Screen Play: “Death of a Superhero”

Unbreakable just got fragile

death of a superhero!

No masks, no apes, just A. Serkis and a kid with a monkey on his back. Used to animation, Thomas Brodie-Sangster (the Ferb to one Phineas) is Donald, a teen fighting cancer via a cartoon fantasyland. Andy Serkis plays Dr. King, the psychiatrist who comes to his rescue. The duo have such sparkling chemistry that you may find yourself hunting for Good Will.
It’s like: The Dangerous Lives of Altar Boys meets 50/50.
Take: A sidekick not afraid to cry.
Premiered: May 4 (on demand now)
