When Kick-Ass first released in 2010, it became a surprise hit and helped Aaron Johnson and Chloe Moretz break out into mainstream fare in Hollywood. Three years after their first outing, Hit-Girl and Kick-Ass will reunite in 'Kick-Ass 2', which we got our first look at a couple of weeks ago in the form of a trailer. Now, a second trailer has been released for the film, but it focuses almost solely on Hit-Girl.
The trailer starts off with Moretz' character in high school, trying to fit in. It segues into her reunion with Kick-Ass [played by Aaron Johnson], as well as a host of other characters, including Jim Carrey's Colonel Stars and Stripes.
So far, all the footage we've seen from Kick-Ass shows us that we're in for a treat, as it looks thematically and visually similar to the first film. Of course, both Kick-Ass and Hit-Girl have grown up a bit, and with Hit-Girl in high school, we're more likely to get a little bit more high school 'angst' in this film, but not so much that it becomes the sole focus.
'Kick-Ass 2' releases on August 16th, 2013 and stars Aaron Johnson, Chloe Moretz, Jim Carrey, Lyndsy Fonseca, Christopher Mintz-Plasse, and Donald Faison.
