Its initial trailer really had us intrigued and Brightburn looks like an incredible new twist on the superhero genre and now director David Yarovesky has granted us another look into the film with a brand new image.
The image comes to us courtesy of the film’s official Instagram account and showcases the film’s titular character Brandon Breyer / Brightburn (Jackson A. Dunn), cloaked out in his make-shift costume and looking all kinds of evil.

The teaser made for a very unsettling watch, and really shined a light on what looks like a magnificent performance from Elizabeth Banks as Brandon’s traumatized mother and with James Gunn (Guardians of the Galaxy) involved in the project you know that there will be plenty of surprises for us waiting here.
Here’s the official synopsis:
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?
We’re excited to see where we go to next with Brightburn and it will be a damn scary watch when it arrives in cinemas on May 24, 2019.
