Superhero Horror Film ‘Brightburn’ Flies Home in August

From executive producer James Gunn, this year’s evil Superman movie Brightburn arrives on 4K Ultra HD, Blu-ray, DVD, and Digital in August, from Sony Pictures Home Entertainment.

What if a child from another world crash-landed on Earth, but instead of becoming a hero to mankind, he proved to be something far more sinister? With Brightburn, the visionary filmmaker of Guardians of the Galaxy and Slither presents a startling, subversive take on a radical new genre: superhero horror.

The release promises to be loaded with jaw-dropping bonus content, including three vignetts, two featurettes, and a feature length filmmaker commentary(!).
