Extended Trailer and Poster for James Gunn's Superhero Horror Film BRIGHTBURN
An extended trailer has just been released for James Gunn’s highly anticipated superhero horror film Brightburn. This is the movie that tells an origin story much like Superman’s, only instead of a hero bringing hope and inspiration to the world, it’s a young bullied villain who relishes in bringing death and carnage.
The film comes from director David Yarovesky from a script written by Brian and Mark Gunn. It looks like the creative team is going to give us a crazy-ass story filled with some pretty jacked up moments.
Here’s the synopsis for Brightburn:
What if a child from another world crash-landed on Earth, but instead of becoming a hero to mankind, he proved to be something far more sinister? With Brightburn, the visionary filmmaker of Guardians of the Galaxy and Slither presents a startling, subversive take on a radical new genre: superhero horror.
Brightburn stars Elizabeth Banks, Meredith Hanger, David Denman, Matt Jones, Gregory Alan Williams, Jennifer Holland and more.
Brightburn hits theaters on May 24th, 2019. I also included a poster that you can see below the trailer.
