A Superhero Horror Movie

Fresh on the back of all the Halloween party pics and that wee issue of those Sick Boy tweets, James Gunn returns to work. I guess Hollywood is different than a normal job, none of us would be allowed back to work after cracking jokes about shagging kids.

This guy…. welcomed back with open arms.

Anyway, he’s made some new movie. Here’s the trailer:

The premise:

Brightburn: a world where someone like Superman is as fallible as the rest of us. It’s the horror-superhero mashup we never knew we needed that begins just like Superman’s origin story, when he crashed to Earth. But as he grows up, things take a much darker turn.”

Elizabeth Banks (The Hunger Games) and David Denman (The Office) star as Superman’s parents. Sick Boy directs.

Brightburn will hit theaters on May 24, 2019.
