If you ever wondered what would happen if you mixed Superman with a horror-thriller, you might want to give “Brightburn” a try. The new movie is coming out this May, and Sony Pictures has a new video to entice fans. This is the second official trailer that Sony Pictures has released for the film, which offers thriller fans something to look forward to this Spring.
The studio teased the movie on social media asking “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?”
The movie stars Elizabeth Banks, David Denman, Jackson A. Dunn, Matt Jones, and Meredith Hagner. David Yarovesky directed the film for the studio, working off a script written by Mark and Brian Gunn.
“Brightburn” is opening in theaters against the James Gray sci-fi thriller “Ad Astra” with Brad Pitt, and Disney’s live-action adaptation of “Aladdin.” That’s the same weekend that Olivia Wilde’s comedy “Booksmart” hits theaters. That film stars Will Forte, Lisa Kudrow, and Jason Sudeikis. These films will have to battle the previous week’s releases, which include “John Wick Chapter 3,” “A Dog’s Journey,” and “A Sun is Also a Star,” which could split the box office during “Brightburn’s” crowded release.
The week following “Brightburn’s” release isn’t any easier, with “Godzilla: King of the Monsters,” “Ma,” and the musical “Rocketman” hitting theaters nationwide.
Elizabeth Banks recently voiced the role of Wyldstyle in “The LEGO Movie 2,” a film that has already made over $153.7M worldwide. Banks also directed the new “Charlies Angels” reboot, which she will star in as Bosely. The Angels will be played by Naomi Scott, Kristen Stewart, and Ella Balinska. The reboot is also from Sony Pictures and is currently scheduled to hit theaters on November 1, 2019.
“Brightburn” will release in theaters on May 24, 2019.
