A new trailer has appeared online exclusively over at Empire for the new Bruce Willis sci-fi/action-thriller, Surrogates. Based on the graphic novel, The Surrogates, and directed by Jonathan Mostow (Terminator 3), the film is set in a world where humans live their lives through robot surrogates. Willis plays Agent Greer, a homicide detective who has to leave his home for the first time in years in order investigate murders of other surrogates and their users.
Empire‘s exclusive Surrogates trailer isn’t drastically different to the first trailer in terms of giving away much more about the plot, but we do get a new opening section that’s reminiscent to the viral marketing materials, as well as it showcasing some of better action scenes – complete with explosions galore. For now, you can view the trailer over at Empire, but be sure to keep an eye out around these parts for when it becomes available as we’ll put it up here.
We’ve been seeing quite a bit of stuff from Surrogates over the last few months – including posters, TV spots and behind-the-scenes stuff – and although it hasn’t looked like anything earth shattering or life changing, I still like enough of what I’ve seen to see it when it opens in theaters. Added to a cool premise and some nifty looking special effects and action sequences, we also have quite a cast: Starring alongside Bruce Willis, we have James Cromwell, Radha Mitchell, Ving Rhames and Rosamund Pike.
Does anyone else think that the film looks like Avatar meets I, Robot? For some reason I can’t get that combo-comparison out of my mind whenever I see anything from it. Time will tell if it actually turns out to be anything like those two movies.
What do you think of the latest trailer for Surrogates? Will you be there opening day to see this one?
Surrogates opens two weeks from today, on September 25th, 2009.
