Kick-Ass 2 teaser trailer: watch now

Get your first look at the superhero sequel

Kick-Ass 2 has released a first teaser trailer online, and you can watch it right here.

Catching up with Dave ‘Kick-Ass’ Lizewski (Aaron Taylor-Johnson) and Mindy ‘Hit-Girl’ Macready (Chloë Grace Moretz) after the events of the first film, things have… escalated.

It seems you can’t just go around playing at have-a-go-superheroes without the situation snowballing. Not only has Red Mist (Christopher Mintz-Plasse) upped the ante and reinvented himself as a supervillain (dubbed, The Motherfucker), he’s assembling a team of baddies to bring down Kick-Ass and Hit-Girl and avenge his father's death.

Throw superhero team Justice Forever into the mix and the stakes should be suitably raised for a action-packed sequel.

It's pleasing to see that Moretz still gets to, well, kick a lot of ass this time round (showing off her combat skills on top of a moving truck), and Jim Carrey's Colonel Stars and Stripes looks to be a particular madcap delight, as terrifying as he is nuts.

The sequel is based on the comic book series written by Mark Millar and pencilled by John Romita Jr. Jeff Wadlow directs, taking the reins from Part 1 director Matthew Vaughn (who stays on in a producing capacity).

Kick-Ass 2 opens in the UK on 19 July 2013.

      Can't wait for this. I loved the first one and the trailer for part two looks just as good, (he said with his fingers crossed).

      Have they used a different camera style/frame-rate this time? Doesn't look as.....cinematic to me

      Yeah I agree SiMan, looks a b***heap. That also looks like a potentially movie ruining performance from Carrey.

      Whoa, has it really been almost 20 years since Ace Ventura? The first one worked because it looked like it was done on the cheap, but this looks CGI heavy. Oh, and a teenager swearing isn't as funky as the film thinks it is. Its what teenagers do. Undecided.

      I found that extremely underwhelming. I agree with Si it's got a different vibe this time, you can notice Vaughn's absence.

      Can't wait for this film, it should be great. The first is such a cult hit & this looks just as good.

      This looks completely in-tone with the second comic book series (which was epic!), I'm so looking forward to seeing this and the "Game On ..." line is straight out of the books, made me chuckle when I read the series. This film is based on two comic book limited series; Kick-a*s 2 itself and Hit-Girl which bridges the gap between series 1 & 2, they are just as good as the original series and this looks great :-) ... and sorry to disagree @daskoyne, but from what I've seen so far Carrey won't ruin the film at all, he IS Colonel Stars n' Stripes, totally in line with the comic book character, wild, brash, outlandish and a mean mutha to deal with, I think he's gonna be great.
