Hit Girl’s All Grown Up in First Trailer for ‘Kick-Ass 2’ with Chloe Moretz and Jim Carrey
The first ‘Kick-Ass’ movie marked a turning point in the superhero genre, with more and more self-aware movies appearing in the years following its release and unexpected success. Now the follow-up is on its way and, as this trailer suggests, everything’s just gotten bigger and more insane. Kick-Ass 2 will focus on the rise of the supervillain, with Christopher Mintz-Plasse’s The Motherf*cker taking on Kick-Ass, Hit Girl and Justice Forever.
Directed by Jeff Wadlow (replacing Matthew Vaughn) and also starring Aaron Taylor-Johnson, Chloe Moretz, Jim Carrey, Donald Faison, Lindy Booth, John Leguizamo and Olga Kurkulina, the film hits theaters on August 16th and you can watch the first trailer below.
