Since movies about superheroes seem to get a lot of traction at the box office here’s an under-the-radar movie having a limited theatrical release this Friday, October 19 called Alter Egos. It’s written and directed by Jordan Galland and stars Kris Lemche, Brooke Nevin and Joey Kern. The movie was produced by Keven Smith’s SModcast Pictures which is the first time it has ever affiliated itself with a film that Smith had not written and directed. Now you might be thinking what more can we do with superheroes? This movie seems like it would be a mix between Kick-Ass and Watchmen and I’m going to check around this weekend to see if any theaters are showing it here in Las Vegas. Even though this movie probably will pose no threat as competition to movies like Paranormal Activity 4 and Alex Cross also releasing this Friday but does it have the potential to be a movie gem? Check out the trailer and let me know what you think!
Storyline(IMDB) - At a time when superheroes have lost government funding and public support, a superhero meets a girl who can help him overcome his own emotional crisis.
