The movie stars Rainn Wilson, Ellen Page, Liv Tyler, Kevin Bacon, and Michael Rooker. The plot follows Frank (Rainn Wilson), an average guy who transforms himself into the superhero "The Crimson Bolt" after his wife Sarah (Liv Tyler) hooks up with a smooth-talking drug dealer, Jacques (Kevin Bacon). What Frank lacks in superpowers, he makes up for with a trusty wrench in his one-man war on crime. But every superhero needs a sidekick. Enter Libby (Ellen Page), a cute psychopath working at the local comic book store. Transforming into "Boltie", Libby teams up with Frank to take Jacques down. From the surprising imagination of writer-director James Gunn (Slither) comes Bolt and Boltie, a crazed crime fighting duo for the XBox generation. They're here to save the day, or at least to beat you up.
Super premiered at the Toronto International Film Festival, where it garnered rave reviews and was quickly acquired by IFC Films.
