Both catalog titles are expected to hit the 4K format this October.
In an early announcement to retailers, Lionsgate is preparing 'Kick-Ass' for 4K Ultra HD Blu-ray on October 3.
Dave Lizewski (Taylor-Johnson) is an ordinary teenager who goes unnoticed in high school until he takes a chance to "do something" and dons a mask and becomes "Kick-Ass" to fight real-life crime. Bruised and beaten and without any real super powers, he is saved by a father-daughter duo (Cage as "Big Daddy," Moretz as "Hit-Girl") who know all the right moves and have a vendetta against a vicious crime lord, D'Amico (Mark Strong). After a fiery internet storm of publicity for Kick-Ass, D'Amico wants to meet the masked man, and his son (Christopher Mintz-Plasse) dons a costume of his own and becomes "Red Mist" to befriend him and get in his father's good graces. The story comes to a head when D'Amico succeeds in luring the crime fighters to his home and ass-kicking destruction ensues.
The release will feature a Dolby Atmos soundtrack and special features include: "A New Kind of Superhero: The Making of Kick-Ass" 4-Part Documentary; "It's On! The Comic Book Origin of Kick-Ass" Featurette; Audio Commentary with Writer-Director Matthew Vaughn; Marketing Archive; Ass-Kicking Bonus View Mode (Blu-ray Disc Exclusive) – Synchronous with the feature film, this innovative multi-media presentation incorporates video and audio commentary, behind-the-scenes clips and illustrative graphics with Co-Writer/Producer/Director Matthew Vaughn, plus cast and crew providing an all-access perspective on Kick-Ass; and "The Art of Kick-Ass" Gallery.
'Warm Bodies 4K' will also be available on the same date.
A funny new twist on a classic love story, Warm Bodies is a poignant tale about the power of human connection. After a zombie epidemic, R (a highly unusual zombie) encounters Julie (a human survivor), and rescues her from a zombie attack. Julie sees that R is different from the other zombies, and as the two form a special relationship in their struggle for survival, R becomes increasingly more human – setting off an exciting, romantic, and often comical chain of events that begins to transform the other zombies and maybe even the whole lifeless world.
The release will feature a Dolby Atmos soundtrack and special features include: Audio Commentary with Screenwriter/Director Jonathan Levine and Actors Nicholas Hoult and Teresa Palmer; 9 Featurettes; Deleted Scenes with Optional Audio Commentary by Director Jonathan Levine; Gag Reel; and Theatrical Trailer.
Suggested retail price for each release is $22.99.
