A twisted, funny, high-octane adventure, director Matthew Vaughn brings KICK-ASS to the big screen.
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 (Chloe 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.

In "Clash of the Titans," the ultimate struggle for power pits men against kings and kings against gods. But the war between the gods themselves could destroy the world. Born of a god but raised as a man, Perseus (Sam Worthington) is helpless to save his family from Hades (Ralph Fiennes), vengeful god of the underworld. With nothing left to lose, Perseus volunteers to lead a dangerous mission to defeat Hades before he can seize power from Zeus (Liam Neeson) and unleash hell on earth. Perseus sets off on a perilous journey deep into forbidden worlds, leading a daring band of warriors, including Draco (Mads Mikkelsen), an experienced soldier who encourages the defiant Perseus to make use of his god-given abilities. Battling unholy demons and fearsome beasts, they will only survive if Perseus can accept his power as a god, defy his fate and create his own destiny.

With Lincoln facing an election and his Democrat opponents promising a negotiated end to the war, Sherman determines to break the back of the Confederacy by taking the war not just to the troops defending Atlanta, but right to the doorsteps of the Southern people. In his march across Georgia and sweep through the Carolinas, Sherman brings the western war to the east, just ahead of Lee's surrender to Grant at Appomattox Courthouse.
After Vicksburg, Union forces push on to Chattanooga, an important rail center and gateway to the Deep South. But casualties at the Battle of Chickamauga provoke antiwar riots in New York City and growing anger that so many Northern boys are dying to free African Americans. As Grant travels east to take on Lee, William Tecumseh Sherman assumes command in the West and begins his advance on Atlanta.
President Lincoln's January 1863 Emancipation Proclamation dramatically changes the war's meaning, bringing together the cause of saving the union and the cause of ending slavery. While Robert E. Lee wins victory after victory for the Confederacy in Virginia, the federals are poised to capture what many consider the western theatre's greatest prize: the Mississippi River. But first they must take Vicksburg, the Gibraltar of the West.
Both sides realize a Confederate win at Shiloh would be a giant step towards Southern independence. After early Confederate successes in the battle, Grant rallies his stunned troops, who repulse waves of enemy attacks at a dense thicket dubbed the Hornet's Nest. On Shiloh's second day, Grant goes on the offensive, winning the first in a series of Union victories that sees thousands of slave families start to flee to Union lines.
In the wake of the Confederate victory at Bull Run, Northern hopes for a quick end to the war are dashed, and Union leaders realize that defeating the South will mean taking the fight beyond the Appalachians. In March 1862, Ulysses S. Grant disembarks an army at Pittsburg Landing in Confederate-held Tennessee. Near a Methodist meeting hall called Shiloh - a Hebrew word meaning place of peace - the first epic battle of the Civil War erupts.
