Horror thriller film Brightburn is set for an early release in Pakistan.
The movie was due to come out in the United States on 24th May. However, given the interest of Pakistani cinema goers in Ramzan, the local distributors in charge of Brightburn have decided to release the superhero-horror movie a week earlier. In fact, you can watch it today in select theaters.
The movie is being distributed by HKC Entertainment in Pakistan.
Here’s the trailer for the much-anticipated movie:
About The Movie
Brightburn is hoping to blend two genres together – superhero movies with horror (like X-Men’s New Mutants). The film has been produced by Sony Pictures and Guardians of Galaxy film-maker James Gunn.
Brightburn stars Elizabeth Banks and Jackson A Dunn in main roles.
The plot basically follows the story of ‘what if an extra-terrestrial raised on Earth turned out to be bad‘ (think an evil Superman).

The world is not a pretty place. If it can produce sociopaths amongst humans, then surely we have it within us to do the same to an extra-terrestrial migrant from outer space.
“I want to do good, mom. I do.”
Our hearts and hands are busted making this movie for you guys. Join us in watching it on Friday, May 24, in theaters everywhere. pic.twitter.com/aBA84Gg4Hn
