Touchstone Pictures is on the warpath this week, promoting their upcoming sci-fi adventure Surrogates with a vengeance. The Bruce Willis-led action film is set in a world where people do not leave their homes, but use highly complicated computer interfaces to control robots made to look like their ideal selves. It takes the concept of James Cameron’s Avatar, removes the silly Dances with Wolves storyline and applies it to a world that looks like our own.
Alright, that’s not actually true. Surrogates is based on a popular comic by Robert Venditti and Brett Weldele. Director Jonathon Mostow (Terminator 3) is bringing it to life through the eyes of a cop (Willis) who is forced to leave his home for the first time in years in order to investigate the murders of others’ surrogates.
In anticipation of the film’s fall release, Touchstone has released several new photos today as well as a music video from the soundtrack, Breaking Benjamin’s “I Will Not Bow.” You can see both by clicking around below.
