The New Electra Woman and Dyna Girl Are Ready to Kick Butt and Sell Out

Trailer FrenzyA special place to find the newest trailers for movies and TV shows you're craving.

The new adaptation/reboot/whatever of Sid and Marty Krofft’s extra-cult classic superhero series Electra Woman & Dyna Girl is looking pretty fun, if a bit formulaic: Small-town superheroes come to the big city, get too big for their spandex, break up, only to then make up to save the day. But that doesn’t mean they can’t sneak a subtly dirty joke for adults in there.

Really, what this really reminds me of is Kick-Ass by way of the significantly underrated Josie and the Pussycats movie, which is a description makes me highly want to see EW & DG—and I’m the one who wrote it. The feature-length movie arrives in all the regular digital places on June 7.

Rob Bricken was the Editor of io9 from 2016-18, the creator of the poorly named but fan-favorite news site Topless Robot, and now writes nerd stuff for many places, because it's all he's good at.

Based on “crushing it” and DynaGirl’s waffle-iron haircut, I'm guessing this has been sitting on the shelf for a couple of years.
