Brightburn Trailer: The James Gunn-Produced Superhero Horror Film

The May 2019 release stars Elizabeth Banks

Following its debut at Brazil’s Comic Con Experience (aka CCXP), Sony Pictures‘ Screen Gems and The H Collective have brought online the first Brightburn trailer, previewing the superhero horror movie opening in theaters on May 24, 2019. James Gunn (Guardians of the Galaxy films) and Kenneth Huang produced the film.

Directed by David Yarovesky (The Hive) from a script by Gunn’s brother, Brian Gunn, and cousin, Mark Gunn, Brightburn stars Elizabeth Banks, David Denman, Jackson A. Dunn, Matt Jones and Meredith Hagner.

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.

The executive producers are Mark Gunn, Brian Gunn, Dan Clifton, Simon Hatt, and Nic Crawley.

“We are proud to debut this trailer first to the fans! It’s even more poignant as we celebrate the one-year anniversary of The H Collective,” said The H Collective CEO Nic Crawley. “We’ve assembled a remarkably talented team with James and Dave, bringing this project to life has been nothing short of fantastic. We’re extremely proud of our partnership with Sony and look forward to sharing this film with audiences around the world.”
