Two New Extended Clips for Surrogates

by Dan Koelsch

With Surrogates releasing in theaters tomorrow nationwide, there has been a lot of clips and interviews this week to promote the film. Today we got two extended clips thanks to Trailer Addict.


The first, titled “Newsreel”, gives a timeline of the evolution of the surrogate. The interesting thing I saw in here was how there are “Surrogacy-Free” zones around the country, set up by those who oppose the concept, who themselves are headed by Ving Rhames’ character. Sounds like a great idea for a viral, huh? (Hint Hint to Disney). Here’s the video for that:




The second clip, titled “No Accident” is an extended version of the car collision we’ve seen in several other clips and trailers. Obviously, as the title suggests, this “accident” is suspicous. This clip showed me two things. One, Bruce Willis is one tough cookie. Two, I think we’ll see a lot of fun surrogate action sequences. Here’s the video:





These clips both really excited me for the film, but the lost viral potential really saddens me. Ving Rhames’s anti-Surrogate group could have gone the way of MNU Spreads Lies (for District 9) or Tidowave (for Cloverfield) and had websites, videos, etc. To my knowledge this is Disney’s first viral attempt (Tron Legacy is second, but that is being done by the revered 42 Entertainment), so I shouldn’t be surprised.


What do you think of the clips? Does Bruce Willis still have it?
