BRIGHTBURN - Final Trailer.
In 2006, a spaceship crash-lands in Brightburn, Kansas, on a farm owned by Tori and Kyle Breyer (David Denman), who have been having difficulties conceiving a child. Inside the ship is an infant child that the couple adopts and name Brandon. They hide the spaceship in their barn's cellar to hide the truth from him.
12 years later in 2018, the ship begins transmitting an alien message, drawing Brandon to it. He sleepwalks to the barn and tries to open the locked cellar, chanting the craft's message, but Tori intervenes and takes him back to the house. The next day as he attempts to mow the lawn, Brandon has difficulty starting the lawnmower and inadvertently launches it into the air, tossing it more than away. He approaches it, as it is overturned and still running. Curious about his newfound abilities, he stops the motorized blade with his hand.
Brandon displays extremely high intelligence at his school, which other students tease him about, but a girl named Caitlyn consoles him. While celebrating Brandon's 12th birthday at a diner where Caitlyn's mother Erica is the waitress, his parents' friends Noah and Merilee gift him a hunting rifle, which Kyle refuses to let Brandon have. Brandon insists he should have the rifle and acts insolently, causing a scene, so Kyle and Tori take him home immediately. The next morning Kyle suspects something is wrong with Brandon when he finds him absentmindedly chewing and mangling his fork at breakfast. Tori finds photos of lingerie and swimsuit models, surgical diagrams, and graphic photos of human organs in Brandon's room.
