SURROGATES - in theaters 09.25.09

In the near future, humans live in isolation and only interact through robotic bodies that serve as surrogates. When several humans are murdered when their surrogates are destroyed, a cop (Bruce Willis) investigates the crimes through his own surrogate. After a near fatal encounter, the cop's surrogate is destroyed and forces him to bring his human form out of isolation and unravel a conspiracy behind the crimes.

I saw the trailer for this a while back when Kim and I went to the Movies for her bday. I thought it looked pretty good to see Bruce Willis back in an action genre movie.

Have any of you seen the trailer? Its about a month and a half out from being released, I think it looks kinda interesting. Like an iRobot meets Terminator :hah:

The trailer started off a bit slow and I said to myself this looks boring, but around the forty-five second mark it got a bit more entertainin and now I actually want to see this movie. I probably won't go watch it in the movie theaters but you never know. It does look like there's a lot of action in this movie. I'm a big fan of Bruce Willis as well so that does help.

It looks fairly average, nothing too exciting. An interesting concept but how they run with it is what looks "meh". I'm half interested I suppose, though it's still a ways away. I shall do what I normally do: wait and see.

...Why is this a blockbuster?

I think it looks well worth the price of admission. I love Willis and it seems like it could be a good mind-bender.

Now this is my kind of movie. I saw a TV spot for this during the Office earlier tonight so I decided to go online and watch the full trailer.

I love movies like this that bend sci-fi with technology in a way that's almost a little too close to home for comfort.

Also, you can't go wrong with Bruce Willis. This movie looks really awesome. It kind of feels like a Matrix/iRobot/The Island/Minority Report combo from the preview, all movies that I am a big fan of.

This movie also intrigued me and I really want to see it. However, I'm a little less enthusiastic because Bruce Willis IS in this movie. I don't really like the guy all that much. :\

I think it could be a decent flick, but I think it's going to be ruined by the "beneficial idea is actually a mind control conspiracy to take over the world" plot. I really hope they surprise me and stray away from that.
