‘Vice’ Trailer: Bruce Willis vs. Thomas Jane vs. Robots
A sleepwalking Bruce Willis. A premise torn straight out of ‘Westworld.’ A robot borrowed from the hard-drive containing assets from ‘I, Robot.’ A blank-faced blonde dodging bullets. Thomas Jane looking like he just wants his kids back. Yes siree, the ‘Vice’ trailer has it all!
‘Vice’ is one of those movies that must take place in a distant future because there are robots walking around everywhere, but everything just looks like Mobile, Alabama. A sleepy-looking Willis stars as an Evil Science Fiction Entrepreneur who has built a resort called
Westworld Vice, where tourists can wander around murdering and screwing and robbing banks and pretty much doing whatever they want because they entire place is populated by robots. But there aren’t any cowboys. No cowboys at all. Nope, you can’t sue this production! Not a cowboy in sight!
Anyway, the local law enforcement (embodied by Thomas Jane playing a parody of Thomas Jane) isn’t pleased with this place letting the citizenry go on robot murder vacations. So when one robot becomes self-aware and escapes Murder Town, he recruits her in his fight to bring down Willis’ empire and return crime to the actual streets of America, where it belongs. Somehow, the entire future of the world hangs in the balance. Or something.
‘Vice’ is an actual movie that is actually coming to theaters in 2015. It is one Tom Berenger away from going straight to DVD. It looks terrible. We can’t wait to see it.
Here’s the official synopsis:
Julian Michaels (Bruce Willis) has designed the ultimate resort: VICE, where anything goes and the customers can play out their wildest fantasies with artificial inhabitants who look, think and feel like humans. When an artificial (Ambyr Childers) becomes self-aware and escapes, she finds herself caught in the crossfire between Julian's mercenaries and a cop (Thomas Jane) who is hell-bent on shutting down Vice, and stopping the violence once and for all.
‘Vice’ will appear (before quickly disappearing) on January 16, 2015.
