Touchstone Pictures has released the final trailer for their upcoming sci-fi film Surrogates, starring Bruce Willis. The Jonathan Mostow directed film is set in a world where humans live their lives through robotic surrogates controlled remotely from the comfort of their own homes. That is, until people start dying. Willis plays a detective trying to figure out why this seemingly safe use of technology has all of the sudden become lethal. My guess: someone has ideological differences, and is trying to make humanity pay for its arrogant use of technology.

The trailer below might look familiar to Comic-Con attendees, as it was shown there during the Disney/Touchstone panel. A lot of the footage looks similar to what we’ve seen in previous trailers and clips, with a few new shots thrown in there for fun. I don’t think that anyone’s looking to Surrogates to change the world of sci-fi (we’ve already seen that once this year with District 9), but this trailer does hint at a pretty intense action film — akin to recent Bruce Willis efforts such as Live Free or Die Hard. If there’s one thing we know of director Jonathan Mostow, it is that he knows how to deliver action (a la Terminator 3)… as for committment to story and character… that’s another, er, story entirely.

Surrogates hits theaters on September 25th. Watch the new trailer below.
