Surrogates new trailer online

TheSurrogates.jpgA new trailer has been released for Surrogates, the film from Jonathan Mostow, yes Terminator 3: Rise of the Machines director, and the writers Michael Ferris and John D. Brancato. Bruce Willis, Ving Rhames, Rosamund Pike, Radha Mitchell and Michael Cudlitz make the cast sound very interesting too.

The story sees a future world inhabited by people who believe they are much safer in their protected homes if they connect up to a surrogate robot and send them out into the big bad world to interact with people.

It's been fifteen years since the last murder and crime has more or less been eliminated, it seems to be the perfect utopia, until two surrogates are found destroyed and the people connected to them dead.

This is something that has never been seen before as whenever a robot surrogate is destroyed the human just orders a new one and is unharmed.

Now though, things have changed.

Surrogates sees Bruce Willis playing a policeman who begins to investigate the crimes, and as you can see, he too becomes a target for the killer, and soon he's out in the surrogate world without his robot, and his eyes are opened.

There's more than a passing resemblance to Jonathan Mostow's Terminator 3: Rise of the Machines in a number of ways, but I think it can be forgiven as this story does look pretty interesting.

However, there is a big warning with this trailer, and I'm not sure how many people have been warning their readers about this potential huge spoiler, but at the end of it the events in the film are escalated and there's quite an interesting moment. Now I'm not sure where this plays out in the film, or what part it plays in the overall plot, but looking at it there's the feeling that it could play a major part and be quite a significant part to the plot.

Let's hope not.

For less footage, less potential spoilers, and undoubtedly less exciting footage, you can always watch the previous featurette.

I actually really like the look of the trailer, even if I do feel it's giving a little too much away, really what need was there for those last closing scenes? It was doing more than enough up until then.
