Watch: Full Trailer for Sci-Fi Thriller 'Identicals' from Simon Pummell
"There's a better life waiting for us." Samuel Goldwyn Films has released an official trailer for the sci-fi psychological thriller called Identicals, from director Simon Pummell, and it looks pretty damn cool. At least, it has some amazingly cool visuals that I really dig. Is it actually a good film? Well, I don't really know, I'm not so sure. Starring Lachlan Nieboer, Nora-Jane Noone, Nick Blood, Tony Way, and Jacinta Mulcahy. The film, originally called Brand New-U, is about a futuristic company called Brand New-U that allows people to create a brand new life using other people known as "Identicals" as some kind of surrogate. Obviously, not everything is going to go as planned. Watch the new trailer below and tell us what you think.
Here's the first official trailer (+ poster) for Simon Pummell's Identicals, in high def from Apple:
The organization Brand New-U identifies networks of Identicals—people who walk like you, talk like you, but are walking through different, better lives—and helps their customers make a life upgrade: eliminating the better-life donor, and relocating their client to that brand new life. Slater seems to have the perfect life, the perfect job and the perfect girlfriend. But when Slater’s girlfriend is abducted by Brand New-U, and a corpse left in her place, he is forced to become an Identical. As he moves through a series of parallel lives, he becomes more and more obsessed with finding his girlfriend, but what he must find in the end is himself. Identicals is both written & directed by English filmmaker Simon Pummell, of Shock Head Soul, Bodysong and a number of shorts previously. The film first premiered at the Edinburgh Film Festival last year. Samuel Goldwyn Films will release in theaters starting March 25th this year. Curious about this?

I feel some Tron vibe from this.
