Sony Pictures Entertainment has released a new trailer for Brightburn, a superhero horror flick.
The movie comes from producer James Gunn (Guardians of the Galaxy, Slither), and offers a twisted take on the superhero tale. It tells a Superman-like story of a young boy with super powers from another planet who ends up on Earth. But as he discovers his special gifts, he passes up the opportunity to do good with them and instead opts for very dark deeds.

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?

The screenplay was penned by James Gunn’s brother Brian Gunn and his cousin Mark Gunn, who previously co-wrote the screenplay for Journey 2: The Mysterious Island.
