Trailer Watch: Ben Kingsley and Ryan Reynolds Switch Bodies in a New Sci-Fi Thriller

Goodness knows we don't need any more convoluted and pointless science fiction films right now (I'm looking at you, Transcendence). so let's hope that this isn't yet another one to add to the pile. SELF/LESS, starring Ben Kingsley and Ryan Reynolds and directed by Tarsem Singh (Mirror, Mirror, Immortals), is described as a "psychological science fiction thriller" that seems to use the well-worn "playing God" trope (you know how much I love that). More in the synopsis:

In this provocative psychological science fiction thriller, an extremely wealthy man (Academy Award winner Ben Kingsley) dying from cancer undergoes a radical medical procedure that transfers his consciousness into the body of a healthy young man (Ryan Reynolds). But 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.

Eh, I guess we'll have to wait and see how the drama will all unfold. In the meantime, watch the trailer:

What do you think? SELF/LESS hits theaters nationwide this summer.
