An extended trailer for James Gunn’s highly anticipated superhero horror film Brightburn is released. This is the movie that tells an origin story much like Superman’s, only instead of a hero bringing hope to the world, it’s a young dominated villain who likes in bringing death and destruction.
The movie 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 powerful story packed with very serious 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.
