The first trailer for Keanu Reeves’ latest science fiction film, Replicas, dropped today at New York Comic Con. The trailer casts Reeves as a brilliant scientist who suffers the traumatic loss of his wife and children, whom he brings back from the dead, seemingly as synthetic humanoids imbued with their respective memories.
Naturally, things go terribly wrong. The trailer is quick to bring up cloning controversies, and Keanu isn’t afraid to lay down the hurt on anyone who threatens to tattle on him about his little experiment. The movie looks to play on themes of life, death, rebirth and how cool (or wildly uncool) it would be to get put into a synthetic, kind-of-robot body after you die.
According to a report from The Hollywood Reporter, Reeves also mentioned a third Bill & Ted movie during the panel where the trailer for Replicas was played. The script for the film is apparently complete, with the movie currently titled Bill & Ted Face the Music.
There is currently no release date scheduled for Replicas, which is a production of Company Films directed by Jeffrey Nachmanoff and starring Keanu Reeves, Alice Eve, Thomas Middleditch, Emily Alyn Lind, Emjay Anthony, Nyasha Hatendi and John Ortiz.
