Earlier in summer Brightburn took us all by surprise to become a cult hit “hero-horror” movie. The brilliant mix of superhero origin and classic horror tale proved to be a successful amongst members of both comic book and horror crowds.

Now Sony Pictures Home Entertainment has formally announced the home video release of the movie in North America. Let’s start by taking a look at the cover art for the 4k release:

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.
