I just hope she doesn't become another one of those child stars. I get the feeling though she'll bump the trend, she seems to have a strong support group and a good head on her shoulders. Her advantage is she's been in more mature films which tends to do young actors more good than if she was some product of some studio marketing tv shows or movie for young teens.

This wouldn't surprise me. There were times when we first learned of who would (and who wouldn't) be involved with this production that I thought it could very well end up being terrible. The footage has been mostly encouraging to me, but even then, the highest my expectations have gone this whole time has been, "Could be good, but probably not as good as the first." If it meets those expectations, I'll be quite happy. Because I consider the first to be a great movie - one of the best of the genre - and matching that level quality was a pretty tall order from the get-go. If this falls short of that, it certainly doesn't mean I won't still find it to be good or enjoyable.

True, I think the child stars who rise to fame as representatives of a corporate brand (like Disney or Nickelodeon) have the odds stacked much more against them than someone like Chloe does.

Be warned, I think that first one contains a somewhat significant spoiler for the end of the film (and deviation from the comic).

Cast interview:

I didn't notice a spoiler.

But I still cannot shake how bland it looks visually. Everything is so brightly lit it could be a sitcom. There is no depth to it visually.

Oh well. I did like that bit about Moretz kind of subtly insulting Carrey for trashing the movie. Well done.
What did she say?

Excited! I bought two tickets to the Fan First Screening of Kick-Ass 2 on August 14, but saw the listing and all mention of it removed from Fandango's website a few days ago.

I just got this email response from Fandango:

Quote:
Dear Valued Customer,

Thank you for your recent purchase of tickets to the Fan First Screenings for KICK-ASS 2 on August 14th. We are pleased to let you know that due to the overwhelming positive response from our early press screenings for the film, we have decided to show the film to fans earlier than originally promoted. We will now hold screenings on August 12th instead of August 14th and we will no longer be charging for these screenings. As a result, you will be receiving a refund of what you paid for the screenings on the 14th.

In addition to the reserved seat, you will also receive the limited edition poster (and all for free!).
We appreciate your understanding of the date change and refund. Please let us know if you have any questions.

Sincerely,

Century Theatres and Universal Studios
I get to see it even two days earlier, but I still have the suspicion that it did not sell well and that is why they canceled it. I just hope it was because of the $25 ticket price and not because the movie has no interest.

According to fandango, the movie is 1hr 47 minutes. How disappointing if true.

Yeah, what's wrong with over 90 minutes for an action comic book movie? We don't need introductions anymore so we can cut through all of the fat and get to the stuff people want to see. HitGirl to kick some ass.

It is only 10 minutes shorter that Kick-Ass, but I guess because of trends like the Dark Knight Trilogy people think each movie must be longer than the previous. I will be happy if it is true to comics (which it seems to be already), just as good as the first if not better, and ChloŽ Grace Moretz steals it just like she did in the first even if she is older and the novelty of a 11 year old assassin superhero has worn off.

Seems like Universal is well aware of this, considering that nearly 3-minute-long full clip they released yesterday of exactly that. I think that's honestly the longest official uncut clip I've ever seen released for a movie, outside of those "Watch the First 10 Minutes" promotions anyway.

Also, that run-time is fine in theory, but I've been reading feedback that thought they tried to cram too much into that time and that it could've used a bit more breathing room. That was only one or two people that mentioned that, though, so who knows.

Well, I definitely am not expecting something as good as the first movie, so my expectations arent exactly high.

I look forward to you review though Spideyfan, and the other reviews which should be coming out soon as well.

I've seen several fan reviews that say, "If you liked the first one, you'll like this one." Which, considering none of them seemed blown away by it, seems like another way of saying, "it's good enough." I'm not expecting it to have the magic of the first one, and I'm certainly not expecting it to be as well-crafted, but I'm still expecting it to be a good time and a solid expansion of these characters and their world.

Holy smokes....it seems like they are releasing every frame of footage for this movie in clips and trailers!

I've avoided almost all of it though, so I'm going in spoiler-free and will see key moments for the first time when I watch the movie. I did read the KA2 comic....but that was before I knew they were doing a sequel. I avoided reading the Hit Girl comic though...it's sitting on a shelf waiting for me after I see the movie.

Pretty much my exact thoughts.

And yes, there is such things as bad publicity. Go ask Bynes or Lohan. Gibson has done so much harm to his career. The guy should be making any films he wants. Now he is struggling to get anything done.
Gibson is a different thing in my mind. He's demonstrated he may be insane and is possibly anti-Semitic. That's not going to help your career in Hollywood.

Carrey gave this movie more pub than it ever would have had. I was almost wondering if it was a ploy by the studio at first.

I think it's impossible to recapture the flair of Kick-Ass.
It came literally out of nearwhere and it's on par with Superman, Batman'89 and Spider-Man.

If the sequel comes close the first one it will be a success.

Also, that run-time is fine in theory, but I've been reading feedback that thought they tried to cram too much into that time and that it could've used a bit more breathing room. That was only one or two people that mentioned that, though, so who knows.
I can't find this clip. Where was it released?
