Super trailer online

Super.jpgThe idea of Super is exciting, a man loses his girlfriend to a drug dealer and so in his darkest moments, he decides to become a superhero to fight crime, and the man himself, and win her back.

The execution? Well I'm not so sure. How far is this going to walk from Kick-Ass and how good will it end up being? The trailer's here to tell us just that.

Here's the plot for Super which comes from writer and director James Gunn and looks to be as violent and as funny as Kick-Ass, but perhaps not as slick, but then it stars Rainn Wilson, Ellen Page, Liv Tyler, Kevin Bacon and Gregg Henry, surely that's a sign of a strong film there?

In the outlandish dark comedy Super, James Gunn has created what is perhaps the definitive take on self-reflexive superheroes. When sad-sack loser Frank (Rainn Wilson) sees his ex-addict wife (Liv Tyler) willingly snatched by a seductive drug dealer (Kevin Bacon), he finds himself bereft and wholly unable to cope. But, inspired shortly after by fictional man-made superheroes of lore, he decides to fight back under the guise of a DIY crimefighter, the Crimson Bolt. With a hand-made suit, a wrench, and a crazed sidekick named Boltie (Ellen Page), the Crimson Bolt beats his way through the mean streets of crime in hopes of saving his wife.

I wonder if we're going to see the usual tale of redemption here? From the trailer it looks like the character is going to lose himself a little and might just get caught up in violent retribution.

You can see the trailer over at Apple Trailers in high definition along with a clip from the film.
