A Hugh Jackman action-thriller? Sign me up. The 52-year-old actor stars in the first official trailer for Warner Bros. film Reminiscence.
This film is the first feature written/directed by Westworld co-creator Lisa Joy, which means it’ll probably be super entertaining and also a little confusing, because let’s be real here, what the hell is going on in Westworld?
Reminiscence stars Jackman as a private investigator of the mind named Nick Bannister.
While living on the fringes of the sunken Miami coast, Bannister navigates the darkly alluring world of the past by helping his clients access lost memories, via futuristic tech. His life is changed forever when he takes on a new client, Mae (Rebecca Ferguson), and a simple matter of lost and found becomes a dangerous obsession. After Mae disappears, Bannister fights to find the truth of what happened to her, uncovering a violent conspiracy.
So yeah, that sounds about right. Entertaining and also confusing.
Jackman explained how excited he was to work on this project, calling it “something new and original.”
He also revealed, “This is not just sci-fi—this is humanity,” which is a good sign.
The movie is set to hit theaters on August 20 and will also be available to rent on HBO Max.
