Discover the first crazy images of Philippe Lacheau’s new comedy: Super-hero despite himself. The film will be released on February 9, 2022 on the big screen.
After Nicky Larson and the perfume of Cupid, which gathered 1.6 million spectators in 2019, Philippe Lacheau and his band are back in Super-heroes despite himself.
The story follows Cédric, a struggling actor apprentice. The latter finally landed his first role in a superhero movie called Badman. One evening, while borrowing the filming car, he is the victim of an accident which causes him to lose his memory.
Upon awakening, dressed in his vigilante costume and surrounded by props from the film, he is convinced that he has become the character of the film with a perilous mission to accomplish. But it is not a hero and even less a superhero who wants … And even less Cédric.
Faithful to themselves, the band at Fifi, composed of Julien Arruti, Tarek Boudali and Elodie Fontan, multiplies the gags and the delusional situations. Philippe Lacheau even summons the Marvel universe with references to Gamora from Guardians of the Galaxy, Thor or Iron Man. He also allows himself to parody the famous kissing scene from Spider-Man, in which Tobey Maguire, his head upside down, is kissing Kirsten Dunst.
Obviously, the denouement of this supposedly romantic moment does not end like in Sam Raimi’s film, Badman quickly finding himself without pants in front of his sweetheart. The latter is played by Alice Dufour, who has already collaborated with Lacheau on Babysitting and Alibi.com. Before unveiling the first images, the filmmaker revealed the poster on his Instagram account, announcing a tour of previews.
Superhero in spite of himself will land in theaters on February 9, 2022. Philippe Lacheau directs the film and plays the main role. He also wrote the screenplay alongside Pierre Dudan, Pierre Lacheau and Julien Arruti. The film will open the next Alpe d’Huez Comedy Festival on Monday January 17, 2022. It will be a special edition on the occasion of the 25th anniversary.
