WATCH: First Trailer for Ryan Reynolds’ ‘Self/Less’

Focus Features has released the first trailer for Ryan Reynolds’ sci-fi thriller “Self/Less,” five months ahead of its July 31 opening.

The film is about a terminally ill billionaire, played by Ben Kingsley, who buys a chance for eternal life through an experimental underground medical procedure that transfers his consciousness into the cadaver of a younger man, played by Reynolds.

Things go well at first as Kingsley’s character inhabits the new body but problems quickly arise.

“Immortality has some side effects,” warns Matthew Goode’s character.

The film is directed by Tarsem Singh from a screenplay by Alex Pastor and David Pastor (“Carriers”).
