Update: Geez, I’m 2 for 2 this weekend. Contributing editor Scott notified me that the video is not new. IGN posted it a few weeks ago. Click HERE for the original article we posted about it.
As many readers of this site know, I have been a big advocate for the upcoming Surrogates film, starring Bruce Willis and directed by Jonathan Mostow. Some have been critical of it, mainly noting Willis’ bad toupee among other insignificant details. However, the concept (based on Robert Venditti’s graphic novel) is amazing, and the action looks pretty cool. Film School Rejects posted this video today which drives the point home for me:
I love how the surrogate robots have enhanced abilities and can really take a beating. There’s lots of potential for carnage. I am also captivated by the potential social commentary on people living their lives vicariously through something else (i.e. the Internet). What do you think of the footage?
Surrogates opens September 25th. Check our Surrogates Page for more information on the film and it’s viral campaign.
