Kick-Ass movie synopsis: Kick-Ass tells the story of average teenager Dave Lizewski (Aaron Johnson), a comic-book fanboy who decides to take his obsession as inspiration to become a real-life superhero. As any good superhero would, he chooses a new name -- Kick-Ass -- assembles a suit and mask to wear, and gets to work fighting crime. There’s only one problem standing in his way: Kick-Ass has absolutely no superpowers.
His life is forever changed as he inspires a subculture of copy cats, meets up with a pair of crazed vigilantes -- including an 11-year-old sword-wielding dynamo, Hit Girl (Chloë Grace Moretz) and her father, Big Daddy (Nicolas Cage) -- and forges a friendship with another fledgling superhero, Red Mist (Christopher Mintz-Plasse). But thanks to the scheming of a local mob boss Frank D’Amico (Mark Strong), that new alliance will be put to the test.Box Office: The film earned over $12 million internationally in advance of opening in the United States. On its debut weekend in the United States, it took in $19.8 million in 3,065 theaters, averaging $6,469 per theater. Kick-Ass was reported #1, ahead of How to Train Your Dragon by $200,000, which was in its third week of release. These numbers for Kick-Ass's debut weekend gross included non-weekend earnings, as the film was previewed during the Thursday night prior to its release. This has led to the speculation that How to Train Your Dragon would have been #1 for the weekend of April 16 had these earnings not been counted. The opening week numbers were considered by some analysts and the media to be a disappointment, though by others to be fairly solid. The film's final gross in the U.S. was $48,071,303 and $47,960,570 outside of the U.S.
