‘Kick-Ass 2′ described as “dark” and “often offensive” by Universal
A universal executive has described ‘Kick-Ass 2′ as “often offensive.”
Simon Hewlett, executive vice president of marketing, was speaking to international theatre owners at CineEurope in Barcelona on Tuesday (June 25) about the anticipated action film.
He promised them that the film is a “bigger, badder, more ballsy adventure”.
The talk comes shortly after Jim Carey withdrew his support for the film via his twitter account following the Sandy Hook shooting.
Hewlett didn’t address Carrey’s tweet during his presentation, but did admit that the movie is controversial.
He said: “It’s irreverent, dark and often offensive.”
Kick-Ass 2 is released in cinemas on August 14 in the UK, and August 16 in the US.
