Sparks Trailer

"1948 - I remember that year well… It was the year I met her… And it was the year a serial killer came to my town." Today's indie trailer is for a dark superhero or super powers action-thriller titled Sparks, from co-directors Todd Burrows & Christopher Folino. Up-and-coming actor Chase Williamson (John Dies at the End and "Video Game High School") plays Ian Sparks, a masked vigilante who "discovers the dark side to heroism." IMDb's synopsis leaves out the super-powered group Rochester 13, but they're in this trailer. The cast includes Ashley Bell, Clancy Brown, Jake Busey, William Katt, Marina Squerciati. I'm curious about it.

Watch the official trailer for Todd Burrows & Christopher Folino's Sparks, in high def from Apple:

"Supers like me had kept this town safe…" After a radioactive meteor strikes Earth, a genetically altered group, known as The Rochester 13, gain astonishing, superhuman powers. Ian Sparks (Williamson) doesn't feel remotely super. But after his parents' death, he throws himself into battle against the criminals plaguing the mean streets of New York. Teaming up with, and falling hard for, the beautiful Lady Heavenly (Bell), the unstoppable duo quickly decimates the city's army of thugs. But when they tangle with the nation's most twisted arch-villain, they end up losing everything—including each other. Sparks is co-directed by Todd Burrows & Christopher Folino (Gamers) from a script & graphic novel by Folino. In limited theaters now.

Some shots look really cheap, but at the same time other aspects look awesome. I'll give it a try. I love seeing what people can do with low-budget superhero films.

Although I'd welcome a new superhero film, not done in the "same old" way, I get the impression that this film is not it. I guess the film makers out there don't know how to make uplifting films about heroism, they're all bred and brought up on dark drama and the madness of villains like the killer Joker. When films are more depressing than anything one experiences on the news or in real life, it is time to stop going to the movies.
