The Red-Band trailer for “Kick-Ass 2” is here and overloaded with shots guaranteed to up your anticipation. We picked out the 15 must-see moments from this incredibly NSFW trailer.
» It looks like Aaron Taylor-Johnson has ingested a bit of Captain America’s Super Soldier Serum for this sequel. Chris Evans had better step up his game.
» Chloe Grace Moretz, sporting a wig surely borrowed from Prince’s concert tour, delivers mega attitude as Hit-Girl.
» Hit-Girl comes fully equipped with a purple Ducati bike, glimpsed briefly in the trailer and hopefully extensively in the film.
» Jim Carrey disappears completely and Stars and Stripes reappears. It’s safe to say that this character is way more intense than the Riddler and the Mask combined.
» Oh yeah! Kick-Ass and Stars and Stripes are best friends, and there’s no way this partnership can ever go wrong! Plus, check out that lair.
» Kick-Ass and the gang from Justice Forever lay down the law. The crime? Not taking care of money. How messy!
» Christopher Mintz-Plasse has successfully made the jump from super bad to super villain, complete with some semi-super facial hair.
» Mintz-Plasse as the incredibly-NSFW-named antagonist, gives us the first potential contender for this year’s most-overdone Halloween costume. Stock up, Party City.
» At least the local news website used Kick-Ass and Hit-Girl’s most flattering headshots.
» The super villain lair puts all others to shame. Cars, pinball machines, this place makes the Foot Clan’s old club look as exciting as an Office Max.
» No funeral is safe from flame-throwers. Well, most places are not safe from flame-throwers.
» One would think that Kick-Ass and Hit-Girl are hopelessly outmatched, what with the dozen studded and heavily armed goons crowding the frame. Then one remembers that this movie is named after “Kick-Ass” and knows that things will probably turn out all right.
» This eye-gouge is for totally ripping off the look that orcs have been sporting for decades!
» Here’s Kick-Ass going full-on Batman circa Frank Miller’s “Dark Knight Returns.” And why is he sporting Big Daddy’s body armor?
» Even Mother Russia, the baddest looking woman since pre-Flavor Flav Brigitte Nielsen, doesn’t stand a chance against Hit-Girl.
