Keanu Reeves returns to the world of sci-fi with his latest film, Replicas, directed by Jeffrey Nachmanoff. And if the trailer is anything to go by, it looks pretty damn good. “I didn’t defy every natural law there is just to lose you again,” his character narrates as things go awry during the process which sees the scientist experimenting with a method to bring back his dead family.
Think I, Robot meets Brainstorm meets Transcendence.
In this sci-fi thriller, neuro-scientist William Foster 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 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.
