Kick-Ass and Hit Girl are back! Universal Pictures has released several new stills, a movie poster and, most importantly, a red band movie trailer featuring Aaron Taylor-Johnson, Chloe Grace Moretz and none other than Jim Carrey as absurd crime fighters doing very absurd things.
The plot is simple: After Kick-Ass’ (Aaron Taylor-Johnson) insane bravery inspires a new wave of self-made masked crusaders, led by the badass Colonel Stars and Stripes (Jim Carrey), our hero joins them on patrol. When these amateur superheroes are hunted down by Red Mist (Christopher Mintz-Plasse)—reborn as The Mother F%&*^r—only the blade-wielding Hit Girl (Chloë Grace Moretz) can prevent their annihilation.
Kick-Ass 2 debuts in theaters on August 16, 2013. Check out the new photos, too.
