‘Kick-Ass 2′ Is Kickier and Assier Than Original —RED BAND TRAILER

Kick-Ass 2 Starring Aaron Taylor-Johnson and Chloe Grace Moretz Gets a Punshing Red Band Trailer

Color us disappointed that the sequel to 2010’s superhero spoof Kick-Ass didn’t follow the naming scheme of the Die Hard series, because Kick-Ass 2: Kick Asser would have been amazing.

As it stands, Universal’s new red band trailer for Kick-Ass 2 is brutally funny and just plain brutal…as is to be expected from any trailer that features not one but two Sleigh Bells songs. As with the original, the true star here is not Aaron Taylor-Johnson’s amateur avenger but Chloë Grace Moretz’s purple-wigged bruiser, Hit-Girl. There’s something cathartically invigorating about hearing the 15-year-old Moretz deliver lines like “Game on, c***suckers!” and “Act like a bitch, get slapped like a bitch” with a poker face.

Equally crazy is Jim Carrey as the baseball-wielding crimefighter Colonel Stars and Stripes, who’s kind of like a more comical version of Watchmen’s Comedian. Oh yes, and Christopher Mintz-Plasse returns to avenge his father’s defeat in the first movie as a leather-daddy villain subtly named “The Motherf***er.” Check it out:
