Amazon has released a new trailer for the science fiction / thriller bliss. This is the latest from filmmaker Mike Cahill (Another earth) with Owen Wilson (Wedding crashers, The royal Tenenbaums) and Salma Hayek (From dusk to dawn, Like a boss) lead the cast. As we can see from the trailer, this seems like a mind-boggling love story that blurs the lines between simulation and reality.
The trailer wastes little time in casting doubt on what is real and what is not, as Owen Wilson’s tells Greg a memory that feels real to him, even though he’s not sure if it is. He then has a busy day at work before literally meeting the woman of his dreams in a bar. Things get weird in a rush when Wilson’s character realizes he’s living in a sophisticated simulation. The idea is that these tough simulations can reveal reality. As you can imagine, things are not going as planned. The whole thing looks trippy and unique. To top it off, Bill Nye appears.

Sloan Prize at the Sundance Film Festival. Cahill has directed television and directed episodes of for the past several years The magicians, Night flyer and The way. James D.
