Replicas. In Theatres January 11, 2019SYNOPSIS
After a car accident kills his loving family, a daring neuroscientist will stop at nothing to bring them back, even if it means pitting himself against a government-controlled laboratory, a police task force, and the physical laws of science themselves.
The much anticipated Sci-Fi thriller written by Chad St. John (London Has Fallen) comes to the big screen starring Keanu Reeves (John Wick, The Matrix trilogy, Speed), Alice Eve (Before We Go, Star Trek, She’s Out Of My League), Thomas Middleditch (Silicon Valley) and John Ortiz (Silver Linings Playbook, American Gangster) directed by talented director Jeffrey Nachmanoff (Traitor) and produced by Lorenzo di Bonaventura (Transformers franchise, G.I. Joe, Red, Salt) Stephen Hamel (Passengers), Keanu Reeves, Mark Gao (Transporter Refueled, 24 Hours To Live) and Luis Riefkohl.
Replicas will be a timely film for audiences. For Keanu Reeves fans, it’s a chance to see him in a different role than just pure action. This film is a family story at its core, as Hamel explains, but it’s also a sci-fi thriller, so fans of that genre will still really enjoy it. Nachmanoff adds that a lot of movies look at scientific advances with fear, i.e. Skynet in the Terminator franchise. This movie takes a slightly different point of view in that the science is neither good nor bad in and of itself. It is more of a classic story about human nature and forces us to ask the question: what would you do if you were in William’s shoes? Who wouldn’t try to save his or her family?
