Comic-Con 2013: ‘Kick-Ass 2’ Drops Extended Red Band Trailer [Video]

An extended red band trailer for Kick-Ass 2 debuted at Comic-Con 2013.

Writer-director Jeff Wadlow’s upcoming sequel looks just as bloody and foul-mouthed as the original. If the previous trailers for the flick were too tame for your liking, then the clip you see embedded above should satisfy your craving for snarky carnage.

It’s worth noting that the extended Kick-Ass 2 Comic-Con 2013 trailer is definitely not safe for work, small children, or people who are sensitive to crude language or violence. This isn’t the sort of thing you want to watch while your kids are looking over your shoulder.

Although the clip doesn’t really offer up too much you haven’t seen before, it takes the previously-released footage a few steps further. There’s a fair amount of grisly gore and gallows humor sprinkled throughout the trailer, suggesting that Wadlow thoroughly understands what made the first movie so popular with moviegoers.

Kick-Ass 2 pretty much begins where the first installment ended. Kick-Ass (Aaron Taylor-Johnson) and Hit-Girl (Chloe Grace Moretz) are attempting to live their lives as normal teenagers. However, this doesn’t stop them from keeping in shape and staying sharp in case evil returns to the streets.

Of course, it doesn’t take long for the world’s first supervillain to emerge. Still angry about his father’s death, Chris D’Amico (Christopher Mintz-Plasse) transformers himself into The Mother F***er. Determined to take over the city and destroy the heroes, he assembles a team of like-minded criminals to help him execute his plan.

In addition to showcasing the film’s numerous set pieces, the extended Kick-Ass 2 clip introduces a number of the villains Kick-Ass and his team are up against in the sequel. Included in the bunch at The Tumor, Mother Russia, and Black Death.

Jeff Wadlow’s Kick-Ass 2 is slated to arrive in theaters across the US on August 16. What do you think about the movie’s extended Comic-Con 2013 trailer?
