Leave it to Kick-Ass 2 to make an impression and leave a mark — its first trailer is a red-band clip full of foul language and ultraviolence. What’s not to love?
Check out the brutal beat-downs and NSFW foulest of language here:
It seems pretty clear from this clip that new director Jeff Wadlow is not taking the franchise in a wildly different direction after taking over for Matthew Vaughn, and the surviving original cast are all back, including Aaron Taylor-Johnson as Kick-Ass, Chloë Grace Moretz as Hit Girl, Lyndsy Fonseca as Katie and Chistopher Mintz-Plasse as the
Red Mist Motherf—er. Jim Carrey leads the new cast, playing Colonel Stars and Stripes.
Kick-Ass 2 opens Aug. 16.
