Rainn Wilson stomps through “Super” – SXSW

By Sean O’Connell James Gunn’s homegrown superhero story is generating buzz ahead of its South By Southwest screening next week.

The dark comedy, which premiered at last year’s Toronto film fest, has been compared (favorably) to “Kick-Ass,” and boasts a healthy 71-percent grade on Rotten Tomatoes. It’s going to expand on April 1, but before that, it will have a splashy screening in Austin, with the director and his cast in tow.

And in preparation for that, IFC has released a full trailer for the flick. We have it below.

Rainn Wilson stars in Gunn’s comedy as a sad-sack who invents his own crime fighter – the Crimson Bolt – when his wife (Liv Tyler) leaves him for a more interesting dude (Kevin Bacon). Ellen Page joins the fun as Bolt’s kid sidekick.

You definitely can see the similarities to “Kick-Ass,” which also held a premiere at SXSW last year. “Super” might have been wise to create a little distance between itself and Matthew Vaughn’s dark flick. I’m anxious to see how different they are.

“Super” plays SXSW next week, then opens in select markets on April 1.
