The slightly eye-rolling Replicas trailer.

OK, this flavortext is a little absurd.

After a car accident kills his family, a daring synthetic biologist (Reeves) will stop at nothing to bring them back, even if it means pitting himself against a government-controlled laboratory, a police task force, and the physical laws of science.

OK.  If Replicas is actually about how cloning doesn’t actually work and Keanu had to resort to necromancy in order to bring back soulless versions of his dead family, then this blurb might make sense*.   Otherwise, well, you can’t actually break the physical laws of science, except under extremely specific circumstances that stretch the definition of the term ‘brake.’  I just wanted to note that for the record.

*It might also be a better movie.  I mean, whoa: what if the corporation/government was right?  Then this becomes a movie about Keanu desperately trying to ignore the warning signs that he’s literally raising up a new generation of monsters.  “Whole thing eventually cleansed by fire” optional, but traditional.
