Woody Harrelson superhero satire Defendor gets a (small) release

Jeez, Woody Harrelson can't get a break, huh? At least not as DEFENDOR. His ZOMBIELAND was a box-office hit and a top-selling DVD, he got an Oscar nomination for THE MESSENGER, and the much-buzzed KICK-ASS is giving serious shine to the superhero satire genre.

Still, Sony is slapping the movie straight to disc in April (despite a strong response at festivals), so the producers doing their own theatrical release of DEFENDOR starting on Friday, February 26th, at Landmark in Los Angeles, and then rolling out from there.

The synopsis: Arthur Poppington (Woody Harrelson) doesn’t need superpowers or fancy toys to fight crime. Armed only with a childlike sense of wonder and his quirky arsenal of cheap, homemade gadgets, he becomes DEFENDOR! He finds an unexpected partner when he rescues and falls for a local prostitute (Kat Dennings). Can the two of them take down the city’s most fearsome crime boss without getting killed in the process?

You can also check out a trailer and behind-the-scenes clip below.

Extra Tidbit: Really, shouldn't Kat Dennings as a prostitute be enough justification for a wide release? Ahem.

Maybe this movie will get the Paranormal Activity treatment and slowly gain momentum into a wide release in theaters.

Looks cool, but it also looks like....

"Blankman 2.0" Which I liked, so I'll give this one a shot.

Looks really good. A whole new outlook on superheroes done in a different way. Also, Woody Harrelson is the man so I see now flaws in this movie whatsoever

I was thinking the exact same thing. Special was dumped onto DVD after sitting in the can for almost two years, and it turned out to be a fairly decent movie.

Wow, the movie looks a lot more cynical than I thought it would be. I'll experiment with it, what the hell? Woody Harrelson should always get the benefit of the doubt.

I've been looking forward to this since I first heard about it last year. I really wish it would get a theatrical release, but I suppose I'll get over it once I pick it up this April.
