The first trailer for the graphic novel adaptation Surrogates has been released. The film stars Bruce Willis, Ving Rhames, and Radha Mitchell. The story focuses on a man as he investigates several mysterious deaths that he believes are connected to a government program. The program is extremely high tech and allows people to buy flawless surrogate (robot) versions of themselves. They vicariously live through them and have the ability to live out any and all their outlandish fantasies. This all sounds like a great idea until someone ends up dead and you can’t tell who’s who when trying to catch the culprit.
Check out the trailer after the jump.
Creepy concept, but not as creepy as Ving Rhames and Bruce Willis’ wigs. Those things were very distracting. The film kind of reminds me of a sleeker Total Recall mixed with Demolition Man. The idea of having another version of yourself and living in a controlled, futuristic environment without crime. Surrogates will hit theaters this fall on September 25.
