‘Code 8’ Trailer: Superpowers Are Outlawed

Vertical Entertainment has just released the official trailer for Code 8, a film that depicts people with superpowers as outlaws.

I have actually been following the development of this film for a few years now. It was originally a short film released in 2016 on YouTube that racked up over 5 million views. It was always the Amell cousins intent for the short to spawn a feature-length film. I’m glad that is finally got made, because it looks pretty entertaining.

Also, I am glad to see Sung Kang in this. I missed seeing his face after he was written out of the Fast & Furious franchise.

Plot Synopsis:

Code 8 is set in a world where 4% of the population is born with varying supernatural abilities, but instead of being billionaires or superheroes, they face discrimination and live in poverty, often resorting to crime. Connor Reed (Robbie Amell), a power-enabled young man, is struggling to pay for his ailing mother’s (Kari Matchett) health treatment. Fighting to earn enough money as a day laborer, Connor is lured into a lucrative criminal world by Garrett (Stephen Amell) who works for Lincoln City’s reigning drug lord, Marcus Sutcliffe (Greg Bryk). Garrett helps Connor sharpen his powers in order to execute a series of crimes on behalf of Sutcliffe, while a militarized police unit, led by Agent Park (Sung Kang) and Agent Davis (Aaron Abrams), hunts them down.

Code 8 hits select theaters and On Demand December 12, 2019.

Are you guys interested in seeing this at all? Or have you had enough of the Amells playing with superpowers on the Arrowverse?
