#GIVEAWAY: ENTER TO WIN A DOUBLE PASS TO THE TORONTO ADVANCE SCREENING OF “KICK-ASS 2”
UNIVERSAL PICTURES CANADA and MR. WILL WONG are thrilled for the first time to give you the chance to win one of 5 Admit Two Passes to the Advance Promo Screening of KICK-ASS 2 on Wednesday, August 14th 7:00PM at SilverCity Yonge & Eglinton.
We were there on-set last Fall as Kick-Ass 2 filmed in our City and we couldn’t be happier to take you to see the Action-Comedy first! Read about it all here.
Official Synopsis below:
Kick-Ass, Hit Girl and Red Mist return for the follow-up to 2010’s irreverent global hit: Kick-Ass 2. After Kick-Ass’ (Aaron Taylor-Johnson) insane bravery inspires a new wave of self-made masked crusaders, led by the badass Colonel Stars and Stripes (Jim Carrey), our Hero joins them on patrol. When these amateur Superheroes are hunted down by Red Mist (Christopher Mintz-Plasse) — reborn as The Mother F %&*^r—only the blade-wielding Hit Girl (Chloë Grace Moretz) can prevent their annihilation.
When we last saw junior Assassin Hit Girl and young Vigilante Kick-Ass, they were trying to live as normal Teenagers Mindy and Dave. With graduation looming and uncertain what to do, Dave decides to start the world’s first Superhero Team with Mindy. Unfortunately, when Mindy is busted for sneaking out as Hit Girl, she’s forced to retire — leaving her to navigate the terrifying world of high-school Mean Girls on her own. With no one left to turn to, Dave joins forces with Justice Forever, run by a born-again ex-Mobster named Colonel Stars and Stripes.
Just as they start to make a real difference on the streets, the world’s first super villain, The Mother F%&*^r, assembles his own evil League and puts a plan in motion to make Kick-Ass and Hit Girl pay for what they did to his Dad. But there’s only one problem with his scheme: If you mess with one member of Justice Forever, you mess with them all.
Kick-Ass 2 stars Aaron Taylor-Johnson, Chloë Grace Moretz, Christopher Mintz-Plasse, Morris Chestnut,
John Leguizamo, Donald Faison and Jim Carrey.
