Definitely off to a great start - the LA Times says
COMIC-CON 2010: 'Super' makes a swell start
It's a great article:
http://latimesblogs.latimes.com/herocom ... tart-.html
and highlights the "underdog" status of the movie which should help it along :cheekygrin:
The makers of “Super” came to the fan boy gathering in very different circumstances: trying to make ends meet.
Most Hall H panels focus on big-budget studio spectacles with million-dollar stars, but Friday’s presentation for “Super” was a study in the opposite extreme.

Thanks Jim for the LA Times article. I hope the good publicity helps Super get a distribution deal. I wished Kick-Ass did better box office, it would have helped Super get a distrib deal. I know those comparisons will always be there....oh well. I liked those kind of off-beat Superhero films

Kick-Ass didn't exactly do badly at the box office. It had a budget of $28 million and the Worldwide Gross was $95,739,032. Pretty successful, a net profit of about $70 million is solid and with a recognizable name like Ellen Page attached to a similar movie it could make some solid money. It may just have to go the route of getting a distribution deal at an indie movie festival, but all that matters is it comes close enough to me that I can see it and that it makes decent money.
