Heroes the film - Push trailer online
The trailer for Push has arrived online, what's that you might ask? Well it's easily described in three words, Heroes: The Movie.
That's maybe a bit unfair, but watch the trailer and that's all you can think of. People have abilities, single ones, and a government organisation is trying to track them down, contain them, and control them. Sounds like Heroes, but looks more exciting, more violent, and way more dramatic. After all it only has under two hours to get a series in there.
It looks a strong cast and it's directed by Paul McGuigan who also directed Lucky Number Slevin (Filmstalker review) and Gangster No. 1, so expect style and substance for the most part, if it follows Slevin that is.
Saying that, it does absolutely reek of Heroes, and it's not even disguised any, and actually for that reason I think it will do well because it's tapping into the buzz that Heroes is getting. What's probably brilliant about the timing too is that Heroes is taking a little downturn at the moment as it isn't as smooth in the storyline progression and is turning around characters that we've come to love, and Push could give the Heroes fans what they're missing.
Before we hit the trailer which I found through Row Three, here's the write up from IMDB:
The action packed sci-fi thriller involves a group of young American ex-pats with telekinetic and clairvoyant abilities, hiding from a clandestine U.S. government agency. They must utilize their different talents and band together for a final job enabling them to escape the agency forever.
Hounsou plays the head of the government agency, and it looks like Evans and Fanning are leading the fight against them utilising the powers and knowledge of Belle - if they can turn her away from the agency. See what you think and tell us about it, Heroes or something more?
