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!

"We are an independent international intelligence agency operating at the highest level of discretion." After getting caught up in the world of espionage in Tinker Tailor Solider Spy, the charming Colin Firth is becoming a full fledged action hero in Kingsman: The Secret Service, the comic book adaptation from Kick-Ass and X-Men: First Class director Matthew Vaughn. This basically looks like an over-the-top version of James Bond, but we wouldn't expect anything less from a comic book written by Mark Millar. Still, it's made all the more interesting with Firth in the lead, even with the kid sidekick involved. Watch!

Though it doesn't really seem like James Franco would be much of an adversary for Jason Statham, the thriller Homefront has pitted them against each other. Franco is a southern drug dealer who doesn't like an undercover cop trying to start a new life on his turf, and in this new red band trailer, he shows that he means business by busting the knee caps of some new meth dealers who are invading his territory. Then we get into normal trailer territory with some kick-ass action and some profanity thrown around for good measure. We're still not sure if this will be good, but maybe Franco and Statham will make it fun. Watch!

"Your life belongs to me." "Then take it... if you can!" Whoa! I'm the odd one out here, but I think this looks awesome, and the more we see for it, the better it gets. Universal has debuted another short UK trailer for Carl Rinsch's 47 Ronin, starring Keanu Reeves as an 18th century warrior who bands together with other samurais to avenge their master. We've already seen a couple of different trailers for this so far, but I love the way this one flows. The music, the scenes they show, the way it's edited, everything works well and it's a short but strong trailer for this movie. Though all the creatures look a bit funky, I'm still anxious to see this.

We are Justice Forever! Do you want to be a part of the solution? (Or a part of the problem?) Universal has launched a mini online viral for Kick-Ass 2, not long after Jim Carrey denounced the violence in the comic book movie sequel. Instead of denouncing anything, Kick-Ass (played by Aaron Johnson) is asking for the support of anyone who wants to rise up and defeat the Motherf*cker and his team. Alas, this is just one of those social media games where you can win prizes like "swag, cash and a trip to San Diego" by spreading the game around online and earning points, but it's still fun. If only the Motherf*cker had his own team, too.
