I asked James if he saw himself working with Ellen (and Rainn) again. His response:

That'd be awesome, he's definitely my favorite person Ellen's worked with so far, he makes the connection between himself and his fans so personal.

You only have to look at the size of this "SUPER Updates" thread to see how much James has shared with us about creating SUPER since December '09. I'm not aware of any other director that has used the social networking tools as much as James. It makes an interesting contrast with Woody Allen who won't even confirm the title of his upcoming movie :yuck:

Off-topic, but he has only mentioned the title in one phone interview and it may be just a working title. He's refused to give the title or any other information in any other interviews - that was my point.

James Gunn shared some good news by answering my question about the profitability of SUPER:

Also, from his Twitter:

"Just got the news that SUPER got huge numbers on V.O.D. Thanks so much to everyone who's out there watching it!"

EDIT: Also don't know if anyone cares, but I downloaded the Super facebook app onto my computer and I was able to rip from the flash file the image of Ellen that was used for the Boltie poster. So if you wanted to see how she looked before they put the mask on...

Super's apparently the most successful VOD title ever for IFC.

If you live in LA you may want to check this out:
http://www.jamesgunn.com/2011/04/28/mee ... elicacies/
Meet James Gunn, SUPER’s Tyler Bates, Michael Rooker, & Tsar This Sunday at Dark Delicacies!

Wow! We’re going to have a little SUPER celebration this Sunday night at Dark Delicacies – the world’s coolest horror and fan store in Los Angeles.

That’s right, 7 pm, this Sunday, May 1st.

SUPER composer Tyler Bates (who has also done the scores for Slither, Dawn of the Dead, 200, Watchmen, Suckerpunch, and more!) will be on hand to sign SUPER soundtracks, which should be for sale at the store. Tyler is also going to be giving away signed sheet music from Dawn of the Dead to the first 50 folks who show up

The Doug Loves Movies podcast is actually amazing. I'm finally seeing SUPER on Monday in London too.

And also, I was lucky enough to be one of the winners on the Ain't It Cool News competition so there's a signed SUPER poster on it's way to me. :D
In the country dead bodies live in swamps and ditches and shallow graves. A man dumps the body of a girl in a ditch. The body rotts melts into slime. Flowers pop up where the body lies, seeds fly out of the flowers and a bee sucks the flowers and makes honey. Then the family of the girl buys the honey from the store. And the family eats the girl.

James Gunn answered my question on Formspring yesterday:
James Gunn wrote:Any updates on the SUPER DVD/Bluray release?
Nope! It will probably be the end of summer. We're getting all the extra features together now - a commentary by me and Rainn, extra footage of Ellen and Rainn, behind the scenes doc, cut scenes, and a bunch of other stuff.
This is definitely a must-own for me whenever it comes out. :totalhappy:

:D I can finally fulfil my life long dreams of seeing it again! I'll most likely have to go into London again but it's a price I'm willing to pay.
