A new trailer for "Kick-Ass 2" is here, though it doesn't offer much more than what we saw in the red band clip released in March.

Despite the familiar territory, it's fun to see our heroes back in action, and the new promo offers plenty. Hit-Girl (Chloe Grace Moretz) taunts Kick-Ass (Aaron Taylor Johnson) to punch her before beating the crap out of him. Col. Stars and Stripes (Jim Carrey) shows up and promptly bashes a baddy's brains in with a baseball bat.

"Try to have fun," the colonel implores the gang. "Otherwise, what's the point?"

Christopher Mintz-Plasse is back as the bad guy, trading his Red Mist moniker for a new profanity-laced identity (you'll have to check out the red band clip for that), and he's still bent on taking down Kick-Ass and company as one of the world's first real supervillains. Good thing Kick-Ass has some impressive new abs to help him out.

It might not offer anything new aside from the scrubbed-up language, but the trailer still amps up the excitement for the follow-up to the 2010 original. "Kick-Ass 2" is due in theaters August 16.
