Watch: Trailer for Superhero Indie 'Vs' with Lucas Till & James Remar
"You can't save everybody, man." Time for some indie wackiness in the form of a trailer for a film titled Vs, mashing up Kick Ass (or Super) and Saw, plus an evil Uncle Sam with a flamethrower, for some weird dark, superhero drama. Lucas Till (from X-Men: First Class) stars as "Cutthroat", who gets captured and forced to save innocent civilians in some villain's twisted game. James Remar also stars as Rickshaw, along with Sean Whalen, Nick Principe, Sophie Merkley, Jason Trost. I honestly can't say it looks good, but intriguing at the least. It's premiering at the Toronto After Dark Fest and AICN debuted this new trailer and a poster.
A terrifically dark and twisted tale about four superheroes abducted by their arch-nemesis and forced to compete in a series of challenges in order to save an abandoned town full of kidnapped innocent civilians.
Vs (Versus) is both written and directed by young filmmaker/actor Jason Trost (who always wears an eye patch), director of the cult comedy The FP previously which was based on his own short. This latest film is premiering at the Toronto After Dark Film Festival this year, starting later in October (for more info). It's also looking for a US distributor, so we'll have to keep you updated on an eventual release. Worth seeing?
