Marina Antunes [Celluloid 09.30.10] movie trailer news scifi

It's not the first time we've seen a film where designer babies are part of the plot but so close on the heels of news that designer babies are a thing of the present, Jim seems a little too close to home for comfort and much more a part of the present than the future.

Jeremy Morris-Burke's film connects two stories. In the first, Jim, a man whose wife has died and who has pretty much given up on life, decides to take himself to a biotech firm with his wife's eggs. The plan: to bring some sort of normalcy to his life. In the second, vaguely related story, we're introduced to Niskaa, “the leader of a group of genetically modified beings, who controls a race of worker clones in a super-industrialized, post-human Earth. As he tries to restore his decrepit empire he comes face to face with a young clone that shows an unprecedented capacity for reason and empathy.”

There isn't an acutal trailer for the film but that doesn't mean that the marketing gurus aren't working overtime. There's a fairly complete website up for Lorigen, the biotech film Jim takes his wife's eggs, complete with fake advertisiment for the service. Also kicking around are three clips from the film, the last of which seems to take place in the future.

It's an interesting concept and though this appears to come from the lower budget side of the spectrum, it doesn't look cheaply made. I'm curious.

Film clips and Lorigen commercial after the break.
