Scream Awards 2010 First Look clips: SUPER and AVATAR
If there is one thing that sets the annual Scream Awards apart from other awards shows, it is the numerous pieces of footage that are aired during the show, broadcasted on Spike TV.
This year was no different. With footage shown for films like SCREAM 4 and TV shows like The Walking Dead, the Scream Awards are like an annual genre-focused Comic-Con, all stuffed together over the span of one awards show.
Two clips in particular from this year are worth focusing on.
First, we got our first real clip from the upcoming James Gunn-directed superhero film, the impending IFC release SUPER. The clip shows Rainn Wilson, whose character takes up a superhero persona when his wife leaves him for a drug dealer, as he deals with a “line cutter” while waiting for an event. The clip looks to show the tone of the film, which appears to be very dark, and yet with a comedic sense of timing and tone. The epitome of a dark comedy, the film looks visually straight forward, which for a film like this, could prove to be just the type of style it needs.
Finally, in a much less interesting piece of footage, we got a new deleted scene from the upcoming AVATAR DVD/Blu-ray release, and it sees Sam Worthington’s character getting into a scuffle in a bar, only to be tossed out. The scene is a pitch perfect example of everything wrong with that visually impressive, but blunt-object-to-the-head of a film it truly was. However, for fans of Cameron’s anti-subtle filmmaking, this may be the exact thing you will want to hold you over until the new DVD/Blu-ray set hits on November 16.
