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

Highlights include Jim Carrey delivering the line 'Yeah, there's a dog on your balls'

A new trailer for Kick-Ass 2 has been released. Scroll down and click ‘play’ to watch it.

The new trailer is less sweary and gory than the first one, which you can watch here, but still features Jim Carrey delivering the memorable line: “Yeah, there’s a dog on your balls.” There’s also plenty of fisticuffs stuff from Aaron Johnson’s Kick-Ass and Chloe Moretz’s Hit-Girl.

Carrey plays a new character called Colonel Stars and Stripes who appears to speak in a cod-German accent. According to the sequel’s plot synopsis, Kick-Ass joins forces 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 opened in cinemas in 2010, Kick-Ass wasn’t 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). The film also stars John Leguizamo, Christopher Mintz-Plasse and former Scrubs actor Donald Faison, and opens in UK cinemas on July 19.
