A Supervillian Rises in the Final Trailer for the James Gunn-Produced Brightburn
There are no heroes to be found in the latest trailer for the upcoming genre-bending film.

Brightburn hits theaters later this week and begs an important question. What might the world look like if the young boy who crash-landed on Earth and would later go on to become humanity’s savior, Superman, chose the alternate path of offering mankind death and destruction instead? This is the theme explored in the upcoming James Gunn-produced superhero horror film.
With the hype surrounding this unique mash-up of genres already more powerful than a locomotive, Sony Pictures offered fans one final look before the film takes to the skies later this week. This freshly-released final trailer, hot off the presses, exhibits an exceptionally-twisted and intense bizarro-world view into the age-old hero concept gone wrong. In the era of heroes reigning supreme at the box office, it's about time a villain has risen from the ashes.
The film comes from The Hive director David Yarovesky from a script penned by Gunn’s younger brother, Brian Gunn, and cousin, Mark Gunn. Starring is Elizabeth Banks (Slither, The Hunger Games), David Denman (Outcast, True Detective), and Jackson A. Dunn (Avengers: Endgame, Shameless) as the film’s titular supervillian. Brightburn arrives in theaters this Friday, May 24th, 2019.
