Currently playing at the Toronto Film Festival, here’s a great clip from James Gunn’s (Slither) dark comedy “Super.” We first saw it at Comic-Con and it just about stole the show and from this clip you can easily understand why. “Super” is currently trying to find a distribution home, but via Twitter last night according to Wilson it may just have.
Here’s the official synopsis:
Frank (Rainn Wilson) is an average guy who transforms himself into superhero The Crimson Bolt after his wife Sarah (Liv Tyler) hooks up with a smooth-talking drug dealer, Jacques (Kevin Bacon). What Frank lacks in superpowers, he makes up for with a trusty wrench in his one-man war on crime. But every superhero needs a sidekick. Enter Libby (Ellen Page), a cute psychopath working at the local comic book store. Transforming into “Boltie”, Libby teams up with Frank to take Jacques down. From the surprising imagination of writer-director James Gunn (Slither) comes Bolt and Boltie, a crazed crime fighting duo for the XBox generation. They’re here to save the day, or at least to beat you up.
The clip is NSFW due to language by the every pixie cute Ms. Page.
