Defendor trailer premieres online

If you’re looking forward to Kick-Ass , chances are you’ll like the look of Woody Harrelson’s new flick as well.

That’s because Defendor takes the same central conceit (anybody can be a superhero) and stretches it into a daft-looking comedy.

A new trailer for the film has been released, and it’s definitely a less colourful version of Kick-Ass (both in terms of visuals and language).

But we’re loving Harrelson at the moment (especially after Zombieland ), and when you’ve got Sandra Oh in the cast line-up, you know you can expect some good times.

Check the trailer out below this plot synopsis:

Reality intersects with delusion in the mind of Arthur Poppington (Woody Harrelson), a regular man who adopts a superhero persona known as Defendor, and combs the city streets at night in search of his arch-enemy, Captain Industry.

In his attempts to combat crime and bring down Captain Industry, a drug and weapons dealer who he mistakenly blames for the death of his mother, Defendor ends up befriending a young prostitute, Katerina Debrofkowitz (Kat Dennings).

Armed with unconventional weapons of mass confusion, aided by his new friend, and putting his life on the line, Defendor proves that everyone is capable of making a difference.

Fancy more Harrelson being dumb? Or will you skip this for Kick-Ass ?
