The first trailer for the next sci-fi adventure from director Jonathan Mostow (Terminator 3, U-571), Surrogates, has hit the web this afternoon via MySpace. The film stars Bruce Willis as a cop in a futuristic world where humans live in isolation and interact through surrogate robots. Willis’ character, Agent Greer is forced to leave his own home for the first time in several years in order to investigate a series of murders of others’ surrogates. The film also stars Ving Rhames, Rosamund Pike and Radha Mitchell.
Have a look at the first trailer below:
Looks a little Die Hard 4 meets iRobot if you ask me, but that also translates into a certain, undeniable cool factor. I’ve heard — as in, I’ve been told by people whose opinions I trust — that the comic books upon which this movie is being based (written by Robert Venditti) are exceptional, and are reason alone for the excitement that they hold for this film. And I’m willing to go with that, because combined with the cool factor seen in this first trailer, Surrogates has been upgraded from threat level Wait and See to Keeping an Eye On in my book. That, and who can resist being at least a little excited about another Bruce Willis action flick. I know the man is aging, but he’s certainly doing so with style.
Surrogates is in theaters September 25, 2009.
