It’s the anti-superhero movie.
The James Gunn-produced movie Brightburn puts a rather weird twist to the superhero storyline. If you watch the trailer, you’d realize that this no ordinary superhero movie. If you’re curious about the movie, read on some of these facts before seeing it this week.
James Gunn, who’s widely known for Marvel Studios’ Guardians of the Galaxy franchise, is producing the film.
Brightburn takes on a different take on the Superman storyline: what if an alien being arrived on Earth with the intention of wreaking havoc instead of saving it?
The movie also takes a typical superhero movie and presents it as a horror movie.
With the horror theme in mind, the movie is intended for mature audiences, meaning that this movie isn’t for kids.
In other territories, Brightburn is advertised as Brightburn: Evil is Born to give unfamiliar audiences an idea on what the movie is.
In countries like here in the UAE, we’d be lucky enough to see the movie two weeks ahead of the US. The movie opens this Thursday, May 9th and in the US on May 24th.
