'Kick-Ass 2' trailer doesn't run from gun controversy
Oooooo, boy. Jim Carrey is going to get Carpal tunnel from tweeting about this one.
Kick-Ass 2 unveiled an extended NSFW trailer at Comic-Con, and it’s already available online. Carrey, who joins the franchise as the patriotic vigilante, Colonel Stars and Stripes, has expressed regret about the film’s level of violence in the aftermath of the Sandy Hook school shooting, complicating Universal’s promotional plans. But this new clip aims full-steam into the storm, embracing the film’s over-the-top comic-book violence. In the opening scene, the two main characters frivolously exercise their right to bear arms, and then when Hit-Girl (Chloë Grace Moretz) finally shows off her deadly skills, she dis-arms an devious villain.
“Game on, c–ksuckers,” she says later. Indeed.
Watch the explosive clip below.
