A dark hard-R comedy about DIY superheroes, 2010’s Kick-Ass made less than $50 million domestically. But strong DVD and download sales paved the way for a sequel, in which Kick-Ass (Aaron Taylor-Johnson) joins a team of bargain-bin heroes led by Colonel Stars and Stripes (Jim Carrey). Meanwhile, Hit-Girl (Chloë Grace Moretz) tries to live a post-costume life in high school. ”Her main realization is that there are bad people, whether you’re in high school or whether you’re fighting coke dealers on the street,” says Moretz. The 16-year-old actress says much has changed since she first played the foulmouthed character. ”It’s a lot easier for me to say the bad words in the movie now,” she says, laughing, ”just because I know what they are!”
