Kick-Ass 2 Gets Hit Girl-Filled International Trailer
Following Kick-Ass 2ís expletive-laden action-heavy red band trailer that came out a couple of weeks ago, there wasnít much more to do to reintroduce some of the most uncouth and amusing vigilantes ever to grace cinema screens and comic pages. And as you can see from the international trailer above, no attempts were made to try and top to previous trailerís mayhem.
Thereís something slightly unsettling about the fact that while a lot of the trailerís bits were seen before, the bulk of the new footage follows the un-costumed Hit Girl Mindy Macready (ChloŽ Grace Moretz) as she attempts to be a normal high school girl, associating an improvised cheerleading tryout with the choreography that goes along with fighting ruthless villains. Half of the trailerís 1:23 runtime is over before we even get to see Kick-Ass (Aaron Taylor-Johnson), Colonel Stars and Stripes (Jim Carrey) and the rest of the bunch. Itís understood that Hit Girl is a loner and that it takes a little work to get her to join the super group Justice Forever, but someone who didnít know better might think that this film centered solely on Hit Girl. The Mother Fucker (Christopher Mintz-Plasse) isnít even shown!
Kick-Ass 2, which also stars Clark Duke, John Leguizamo, Donald Faison, Morris Chestnut andOlga Kurkulin, opens nationwide on August 16, 2013.
