This past weekend the internet was blessed with the first trailer for Super, James Gunn’s low budget comedy about a man who takes justice into his own hands.
The more I see of this film, the more I believe it is going to blow Kick Ass out of the water. For a start Kick Ass didn’t have Kevin Bacon or Ellen Page.
Originally I was going to dissect the trailer, something we haven’t done in a while, but it’s something you really need to watch to appreciate. My highlight is the fact that a wrench is his main weapon.
Coming next year, perhaps, is another film about an ordinary guy turned realistic masked superhero, only this time it’s going to be even less slick. Excitingly this film has just found a distributor so will hopefully be heading our way soon.
Super comes from the mind of James Gunn, the man who brought us the gory Dawn of the Dead remake and brilliantly horrific Slither and is going to be better than Kick Ass. Come on, this one has Kevin Bacon!
Super also stars Rainn Wilson, Ellen Page, Liv Tyler and Nathan Fillion. The clip below should give you a good idea of what to expect.
