excited to see it. Try to have fun!

"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.

"This is what she made us." We're just a few weeks away from the highly anticipated release of the newest James Bond installment in the form of Sam Mendes' Skyfall starring Daniel Craig, and one last full length trailer has shown up. There's a lot of stuff we've already seen, but there's also some great quick new lines from Javier Bardem as the villain and also teases of some exciting action sequences. The buzz on this film after it screened last week has been off the charts and some are saying it might be the best James Bond film ever, potentially even deserving of a Best Picture nomination. Is it November 9th yet? Watch below!

Even more Kick-Ass! Although, I think this is becoming another case of seeing too much footage too close to release. Lionsgate has debuted yet another new red band trailer for Matthew Vaughn's Kick-Ass today (via MySpace) making this the third separate red band trailer they've released total and seventh Kick-Ass video we've featured since last year. I'm actually not even going to watch this trailer, even though I'm sure it's badass, just because I don't want to see too much from this before I see it at SXSW next month. It'll be in theaters in two months so bear with and you'll be enjoying this in no time! Check it out below if you want.

"With no power comes no responsibility." Another new trailer for Kick-Ass, damn, how many is that now, like five? MSN has debuted a brand new red band international trailer for Matthew Vaughn's Kick-Ass that may just so happen to be the best trailer yet! This one starts from the top again, with the opening scene, and goes through all the introductions, so if you don't know much about Kick-Ass (or haven't read the comics) you can start here and get a taste of the bloody violence in this glorious new comic book movie. Thankfully this is arriving in theaters in just two more months - can't wait. "Being a superhero is bad for your health!"

Lionsgate debuted a second full-length theatrical trailer for Matthew Vaughn's Kick-Ass today. At this point, after two other previous trailers, I don't think this movie needs an introduction. And I don't think I need to tell you that this looks totally frickin' awesome! If you're not convinced to go see this after watching this trailer, then there really is no hope for you! You should be able to tell by now what's going on. Anyway, I've said enough about the movie, it's time to fire this bad boy up & enjoy. I really do think this is some of the best marketing Lionsgate has ever done and I can't wait for Kick-Ass to hit theaters! Fire it up below.

Now this is why I love Hit-Girl so damn much! Although the movie Kick-Ass is about the kid named Dave Lizewski who becomes the costumed hero known as Kick-Ass, he meets some other characters along the way (including Christopher Mintz-Plasse who plays a hero called Red Mist). However, one of the craziest people he comes across is an 12-year-old girl named Hit-Girl played by Chloe Moretz. And yes, she kicks serious ass. If you've been wondering why this is going to be Rated-R, then here's a few reasons. Matthew Vaughn does not cut back on bit on the violence and it's gruesome but completely awesome. Watch this right now!

Those sneaky French! Last week, Lionsgate debuted the teaser trailer for Matthew Vaughn's Kick-Ass. Because of an accidental early leak, that teaser kind of got lost in the mix with the Clash of the Titans trailer (which was also released the same day). So, in an effort to give this great trailer some time in the spotlight on its own, and also because it's pretty cool to see with commentary, I'm featuring this new version of the same teaser that now includes a bit of commentary from Matthew Vaughn. Premiere in France called up Vaughn and got him to talk about the movie and included it over the top of this trailer. So check it out!

Wow, did not expect to see this until Friday! The first teaser trailer for Matthew Vaughn's Kick-Ass, his beautifully violent adaptation of Mark Millar's comic series, has arrived online officially via MySpace. Holy f*ckin' hell this looks so awesome. I've been a fan of the comic series since it hit and I've been excited for this movie since it was first announced. I knew that Vaughn would deliver! I think this may revive Nic Cage's career and it will definitely put both Aaron Johnson (as Kick-Ass) and Chloe Moretz (as Hit Girl) on the map. If you've seen nothing from this movie yet, you're in for one hell of a treat, I promise you that. Enjoy!

"She will destroy you!" Don't mess with Hailee. We've been curious about this new movie from Fanboys director Kyle Newman, called Barely Lethal, and now we have a first look by way of a trailer. Hailee Steinfeld stars as Megan Walsh in a Hit-Girl-esque story about a young trained assassin who tries to return to normal life (and high school) and fit in. She's joined in the cast by Jessica Alba, Samuel L. Jackson, Dan Fogler, Jaime King, Sophie Turner, and Thomas Mann from Me and Earl and the Dying Girl. I hate to say it, but this looks a bit cliche though I'm not sure if we should blame the trailer editing or what. I'm still curious to see it but not sure how it's different than the Hit-Girl story we got in the Kick-Ass movies.

"What a shame we both had to grow up." After the last explosive and action-packed red band trailer for Mathew Vaughn's fun comic book spy thriller adaptation Kingsman: The Secret Service, a new international trailer has arrived. But this one aims to lay out the story of the film a little more clearly, perhaps for those who may not be familiar with all the tropes of spy films and whatnot. Aside from the obvious James Bond references between Colin Firth and the villain played by Samuel L. Jackson, there's plenty of other pop culture riffs here as well, just adding to the full blown entertainment on display.

"I look like I give a fuck?" There's a part of me that's worried that Kingsman: The Secret Service is going to bomb when it hits theaters in February next year, but the latest red band trailer shows off a fun spy flick that looks so crazy that it just might work. Samuel L. Jackson is doing his best impression of himself as a James Bond villain with a lisp, Mark Strong is having some fun and Colin Firth looks like a real ass-kicker. And if this trailer is any indicator, newcomer Taron Egerton may have a bright future as a young big screen star. And don't forget, Mark Hamill has a bit part in this movie too. Watch below now!

"Give me a farfetched theatrical plot any day." From across the pond, a new trailer has emerged for Matthew Vaughn's big, fun spy action thriller Kingsman: The Secret Service, and fans of spies movies of all kinds are going to find something to love. It's like James Bond meets kick ass with all sorts of meta talk of other spies and their movies between Colin Firth and villain Samuel L. Jackson. Plus, the action looks to be pretty insane, especially with that henchwoman with giant blades for legs (she's also featured on four new character posters). This one also continues the trend of featuring adorable dogs (specifically a pug) in action thrillers, if that's something you love. It certainly looks like it'll be outlandish fun. Watch below!
