Heroes the film - Push trailer online

Push.jpgThe 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.

Push stars Dakota Fanning, Chris Evans, Camilla Belle, Djimon Hounsou, Maggie Siff, Cliff Curtis, Joel Gretsch and more names and faces you'll recognise from elsewhere.

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?



Yeah, looks just like Heroes, and it also looks like this trailer pretty much showed me everything fun or exciting in the film, so now I don't have to watch it. Thanks for posting this.

Cheers Ian, always great to get thanks for articles.

Yeah, I did think that we got a rather lot of the film in that trailer. Let's hope there's plenty more in reserve though.

i like Heroes- Push does feel like a (Cronenberg's)Scanners movie for today-in reality if there was going to be a movie like this-i would have preferred it to be an actual HEROES movie with all the characters-but nevertheless this looks like good popcorn entertainment and i do agree that the complete film has just been crammed into the trailer-which usually doesnt bode well!!!-but i somehow wonder if there isnt a 'superhero' overspill at the moment-for years we dont have any respectful DC/ Marvel /independent comics-adaptation all of a sudden we have an army of them-Spiderman, Batman begins, Hulk,Daredevil, Superman Returns.- even the onscure one- Wanted, Man Thing, Ghost Rider,Elektra etc-not forgetting the spoofs-and there's more coming-i mean i really love my diet of the celluloid heroes that are ingrained in my memory from childhood reading-too much of a good thing -can sometimes kill the industry!
