‘Brightburn’ Brings the Evil Superboy Home in August With Filmmaker Commentary Track

While we wait to find out if a potential sequel will take flight, Sony Pictures Home Entertainment has announced that this year’s James Gunn-produced, David Yarovesky-directed Brightburn arrives on Digital August 6 and on 4K Ultra HD, Blu-ray & DVD August 20.

4K Ultra HD, Blu-ray, DVD and Digital bonus features include:

  • 3 “Quick Burns” Vignettes hosted by Actor Elizabeth Banks, Producer James Gunn & Director David Yarovesky
  • “Hero-Horror!” featurette: It’s not often filmmakers successfully and seamlessly combine both Horror and Superhero into a genre-bending “Hero-Horror” category. Hear from Producer James Gunn and Screenwriters Brian and Mark Gunn as we will learn the methods of their filmmaking style and their dotting of the “i”’s and slashing of the “t”’s storytelling process.
  • “Nature vs. Nurture” featurette: Hear from Actor Jackson A. Dunn, Producer James Gunn, Screenwriters Brian and Mark Gunn and understand the creative process involved in flipping the script of the traditional “Superhero” and diving into what motivates and moves our new Anti-hero, Brandon Breyer.
  • Filmmaker Commentary with Director David Yarovesky, DP Michael Dallatorre, and Costume Designer Autumn Steed

The gory super-villain film, starring Elizabeth Banks, David Denman and Jackson A. Dunn, asks a simple question: 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?
