Watch: First Trailer for Tarsem's Sci-Fi 'Self/less' with Ryan Reynolds
Would you take a life to live forever? After sending out phones to movie bloggers yesterday, today Focus Features has sent out a link that goes straight to the trailer for Self/less. Indeed, this was what it was all for - a promotion for the upcoming Tarsem sci-fi movie Self/less, starring Ryan Reynolds and Ben Kingsley. Kingsley is an old man who wants his consciousness transferred into Ryan Reynolds. So he goes to Phoenix Biogenic and begins the process. All seems to go well, except things get a little hazy part of the way through. Matthew Goode, Michelle Dockery, Natalie Martinez, Victor Garber and Derek Luke also star. This looks pretty good, though the visual look of the dual minds isn't as trippy as I was expecting. Fire it up.
Here's the first official trailer for Tarsem Singh's new sci-fi Self/less, direct from Focus Features:
An extremely wealthy man (Ben Kingsley), dying from cancer, undergoes a radical medical procedure that transfers his consciousness into the body of a healthy young man (Ryan Reynolds). But all is not as it seems when he starts to uncover the mystery of the body's origin and the organization that will kill to protect its cause. Self/less is directed by Indian filmmaker Tarsem Singh, of the films The Cell, The Fall, Immortals and Mirror Mirror previously. He's directing from a screenplay by David Pastor & Àlex Pastor (of Carriers, The Last Days, Out of the Dark previously). Focus Features will release Tarsem's Self/less in US theaters starting July 31st later this summer. Visit phoenixbiogenic.com. Do you want to know more?
