Check Out Antboy, The Latest Danish Superhero

I make no secret of the fact that I’m unimpressed by superhero films. They all seem more of the same thing, and the endless sequels do not inspire great hope for the future of filmmaking. But I have to admit that the trailer for Danish superhero film Antboy intrigues me.

First of all, Antboy is not a millionaire by day, masked crusader by night; nor is he a super-soldier, alien, billionaire-playboy-philanthropist, or angsty-teenager. He’s just a little kid, bitten by a very special ant. He’s also Danish, which is a nice change.

Antboy was directed by Ask Hasselbalch from the books by Kenneth Bøgh Andersen. That doesn’t mean much to American audiences, but the trailer provides a charming glimpse into what we can expect from Antboy - and it is not Kick-Ass. Actually, in appearance it’s far more like Wes Anderson directing a superhero film.
