A brief new clip from Kick-Ass 2

To promote the launch of The Mother F*cker’s Twitter account, Universal has released a brief new clip from the upcoming superhero sequel Kick-Ass 2, showing how Christopher Mintz-Plasse’s supervillain is influencing the kids of Dave (Aaron Taylor-Johnson) and Marty’s (Clark Duke) high school. It is of course NSFW, but I guess the character name gives that away already. Check it out after the official synopsis….

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 (Chloë 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, she’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 there’s only one problem with his scheme: If you mess with one member of Justice Forever, you mess with them all.

Kick-Ass 2 is based on the comic book by Mark Millar and John Romita, Jr., with Jeff Wadlow (Never Back Down) directing a cast that also includes Lyndsy Fonseca (Nikita), Donald Faison (Scrubs), Lindy Booth (The Philanthropist), John Leguizamo (Spawn), Robert Emms (Broken), Andy Nyman (Black Death), Daniel Kaluuya (Black Mirror), Augustus Prew (The Borgias), Morris Chestnut (The Call), Claudia Lee (Hart of Dixie) and Ukrainian bodybuiler Olga Kurkulina. The film opens in the UK on August 14th and across North America on August 16th.
