Universal Pictures has released the first trailer for Kick-Ass 2 in red band form (naturally). Aaron Taylor-Johnson, Chloë Grace Moretz, and Christopher Mintz-Plasse return to their roles, and we have Jim Carrey playing a character that’s completely new. Some people probably won’t catch on that it’s him until the words ‘Jim Carrey’ flash across the screen.
Watch the trailer below:
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.
Kick-Ass director Matthew Vaughn is producing, and Jeff Wadlow is directing from a script he wrote. The film will be released in the US on 16th August, and UK on 19th July.
