The Long Path to a Release Date Continues with Sci-fi Thriller Replicas: Second Trailer

Related Posts Plugin for WordPress, Blogger...
Production on the sci-fi thriller Replicas began way back in 2014. In 2014, Tanya Wexler (Hysteria) was expected to director. THR reported that the film would begin shooting shortly after: "production [was] scheduled to begin in spring 2015." Likely, Replicas completed shooting that same year. And, post-production was completed in 2017, according to IMDB. However, the film was eventually shot by director Jeffrey Nachmanoff (The Tourist, 2010). In 2017, Replicas released its first trailer. During this same year, the film had an appearance at the New York Comic Con. Now, the film has a second trailer (found below), along with more release details.

Notably, Keanu Reeves (John Wick 2) plays Will Foster, a renowned scientist. Will hopes to bring his family back, after their tragic death - involving a car accident. Eventually, he transfers their consciousnesses into automatons, with horrifying results.

Since the film's completion in 2017, Replicas has sold in several foreign markets, including: the Netherlands, Belgium, Switzerland, Finland and South Korea. Recently, Entertainment Studios has picked the film up for showings in North America. Though, this film has been looking for an audience since 2014: "Lotus will introduce the film to foreign buyers beginning at the upcoming American Film Market (THR, 2014)." With a release date still a ways off, in North America, one might begin to wonder as to the quality of the film. Fans of sci-fi or thriller can see the film's quality, for themselves, with the second trailer hosted below.

Release Date: TBA.

Director: Jeffrey Nachmanoff.

Writers: Chad St. John, Stephen Hamel.

Cast: Alice Eve, Keanu Reeves, Thomas Middleditch, John Ortiz and Emily Alyn Lind.
