Bloody New Clip from James Gunn's Super
10.23.10 by BJSprecher
A new clip from writer-director James Gunn's upcoming violent black comedy, Super, debuted during the 2010 Spike TV Scream Awards and now it has been released online. The independent "superhero" movie about an everyman (Rainn Wilson) who dons a costume to go after the drug dealer (Kevin Bacon) who has seduced his wife (Liv Tyler), has struggled to avoid comparisons to Matthew Vaughn's Kick-Ass, which also features non-powered people in costumes fighting crime, but this new clip shows that the violence in Super is far more realistic and gritty than the stylized violence in Vaughn's movie. Warning: This clip is NSFW!
Super debuted in September at the Toronto International Film Festival and is expected to get a limited theatrical release later this year. Ellen Page, Linda Cardellini, and Nathan Fillion also star.
