‘Brightburn’ Trailer Puts a Horror Twist on Superman

Produced by ‘Guardians of the Galaxy’s’ James Gunn

Sony Pictures has released the first trailer for its upcoming horror film Brightburn. The opening scene of the movie offers a familiar superhero narrative where a couple living on a pastoral farm, played by Elizabeth Banks and David Denman, witness the collision of a spaceship from another planet. Their prayers are answered when the aircraft contains a baby and they adopt him as their own.
Instead of becoming a superhero dedicated to helping mankind analogous to Superman, the plot takes a dark turn as the child starts using his powers to harm people. The film opens up a genre of “superhero horror” which presents a subversive take on prevalent comic book tropes. Produced by Guardians of the Galaxy director James Gunn, catch Brightburn in theaters starting May 27, 2019.
