Plot Summary

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? With Brightburn, the visionary filmmaker of “Guardians of the Galaxy” and “Slither” presents a startling, subversive take on a radical new genre: superhero horror.

“BrightBurn” is directed by David Yarovesky (The Hive). Cousins Mark Gunn and Brian Gunn (Journey 2: The Mysterious Island) wrote the script. Elizabeth Banks (The Hunger Games franchise) stars alongside David Denman (Power Rangers), Jackson A. Dunn (Showtime’s Shameless), Matt Jones (AMC’s Breaking Bad) and Meredith Hagner (TBS’ Search Party). “Guardians of the Galaxy” director James Gunn serves as producer with executive producers Mark Gunn, Brian Gunn, Dan Clifton, Simon Hatt, and Nic Crawley. The H Collective financed the film and produced alongside Gunn’s Troll Court Entertainment. Sony’s Screen Gems will distribute “BrightBurn” domestically in theaters on Memorial Day weekend, May 24 2019. “BrightBurn” will open against Disney’s live-action “Aladdin,” Warner Bros.’ video game adaptation “MineCraft” and Fox’s “Stuber,” starring Dave Bautista.
