20th Century Fox has released the first full trailer for their upcoming sci-fi thriller Morgan. The film is directed by first-timer (and son of long-time director Ridley Scott) Luke Scott and stars Kate Mara as a corporate troubleshooter who is sent to a remote, top-secret lab to investigate a terrifying accident, where she then discovers that the scientists have created something outside the realm of human form.
Before a few weeks ago when the teaser tailer was released, I had never heard of Morgan, but it has quickly popped up on my radar. I’m quite surprised how much I liked this following tailer, as it’s pretty much a modern-day spin on Frankenstein. I really enjoy Kate Mara as an actress and I’m glad to see her getting more roles as of recent. Anya Taylor-Joy was magnificent in The Witch and I’m looking forward to seeing her take on this kind of role. And the rest of the supporting cast is really, really solid as well, led by Paul Giamatti. The trailer had some really good beats, both thrilling and horror-like. All-in-all, I’m pretty intrigued with Morgan and its premise, it looks promising.
Check out the new trailer below, and make sure to let us know your thoughts in the comments. Did it surprise you? How do you like the premise? The cast? Luke Scott’s Morgan opens September 2nd, 2016 and also stars Paul Giamatti, Rose Leslie, Boyd Holbrook, Michelle Yeoh, and Jennifer Jason Leigh.
A corporate troubleshooter (Kate Mara) is sent to a remote, top-secret location, where she is to investigate and evaluate a terrifying accident. She learns the event was triggered by a seemingly innocent “human,” who presents a mystery of both infinite promise and incalculable danger.
