6 new character posters for Kick-Ass 2 don't try to hide the profanity-laced codenames
After a pretty stellar trailer premiere it looks like KICK-ASS 2 is back in the limelight and today we have six new character posters that don't hold anything back. Sure, they're your standard, high-res character shots, but it's notable that their profanity-laced codenames are front and center without any censorship. It won't stay that way for most countries, but it's still cool to see the real names on display, like 'em or not. I certainly don't have any issue with them, mostly because I know these won't be hanging at a kids bus stop with those names intact.
Kick-Ass, You MotherF*cking Night Bitch!:
The trailer for the film had all the cheesy, over-the-top action and shock-value dialogue that was so prevalent in the first one, looking every bit the perfect sequel mold. There were quite a few complaints about green screen effects, etc., and while I agree that some of them were less than refined, I think it actually works, as the film isn't meant to be (nor did it have the budget for) an AVENGERS level pic. It's satire disguised as reality. I think they've got a good balance.
KICK-ASS 2, starring Aaron Taylor-Johnson, Chloe Moretz, Jim Carrey, Christopher Mintz-Plasse, Lyndsy Fonseca, John Leguizamo, Donald Faison, Lindy Booth, Morris Chestnut, Clark Duke, and Yancy Butler brings the potty mouth on August 16, 2013.
