Mark Millar‘s Kick-Ass 2 has a new international trailer smacking its way around the internet today. The trailer focuses on Chloë Moretz‘s character Mindy Macready aka Hit-Girl and her attempt to adjust to a normal life after the events of Kick-Ass and the death of her father.
As one can easily guess, the adrenalin pumped world of fighting crime is not easy for Hit-Girl to give up after training her whole life to do just that, kick ass. We get another look at Hit-Girl training Kick-Ass (Aaron Johnson) who makes the transformation from bumbling superhero wannabe into a pumped-up, skilled fighter.
The trailer also gives us more glimpses of Colonel Stars and Stripes, (Jim Carrey). According to the sequel’s plot synopsis, Kick-Ass joins forces with the Colonel to battle Red Mist (Christopher Mintz-Plasse), who betrayed him in the first film.
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 (Chloë 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.
Directed by Jeff Wadlow, who also adapted the script from Millar’s Kick-Ass 2 comic book, the film also stars John Leguizamo, as well as former Scrubs actor Donald Faison, and opens in theaters everywhere on June 28th.
