A new “Kick-Ass 2” trailer has arrived, and unfortunately it’s not that different from the previous one released. In fact, if anything this one is a little bit less, and its green-band nature means that it’s toned down from the already-released red-band one.
That’s okay though, because we’re just excited to be involved in Kick-Ass’s world again. This is a trailer you can show your mother or your grandmother to explain why you’re so excited about this new movie, unless you’re mother or grandmother is a badass and planning to see “Kick-Ass 2” in theaters with you. (In that case, show her the red-band one.)
This trailer still highlights everything we’re excited about in “Kick-Ass 2”. Beyond just being excited to return to the world introduced in 2010’s “Kick-Ass,” we’re thrilled to see a larger group of actors become involved in Kick-Ass and Hit-Girl’s world. Yes, we are mostly talking about seeing Jim Carrey don a superhero suit in this movie.
“Kick-Ass 2” stars Aaron Johnson, Christopher Mintz-Plasse and Chloe Moretz. It also introduces Faison as Doctor Gravity, Robert Emms as Insect Man, Lindy Booth as Night-Bitch, Lee as Brooke, Jim Carrey as The Colonel, John Leguizamo as Red Mist;s bodyguard and Morris Chestnut as Hit-Girl’s guardian. Directed by Wadlow, it’s due in theaters on June 28, 2013.
Here’s the official plot synopsis for “Kick-Ass 2”:
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.
