I Origins

"I'd like to tell you the story of the eyes that changed this world." After making a splash with the indie sci-fi Another Earth at Sundance in 2011, director Mike Cahill returned to the independent film festival with the penetrating sci-fi drama I Origins. Now the first trailer for the compelling film starring Michael Pitt, Brit Marling and Astrid Bergès-Frisbey has arrived. This film is an absolute sensation (read Alex's Sundance review right here), and serves as an interesting, provoking bridge between the ever-strong debate between faith and science. This is one you'll want to seek out this summer for sure. Watch the trailer now!

Here's the first official trailer for Mike Cahill's I Origins, originally from Apple:

I Origins is written and directed by Mike Cahill (Another Earth). Ian Gray (Michael Pitt), a PhD student studying molecular biology with a specialty in eye evolution has an intense, but fleeting, encounter with a mysterious, masked model (Astrid Bergès-Frisbey) who escapes into the night. With only a picture of her stunning and iconic eyes, he tracks her down, and they fall in love. Their fundamentally different beliefs about life only serve to intensify their connection, and they vow to spend forever together. Years later, Ian and his lab partner, Karen (Brit Marling), make a stunning discovery with profound existential implications. The film premiered at Sundance 2014 and Fox Searchlight Pictures releases it in limited theaters July 18th.

    OMG this gave me "Contact" vibes! "Contact" was and still is criminally underrated by the way.

      If you have never read the Book version of Contact then do so ASAP, it is even better than the movie.

    If only Brit Marling would just be a writer... She almost ruins movies she's in, but the stuff she writes is pretty cool.

    Ethan please stop posting "must watch" if ur the only one getting a woody for it.

    Could be something, could be nothing. I like Michael Pitt, though, and while the "11"s thing was too "23" (one with Jim Carrey) for me, the main thing with the eyes is a bit intriguing. Going to wait for reviews on that one.

    "what would you do if something completely disproved your scientific beliefs", to which the scientist rationally responds: "I would use this new information to come up with a new theory."

      Hollywood loves the stereotype of the Angry atheist who undergoes "spiritual" transformation.

  • shane willett
    Same Eyeballs ... der.. Lame, they should have waited until the new Cosmos' came out it explains why are eyes are the way we are, plus you can clone, that proves that the soul isn't in the, what about blind people, guess they have no soul... Heartless i tell you, heartless... blind people have souls!
