New Kick-Ass 2 Red-Band Trailer Lands

Hit-Girl and Kick-Ass are back back back

Mark Millar and John Romita Jr.'s second helping of graphic mayhem Kick-Ass 2 has a new teaser trailer which you can feast your eyes on below (even if you're not in the US).

brightcove.createExperiences();Back for the second outing are the DIY Avenger himself, Dave Lizewski's Kick-Ass (Aaron Taylor-Johnson) and his badass partner-in-crimebusting Hit-Girl (Chloë Grace Moretz). This time, they're joined by Jim Carrey's Colonel Stars and Stripes. The American heads up a group of vigilantes known as 'Justice Forever' who will come head-to-head with Red Mist (Christopher Mintz-Plasse), aka 'The Motherfucker', and his unique brand of sadistic carnage.

Producer Matthew Vaughn has Jeff Wadlow behind the camera on this one, although the hyper-kinetic style of the original doesn't seem to have been lost in the handover.

Kick-Ass 2 is out in the UK on July 19 before making its US debut on August 16. Listen to Empire's Mark Millar podcast for more in the meantime.
