First ‘Kick-Ass 2’ trailer appears online – watch

It's packed with thrills, spills and naughty words and should probably be considered NSFW

The first trailer for Kick-Ass 2 has been released online.

The two-and-a-half minute teaser is packed with thrills, spills and naughty words and should probably be considered NSFW (not safe for work). If this doesn’t bother you, scroll down and click ‘play’ to watch it.

The trailer begins with a fight scene between Aaron Johnson‘s Kick-Ass and Chloe Moretz’s Hit-Girl and features several glimpses of Colonel Stars And Stripes, the new character played by Jim Carrey. According to the sequel’s plot synopsis, Kick-Ass teams up with the Colonel to battle Red Mist, the character who betrayed him in the first film.

Based on a comic book by Mark Millar, the first film told the story of an ordinary teenager who reinvents himself as a real-life superhero called Kick-Ass. When it hit cinemas in 2010, Kick Ass was not a huge box office success, but it’s since built a strong following on DVD and Blu-ray.

Directed by Jeff Wadlow, who also wrote the script based on Millar’s Kick-Ass 2 comic book, the sequel was shot in Toronto between September and November last year (2012). Reporting from the set at the time, Millar teased that Kick-Ass 2 will feature an “astonishing” fight scene starring Moretz’s Hit-Girl.

The film’s cast also includes John Leguizamo, Christopher Mintz-Plasse and former Scrubs actor Donald Faison. It opens in the UK on July 19.
