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.
