Trailer Bulletin: Superhero Movie

Can it be funnier than Ghost Rider?

by | February 1, 2008 | Comments

Judging from Meet the Spartans‘ box-office receipts, you guys just can’t get enough of spoof films — so what time like the present to unveil the trailer for March’s helpfully titled Superhero Movie?

Craig Mazin, whose screenwriting credits include Scary Movie 3 and Scary Movie 4, directed Superhero Movie from a script he co-wrote with David Zucker, who co-directed Airplane! and The Naked Gun. The film’s synopsis follows:

After being bitten by a genetically altered dragonfly, high school loser Rick Riker develop superhuman abilities like incredible strength and armored skin. Rick decides to use his new powers for good and becomes a costumed crime fighter known as “The Dragonfly.” However, standing in the way of his destiny is the villainous Lou Landers. After an experiment gone wrong, Lou develops the power to steal a person’s life force and in a dastardly quest for immortality becomes the supervillain, “The Hourglass.” With unimaginable strength, unbelievable speed and deeply uncomfortable tights, will the Dragonfly be able to stop the sands of The Hourglass and save the world? More importantly, will we stop laughing long enough to notice?

Our initial answer to that last question is “yes, probably,” but you know what? As trailers for spoof films go, this one isn’t so bad. Of course, you can never go too far wrong with a scene involving Leslie Nielsen and a nailgun, but still. Watch the clip below!
