Check out the latest trailer (via) for Peter Stebbings’s “Defendor”, starring Woody Harrelson as a slightly delusional — okay, the guy’s pretty much off his rockers — civilian who decides to make himself a homemade costume and fight crime. Sounds familiar, right? It’s kinda like Matthew Vaughn’s “Kick Ass”, but whereas that movie will be hitting theaters April 16, Peter Stebbings’ “Defendor” will be going straight-to-DVD. On the plus side, Stebbing’s movie will be landing in videostore shelves on April 13, a full three days before “Kick Ass” arrives in theaters, so there’s that.
A crooked cop, a mob boss and the young girl they abuse are the denizens of a city’s criminal underworld. It’s a world that ordinary Arthur Poppington doesn’t understand and doesn’t belong in, but is committed to fighting when he changes into a vigilante super-hero of his own making, Defendor. With no power other than courage Defendor takes to the streets to protect the city’s innocents.
Starring Woody Harrelson, Kat Dennings, Elias Koteas, Sandra Oh, Lisa Ray, Michael Kelly, Charlotte Sullivan, Kristin Booth, Tatiana Maslany, Lyriq Bent, and directed by Peter Stebbings.
