Defendor Trailer

The new take on super hero flicks stars Woody Harrelson as Defendor, a nocturnal vigilante hell-bound on catching a villain named Captain Industry (obviously!). He has no super powers and uses only his wits to prevent crime.

Historically, satirical super hero movies haven't done super well, but I'm looking forward to seeing what this might have to offer. According to DontCThis, 'Defendor' is coming to the Toronto Film Festival later this month. put it succinctly when they previewed the movie last year:

Defendor - only the second superhero movie ever to be named after an anti-vandalism product following 1995 flop FAAC 615 Hydraulic Barrier Gate Operator - will be written and directed by Peter Stebbings, who has some experience with the genre, having acted in an episode of short-lived 2003 X-Men rip-off Mutant X. Gray's Anatomy's Sandra Oh will also appear in the film, as Harrelson's psychiatrist, alongside currently-hip actor Kat Dennings, who'll play a teenager who befriends Harrelson's character.
