Gathering buzz from its showing at SXSW James Gunn’s Super is looking very interesting indeed.
Two clips, one from Twitch and the other from Coming Soon, should be just the ticket if you’re till not on board the Super train, be warned though – the second clip is all kinds of nasty, making the final meal scene from Ridley Scott’s Hannibal look like an entrée.
Directed by James Gunn, Super stars Rainn Wilson, Ellen Page, Liv Tyler, Kevin Bacon, Nathan Fillion and Linda Cardellini, and has this for a synopsis,
After his wife Sarah (Tyler) hooks up with a smooth-talking drug dealer named Jacques (Bacon), Frank (Wilson) transforms himself into superhero “The Crimson Bolt”. Then with the help of a trusty wrench, Frank wages a one man war on crime. Libby (Page), a local comic book store employee, transforms herself into a superheroine named “Boltie” and becomes Frank’s sidekick. The two then team up to take Jacques down.

Repeated warning – this clip’s not nice to watch while having dinner, or even planning to eat dinner in the next few hours. Warning over, click away.
