Jeff Wadlow is at the helm this time around, meaning we’ve got fresh blood on both sides of the camera, and I can’t wait to see his take on the franchise for the sequel.
The brilliant first teaser trailers arrived back in March, giving us an awesome first good look at the upcoming summer blockbuster. And now Universal have released a new restricted international trailer, giving us more great footage to whet the appetite.
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. 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. 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.
Aaron Taylor-Johnson, Chloë Grace Moretz, and Christopher Mintz-Plasse are back for more for the second instalment in the series. And they’re joined by another great cast, led by Jim Carrey, Nicolas Cage, Lyndsy Foseca, Donald Faison, Lindy Booth, Yancy Butler, Clark Duke, Andy Nyman, Robert Emms, John Leguizamo, and Olga Kurkulina.
Wadlow is directing from his own script, based on the original comics by Mark Millar and John Romita, Jr. And Matthew Vaughn is back on board, returning as an executive producer this time around.
Kick-Ass 2 will be hitting the UK on 14th August, with its US release date following two days later on August 16th. We may still have a little while to go yet, but here’s the new trailer to make the wait that much more bearable. And remember, as you’d expect, it’s highly red-band in nature and entirely unsuitable for work. Enjoy.
