Trailer Debut: Super

“SHUT UP CRIME!” Now there’s a catch phrase we can all relate to. Yep, the superhero film craze seems finally to be finished with its 180 on self-reflexivity. Turning the protractor another six degrees of Kevin Bacon back towards the audience, Super is a superhero flick that looks as though it’s going to implode.

From the trailer alone one could be forgiven for thinking Harvey Pekar had joined forces with Juno, and that the two had stolen outfits and intentions from Big Daddy and Hit Girl and stepped into a high-octane action flick with heart to save the beautiful girl from Empire Records. Oh yeah, and to take on Kevin Bacon. I don’t know what that amounts to exactly but what I do know is that I really want to see it.

Check out the trailer below.

Directed by James Gunn (Slither), and starring Rainn Wilson, Ellen Page, Liv Tyler and Kevin Bacon, Super is due for release in the US on April 1st, but we haven’t heard its Australian release date just yet, so watch this space…

Discuss: Is this just another bandwagon superhero flick or will it really take us in a new direction?
