“BRIGHTBURN”

The Fresno Bee (Sunday) - - Movies This Week -

She’s been spend­ing time lately as a gameshow host on ABC’s “Press Your Luck,” but El­iz­a­beth Banks is still very much in the busi­ness of mak­ing movies ... as the writer and di­rec­tor of a forth­com­ing “Char­lie’s An­gels” re­boot, and also as the star of this thriller. She plays half of a Kansas cou­ple who take in a boy who fell to Earth, a young alien who grows up to be a pos­si­ble men­ace by us­ing his su­per­hu­man abil­i­ties against oth­ers. Jack­son A. Dunn plays the older in­car­na­tion of the young­ster, with David Den­man and Mered­ith Hag­ner also ap­pear­ing. “Guardians of the Galaxy” film­maker James Gunn was a pro­ducer of the pic­ture, which was writ­ten by his brother Brian and their cousin Mark. DVD ex­tras: two “mak­ing-of” doc­u­men­taries; au­dio com­men­tary by di­rec­tor David Yarovesky, cin­e­matog­ra­pher Michael Dal­la­torre and cos­tume de­signer Au­tumn Steed; “Quick Burns.” ★★★ (R: AS, P, V) (Also on Blu-ray and On De­mand)
