Ryan Reynolds and Ben Kingsley turn freaky Friday in to immortal Monday in the first official trailer for Tarsem Singh’s sci-fi thriller Self/Less.

The procedure, offering ‘humanity’s greatest minds more time to fill their potential’, uses revolutionary technology to transfers a person’s consciousness from one body to another.

Shortly after transference of his conscious into the body of a healthy, virile young man (Reynolds), Damian soon discovers that scientific progress is not without its sacrifice when his mind begins to be invaded with the memories and impulses of the conscious that previously occupied the body before him.

Check Out The First Trailer For Tarsem Singh's Selfless

5 March 2015 5:00 AM, PST | ComicBookMovie.com | See recent ComicBookMovie news »

Tarsem Singh is known for his stunning creative/surreal visuals in the likes of Immortals and The Cell, so this one looks to be something of a departure in that regard. We're still firmly in sci-fi territory though, as Ben Kingsley (Iron Man 3) strives for immortality by having his conciousness shifted to a "host" body that looks a lot like Green Lantern minus the crappy mask. He's happy to live the high life for a while, until... yeah you get the idea. Check out the trailer and poster below. In this provocative psychological science fiction thriller, an extremely wealthy man (Academy Award® Winner Ben Kingsley) dying from cancer undergoes a radical medical procedure that transfers his consciousness into the body of a healthy young man (Ryan Reynolds). But all is not as it seems when he starts to uncover the mystery of the body’s origin and the organization »

Selfless: first trailer for new Ryan Reynolds sci-fi movie

4 March 2015 10:27 PM, PST | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Ryan Reynolds and Ben Kingsley star in one of the most interesting-looking sci-fi movies of the year. Here's the Selfless trailer...

A good number of the films we've been looking forward to so far this year haven't turned out quite so well. Mortdecai? Best we don't talk about it. And even Michael Mann's Blackhat fell short of what we were hoping.

Here's hoping this one lives up to its potential, though.

We've been following Tarsem Singh's Selfless for a while, a movie that originally was set to be released last year. It stays Ryan Reynolds, Matthew Goode, Michelle Dockery and Ben Kingsley, and it tells the story of a very rich man dying from cancer, who undergoes an experimental medical procedure.

That procedure? It transfers his consciousness into the body of someone younger. Unfortunately, there are consequences to the body that he chose.

The film doesn't currently have a UK release date, »

Ryan Reynolds And Ben Kingsley Join Together In First Trailer For Self/Less

4 March 2015 12:46 PM, PST | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Focus Features has debuted the first trailer for Tarsem Singh’s latest effort, Self/Less. As usual, the esoteric filmmaker appears to have conjured up what the official synopsis describes as a ‘provocative psychological’ sci-fi thriller. Ben Kingsley stars as a man dying from cancer, who pays to have his soul placed into the body of a young, healthy chap played by Ryan Reynolds.

Taking a look at the trailer for his next effort, it seems that Singh is on track to deliver another similar caper. Self/Less appears to be providing us with another cautionary tale – as brainy sci-fi flicks often choose to do. This time the futuristic “what if?” comes to us through Singh’s visually adventurous eye, calling to mind two of his previous works, The Cell and The Fall, which developed some stunningly original ideas.

Thematically, it seems to veers close to what Black Mirror offers »

Ben Kingsley Becomes Ryan Reynolds In Trailer For Self/Less

4 March 2015 12:40 PM, PST | www.themoviebit.com | See recent TheMovieBit news »

Last time we saw director Tarsem Singh, he was tackling fairy tales with Mirror, Mirror (which followed such visually stunning projects like The Cell, The Fall, and Immortals). Now, he's handling body swapping in sci-fi thriller Self/Less, which sees an extremely wealthy man (Ben Kingsley), dying of cancer, undergo a radical procedure to transplant his consciousness into a younger body (Ryan Reylonds). But, of course, he finds out that a secret corporation peddling immortality isn't all it seems. Self/Less is as high concept as they come, but this first trailer does a great job of selling the story, and hints at deeper psychological aspect to the plot that should shake thing up nicely. Singh's trademark visual style seems to be missing, but no doubt it'll make it self known when the movie takes an inevitable turn for the crazy. Released: July 31st »
