James Gunn is always one to mix up genres and he’s offering his audience something fresh, different and extremely twisted with his new superhero horror film Brightburn.
The new trailer has just arrived and it is incredibly freaky. Check it out below:
Here’s the full 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?
While Gunn is onboard Brightburn in the role of producer, it’s David Yarovesky who takes on the directors mantle here and he does a magnificent job of focusing in on the terror that arrives on earth in the form of a child with super abilities.
Along with it’s frightening concept, Brightburn also features a terrific performance from Elizabeth Banks who takes on the role of Tori Breyer, the adopted mother of Brandon Breyer who despite her son’s sinister impulses still tries to lead him towards the light….at a terrible cost.
Brightburn looks like a fiendishly good horror movie and will definitely appeal to long time fans of comic book films that are looking for a sizeable twist. It will be released in cinemas on May 24.
