Disc News: Kick-Ass to put the Hit(-Girl) on Blu-ray

On August 3rd, Lionsgate Home Entertainment will release the soon to be cult-movie Kick-Ass on DVD and Blu-ray.

Released last Spring, Kick-Ass was a modest (if slightly less than expected) hit among audiences. Expect the film to find a much wider appreciation and fanbase when it arrives on home video this fall.

Based on the comic book by Mark Millar and John S. Romita Jr., the film stars Aaron Johnson as a teenage looser who decides to buy some sporting equipment and become a superhero. Christopher Mintz-Plasse, Mark Strong, Nicholas Cage and Chloe Moretz also star. Matthew Vaughan directed.

The Blu-ray/DVD/Digital Copy combo pack will feature the following special features:
