"No matter where you go, there you are."


Joe Manganiello is an inter-dimensional superhero in the dark and twisted trailer for Archenemy

This looks weird and wonderfully dark.

Adam Egypt Mortimer brought us the excellent Daniel Isn’t Real. His next film is called Archenemy and stars Joe Manganiello, Joseph D. Reitman and Mac Brandt.

Max Fist (Manganiello) is a hero from another dimension who fell through time and space and landed on Earth. No one believes his stories except for a young kid named Hamster. Together they fight drug dealers and their boss ‘The Manager’ to help take back their city.

Adam Egypt Mortimer had this to say about the film and working with Joe Manganiello.

It’s still something that I created; it’s about a very disturbed character who is really haunted and traumatized, and Joe was pretty remarkable [at playing that]. For a guy who’s known for being so handsome and so charming to come in and be this really gnarly person, it was an interesting challenge for him, and he’s an exceptional actor. I’ve been finding and understanding – this being my third movie – working with actors who really want to find an opportunity to do something deep, and appreciate through what I’m trying to do with them, is the greatest part about what I’m doing as a filmmaker.

“Archenemy is about finding the heroes amongst us, and within us, something that I think everyone can relate to in today’s world,” said Voltage CEO Jonathan Deckter. “We’re thrilled to add this fun, action-packed superhero to our diverse lineup and are excited to work with Adam [Egypt Mortimer] and SpectreVision on our second film to bring this dynamic duo to the streets, and to our partners around the world.”

Thanks to Alan for the sending it over.

The trailer was a Variety exclusive.
