'Kick-Ass 2' Hits Blu-Ray, DVD This December

Did you miss Kick-Ass 2 when it arrived in theaters last August? Never fear: the adventures of the world's greatest makeshift superheroes should arrive on home video this December.

According to the official press release from Universal Studio Home Entertainment, the physical copies of writer-director Jeff Wadlow's sequel are presently slated to hit retail shelves on December 17. However, a high-definition digital copy arrives on December 3.

If you've bid farewell to packaged media forever, then you're going to miss out on quite a few special features. The Kick-Ass 2 Blu-ray features several extended scenes, commentary from Jeff Wadlow, and hours of behind-the-scenes featurettes.

Surprisingly, fans who purchase the flick on DVD aren't getting seriously shortchanged. Although the Blu-ray features plenty of exclusive content, folks who haven't made the jump to high-def aren't getting unfairly punished for their decision.

Wadlow's sequel continues the adventures of Kick-Ass and Hit-Girl. Although the two remains friends following the shenanigans found in the original movie, Hit-Girl is forced to retire after she's caught sneaking out to fight crime. With nowhere left to turn, Kick-Ass hooks up with the superhero collective known as Justice Forever.

The official plot synopsis continues:

"Just as they start to make a real difference on the streets, the world's first super villain, The Mother F***er, 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."

Despite a strong promotional push ahead of its release, Kick-Ass 2 couldn't match the success of Matthew Vaughn's 2010 action flick. According to Box Office Mojo, the sequel only earned $59 million worldwide. However, the film could rebound on home video.
