First Look: Bruce Willis in Sci-Fi Thriller Surrogates

Disney has provided us with the first official photo from the upcoming sci-fi thriller Surrogates starring Bruce Willis. Set in a futuristic world where humans live in isolation and interact through surrogate robots, an FBI agent is forced to leave his home for the first time in years in order to investigate the murders of others' surrogates. In a world of masks, who's real and who can you trust? I actually saw a trailer for this a few months back and thought it looked pretty bad, but I admit it was an early cut with half-finished CGI, so I'll be anxious to see it again once its finished. Until then, let us know what you think of this photo?
Surrogates is directed by Jonathan Mostow, of Breakdown, U-571, and Terminator 3 previously. The script was written by writing duo Michael Ferris and John D. Brancato, of The Net, The Game, Terminator 3, and Catwoman previously, and is based on Robert Venditti's graphic novel. Disney will be bringing Surrogates to theaters on September 25th. The concept reminds me a lot of I, Robot, which immediately sets very high expectations in my mind. I only hope Surrogates can come close to living up to them. Thoughts?
