An Android on the Run Again in Sci-Fi 'Vice' Trailer with Bruce Willis

"They look and act like humans, which gives our clients the most realistic experience possible." Since the year is almost up, we're starting to get teases for films that will end up in the dumping ground of the early part of the year (January, February and most of March). This time it's the sci-fi action thriller Vice, which looks like a poor man's version of I, Robot meets Surrogates, and it even has the latter's star Bruce Willis involved. Loooking and feeling more like a film adaptation of the canceled Fox series "Almost Human," the movie follows a female android, used to carry out fantasies at a resort called Vice, that seems to be becoming more human with flashbacks and whatnot. Of course, she escapes, they pursue, and action ensues. Watch?
Vice is directed by Brian A. Miller (The Prince, Officer Down) and written by Andre Fabrizio & Jeremy Passmore (The Prince, San Andreas). Julian Michaels (Bruce Willis) has designed the ultimate resort: VICE, where anything goes and the customers can play out their wildest fantasies with artificial inhabitants who look, think and feel like humans. When an artificial (Ambyr Childers) becomes self-aware and escapes, she finds herself caught in the crossfire between Julian's mercenaries and a cop (Thomas Jane) who is hell-bent on shutting down Vice, and stopping the violence once and for all. Lionsgate releases the film simultaneously on VOD and in theaters on January 16th, 2015. Anyone interested at all?
