Pictured: the real star of this franchise, if we’re being honest.
It’s been a long time since we checked in on Universal’s Kick-Ass 2: Balls To The Wall. We posted set photos of most of the cast last September as well as pictures of 15-year-old Chloë Moretz and 22-year-old Aaron Johnson kissing for some reason. We’ve been sitting on a pile of Kick-Ass 2 pictures since then waiting for a good excuse to post them, and the day has arrived. The first red band trailer just premiered a few minutes ago for the movie which opens August 16th, 2013.
Kick-Ass 2: Balls To The Wall stars Aaron Johnson as Kick-Ass, Chloë Moretz as Hit-Girl, Jim Carrey as Colonel Stars, Lindy Booth as Night Bitch, Donald Faison as Doctor Gravity, Robert Emms as Insect Man, Clark Duke as Battle-Guy, Olga Kurkulina as Mother Russia, and Filmdrunk fan Christopher Mintz-Plasse as The Mother F*cker (formerly Red Mist).
The red band trailer starts out with a reference to this scene from the comics, and numerous other scenes directly from the comics make their transition to the screen in this trailer. Check it out below, and try not to get too distracted by whatever voice Jim Carrey is trying to do here.
