Empire Magazine’s upcoming issue features several new pictures from some of 2013’s most anticipated movies and today we have some high-quality scans of some images from Kick-Ass 2 featuring Aaron Taylor-Johnson as Kick-Ass, Jim Carrey as Colonel Stars and Stripes and a first look at Chloe Moretz as Hit Girl, though, in all honesty she doesn’t look all that different.
Personally, Kick-Ass was only decent. My favorite part of the whole thing was Moretz as the young ass-kicker, but the rest of the story I found rather uninteresting.
Kick-Ass 2 hits theaters on June 28 and I would think Universal would have a trailer for us rather soon. Here’s the film’s synopsis followed by two looks at Moretz:
Kick-Ass, Hit Girl and Red Mist return for the follow-up to 2010’s irreverent global hit: Kick-Ass 2. After Kick-Ass’ (Aaron Taylor-Johnson) insane bravery inspires a new wave of self-made masked crusaders, led by the badass Colonel Stars and Stripes (Jim Carrey), our hero joins them on patrol. When these amateur superheroes are hunted down by Red Mist (Christopher Mintz-Plasse)–reborn as The Mother F%&*^r–only the blade-wielding Hit Girl (Chloe Grace Moretz) can prevent their annihilation.
When we last saw junior assassin Hit Girl and young vigilante Kick-Ass, they were trying to live as normal teenagers Mindy and Dave. With graduation looming and uncertain what to do, Dave decides to start the world’s first superhero team with Mindy. Unfortunately, when Mindy is busted for sneaking out as Hit Girl, sheâ€™s forced to retire–leaving her to navigate the terrifying world of high-school mean girls on her own. With no one left to turn to, Dave joins forces with Justice Forever, run by a born-again ex-mobster named Colonel Stars and Stripes.
Just as they start to make a real difference on the streets, the world’s first super villain, The Mother F%&*^r, assembles his own evil league and puts a plan in motion to make Kick-Ass and Hit Girl pay for what they did to his dad. But thereâ€™s only one problem with his scheme: If you mess with one member of Justice Forever, you mess with them all.
