Kick-Ass 2: Official Green Band Trailer

A tad tame but still good

Here is the official Green Band trailer for Kick-Ass 2. It will be interesting to see how they get around saying Christopher Mintz-Plasse’s character’s name in the trailers and TV Spots. This trailer is good but the Red Band trailer has all the best lines. Check it out here.  

The Plot: Kick-Ass, Hit Girl and Red Mist return for the follow-up to 2010’s irreverent global hit: Kick-Ass 2. After Kick-Ass’ (Aaron Taylor-Johnson) insane bravery inspires a new wave of self-made masked crusaders, led by the badass Colonel Stars and Stripes (Jim Carrey), our hero joins them on patrol. When these amateur superheroes are hunted down by Red Mist (Christopher Mintz-Plasse)—reborn as The Mother F%&*^r—only the blade-wielding Hit Girl (Chloe Grace Moretz) can prevent their annihilation. 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.

Kick-Ass 2 enters theaters on August 16, 2013.

Wow that is the Green band trailer? Seriously? That is was pushing it. But I CAN'T wait for this. It looks better than the first one. Although I will miss Cage as Big Daddy. He was awesome in that role.

Is it just me or does Jim Carrey more and more look like a deranged, younger and liquored up John Malkovich under that mask who hasn't shaved for days?

I was thinking that same thing Raith. But Carrey definately has a little more deranged factor.

 Jim Carrey looking like the nut job he is.

Jim Carrey has been the kiss of death for every movie he's been in for the last few years. So I think don't this will be any different.

I disagree @redvector he hasn't been the kiss of death, just he's now reached a point to where he needs a career re-invention as far as comedies go and this could be the start of that.  albeit Kick-Ass would be viewed as a dark comedy/drama action pic.  Carrey has gotten tame for a few years as there really hasn't been that right material that he hasn't been able to run with.  When you do films that are counter-productive of what you been known for, the film suffers for it and so does your box office clout.  

Carrey has never scoffed at showing his versatility as an actor and is damn good at it, just when he does it, people find it awkward when he deviates from his usual schtick and hardly gives it a chance other than The Truman Show.  Carrey is conveying that he isn't a one-trick pony in that he can do other things besides comedy, you just got to be willing to give him credit.  

Burt Wunderstone wasn't Carrey's fault in some of the reviews I've read as it appeared he was the only one who pulled his weight in the film as the co-star, that falls on Steve Carrell and Steve Buschemi since they were front and center.  Though admirers of Buschemi will let him have a pass as he's seldom not often put in that position other than Boardwalk Empire (great show at the times I've caught it). 

Carrell on the other hand, he's just not a reliable box office draw material.  He's still relevant in large part due to The Office, and even there he ran his course well before he left the series.  He has more misses than hits and Despicable Me kept him afloat, as typically well made cartoons can do that for people who tend to struggle for a while on the live-action front.  Despicable Me 2 will most likely pull him up again, but then can he sustain momentum?  

Now if you want to talk about kiss of death.... look no further than COLIN FARELL.  Umm... how many films tanked worse with each progression under him since Alexander??  How he keeps getting top-billing for movies given his black cat label is beyond me.  The last good film in which he was in the starring role was Phone Booth and Horrible Bosses was a hit with him as a low-key co-star that some really didn't notice him and he was somewhat unrecognizable in his balding makeup and pudgy cushion trying to ape off Tom Cruise's Les Grossman character. Not to mention it was a hit likely because how many of us here work for rotten bosses that we'd love to stick it to?
