It kinda resembles her broken image of who she wanted her son to be. While also resembling a comic book panel.


It's possible that "doing good" for him means removing what his race see's is an infesstation (others races such as us) to make the planet free real estate for his kind.

To each their own then. I feel becoming evil because you were bullied or an outcast is honestly generic and cliche that's been done already. The Halloween remake for one already did that.

That way I feel by doing the whole Michael Myers approach it gives out more eerie mystery to it such as maybe this is in his species nature hence the theories viewers could come up with like being the vanguard of an alien invasion or tradition his species does by sending their own children to other planets to take over.

Plus the potential that overtime as he begins showing his sinister ways the more his appearance degrades into a more alien-like appearance and maybe even something creepy as The One and Only proposed.

I may have been wrong about Brandon morphing, devolving into something nasty. Or nastier. The "proboscis" may have been just the stitching on the lad's hood. Using something thick like shoe laces, or bailer twine for it. In some ways this flick reminds me of the 1982 horror flick, The Beast Within.
Which dealt with a kid who comes down a mysterious illness just a few days shy of his eighteenth birthday. The same kid was the product of his mother being raped by an unknown individual when she ,and her husband ran out of gas on a remote country road. Basically, the kid was transforming into, both mentally and physically, into the thing that assaulted his mother. But the idear of Brandon switching to some pre-programed mission during the field incident when knocked down could. Like the lad in The Beast Within when he hit eighteen. Or the IRON GIANT, when the title character saw his friend maimed. The giant alien war machine switched over to World Devastator mode when angered. Also, I wonder if the flick might focus more on Elizabeth Bank's character. A bit blind to the seed of evil in the boy she raised. Even covering up some of Brandon's more odd activities. Warned by everyone the boy ain't right, Ignoring, not willing to believe it until it's too late. I also wonder if the ship, vehicle that brought him to the world, might be doing something else than relay instructions. Maybe building something ?

I mean hey it looks good and I’ll probably like it, but is there any particular reason this has gained so much hype and online buzz?

So does anyone want to discuss the possibility of an expanded superhero horror cinematic universe? I think these would work as great evil expy's for Batman and Wonder Woman.

Batman: The Bruce Wayne expy becomes a brutal serial killer that hunts down the poor, blaming them for his parent's death. He uses his vast resources to help him do this. So evil Batman is a batpoop insane serial killer that targets poor people.

Wonder Woman: Amazonians being pirates who rapes sailors and then disposes of them in order to reproduce while using their children who are male for slaves.

Aquaman: Basically Creature from the Black Lagoon. Killing those at all costs said Aquaman expy sees as a threat to his kingdom which would be basically anyone in the ocean from swimmers, fishers and workers out at sea.

While I think this is the wrong thread to post this, it does sound interesting.

Break every bone in the girl's hand I could see happening. Anything more dramatic, or gruesome, would result in Brandon getting hauled off to jail. Reform school to say the least. Especially in this day and age. Breaking some bones in the lass' hand could be explained off the result of a kids will be kids, after being bullied by the mean girl.

Tru.

Edgy I know I just want this to be hardcore R as possible given the potential. :lol:

They didn't punk out with Georgie in IT (2017) hopefully they do the same here. Difference would be they're surrounded by people so I'd love to see everyone's reactions to Brandon crushing her hand possibility bloodying it too in the process with exposed bone showing.

Ugh, I don't want to see any children gore. That's just not for me, and I'm a guy who believes filmmakers shouldn't hold back on most things. Emphasis on most.

I hope the story's good.

As someone who normally hates superhero movies, I have to say, I’m actually kinda excited for this.

I hope the reason this kid is so evil is actually interesting and not this isn't just your average "The Omen" type evil child. It would be one thing if the kid was raised by two abusive parents but even then not everyone who comes from a broken home becomes a homicidal maniac. Plus from what I've seen in the trailers his parents are good people. Personally I think he's not a "real" person. I feel like he's biological weapon sent to Earth as an attack or act of war. Kinda like The Iron Giant but without the soul.

I just watched this film, let me just say ''Take the world'' haha once you watch the film you will actually get that line.
Such a good film, what would happen if Superman was evil? This pretty much answers the question.

The cast was all good, especially the kid. He was absolutely brutal to those that got in his way. At only 90 minutes long this film is short and straight to the point which only makes it better as it doesn't drag. Much better then I could have predicted for sure.
On a personal note, I just got to say Elizabeth Banks is one beautiful woman..

No dogs or cats die so you can rest easy with that, but chickens do.
