This is the first full trailer for Defendor, from Canadian writer/director Peter Stebbings, about a wannabe superhero, starring Woody Harrelson and Kat Dennings (who, sidenote, might be dating Baby Goose).
Reality intersects with delusion in the mind of Arthur Poppington (Woody Harrelson), a regular man who adopts a superhero persona known as Defendor, and combs the city streets at night in search of his arch-enemy, Captain Industry. In his attempts to combat crime and bring down Captain Industry, a drug and weapons dealer who he mistakenly blames for the death of his mother, Defendor ends up befriending a young prostitute, Katerina Debrofkowitz (Kat Dennings). Armed with unconventional weapons of mass confusion, aided by his new friend, and putting his life on the line, Defendor proves that everyone is capable of making a difference. [via Twitch]
This doesn’t look very good, but then, what does nowadays? If I were writing a movie about a confused super hero, I would make his super power sniffing glue, and his costume a pair of dirty hammer pants with his weiner hanging out. He’d run around town stealing peoples’ babies because he was convinced everyone else was unfit. Then he’d hoard them, and raise them in a tiny shed hidden behind some undergrowth in his backyard, where they’d grow up malnourished and understimulated. The story wouldn’t have a message and it would just be sort of confusing and sad, but that’s life. Then I would make a movie about one of the shed babies, and I would call it Danny Masterson.
