If you’ve watched the red-band trailer for Jeff Wadlow‘s Kick-Ass 2, this new all-ages version isn’t going to do much for you. This is really just the red-band trailer with all the most offensive stuff cut out. So there’s a bit less footage of the character played by Christopher Mintz-Plasse, and a bit more of Kick-Ass (Aaron Taylor-Johnson) and Hit-Girl (Chloë Grace Moretz), both in and out of costume. Even the last two kicker scenes — the place where a new trailer might usually break out the new material — are the same.
But if you want to see footage from Kick-Ass 2 and have some aversion to violence or cursing (no, I know — that wouldn’t make any sense) then check out the trailer below. For a better, different look, check out the “Hit-Girl goes to high school” trailer. Read More »

The series might be named after Kick-Ass, but it was Hit-Girl who stole every scene in the last installment. The deadly young superheroine takes center stage in the new international trailer for Kick-Ass 2, which sees Kick-Ass (Aaron Taylor-Johnson) and Hit-Girl (Chloë Grace Moretz) teaming up with the costumed hero league Justice Forever.

The first Kick-Ass featured but a handful of costumed heroes and villains, but Kick-Ass 2 will introduce us to a whole lot more. The Jeff Wadlow-directed sequel sees Kick-Ass (Aaron Taylor-Johnson) and Hit-Girl (Chloë Grace Moretz) joining forces with the do-gooder team Justice Forever, while Red Mist (Christopher Mintz-Plasse) refashions himself The Mother Fucker and amasses an evil army of his own.
A new series of character posters offers a closer look at the three returning players, while introducing us to three new faces: Mother Russia (Olga Kurkulina) and Black Death (Daniel Kaluuya) on the side of bad, and Night-Bitch (Lindy Booth) on the side of good. Check them out after the jump, but be warned that Red Mist’s new name makes them NSFW for language.

Aaron Taylor-Johnson, Chloë Grace Moretz, and Christopher Mintz-Plasse return as young costumed heroes (and a villain) in Kick-Ass 2, which sees the characters from Matthew Vaughn’s film grown up a bit, but still getting into high school-style turf wars. Problem is, there are super-sized egos involved, and the public appearance of Kick-Ass and Hit Girl has inspired a new wave of costumed vigilantes.
Never Back Down director Jeff Wadlow stepped in to direct this story, which adds Jim Carrey in a nearly unrecognizable role as a new costumed anti-hero, Colonel Stars and Stripes. The tone is a bit different this time, as the film looks a little bit brighter, and noticeably cheaper. And, as this red-band trailer shows, the vulgar jokes might not be as sharp. But this might be worth a shot for Carrey’s work alone, and if you want to see Mintz-Plasse leading a giant gang of weirdo villains, you’re in the right place. Read More »

The red-band trailer for Peter Farrelly‘s Movie 43 leaned hard on the shock factor of seeing big Hollywood stars revel in foul language and filthy jokes, but the poor green-band trailer is stuck trying to sell the exact same product by only hinting at what the NSFW version could actually show. Is Anna Faris asking Chris Pratt to take a dump on her still comedy gold when the word “poop” has to be substituted with a fart noise? Is Liev Schreiber and Naomi Watts bullying their own kid still shocking when they have to keep their behavior G-rated?
Eh, truthfully, I think the answer is that none of this looked all that outrageous to begin with. But at least it’s not any less funny than it was before. Hit the jump to see Hugh Jackman, Gerard Butler, Kate Winslet, Halle Berry, Stephen Merchant, Emma Stone, Kristen Bell, Elizabeth Banks, Josh Duhamel, Terrence Howard, Christopher Mintz-Plasse, Chloë Grace Moretz, Seann William Scott, Jason Sudeikis, Kristen Bell, Richard Gere, and so, so, so many more celebs in the new SFW trailer.

With her sharp, sarcastic persona, Aubrey Plaza could’ve easily wound up with a decent career playing BFF and sidekick roles. But in this year’s heartwarming indie hit Safety Not Guaranteed, she proved herself equally up for the task of leading a film — and now she’s about to do so again in next year’s The To Do List.
The cast list for the R-rated coming-of-age comedy reads is chock full of funny young talents. In addition to Plaza, Alia Shawkat, Christopher Mintz-Plasse, Donald Glover, Andy Samberg, Bill Hader, Rachel Bilson, Scott Porter, Johnny Simmons, and Sarah Steele all co-star. Connie Britton and Clark Gregg take on the rare grown-up roles, apparently as Plaza’s parents. CBS Films has just offered a first red-band (i.e., NSFW) look at the film in a new video announcing the release date. Watch it after the jump.
