Brightburn Trailer

"I will never turn against our son." Sony Pictures has debuted the second official trailer for a superhero horror film titled Brightburn, a new film from director David Yarovesky. Produced by James Gunn, the film is being described as "a startling, subversive take on a radical new genre: superhero horror." It's a bit like the famous comic Superman: Red Son - 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? And it also is a bit like Chronicle, but with a much darker spin. Elizabeth Banks stars, along with David Denman, Jackson A. Dunn, Matt Jones, and Meredith Hagner. After this first trailer and this one, I have to say this looks awesome. So freaky and intense and just the right amount of darkness, I don't even know how this got made.

Here's the second official trailer for David Yarovesky's Brightburn, direct from Sony's YouTube:

You can watch the first official trailer for Yarovesky's Brightburn here, to see the original intro again.

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? With Brightburn, the visionary filmmaker behind Guardians of the Galaxy and Slither presents a startling, subversive take on a radical new genre: superhero horror. Brightburn is directed by up-and-coming filmmaker David "Yarvo" Yarovesky, his second feature film after directing The Hive previously, as well as some short films and music videos. The screenplay is written by Mark Gunn & Brian Gunn; and it's produced by James Gunn & Kenneth Huang. Sony will release Yarvo's Brightburn in theaters everywhere starting May 24th coming up this summer. How freaky does that look?

This looks so awesome, but dang it I wish I hadn’t watched this trailer as I agree - it shows WAY too much.

I would like to complement you on your use of Calvin. That was my favorite strip as a kid.

WHERE'S KRYPTONITE WHEN YOU NEED IT?!? This looks pretty insane. Idk if I can handle it though, that frigging glass in the eye thing was a bit too much for this guy...

It is unavoidable to have a story like this. And to that I can only say, finally. Although, even I'm fed up with goodies among those super-meta-or-whatever-people, I also don't really can see any point in baddies. Less black or white perspective would be more appropriate. So, I'm interested in the end of this story. The trailer was cool ...

Bright...Burn...Hmmmmmm.....it's all a bit silly to me along with Ms. Banks whom I avoid at all cost. And why was the little red eyed twit after that innocent waitress? What's with that? Sheeeeet...never mind...I don't care...lol...

Clearly, you didn't see that the waitress was the mother of the bully. the mom who wanted him in cuffs.

Guess I didn't. Thanks for enlightening me. Must be difficult for me to pay close attention to such silliness. Still, thanks for informing me as I do like to be informed rather than not. Cheers. p.s. I viewed it again and am not sure the woman at the police station or office wanting him handcuffed is the same woman as the waitress. Is it? Are you sure? I can't believe I even am communicating about it as I don't care...except want to know the truth or justification or reason or whatever...I obsess about such things...lol...Cheers again!

When it is done right this type of movie will be great. I don't think this one is going to be that movie.

Looks interesting. I've always been fascinated by the idea of a superhero that wants to do good but is 'turned' by the petty squabling and bullying that he/she sees around them. So that the audience is still kind of sympathetic to the character but understands why they have gone off at the world. Where they start off good but are slowly corrupted by the world affecting those closest to them until they literally go supernova at a world that they think is no longer worth saving/protecting. This could be particularly well played in today's obsession with social media. To be fair that is how I thought Man of Steel might have gone. How might have Superman have faired if he didn't have a Facebook page, wrote an inappropriate Tweet or wasn't behind the very latest PC posturing cause.

Thanks for saying this is a bit like “Chronicle”. Yeah, yeah, it’s (obviously) closer to Supes, but at the same time, it’s a bit of a misnomer to say this is a “superhero horror” film, let alone the start of a whole new “genre”, altogether. What we have here is an asshole kid who just so happens to have super powers, nothing more, nothing less, hell, if anything it could just be the origin story of a super villain.
