If you’ve seen any of the trailers for “Kick-Ass 2,” then odds are you’ve spotted Mother Russia. I mean, it is hard to miss a 6’6″ bodybuilder in a bright red bikini. The character, played by Russian bodybuilder Olga Kurkulina, is at the center of the latest two videos released as part of “Kick-Ass 2’s” insane media blitz leading up to the film’s August 16th release.
First up is a featurette, which has director Jeff Wadlow and creator Mark Millar discussing the work that went into bringing the powerhouse character to life on the big screen, followed up by comments from Kurkulina’s cast-mates Aaron Taylor-Johnson, Chloe Grace Moretz, and Clark Duke. They all have super nice things to say about her… but then again, would you want to say anything mean about her?
The next NSFW video (naughty language!) focuses the epic showdown to end all showdowns between Hit-Girl and Mother Russia. There’s plenty of new footage shown of action both in front of and behind the camera of what looks like it will be the most intense fight scene of the entire film.
