James Gun’s new horror take on Superman Brightburn just got a new trailer with a slew of new footage.
Brightburn is based on an idea that Gunn co-created with his brother Brian and cousin Mark. The latter pair went on to write the film’s actual script, with Gunn producing and his trusted collaborator David Yarovesky (the Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 “Inferno” music video) calling the shots as director. Sony dropped the first Brightburn trailer during the movie’s CCXP panel, but hasn’t done a whole lot of marketing for the horror-thriller since then. That changes today, with the release of some additional footage.
The newest trailer gives us a better look at how people react to Brandon Breyer (played by Jackson A. Dunn) before he discovers his abilities, and it’s not so great. That only gets worse though as he figures out what he can do, which as we see here is quite a lot. After he figures it out though, it’s open season on those who would torment him, and sadly even those who’ve never met him.
Brightburn is directed by David Yarovesky and is written by Mark Gunn and Brian Gunn, with James Gun, Kenneth Huang producing while Mark Gunn, Brian Gunn, Dan Clifton, Simon Hatt, and Nic Crawley are executive producing. The film stars Elizabeth Banks, David Denman, Jackson A. Dunn, Matt Jones, and Meredith Hagner.Brightburn hits theaters on Memorial Day, May 27th.
