Ryan Reynolds' body is stolen in Tarsem Singh's Selfless trailer


It's been a few years since we've seen anything from visionary director Tarsem Singh (MIRROR MIRROR, IMMORTALS) but the trailer for his latest, SELFLESS, is finally here. Right off the bat, you may notice that the visual aesthetic of this film feels quite restrained compaired to his earlier works, but that's where the story takes over. The film follows an extremely wealthy man (Ben Kingsley), dying from cancer, who undergoes a radical medical procedure that transfers his consciousness into the body of a healthy young man (Ryan Reynolds). All is not as it seems when he starts to uncover the mystery of the body's origin and the organization that will kill to protect its cause.

The premise is pretty solid although admittedly the entire story seems to be told in the trailer. I'm hoping that we get some good character moments once the main character comes in contact with the people involved in Ryan Reynolds' past. I'm always up for a good sci-fi yarn, so here's hoping that Singh and Co. have more to this movie than meets the eye. Like a cinematic transformer. A cine-former! I'm done.

SELFLESS will be released on July 21, 2015.
