Finally! A Kick-Ass 2 trailer has arrived. Universal Pictures unveiled the trailer today — I mean the red band trailer and it looks like oodles of fun. From the looks of the preview clip, Kick-Ass 2 is living up to its brand. There is no shortage of cursing, a** kicking and raunchy jokes in this one, hence the age requirement to watch the trailer.
The film stars Aaron Taylor-Johnson, Chloe Grace Moretz and Christopher Mintz. But One character to look out for is Colonel Stars and Strips, played by Jim Carrey. He’s a show stealer. See for yourself in the video player below.
Universal’s official storyline is as follows:
After Kick-Ass‘ insane bravery inspires a new wave of self-made masked crusaders, led by the badass Colonel Stars and Stripes, our hero joins them on patrol. When these amateur superheroes are hunted down by Red Mist — reborn as The Mother F%&*^r — only the blade-wielding Hit Girl 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.
