Trailer for James Gunn-Produced Superhero Horror BRIGHTBURN Hits Internet Following Brazil Comic-Con

What if Superman and Michael Myers had a baby?

Following its premiere at the Comic-Con Experience in Brazil, a trailer for the James Gunn-produced BrightBurn hit the internet—and it’s unlike anything we’ve ever seen. While Sony, Marvel, and DC have been promising us more horror-adjacent superhero movies for years, this could actually be the first, perfect amalgamation of comic-book fantasy and the darkest aspects of our beloved genre.

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?

BrightBurn was directed by David Yarovesky (TheHive) from a screenplay penned by Mark Gunn and Brian Gunn. The film stars Elizabeth Banks (The Hunger Games, Pitch Perfect), David Denman (13Hours, Power Rangers), Jackson A. Dunn (Shameless), Matt Jones (Mom, Home) and Meredith Hagner (Younger, Set it Up).  James Gunn produces, with executive producersMark Gunn, Brian Gunn, Dan Clifton, Simon Hatt, and Nic Crawley.

Look for BrightBurn in US theaters beginning May 24th,2019.

‘BrightBurn’ Trailer Brings Terror to Superman Mythology

What if a baby from another world, despite the best efforts of his adopted parents, turned out to be a little twisted?  This is the premise of BrightBurn, a horror film produced by James Gunn and written by Mark Gunn and Brian Gunn. Frequent James Gunn collaborator David Yarovesky (The Hive) will direct the film which stars Elizabeth Banks, Jackson A. Dunn, David Denman, Gregory Allen Williams, Matt Jones, Meredith Hagner, and Steve Agee.

The former director of Guardians of the Galaxy, Gunn actually started his career in the horror genre with 2006’s Slither.  He also explored odd super heroes in 2010’s Super, so Gunn is no stranger to either genre, and his role as producer is sure to rub off on his brother (Brian) and cousin (Mark), as well as Yarovesky.

BrightBurn will be released on Memorial Day, May 24, 2019.

[Trailer] James Gunn-Produced ‘BrightBurn’ Looks Like a Supernatural Horror Version of ‘Superman’

Not long before all hell broke loose and he was wrongly demonized (and fired) over tasteless old jokes, James Gunn (Slither, Guardians of the Galaxy) had been hyping up a new horror project he was producing, which was shrouded in secrecy. We later learned that the film was titled BrightBurn, directed by David Yarovesky (The Hive). Today brings the trailer!

Elizabeth Banks stars in BrightBurn, which looks to be a super-villain origin story that takes the core concept of Superman and flips it. In the film, a young boy not of this world is taken in by human parents who believe him to be special. But not all who wear capes are heroes…

James Gunn had announced six months ago, “About a year ago my brother Brian, my cousin Mark, director David Yarovesky, producer Simon Hatt and I started coming up with an idea for a horror film that excited me in a way nothing outside of Guardians has in years – it was personal, and different, and perfectly suited for our times. And, yes, terrifying.”

BrightBurn is set to arrive in theaters on May 24, 2019.

Trailer for James Gunn’s ‘Brightburn’ Penned in for Tomorrow!

We’ll finally see our first footage from the James Gunn-produced horror film BrightBurn tomorrow as Sony Screen Gems promised a trailer in the following tweet. It is set to arrive in theaters on May 24, 2019.

Seemingly related, we learned earlier this year that Gunn was producing an untitled horror film to be directed by David Yarovesky (The Hive), which *could* be the very same project he was set to reveal at SDCC. That film has Elizabeth Banks attached to star, with the script penned by Brian and Mark Gunn.

James Gunn had announced six months ago, “About a year ago my brother Brian, my cousin Mark, director David Yarovesky, producer Simon Hatt and I started coming up with an idea for a horror film that excited me in a way nothing outside of Guardianshas in years – it was personal, and different, and perfectly suited for our times. And, yes, terrifying.”

I expect we’ll have all of our questions answered tomorrow.
