Ordinary people facing extraordinary circumstances from the mob and thieves could certainly be the theme for this week's announcements. If they didn't also have to face diplomats, vengeful animals, a dimension of sight and sound and Tyler Perry.

The fanboys will be excited this week as Matthew Vaughn's Kick-Ass comes to DVD & Blu-ray on Aug. 3 from Lionsgate. Special features on the DVD will include commentary and a featurette on the comic's origin while the Blu-ray will add feature-length making-ofs and an "Ass-Kicking Bonus View Mode." That same day Summit will debut Roman Polanski's acclaimed The Ghost Writer, presumably with no ass-kicking or bonus views of any kind.
