James Gunn Takes The Super Hero Genre In A Whole New Direction – A Trailer Debuts For ‘BrightBurn’

James Gunn knows horror – no question there – he also has had a rather celebrated foray into the super hero genre so who better to marry the two then the man himself.  

He manages to do just that in BrightBurn, a film hitting this coming Memorial day – he produces with David Yarovesky directing from a story written by Mark Gunn & Brian Gunn. The parallels to the Superman story are rather obvious but most certainly take a turn to the dark-side.

Here’s the official synopsis:

“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 of Guardians of the Galaxy and Slither presents a startling, subversive take on a radical new genre: superhero horror.”
