For a long time now I’ve been really looking forward to seeing Kick-Ass 2. Everything looked to be falling into place, the main cast members were back, Matthew Vaughn was still going to be involved (even if it wasn’t as director) and the new cast members added looked really interesting. Now the first trailer has been released and it looks like my anticipation was justified. http://c.brightcove.com/services/viewer/federated_f9?isVid=1
This looks like a great continuation of the story, following up on the sequel bait from the end of the first film. It looks like it’ll expand on the characters and not just be a lazy rehash of the first film. The new cast members look great, especially Jim Carrey who looks like he is having a ball with this character.
Once again though, all the best lines and what looks like the best action scenes will be going to Chloe Grace Moretz as Hit Girl. Now I named her performance as this character my favourite performance from 2010 and it looks like she’ll be even better in this film. I’m looking forward to seeing all of the hyped stuff about her outside of the Hit Girl costume.
All in all, I’m really looking forward to this film and I think my placing it as number 2 in my most anticipated films on the year is now justified. (And yes, I will do one of these when The World’s End releases a trailer)
