KICK-ASS Is the Hero In Name Only. International Trailer Throws The Spotlight On Hit Girl.

Todd Brown, Founder and Editor
Sorry Kick-Ass. The movie may bear your name but you're being kicked to the side. If there was any doubt after the initial red band teaser, the new international trailer for Kick-Ass 2 makes it abundantly clear: This one will succeed or fail purely on the drawing power of Chloe Moretz as Hit Girl. Yeah, sure, Aaron Johnson is still in there and Jim Carrey looks to be having a blast with his part but this trailer is absolutely, completely about Moretz. So much so that they're not even bothering to include the villains at all.

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.

Check the new trailer below.

    This has become inane & stupid and a wholly unnecessary burning of money. Furthermore:
    Violence was apparently upped to inhuman and psychotic levels making KA2 more dangerously suggestive. Jim Carrey was right regretting his role in this psychotic radioactive waste dump.
