After Kick Ass’ insane bravery inspires a new wave of self-made masked crusaders, led by the badass Colonel Stars and Stripes, our hero joins them on patrol. When these amateur superheroes are hunted down by Red Mist, reborn as The Mother Fucker, only the blade-wielding Hit Girl can prevent their annihilation.
Hit-Girl was always one of the best things about the first Kick-Ass movie, so I’m glad to see that the filmmakers (the director of whom wasn’t involved in the first film) understand her appeal as a character. If this trailer is any indication, it looks like she’ll be getting just as much screen time as the titular Kick-Ass, and that’s just fine by me. No two ways about it: Chloe Moretz owns.
Kick-Ass 2 comes out August 16, 2013.
