One of our favorite readers, PatientZero, has sent us over this brand new featurette for Jonathan Mostow’s upcoming sci-fi film Surrogates starring Bruce Willis, Radha Mitchell and Rosamund Pike. Hitting theaters on September 25, the film will follow the story of two FBI Agents (Willis and Mitchell) who are investigating the mysterious murder of a college student linked to the man who helped create a high-tech surrogate program that allows people to purchase unflawed robotic versions of themselves. These good looking, physically fit robot surrogates assume their roles in everyday life, enabling people to live vicariously from the comfort of their own home. But as these agents soon find out, this world of humans and non-humans quickly becomes a world of questions.
If you ask me — which you didn’t, but I’m going to tell you anyway — this movie has tons of cool-potential. And with director Jonathan Mostow, we are assured that there will be a bit of action to go along with whatever plot development may exist. In fact, I was just commenting the other day to some friends about how I am still impressed with Mostow’s work on Terminator 3. Sure, the story in that film went way off the deep end, but the action sort of kicked ass, did it not. And from what I hear, The Surrogates is a wicked cool comic series that is ripe for a badass adaptation. This preview only solidifies that sentiment.
Surrogates hits theaters on September 25, 2009. Check out the new featurette below.
