Like ass kicking? Good. Check out the first Red Band trailer for Jeff Wadlow’s “Kick-Ass 2”, which looks like it’s ditched the “Balls to the Wall” subtitle and will just stick with the good ol reliable numbered title system. Hey, that’s one way to go, I guess.
By the way, I guess it’s safe to say Kick Ass is no longer the skinny nerd of the first movie, especially since Aaron Johnson, who plays the character, looks like he spends most of his time in the gym. Then again, Johnson never looked particularly “nerdy” to me in the first movie either, so I guess it’s appropriate that they’re not even going to bother pretending he’s a skinny dork in the sequel, glasses and frizzy hair notwithstanding.
The costumed high-school hero Kick-Ass joins with a group of normal citizens who have been inspired to fight crime in costume. Meanwhile, the Red Mist plots an act of revenge that will affect everyone Kick-Ass knows.
Starring Aaron Johnson, Chloe Grace Moretz, Christopher Mintz-Plasse, John Leguizamo, Nicolas Cage, Lyndsy Fonseca, Donald Faison, Jim Carrey, Lindy Booth, Morris Chestnut, and Yancy Butler.
