Another trailer just got released for Kick-Ass on the heels of the clip from last week showing Nicolas Cage engaging in the most spectacularly dysfunctional parenting ever. The new trailer is basically all Hit Girl, with just a one line appearance by the eponymous Kick-Ass.

Wow. At least 90% of the entertainment value there is the simple juxtaposition of a 12 year old girl with ultra violence and swearing, but damned if it isn’t entertaining even while conscious of that. I’m not sure if that factor can stay fresh and entertaining for an entire film, but since she’s not the primary protagonist maybe it won’t be an issue.
