The Red-Band Trailer for ‘Kick-Ass 2’ Lives Up to Its Namesake

Unfortunately (SPOILER ALERT) Big Daddy did not make it through “Kick Ass.” And the way he went out doesn't exactly set up for a dramatic return from the “dead.” So this sequel is going in without its best character.

In “Kick-Ass 2's” favor, though? Jim Carrey.

That's Jim Carrey as the jacked character Colonel Stars and Stripes. I did not recognize him. I thought he was Mickey Rourke for a second. But, most importantly, he's hilarious. If anyone can carry a strange superhero flick like this, which requires one scene-chewing character, it's Carrey. (Sorry, McLovin', you're not cutting it.) 

“Kick-Ass 2” comes out August 16.
