In the coming weeks, the cinephiles of the world are going to have their geek hands full with film openings such as “Spider-Man: Enter The Spider-Verse”, “Bumblebee” and of course “Aquaman”. Will these partakers of exhilarating high adventure and promise be able to handle a superhero/horror film such as “Brightburn”? Let’s take a look at the first trailer from this Sony Pictures feature that will hit hard next May.
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? In this horrific take on the classic superhero trope, a couple adopts a baby who came from the stars. While they attempt to raise the boy to use his powers for good, an evil begins to grow inside that he unleashes.”
Elizabeth Banks as Tori Breyer
David Denman as Mr. Breyer
Jackson A. Dunn as Brandon Breyer
PiercingMetal Thoughts: I have to admit that I am a tad curious about this and if you thought you were imagining the very similar melodies from “The Man Of Steel” and “Superman” films you can relax since you were not having an episode. I am not sure that I like the idea of a Superman style character on a murderous rampage that isn’t being done by Warner Brothers with the real character in some kind of an Elseworlds scenario but with James Gunn as the producer this might just be an unexpected hit. I will monitor the news and information about this one as time goes forward. What did you readers think about this first trailer? You can let me know down in the comments section below.
