A New Take on The Superhero?
Mark Kermode just reviewed superhero film Brightburn out now in cinemas in the UK for the BBC…
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?
With Brightburn, the visionary filmmaker of ‘Guardians of the Galaxy’ and ‘Slither’ presents a startling, subversive take on a radical new genre: superhero horror.
Produced by James Gunn and Kenneth Huang, Brightburn is written by Mark Gunn & Brian Gunn, and directed by David Yarovesky. Starring ElizabethBanks, DavidDenman, Jackson A. Dunn, Matt Jones and Meredith Hagner, Brightburnwill open at cinemas across the UK and Ireland on 19 June 2019.
