Actuals report that the predicted second-place finish by Kick-Ass didn’t quite materialize. Instead of getting slightly beaten by How To Train Your Dragon by a margin of a million or less, Kick-Ass managed to eke out a $200,000 margin of victory over the animated DreamWorks release. In so doing Kick-Ass and the Lionsgate team have just barely saved face — fine. The bottom line is that Matthew Vaughn‘s satiric comic-book actioner did semi-respectably, but did not whoop or kick ass by any stretch of the dictionary.
