Limitless movie trailer and poster Limitless Super Bowl TV Spot

Neil Burger’s upcoming Limitless debuts in a matter of weeks and while there’s not been too much marketing or buzz for it, the film’s first trailer offered an exciting and promising thriller, with the perfect leading role for star Bradley Cooper.

Limitless is a film about a writer named Eddie Morra (Cooper) who’s offered the opportunity to try out MDT, a top-secret drug which unlocks the full potential of his brain, essentially offering him superhuman intelligence and intuition. Confident and cockey, Eddie overcomes writer’s block and finishes novel in days, against all expectations of his girlfriend (Abbie Cornish), before moving on to profiting big off the stock market and earning the attention of a ruthless business man (Robert De Niro) who sees to take advantage of Eddie’s special skills.

“Become the perfect version” of yourself:

The TV Spot is essentially a sped up version of the full Limitless trailer, with focus on the very important scene at the end when Cooper and De Niro face off. While the marketing so far focuses on the protagonist’s ascension to “greatness,” with only hints of a hidden conspiracy, the film has a chance to shine in how Cooper’s character deals with the aftermath while on the run from hit men and suffering the side effects of the miracle drug.

What would you do when offered such an opportunity?

  1. The movie would be cool if it weren’t for the fact that the basic premise is based on an urban legend that makes no scientific sense. It’s true you only use a limited percentage at your brain, but this is only because your brain is compartmentalized into different sections based on the wildly different jobs your brain has to perform. Using you entire brain at once would be useless/contradictory. It would not make you super smart.

    • I’ll enjoy it for sure, but I have to agree. I cringe every time I hear the !0% myth.

    • Gee… wonder if you’ll have a problem with John Carter of Mars (or whatever its name is) LOL.

      I always figure the whole point of a movie is to suspend reality for the imagination’s sake… unless it contradicts the laws that the movie has already set up for its own universe [ala the ending of The Quick and the Dead - Hackman's character is shot once and his body doesn't flinch, the next shot from the same gun causes him to do a backflip - pulled me out of the story].

  2. @darkpassneger21:

    Its a move. Stop ripping its essence apart. Sit back and watch it or ignore it. Simple.

  3. “Limitless”, looks good!!!

    Damn the Stupid Bowl!

    And CNN,,,

  4. Can’t stand Cooper, but the movie looks intriguing. Should have just called it Sleepless. You get some of the same results from missing a couple nights of sleep.
