[Trailer] Joe Manganiello Claims to Be a Fallen Superhero in Adam Egypt Mortimer's 'Archenemy'


Daniel Isn't Real director Adam Egypt Mortimer is back with his action-thriller Archenemy, and the trailer has arrived today ahead of the film's World Premiere at this week's Beyond Fest.


RLJE Films acquired the film last month and will release it in theaters and on VOD platforms on December 11th, 2020.


In Archenemy, Max Fist (Joe Manganiello) claims to be a hero from another dimension who fell through time and space to Earth, where he has no powers. No one believes his stories except for a local teen named Hamster. Together, they take to the streets to wipe out the local drug syndicate and its vicious crime boss known as The Manager.


Written and directed by Mortimer from a story by Mortimer and Lucas Passmore (No Good Heroes), the film also stars Skylan Brooks ("Empire"), Zolee Griggs ("W-Tang: An American Saga"), Paul Scheer ("Black Monday"), Amy Seimetz (Pet Semetary) and Glenn Howerton ("It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia").


Archenemy was produced by SpectreVision’s Daniel Noah, Lisa Whalen and Elijah Wood along with Kim Sherman, Adam Egypt Mortimer, Joe Manganiello and Nick Manganiello.


The question that many of you will probably ask after watching the trailer, us included, is "Is Max actually a superhero?" Well, he's certainly convinced that he is. Regardless of if he's truly a superhero or just a drunkard with a mental illness, it appears he ends up fulfilling his destiny as a real-life hero and Archenemy looks like a total blast. Check out the gritty trailer and colorful new poster art below.
