'Kick-Ass 2' International Trailer Focuses on Hit-Girl (Video)
Can Hit-Girl (Chloe Grace Moretz) put her vigilante days behind her and just enjoy being a teen? As it turns out, no.
The international trailer for Kick-Ass 2 follows Hit-Girl on her first day of high school, where she gets through a gym-class dance exhibition by pretending she’s fighting ninjas and is approached by Kick-Ass (Aaron Taylor-Johnson) about getting back into the superhero game.
Soon she’s joining a team that looks like the misfit Avengers. Led by Colonel Stars and Stripes (Jim Carrey), the team doesn't take long to find the type of violent action fans of 2010's Kick-Ass will remember.
Kick-Ass 2 is directed by Jeff Wadlow and also stars Christopher Mintz-Plasse as the leader of his own team of super villains. Based on the comic book by Mark Millar and John Romita Jr., the film is slated to hit theaters Aug. 16.
