Check Out the First Trailer for Super, Rainn Wilson's Superhero Dark Comedy

Here's the first trailer for Super, James Gunn's dark comedy starring Rainn Wilson about a man who hits rock bottom and decides to become an ultra-violent super hero. Here's the official synopsis:

After his wife Sarah (Liv Tyler) hooks up with a smooth-talking drug dealer named Jacques (Kevin Bacon), Frank (Rainn Wilson) transforms himself into superhero “The Crimson Bolt”. Then with the help of a trusty wrench, Frank wages a one man war on crime. Libby (Ellen Page), a local comic book store employee, transforms herself into a superheroine named “Boltie” and becomes Frank’s sidekick. The two then team up to take Jacques down.

Look for it in theaters on April 1st.

    How is this different from Kick-Ass? I will see it though :)

    It kind of looks way better than Kickass. Kickass wound up being kind of creepy and sad.
    I was gonna be there anyway, but it actually looks quite funny AND OMG NATHAN FILLION. I am a simple creature.

    this looks like the movie I wanted Kick Ass to be. That is a good thing.
