Our Daily Trailer: THE RETURN OF CAPTAIN INVINCIBLE

Give us this day our daily trailer! What the world needs now is a shining hero. What the world needs now is a glory man. What the world needs now is a weird campy rock opera superhero parody featuring a singing Christopher Lee as a supervillain.

Alan Arkin as a dried up superhero. Christopher Lee as a singing and dancing supervillain. A government outlawing superheroes plot that would later get used in Watchmen. With songs by the guy who brought us Rocky Horror Picture Show. Directed by the guy who directed The Howling II: Your Sister Is A Werewolf. How have you not seen The Return of Captain Invincible?

Phillipe Mora’s musical superhero parody is surely one of the strangest semi-forgotten movies of the last few decades. I think this huge slice of cheese is ripe for rediscovery.
