It is just about delivering something exciting and visually kinetic when that time comes.

3?

1.Kick Ass vs the gang

2. Hitgirl kills rasul and his gang

3.Big Daddy's raid on the warehouse

4. Robin's revenge

5.Hit Girl destorys Damiko's thugs

And I'm counting 6.Hitgirl vs Damiko, Hitgirl vs Red Mist

No. It was supposed to come out in June but they moved it to August probably to get it away from and World War Z.

I forgot about Hit-Girl whacking Razul. There are really four then. Hit-Girl at Rasul's, Big Daddy in the warehouse, Hit-Girl trying to save Big Daddy and Kick-Ass, and HG and KA taking down D'Amico's penthouse. It is all one massive sequence that the D'Amicos are involved in.

I do not count KA fighting the gang. It is a great scene, but more for how it is cut and edited with the people watching. Visually it is just KA getting wailed on by the gang until they give up before the cops show up. It is not really an action scene per se to me. But a cool moment.

For me, that trailer was better than the entire first movie.

The greenband's already hitting theaters this week (with some prints of The Incredible Burt Wonderstone). I watched it at work today. Seemed the same as the redband, just, ya know, without any redband-y goodness, so it kinda sucked. Especially lacking that great Motherf***er reveal and cutting off Hit-Girl's last line. She just says, "game on!" which actually just makes her sound quite lame. I didn't see anything in it that wasn't in the redband.

I don't see this greenband trailer selling the uninitiated on this movie any better than the greenband trailers sold people on the 1st one, so I hope they put together another one before Fast & Furious 6.

If that's true then why is Dave walking the hallways of his HS with his friends? Why is he and Hit Girl training for the first time after 5 years of knowing each other? Why does it take Motherf***er aka Red Mist 5 years to get revenge on Dave and Hitgirl? It's simply easier just to assume she was 15 when the last movie ended and I believe that's precisely what they have done here.

So despite what the trailer says, apparently Matthew Margeson is not only composing the score, but Henry Jackman is working with him.

Not sure how you can have a green band trailer for a movie called Kick Ass, but I digress.

I personally can't wait to see someone make a film called "F*** You" just to see how the MPAA would react.

Really? Ok, I'll bite. Why is that? Because if you did not like the first, there does not seem to be much here that would improve it for you. At least, I would think not.

Why not wait and see the movie to have those questions answered?

I still don't understand why it's easier to assume that than it is to assume they'll fill in the blanks between the 1st and 2nd with backstory like every sequel does. I mean, just reading the official plot synopsis, I was assuming she didn't start training with Dave until she was caught by Marcus and forced to "retire" Hit-Girl. This would become her way of bending the rules and maintaining her skill-set. As for Dave still being in high school, A.) We were never told what year he was in the 1st one or whether he was held back after all those months of school he missed and B.) the plot synopsis makes it sound like he graduates in the beginning, so it's possible there's a time jump within the film as well, I'm guessing with a montage that the trailer narration was lifted from.

Also, Red Mist is shown living a new life in a new mansion, another indication of the passage of time, imo.

BTW, I'm pretty sure Mindy was 12 when we last saw her in KA, since she was entering junior high, so the gap we're talking about is most likely 3 years, certainly not 5.

Is it too soon to talk about what we all think it may do opening weekend/overall at the box office?

I would assume this one brings in much more opening weekend. I honestly can't count the people who didn't see this in theater but rented it and loved it. Not liked, but loved. I wonder what % of those people will pay to go see this one on the big screen.

I remember I went the opening Saturday to a 11am showing and the theater had 3 people in it. I never had wanted a movie to do well at the theater as I did Kick Ass after viewing it.

I rarely have an experience at the theater, one where when I leave I feel excited about what I just saw, but with Kick Ass I did.

They may go see it moreso now that Jim Carrey is in as well as Moretz becoming much more of a name, Johnson they can take or leave, he was never really a draw.

There's also the fact that the fourteen years olds or so who couldn't see the first movie, and loved it once it was released on DVD/Bluray can now see it in theaters too.

The bad green screen effects aren't really a problem. The VFX are far from finished, so it'll definitely look better when it's actually released.

It's still not clear whether or not the movie was pushed back in Europe as well. All websites (even the official Universal site) still say July.

The Hit-Girl trailer will definitely have more violence in it.

More goodness coming later this month. Hopefully some new stills to chew on, and not just the screenshots of the trailer they released

I'm thinking it could have around a $30-35m opening weekend, and end up around $70-85M domestic (if it's good). $160m WW.

I've heard the budget originally reported around $40m (slightly higher than the one for the 1st), but that was before it was done filming, so even if it were inflated to around $50m, that would still be a pretty good take for it.

It's easier to assume it because doing it that way requires absolutely no work at their end. They just conveniently forget that Mindy was 10, and pretend she was 15 and then move on from there. Besides, it appears as if they are following the storyline in the comics, which takes place following the events in the last film.

Mindy was 10 in the first film, and I'm sure it wouldn't take Dave 5 years or more to graduate HS. Also, most sequels do not have protagonists who grow 5 inches in between films

When did they say she was 10? The only age I remember being mentioned was 11 (as in, "she looks about 11-years-old"). Reviews and summaries claimed her to be 11, and she had a birthday during the course of the film, so with her entering junior high at the end, I've always believed her to be 11 at the start and 12 by the end.

Also, all the interviews leading up to it mentioned that they'd be altering the storyline from the comics to accommodate the age difference, so I don't see them suddenly deciding to ignore it since that's always been a common question posed to them.

She was entering HS (or Jr HS at the very least) at the end of the 1st film, I'm pretty sure they had her playing older than her age.
