New 'Kick-Ass 2' Clips Channel 'Ferris Bueller's Day Off' And 'Batman'

Kick-Ass 2 opens August 16th, so Universal is releasing red band Comic-Con trailers and two new clips (below). The first clip is a spin on Ferris Bueller’s Day Off, in which Hit-Girl (Chloe Moretz) is trying to get home before her legal guardian (Morris Chestnut) gets there. I really wish they would have used “March of the Swivelheads” by The English Beat in this scene. Just own it.

Life moves pretty fast when you’re kicking muggers square in the nuts.

Here’s another clip, in which “Battle Guy” (Clark Duke) talks about his familiar-sounding origin story. This is presumably Dave’s first meeting with Colonel Stars And Stripes (movie-disowner Jim Carrey) and the rest of Justice Forever.
