This Week’s New DVDs: December 9 2013

The brilliant, but very violent Kick-Ass 2, family adventure The Croods, horror smash hit The Conjuring and buddy cop comedy 2 Guns are among the new releases to hit DVD shelves this week.

 

Kick-Ass 2

Aaron Taylor-Johnson returns as the bungling wannabe super hero and reunites with Chloe Moretz's Hit Girl to do battle with his old nemesis, newly christened as The Motherf****r and his elite band of villains. It's darkly comic, very violent, but tremendous fun. You can check out our preview feature here. 

 

The Conjuring

Vera Farmiga and Patrick Wilson star as paranormal investigators Ed and Lorraine Warren who are brought in to get to the bottom of some mysterious goings-on at a old farmhouse in Rhode Island. It took over $300 million at the box office and scared the wits out of plenty of people throughout the summer. Read all about the film in more detail here. 

 

The Croods

Nicolas Cage, Catherine Keener, Emma Stone and Ryan Reynolds lend their voices to this animated adventure about a family trying to survive in the prehistoric age. We preview it in full here. 

 

2 Guns

Denzel Washington and Mark Wahlberg star as a DEA agent and a naval intelligence officer find themselves on the run after a botched attempt to infiltrate a drug cartel. Full of laughs and loud bangs.
