Walt Disney Pictures has released the first official photo for U571/Terminator 3 helmer Jonathan Mostow‘s big screen adaptation the Robert Vanditti graphic novel Surrogates (the graphic novel is available on Amazon for around $14). The sci-fi thriller has an interesting concept, but I found myself unimpressed by an early sizzle reel that was shown at the Walt Disney Showcase in September. Click on the photo above to enlarge.
The official plot synopsis follows: FBI agents (Bruce Willis and Radha Mitchell ) investigate the mysterious murder of a college student linked to the man who helped create a high-tech surrogate phenomenon that allows people to purchase unflawed robotic versions of themselves—fit, good looking remotely controlled machines that ultimately assume their life roles—enabling people to experience life vicariously from the comfort and safety of their own homes. The murder spawns a quest for answers: in a world of masks, who’s real and who can you trust?
The film also stars Rosamund Pike, James Francis Ginty, Boris Kodjoe and VingRhames. Surrogates hits theaters on September 25th 2009.
