Trailer Of The Week - Defendor

Birdman has had substantial attention this week, after its première at The Venice Film Festival. It fits loosely into the series of films that could be called 'when superheroes meet the real world' and, though Birdman seems to take a slightly different route to exploring the interaction between the real world and the make believe, it did get me thinking about Defendor. Similarly to Birdman, it's a film in that sub-genre that has a lot of time for the psyche (or psychosis) of a superhero and how that might impact or relate to the real world. It also has a surprising gut punch and when you look at the list of big names that feature in the trailer, it surprises me that it didn't get more attention at the time. One to go back to in the pre-Birdman days.
