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.

Brightburn is an upcoming 2019 American superhero science fiction horror film produced by James Gunn and Kenneth Huang. It is directed by David Yarovesky from a screenplay by Mark and Brian Gunn, and stars Elizabeth Banks, David Denman, Jackson A. Dunn, Matt Jones and Meredith Hagner. It is produced and financed by Screen Gems, Stage 6 Films, Troll Court Entertainment and The H Collective, and will be distributed by Sony Pictures Releasing.
Brightburn was announced as an "untitled James Gunn horror project" in December 2017, shortly before Gunn was forced out by Disney from the upcoming Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3, only to be reinstated. Gunn was attached as producer, with his brother Brian and cousin Mark writing the script. Principal photography began in March 2018 and filming wrapped in May of that same year.
The film is scheduled for release in the United States on May 24, 2019.
