Kick-Ass 2, the seemingly unlikely sequel to the 2010 amateur vigilante epic has released a two minute treat of a clip showing us a bit of the titanic tussle that will occur within the film.
While the debut trailer that dropped last month hinted at some kind of gigantic super-scrap between Kick-Ass' (Aaron Taylor-Johnson) newly-assembled army of amateurs and The Motherf**ker's (Christopher Mintz-Plasse) repulsively pusillanimous posse of pain, we certainly didn't imagine it would be in this scale. Thankfully, this new clip sticks with the story just fine and walks the fine line of giving you a bit of what you want to see without making the business mistake of giving you everything.
Indeed, this scene seemingly revels in the abundance of absurdity it contains, while simultaneously carrying forward the tension built between our protagonist and his obscene antagonist which stems back to events in the first film. That tension is certainly released here at the Evil Lair. From the ballistic brawl between the regiments of rookies to what looks to be an ever-building and epic showdown between Hit-Girl (Chloe Grace Moretz) and the monolithic Mother Russia (Olga Kurkulina), you will no doubt leave with the impression that this film will live up to its awesomely unambiguous title.
Kick-Ass 2 channels Enter the Dragon for mass mega-fights when it hits theaters on August 16. Check out the (potentially spoileriffic) clip below!
