From creators Mark Millar and John Romita Jr comes the next installment of the gritty and contraversial vigilante “superhero” story – Kick Ass 2!
The studio launched its first trailer for the movie and as you can see, it won’t disappoint! (WARNING: Red Band trailer may offend some)
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.
“There’s no room for punks in suits … just real heroes who can really kick ass.”
Returning to reprise their roles from the first movie are Aaron Taylor-Johnson, Chloe Moretz, Christopher Mintz-Plasse. Joining the cast in Kick Ass 2 as “Colonel Stars and Stripes” will be funny man Jim Carrey.
As reported by Flickering Myth.Com, Chloe Moretz, aka: Hit Girl, talked about how her character is taking a more adult role;
“There’s going to get a bit more romance, a much more grown up Mindy Macready,” Moretz goes on to say, “Someone who’s questioning themself and whether they are a villain, assassin or a vigilante and a hero. So there’s a lot of tormented inner self, it’s interesting… It’s been amazing revising the character and showing her more grown up and more adult and more put together. It’s been a lot of fun.”
Kick Ass 2 opens in theaters August 16th.
