'Super' Dated for Blu-ray

Posted Tue May 31, 2011 at 08:00 AM PDT by

Another action-packed superhero comedy will come to the rescue of Blu-ray this August.

In an early announcement to retailers, MPI has slated 'Super' for Blu-ray on August 9.

When sad-sack loser Frank (Rainn Wilson, 'The Office'), a short-order cook, sees his ex-addict wife (Liv Tyler, 'The Lord of the Rings') willingly snatched away by a seductive drug dealer (Kevin Bacon), he finds himself bereft and unable to cope. But he decides to fight back under the guise of a do-it-yourself superhero called Crimson Bolt.

With a red hand-made suit, a wrench, a crazed sidekick named Boltie (Ellen Page, 'Juno') - and absolutely nothing in the way of superpowers - Crimson Bolt beats his way through the mean streets of crime in hopes of saving his wife.

Specs and supplements haven't been revealed yet, but suggested list price for the Blu-ray is $29.98.
