'Defendor' In Canadian Theatres On Feb. 19


Many months ago, Defendor had its world premiere at the Toronto International Film Festival. Now, this hero film - which was turned down by Hollywood majors and shot with a budget of $4 million - will premiere in Canada on February 19. As for the U.S. release of the film, it will happen on February 26.


In this film, we follow Arthur Poppington (Woody Harrelson), your typical average guy. However, Arthur is also a delusional man who believes he's a superhero named Defendor. This is why he sees a psychiatrist (Sandra Oh). At night, he fights crime in the streets of Hammer Town (Hamilton, Ontario?) and searches for Captain Industry, a drug and weapon dealer who he mistakingly blames for the death of his mother. Besides, Defendor also takes the time to protect Kat (Kat Dennings), a young prostitute.

The film is directed by Vancouver-born Peter Stebbings.

The stars of the film - besides Woody Harrelson and Kat Dennings - are Sandra Oh (Blindness), Elias Koteas (The Thin Red Line), Lisa Ray (Water), Michael Kelly (Changeling), Charlotte Sullivan (Across the River to Motor City) and Kristin Booth (Crackie).
