Kick-Ass 2 swears, shoots and bleeds all over its first red-band trailer

The first ever trailer for Kick-Ass 2 has been released, and you probably won't be shocked to know it's chock full of violence and profanity. Chloë Moretz is back to doing what she does best, namely calling people cocksuckers and stabbing them in the groin. It certainly appears Hit Girl has evolved into an even more lethal force since the first movie.

Directed by Jeff Wadlow, the trailer has the same look, feel and pop candy-type tunes that Matthew Vaughn established in the original. Which is a very good thing! Plus, it includes the first footage of Jim Carrey as Colonel Stars and Stripes, as well as Christopher Mintz-Plasse's Motherfucker!

Kick-Ass 2 will hit theaters on August 16th.
