Good morning true believers! Your friendly neighborhood Dork Knight is here to share the first look at the follow-up to 2010’s box office hit, Kick-Ass, with the MTV Exclusive Kick-Ass 2 Red Band Trailer Premeire!
But first, here’s the plot straight from the source:
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.
Now enjoy the trailer. :)
Kick-Ass 2, based on the comic books by Mark Millar and Jon Romita Jr, stars Aaron Taylor-Johnson as Kick-Ass, Chloë Grace Moretz as Hit Girl, Christopher Mintz-Plasse aka McLovin as Red Mist, and Jim Carrey as born-again ex-mobster, Colonel Stars and Stripes.
