Ah that Jude Law, he’s always stealing hearts. And whatever other internal organs you’re behind payment on.
Repo Men is slated for a 2010 release and also stars Forrest Whitaker and Liev Schreiber in a near future dystopian flick in which a company has perfected artificial organs but sends the repo men to slice you up and take back the organ if you fall behind on the payments.
The poster is relatively nifty:
And here’s the red band trailer. Sorry that so far it’s only available with a age check at the start, thus ensuring that the only minors who can see it are liars, but Santa knows kiddies, he gets updates in real time and the sleigh is taking off in a few hours.
I’ve got mixed feelings here. On the one hand, repossessing artificial organs by killing people seems like the sort of eye-rolling counterproductive evil corporate behavior normally found in science fiction written by twelve year-olds and the overall story seems a standard bad-guy-turns-good-because-now-he’s-a-victim action fest. On the other hand, it’s got some heavy names that have been known to show up in particularly thoughtful films.
