What happens when you have a desire to present something innovative with superhero movie genres? Well, it results in Brightburn! Produced by the 'visionary director' of Guardians of the Galaxy, James Gunn the movie is an innovative mashup of two different genres. It revolves around a superhero but there's a twist to it. The boy in question here is evil and the makers are toying around with the idea of selling it as a horror movie. Sounds interesting, eh? Well, it surely is. Instead of calling it an evil superhero movie, we prefer to tag it as Superman but evil! Why Superman? Well, that's simply 'cos there's so much similarity between them. James Gunn's 'BrightBurn' Gets New Release Date.
Brightburn's new trailer is scarier than the previous one as it establishes a horror plot conveniently. Elizabeth Banks plays a mother to a child (Jackson A. Dunn) who lands on Earth under mysterious circumstances. Yup, just like our beloved Kryptonian. However, the boy has an evil side to him and that aggravates when he's bullied by his fellow classmates in the school. Though he's raised like an ordinary child, he can't run away from his own dark thoughts. Once acquainted with his superpowers, the child starts enjoying his evil side, making the scenario scarier and grittier than before.
