Jim Carrey - Kick Ass 2 Trailer - More Ridiculous Than The First, Somehow

The first Kick Ass film managed to bridge the gap between satire and homage with a microscopic degree of accuracy. Real comic book aficionados loved the references to their heroes, and the blatant caricature of films like Watchmen, while the casual filmgoer enjoyed the expertly choreographed action sequences, and the equally well-constructed plot.

But as the story goes with most successful debuts, the sequels can often represent dangerous ground. If the trailer for Kick Ass 2 is anything to go by, we’re looking at a strong comeback. Kick Ass himself, and Hit Girl are accompanied by a few other superheroes to fight Red Mist - reborn as ‘The Mother F%&*^r’.

The film also sees the big-screen return of Jim Carey, who is now 51, but still ready to play demanding roles. “It’s going to be fun, it’s different for me,’ he told MTV recently. “They called me up and said “we want you to play this ex-Mafia enforcer”. So I looked at myself in the mirror and thought “OK, might have to do some work”.” Perhaps the most anticipated return though, is that of Hit Girl. And it seems as everyone’s favourite child actor has grown up, her superhero counterpart has too: "The character has completely progressed," Chloë Grace Moretz explained. "She's now 15 or 16, figuring out who she is. Is Hit-Girl the mask? Is Mindy McCready the mask? That's the cool tug of war between the two minds."
