A trailer has just been released for the upcoming Woody Harrelson dramedy, Defendor. The film centers on a man named Arthur Poppington (Harrelson) who decides to become a superhero to help those in need. He duct tapes the letter D across his chest and attempts to fight crime in his spare time. We’ve previously posted some photos from the film, which looked both sad and hilarious at the same time.
I’m officially ready to view the trailer and watch the Defendor in action…
Defendor will make its debut at this year’s Toronto Film Festival, and is directed by Peter Stebbings. It co-stars Kat Denning’s from Nick and Nora’s Infinite Playlist as Arthur’s prostitute friend, and Michael Kelly from Zack Snyder‘s Dawn of the Dead. You can also catch a glimpse of Sandra Oh from ABC’s Grey’s Anatomy as his therapist. A lot of talented people fill up this cast, so the script must have something good going for it.
My favorite part of the trailer features Elias Koteas. He will forever have a special place in my heart after playing Casey Jones in the live action version of The Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles. He’s such a treat to watch.
What do you think of the first trailer for Defendor?
