This year sees a good number of initially successful animation flicks making a comeback for the second time round with hopes of a hugely successful pay-off and franchise gold in future… Despicable Me 2, Monsters University make up that batch, followed later on in the year by Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs 2. Speaking of which, here is it’s official synopsis and international trailer below:

In the wake of the disastrous food storm at the end of the first movie, Flint Lockwood and friends are forced to leave their town of Swallow Falls.  But when it is discovered that sentient food beasts have overrun the island, they are asked to return to save the world…again. Collider

What you think? Good enough to gobble up your cash at the cinemas?

Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs 2 hits theaters this September.

Kick Ass 2

Moving things from the family-friends, laugh-inducing genre of animations, we kick down the doors and hurl you into the world of Kick Ass 2.  The sequel is building up momentum, focusing on that corner niche of the film market that loves its fair share of crude humor, profanity, blood, broken bones and viral videos. Infact two viral videos since we have already gone down that path…

Join Justice Forever! Don’t let the dickheads, who follow @TheMotherF_cker, take over!

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 (Chloe 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.” Collider

Kick Ass 2 kicks ass across theaters this August 😉
