Brightburn: Watch A Harrowing Scene From Guardians Of The Galaxy Director's Superhero Horror Movie

Brightburn hits theatres this month.


Guardians of the Galaxy director James Gunn's next movie is the superhero horror film Brightburn starring Elizabeth Banks (The Hunger Games) and David Denman (The Office, Big Fish). The film follows the story of a child who crash-lands on Earths and is adopted by the characters played by Banks and Denman, Tori and Kyle. They recognize his super-abilities and try to raise him to use them for good. But he doesn't. Instead, he wreaks havoc on a small Kansas town, and people aren't happy about it.

Brightburn comes to theatres later this month, and GameSpot can exclusively reveal a new clip from the film today where we see actor Matt Jones (Breaking Bad) enduring a harrowing visit from the young man, Brandon, who is played by Jackson A. Dunn. Check out the clip in the embed above.

Now Playing: Brightburn - "Wrecked" Clip

Brightburn opens May 23 in Australia and then a day later on May 24 in the United States over the Memorial Day weekend. It was directed by David Yarovesky (The Hive) with a script by James Gunn's brothers Brian and Mark Gunn. James Gunn and Kenneth Huang served as producers.

Here is the full plot description for Brightburn: "After a difficult struggle with fertility, Tori's dreams of motherhood come true with the arrival of a mysterious baby boy. Brandon appears to be everything Tori and her husband Kyle ever wanted-bright, talented, curious about the world. But as Brandon nears puberty, a powerful darkness seems to manifest within him, and Tori becomes consumed by terrible doubts about her son. Once Brandon begins to act on his twisted urges, those closest to him find themselves in grave danger, as the miracle child transforms into a vicious predator unleashed on an unsuspecting Kansas town."
