DALLAS // PRNewswire-FirstCall // -- Topping the BLOCKBUSTER® (Pink Sheets: BLOKA, BLOKB) Hit List of "Top 10 Renting DVD Titles" for the week ending August 8, 2010 is "Kick-Ass." Dave Lizewski is an average high school nerd and devout comic book lover with few friends. Wondering why there aren't more superheroes and inspired by his comic book collection, Dave makes the simple decision to become Kick-Ass, a superhero with zero powers and no experience. Dave quickly discovers he's not the only superhero out there. Directed by Matthew Vaughn (Snatch) and staring Aaron Johnson (The Greatest) and Nicolas Cage (Leaving Las Vegas), Kick Ass is the ultimate David and Goliath showdown.
