First Official Trailer for Sci-Fi Thriller 'Replicas' Starring Keanu Reeves

"I'm on the verge of a breakthrough... I am this close." Entertainment Studios has debuted an official trailer for a sci-fi thriller titled Replicas, starring Keanu Reeves as a mad scientists who tries to figure out how to bring back his family after they are killed in a car accident. There's some kind of weird robot and lots of cool headgear that Reeves wears, but really is is about a synthetic biologist who attempts to clone his family members. The cast includes Alice Eve, Thomas Middleditch, Emily Alyn Lind, John Ortiz, Emjay Anthony, and Nyasha Hatendi. As much as I love sci-fi, and as much as I love Keanu Reeves, this looks pretty bad. The song is weird, and the whole film seems like an odd sci-fi mash-up that probably won't work. Here's the first official trailer for Jeffrey Nachmanoff's Replicas, direct from YouTube: A daring synthetic biologist who,

Film Review: ‘Reset’

Film Review: ‘Reset’
The Korean filmmaker known as Chang does the time warp again, and again, in the Chinese-produced sci-fi thriller “Reset,” a film best described as the fair-to-middling realization of a cleverer-than-average high concept. The MacGuffin here is a “data module” that contains info about technology capable of sending people way back into the past — make that back 110 minutes or so — through artificial wormholes leading to parallel universes. But that’s merely the impetus for repeated time-jumps by research physicist Xia Tang (Yang Mi), whose five-year-old son is kidnapped by bad guys demanding ownership of the aforementioned module, and who must go to extremes on two different occasions when her little boy is killed twice.

Yang Mi is impressively stressed and resourceful throughout the loop-the-loop narrative as Xia Tang repeatedly attempts to free her child from the clutches of the heavily-armed nonentities led by Tsui Hu (Wallace Huo), a tightly-focused villain whose motives are revealed a tad too late

Joe Carnahan Exits as Director of Will Smith-Martin Lawrence’s ‘Bad Boys 3’
Joe Carnahan has vacated the directing gig for Sony’s third “Bad Boys” action-comedy due to scheduling conflicts.

Sony had no comment on the exit. The studio has three possible director candidates for the Will Smith-Martin Lawrence comedy, which was titled “Bad Boys for Life” in August and pushed back to a Nov. 8, 2018 release date. Carnahan had written the most recent draft of the script.

The movie would reteam Smith and Lawrence as the freewheeling Miami narcotics detectives who starred in the first two movies in 1995 and 2003, both directed by Michael Bay. Jerry Bruckheimer is returning as producer with plot details currently under wraps.

Carnahan is developing an English-language remake of Indonesian action movie “The Raid.”

The first film, which was also produced by the late Don Simpson with Bruckheimer, grossed more than $140 million worldwide and made Smith into a star. “Bad Boys II” grossed more than $270 million worldwide.
