Must Watch: Badass Trailer for Woody Harrelson's Defendor!

A few weeks ago we brought you the first photos from an indie comedy called Defendor starring Woody Harrelson as a wanna-be superhero. The film is premiering at the Toronto Film Festival later this month, and we weren't expecting to see anything from it until after then, but thanks to Twitch we've got the first trailer and holy crap does this look so unbelievably awesome! I was already expecting it to look good, but not this good. Everything about this looks great, the style, the Batman-like feeling, the humor, Woody Harrelson and Kat Dennings, everything! I can't wait to this up in Toronto. Drop what you're doing and watch this!
Watch the first trailer for Defendor:
Reality intersects with delusion in the mind of Arthur Poppington, a regular man who adopts a superhero persona known as Defendor, and combs the streets at night in search of his arch-enemy, Captain Industry.
Defendor is both written and directed by Canadian actor-turned-filmmaker Peter Stebbings, who is making his directorial debut with this film. This will be premiering at the Toronto Film Festival this month where it will be looking for a distributor. It's my guess that this will be picked up pretty quickly, as it looks like it'll play well at the fest and could be easy to market to audiences that are currently infatuated with superheroes.
