The film hasn’t even finished shooting but the first trailer for Replicas – starring Keanu Reeves, Thomas Middleditch and Alice Eve – was unleashed on an unsuspecting New York Comic-Con 2017 audience this evening.
Replicas is the story of a scientist whose family dies in a car accident just before he makes the breakthrough to transfer human consciousness to a computer – so he creates clones of them with one heartbreaking exception…
Replicas’ release date is TBD. The trailer is propulsive.
In this sci-fi thriller, neuro-scientist William Foster (Keanu Reeves) is on the verge of successfully transferring human consciousness into a computer when his family is tragically killed in a car crash. Desperate to resurrect them, William recruits fellow scientist Ed Whittle (Thomas Middleditch) to help him secretly clone their bodies and create replicas. But he soon faces a “Sophie’s choice” when it turns out that they can only bring three of the four family members back to life. Sci-fi Thriller
