Watch The Creepy Superman Inspired Horror Trailer For The James Gunn Produced, “Brightburn”

What If Superman was a horror film?

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?

The trailer plays like a Zack Snyder Man of Steel trailer. Everything from the way its shot to the choice of awe-inspired Hans Zimmer-esque music playing in the background. Until the trailer takes a left turn and the Superman-like child turns out to be homicidal alien.

How director James Gunn got the okay from DC Comics to produce this film is beyond me. Perhaps Gunn is getting a pass because he is working on the sequel to Suicide Squad.

The film is directed by David Yarovesky and stars Elizabeth Banks, David Denman, Matt L. Jones, Jennifer Holland, and Jackson A. Dunn. The film is expected to debut in theaters May 24th, 2019.
