The movie I Origins, now in theaters, isn’t called that just to be clever. Writer/director Mike Cahill originally sold a film called I to Fox Searchlight, but it was too big to make at the time. So he looked at the backstory to that film and made I Origins in hopes that he’d eventually get to make I. That struggle is detailed at this link.
Now that the movie has opened in a good amount of theaters (and hopefully some of you checked it out) we wanted to dig deep into some spoilers. Specifically, how the end credits tag of I Origins (yes, there’s mind blowing, must-see Nick Fury tag on the film) would directly lead into I.

One of my favorite films of the 2014 Sundance Film Festival was I Origins, a science vs. faith character-based dramatic science fiction indie film about the possible existence of an afterlife.

You won’t even need to see the credit card that says I, Frankenstein is from the creators of the Underworld films to get that series’ vibe from this trailer.
This film casts Aaron Eckhart as the best-looking Frankenstein monster ever in a story that goes with the now-standard over-inflation of stakes. In other words, this isn’t a tale about man overreaching his capability or encroaching on God’s territory by making his own creation; it’s about the THE END OF ALL MANKIND. Oh, and the Frankenstein monster has been around for two hundred years which, I guess, accounts for the fact that he’s grown to be so good-looking.
The first trailer features a lot of CG monsters and gargoyles, and no shortage of action glamour shots. Read More »
