    I've made no secret of my love for Kick-Ass but its performance at the box office has been somewhat disappointing. It didn't turn out to be a huge hit that some, including Lionsgate, had been hoping for. That being said it is already profitable and cruising to a respectable take.

CLINT is a new magazine being spearheaded by Mark Millar who created...

    Kick-Ass was able to scrape by How to Train Your Dragon for the top spot at the box office this weekend. The comic book adaptation pulled in just under $20 million, beating out Dragon by just $200K. That movie continues to drop at an extraordinarily low rate as word of mouth has carried it well since release. Kick-Ass hopes for similar results in coming weeks. The internal multiplier (Friday vs the weekend total) for Kick-Ass was 2.64 which is encouraging for a movie of this nature and show...

    As most every movie fan can attest to there are times when high levels of anticipation can lead to eventual disappointment. Having read all the great early buzz for Kick-Ass I entered with the concern that this would be the case here. Those high expectations though turned out to be far exceeded. Kick-Ass is a fantastic blend of a comic book vibe with heavy action and explicit violence,  plenty of laughs, and genuine emotional pull. (more…)...
