Kick-Ass 2 Blu-ray and DVD Release Details Revealed, Including Alternate Opening


Kick-Ass 2


is coming to DVD and Blu-ray on December 17 so that the lucky so-and-so on your Christmas list can get a little more Motherf---er for the holidays. As with most major releases anymore, it will be available two weeks earlier on digital streaming platforms in HD two weeks earlier, on December 3. In addition to more than an hour of behind-the-scenes featurettes, filmmaker commentary, and extended scenes, the Blu-ray™ Combo Pack also comes with an exclusive alternate opening with an optional commentary by director Jeff Wadlow. As was true with the first film in this franchise, the box office performance wasn't so overwhelming that a sequel is guaranteed, so fans who liked the movie would do well to snatch it up on Blu-ray shortly after release, to give the studio the idea that there's a market for Kick-Ass 3, which is being written right now but has not formally been greenlit. Check out the full specifications below.
