Universal has released an international trailer for Jeff Wadlow’s KICK-ASS 2. The sequel follows high-school hero Kick-Ass as he joins with a group of normal citizens who have been inspired to fight crime in costume. Meanwhile, the Red Mist plots an act of revenge that will affect everyone Kick-Ass knows.
“Colonel Stars used to work for John Genovese alongside the man who would become Lieutenant Stripes. Both men became born-again Christians before leaving Genovese’s employment. Because of this, both survived when Kick-Ass and Hit-Girl took the organization down. Colonel Stars and Lieutenant Stripes both formed Justice Forever, inviting other superheroes to join. They soon recruited Remembering Tommy, Night Bitch, Insect Man, Battle Guy and later Kick-Ass. Their first mission involved taking down a human trafficking organization.”
Aaron Johnson, Jim Carrey, Chloe Moretz, Christopher Mintz-Plasse, Clark Duke, Donald Faison, John Leguizamo, and Olga Kurkulina star. Kick-Ass 2 opens on August 16th. Trailer via Empire.
