Universal has released seven movie clips from their upcoming futuristic action-thriller Repo Men. Starring Jude Law, Forest Whitaker, Liev Schreiber, RZA, Alice Braga, and Carice van Houten, the film takes place in a future where you can buy replacement organs from a company called The Union. But if you can’t pay your bill, the company sends Repo Men and they’ll take back your organ without any thought to what happens to you.
As most of you know, Repo Men was supposed to be released awhile back, but for whatever reason, it got bumped. Usually when that happens, it’s a cause for concern. But I have to say, after watching the clips, I’m a lot more interested in the film as it looks pretty cool. Hit the jump to check them out for yourself. Repo Men arrives in theaters March 19.
As always, are the clips are in the player below. Once you push play you might have to watch a pre-roll ad and then all the clips will play in order. Sorry about the pre-roll, it pays for the bandwidth.
Here’s the full synopsis:
In the futuristic action-thriller Repo Men, humans have extended and improved our lives through highly sophisticated and expensive mechanical organs created by a company called The Union. The dark side of these medical breakthroughs is that if you don’t pay your bill, The Union sends its highly skilled repo men to take back its property…with no concern for your comfort or survival.
Jude Law plays Remy, one of the best organ repo men in the business. When he suffers a cardiac failure on the job, he awakens to find himself fitted with the company’s top-of-the-line heart-replacement…as well as a hefty debt. But a side effect of the procedure is that his heart’s no longer in the job. When he can’t make the payments, The Union sends its toughest enforcer, Remy’s former partner Jake (Academy Award® winner Forest Whitaker), to track him down.
Now that the hunter has become the hunted, Remy joins Beth (Alice Braga), another debtor who teaches him how to vanish from the system. And as he and Jake embark on a chase across a landscape populated by maniacal friends and foes, one man will become a reluctant champion for thousands on the run.
