Be forewarned, little superstars: After watching the official, EXCLUSIVE debut of the new "Kick-Ass 2" red band trailer, you will enter an action-inspired fugue state in which you want to punch All The Things while yelling All The Bad Words. So get ready, get set and get anything breakable (like heirloom ceramics or, say, your cat) out of immediate reach...and then, if you're feeling powerful, click play. Just don't say we didn't warn you. (Warning: NSFW)
This long-awaited sequel to the first "Kick-Ass" film finds all the original ass-kickers back in action, along with a few new faces for guaranteed maximum ass-kickage. The green-suited Kick-Ass (Aaron Taylor-Johnson) and the wild-wigged Hit Girl (Chloë Grace Moretz) are still on the job, training hard by day and keeping their city safe by night. And this time around, they're joined by the slightly-unhinged but still-highly-committed Colonel Stars and Stripes (because Captain America was taken, we're guessing), played by the almost unrecognizably-grizzled Jim Carrey in a camouflage jumpsuit. And the heroes are facing a new threat: Red Mist, now reborn as a super villain with a hilarious (but sadly unprintable) name. Bullets will fly! Mettle will be tested! And yes, oh yes, ass will be kicked.
"Kick-Ass 2" hits theaters August 13.
