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

2 hours ago | 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.

So, taking a look at the trailer for his next effort, it seems that he’s 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 »

Ben Kingsley Becomes Ryan Reynolds In Trailer For Self/Less

2 hours ago | 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 »

Tarsem’s ‘Self/less’ starring Ben Kingsley and Ryan Reynolds gets a trailer

3 hours ago | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

Tarsem Singh has always been one for visually dazzling films. His latest output, from Immortals and Mirror Mirror, have been messy disappointments compared to the whimsical charms of the underrated gem The Fall. His latest however places him firmly in thriller territory rather than fantasy spectacle. Self/less stars Ben Kingsley as a wealthy, powerful, successful man who wishes to transfer his mind into a younger body, played by Ryan Reynolds. But the doctor responsible for this procedure (Matthew Goode) is hiding a sinister secret as to the origins of Reynolds’s past life and to the procedure’s side effects.

Granted, the last time Ryan Reynolds starred in a body switch movie it was called The Change-Up. This thankfully looks nothing like that. Self/less is released July 31 and also stars Michelle Dockery, Natalie Martinez, Victor Garber, and Derek Luke. Watch the trailer below:

Ryan Reynolds' Full Self/Less Trailer Is Darkly Futuristic

4 hours ago | cinemablend.com | See recent Cinema Blend news »

What will it be like when future medical advancements make it possible to shift man's consciousness from that of a terminally ill body to the body of a healthy young man? Thanks to Tarsem Singh's new sci-fi thriller Self/Less, starring Ryan Reynolds, we can get a clearer picture of the aftermath of such a procedure. The bad news is that it's much darker than any of us ever imagined. The above trailer sees Damian (Ben Kingsley), a wealthy powerful, old man dying from cancer, be offered an extremely interesting opportunity by a mysterious individual named Albright (Matthew Goode). Thanks to advances in medicine, he has the chance to undergo a procedure to remove his consciousness from his dying "vessel" and replace it inside a much younger, fully healthy body. When he takes Albright up on the deal, he is transferred into his younger self (Reynolds). But while his »

Watch: First Trailer For Tarsem’s Biogenic Sci-Fi Thriller ‘Self/Less’ Starring Ryan Reynolds

6 hours ago | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

It’s been a minute since we’ve heard from Tarsem; he is the mono monikered director behind “The Fall” and “The Cell.” After being absent for a few years, he made up for lost time in 2011/2012 with the almost one-two punch of “Immortals” and “Mirror Mirror” — both films were released within five months of each other. And while neither did much to quell the criticism that Tarsem is style over substance, they did decent enough worldwide business to keep the Tarsem brand in business. And so his latest is the biogenic sci-fi thriller “Self/Less,” which is about an extremely wealthy man dying from cancer, who undergoes a radical medical procedure that transfers his consciousness into the body of a healthy young man. Of course things like this don’t always go according to plan. Ben Kingsley stars as the older scion, Ryan Reynolds his younger self, and the movie also co-stars Matthew Goode, »

Watch: First Trailer for Tarsem's Sci-Fi 'Self/less' with Ryan Reynolds

6 hours ago | firstshowing.net | See recent FirstShowing.net news »

Would you take a life to live forever? After sending out phones to movie bloggers yesterday, today Focus Features has sent out a link that goes straight to the trailer for Self/less. Indeed, this was what it was all for - a promotion for the upcoming Tarsem sci-fi movie Self/less, starring Ryan Reynolds and Ben Kingsley. Kingsley is an old man who wants his consciousness transferred into Ryan Reynolds. So he goes to Phoenix Biogenic and begins the process. All seems to go well, except things get a little hazy part of the way through. Matthew Goode, Michelle Dockery, Natalie Martinez, Victor Garber and Derek Luke also star. This looks pretty good, though the visual look of the dual minds isn't as trippy as I was expecting. Fire it up. Here's the first official trailer for Tarsem Singh's new sci-fi Self/less, direct from Focus Features: »

First Trailer For Tarsem’s ‘Self/Less’ Finds Ben Kingsley Inhabiting Ryan Reynolds’ Body

6 hours ago | The Film Stage | See recent The Film Stage news »

A consistently underrated expert of the visual medium, Tarsem might not always have the material to back up his story, but The Fall, Immortals, and, yes, even Mirror Mirror showed he can defy expectations. His latest film, Self/Less, teams him with Ryan Reynolds (who with The Voices has shown he’s looking for something a bit different) and today the first trailer has arrived. The story follows a […] »

8 hours ago | Dark Horizons | See recent Dark Horizons news »

It has been a few years since filmmaker Tarsem Singh came out with "Immortals" and "Mirror Mirror" within just a few months of each other. Now though he's back with all his usual visual style in the first trailer for his new sci-fi thriller "Self/Less".

The plot is best described as a far smarter sounding "Freejack" with Ben Kingsley playing a wealthy but dying scion who undergoes a radical medical procedure that transfers his consciousness into the body of a healthy young man (Ryan Reynolds). Matthew Goode, Michelle Dockery, Natalie Martinez, Derek Luke and Mariana Paola Vicente also star in the film which opens July 31st.

Ryan Reynolds' body is stolen in Tarsem Singh's Selfless trailer

It's been a few years since we've seen anything from visionary director Tarsem Singh (Mirror Mirror, Immortals) but the trailer for his latest, Selfless, is finally here. Right off the bat, you may notice that the visual aesthetic of this film feels quite restrained compaired to his earlier works, but that's where the story takes over. The film follows an extremely wealthy man (Ben Kingsley), dying from cancer, who undergoes a radical medical procedure that transfers »

Viral Promo For New Ryan Reynolds Sci-Fi Movie Self/Less

14 hours ago | Obsessed with Film | See recent Obsessed with Film news »

Focus Features’ original plan was to release Self/Less in September of last year but, at some point, the decision was made to punt it back to Summer 2015. We’ll now be seeing it on July 31st.

The film has been directed by Tarsem Singh, the stylist behind Rem’s Losing My Religion, cult-movie The Fall and J-Lo embarrassment The Cell. He’s only ever as good as his scripts, and sometimes not quite, but Self/Less at least has the benefit of a screenplay by David and Alex Pastor.

The Pastors wrote Carriers and The Last Days, both of which were low-key but smarter than average genre films. I’m certainly alway interested when I see their name on a film.

And the stars of Self/Less are Ryan Reynolds and Ben Kingsley, the latter playing a billionaire who wants his consciousness transferred into the body of the former. »

'Self/less' Video Sets Up Ryan Reynolds Sci-Fi Thriller

3 March 2015 12:06 PM, PST | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

With the July 31 release date just a few months away, Focus Features has started a viral campaign for the upcoming sci-fi thriller Self/less, which should mean that the first trailer is right around the corner. While we wait for the first footage to debut, the studio has released a viral clip that introduces us to Phoenix Biogenic, the leader in "consciousness transfer technology." This facility is used in Self/less by the wealthy who want to transfer their minds into a different "vessel."

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 that will kill to protect its cause. »

Viral Marketing Begins for Tarsem Singh's 'Self/less'

3 March 2015 8:40 AM, PST | Rope of Silicon | See recent Rope Of Silicon news »

I absolutely hate the fact Focus is using the backslash in the title for Tarsem Singh's new movie Self/less. It's about as clever as the vanity plate I saw a week ago on a Toyota Prius that read Imirnmn. Yeah, don't think so. Nevertheless, I really like Singh's work, yes, primarily for his visuals, but when he matches the narrative up to those visuals, as he did with The Fall, it really works. As for Self/less, it's described as a psychological science fiction thriller, in which an extremely wealthy man (Ben Kingsley) is dying from cancer and 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 that will kill to protect its cause. Matthew Goode, Michelle Dockery, »
