If you were wondering if Rainn Wilson’s Super movie was going to be any good, here’s a clip from the movie that shows the dark comedy that is ready to be unleashed onto the world.

SUPER is the story of Frank Darbo (Rainn Wilson), a cook in a local diner, who loses his wife Sarah (Liv Tyler) to a glamorous drug dealer, Jacques (Kevin Bacon). Armed with only a pipe wrench, Frank decides to dress up as a superhero, the Crimson Bolt, to fight the injustices in the world he can’t seem to overcome in his own life. Along the way he teams up with Libby (Ellen Page), a nymphomaniac, sociopathic 22 year old comic book store clerk, who becomes his ultraviolent “kid sidekick” Boltie. Together they fight true evil – people who butt in line, sell pot, or key the sides of cars – and, eventually, they take on Jacques and his other gangsters to save Frank’s wife.

I’m on board.

      Hopefully a full image of it will be released online to print up, I’d love to stick one on my wall along with a bunch of other movie, comic or TV related posters/signs/etc that look like something from in the world of the movie/comic/TV world (Like the District 9 signs, Xavier’s Institute diploma from an old “Wizard”, etc).

      The trailer was entertaining enough and the movie sounds like it’ll be fun.

    This seems like a comedic “Kick-Ass” but it might be worth checking out, esp. for a nympho Ellen Page!

    I am not a big fan of people thinking its okay to crack people in the head with metal pipes, yeah he deserved getting his nuts kicked into his throat but eventually the line between ‘deserved it’ and ‘because I felt like it’ gets blurred.

    Definitely want to watch it. As for hitting the guy with a wrench,I don’ know, i think he should just have hit him with a wiffle bat or something.
