New Trailer for Keanu Reeves' Clone Sci-Fi Thriller REPLICAS
Keanu Reeves’ next film, Replicas, looks like it tells an interesting sci-fi story about a man who is looking to clone his family, who were tragically killed. As you might expect, things don’t play out as smoothly as he would have liked.
We have a new trailer for the film for you to watch today that offers up some new footage that offers a bit more insight on the story and how it will play out.
The story centers on a neuroscientist named William Foster (Reeves), who "is on the verge of successfully transferring human consciousness into a computer when his family is tragically killed in a car crash. Desperate to resurrect them, William recruits fellow scientist Ed Whittle (Thomas Middleditch) to help him secretly clone their bodies and create replicas. But he soon faces a 'Sophie’s choice' when it turns out that they can only bring three of the four family members back to life."
Foster ends up facing some heavy consequences for his actions, but he’s willing to fight to save his family of clones as the government tries to shut him down because cloning is banned.
Replicas was directed by Jeffrey Nachmanoff and also stars Alice Eve and John Ortiz. Replicas will be released on January 11th, 2019.
