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 »

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 »

Ryan Reynolds Battles Ben Kingsley for Control in First Trailer for Sci-Fi Thriller ‘Self/Less’ (Video)

4 March 2015 10:38 AM, PST | The Wrap | See recent The Wrap news »

Science fiction allows some crazy things to happen, and the latest just-barely-plausible story will see Ben Kingsley taking over Ryan Reynolds‘ body — though of course it all goes wrong pretty quickly. “Self/Less,” from “The Cell” director Tarsem Singh, follows a dying billionaire (Kingsley) who agrees to undergo a radical medical procedure that will allow him to live on in a new, younger body (Reynolds). He thinks it’s a clean slate, until he starts getting hit with visions which turn out to be memories of his host body’s real life.

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

4 March 2015 8:50 AM, PST | 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, »

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

4 March 2015 12:37 AM, PST | 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. »

Forecast: 'Sniper' to Easily Fight Off Weak Competition This Weekend

22 January 2015 4:03 PM, PST | Box Office Mojo | See recent BoxOfficeMojo.com news »

Three new wide releases hit theaters this weekend, though none of them have the slightest chance of taking first place away from American Sniper.Among those new releases, The Boy Next Door seems to have the edge; the Jennifer Lopez thriller should wind up in second place with at least $15 million. Meanwhile, Mortdecai and Strange Magic will likely wind up below $10 million.American Sniper opened to a stunning $89.3 million last weekend, which ranks second all-time for an R-rated movie behind The Matrix Reloaded. It has also held well through the week*its $7.55 million Wednesday haul is very impressive*which is usually a good indicator of a strong second weekend.To help meet the high demand, American Sniper is expanding to 3,705 theaters, which is the widest release ever for an R-rated movie. Based on the mid-week performance, it's likely that the movie earns at least $50 million this weekend. If it gets closer to $60 million, »
