Shut up Crime! IFC Films has finally debuted the poster (via IMPAwards) for James Gunn's action-comedy Super, which premiered at the Toronto Film Festival last year. I've seen the film and although I had mixed feelings (review here) I'm actually excited for it to come out, it's fun as hell and I knew the marketing would be awesome. Super stars Rainn Wilson as a guy who becomes the Crimson Bolt! With a hand-made dark red suit, pipe wrench and a sidekick named Boltie (Ellen Page) the Crimson Bolt beats his way through the mean streets of crime in hopes of saving his wife. This poster is a great way to build some buzz. Check it out!
When his wife (Liv Tyler) falls under the influence of a ruthless drug dealer, an everyday guy (Wilson) transforms himself into the Crimson Bolt, a superhero with good intentions, though he lacks heroic skills.
Super is both written and directed by St. Louis, Missouri-born filmmaker James Gunn, of the horror movie Slither previously as well as the "PG Porn" webseries. This is Gunn's second feature film and it premiered at the Toronto Film Festival last year, where we saw it - watch out review. The film was picked up by IFC Films for US distribution. Super will be hitting theaters starting April 1st this spring. Hope you guys are excited!
Looks good. Simple and eye catching. And I imagine it fits the tone of the film as well.

The film, or the poster?

The poster looks more like a rip off of the cover for the book King Dork. and i'll hold my thoughts until a trailer hits.

Kick-Ass for hipsters.

What does that even mean? Kick-Ass WAS for hipsters. That movie wasn't made for the die-hard fan of the graphic novel but for the hipsters that cling to all the "cool" graphic novels i.e. Watchmen, Scott Pilgrim, etc.
