trailer break: ‘Surrogates’

Take a break from work: watch a trailer…

A supercreepy world of perfect-looking robots? How would it be any different from, say, Beverly Hills?

No risk or danger? Where’s the fun in that?

So, this is like the idea that “If you die while dreaming, you die in real life” done up all science fiction-y?

I’m so not getting any kind of vibe off this: not even a bad one. This trailer makes the film look like the blandest kind of inoffensive claptrap… kind of like it’s a surrogate for itself.

I dunno if Surrogates is screening for critics. It’s a Touchstone flick, which means it’s Disney, and Disney didn’t even respond to me when I asked about screenings, which means, I guess, that I’m still on Disney’s shitlist. But no one I’ve asked has seen it yet, so either Disney isn’t showing it to anyone, or they won’t show it to anyone till late this week, just before it opens. (Which I wouldn’t have been able to make anyway, since I’m heading off to England tomorrow. Hey, maybe I’ll see it there…)

Surrogates opens in the U.S. and the U.K. on September 25.
