IFC have bought the US distribution rights to James Gunn’s dark superhero comedy Super, Deadline have confirmed.

Super premiered during Friday’s Midnight Madness at the 35th Toronto International Film Festival where it received a lot of buzz from critics and audiences alike.

The film stars Rainn Wilson, Ellen Page, Liv Tyler, Kevin Bacon, Nathan Fillion and Linda Cardellini.

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 superhero named “Boltie” and becomes Frank’s sidekick. The two then team up to take Jacques down.

The US distribution deal is said to be in the seven figures. No word on an official release date yet but a new clip appeared on the site earlier to give you idea of what to expect. Click here to see it.
