TRAILER: Kick-Ass 2 looks dry and understated

I loved Kick-Ass, but it didn’t bode well when the sequel lost original director Matthew Vaughn and picked up some dude I’d never heard of. Now the international red-band trailer is out, and it has all the things you love from the original – Aaron Taylor-Johnson wearing too many layers of shirts, Chloe Moretz cursing like a high school football coach, sexualized teenagers, and over-the-top violence – PLUS, it throws in Jim Carrey and Christopher Mintz-Plasse in an even more ridiculous costume for good measure. I’m intrigued, I just worry this might be too subtle and minimalist to connect with broader audiences.

I take it as a personal insult that they used a colorblindness chart I can’t read for the main title card. Not cool, guys, not cool.
