This latest trailer showcases the copycat as a boy named Brandon Breyer with a similar story to the Man of Steel. A good-intentioned midwestern couple adopts a child from another planet whose spacecraft lands on their property. However, instead of being the symbol of all that’s good and wholesome in the world, the child ends up a murdering psychopath possessed by a malevolent force.
The footage showcases Breyer before his abilities manifest as a kid bullied in school. However, once he realizes what he can do, he gets back at everyone who tortured him and then some. He even brings down an airplane from the sky.
Brightburn will hit theaters on May 29.
Check out the trailer above, then check out the latest trailer for Tolkien.
