Leigh Whannell’s ‘Upgrade’ Brings the High-Tech Killing Home in August



One of this year’s most downright entertaining movies thus far is unquestionably Leigh Whannell’s Upgrade, a shockingly violent sci-fi/action/horror crowd-pleaser centered on an “upgraded” man on a mission. We’ve learned today that Whannell’s latest is being released digitally on August 14, subsequently arriving on DVD & Blu-ray on August 28.

Sadly, it doesn’t look like any special features will be coming with it.

*UPDATE* via Leigh Whannell…

The film centers on Grey Trace, a technophobe in a utopian near-future when computers control nearly everything – from cars to crime-surveillance – who is paralyzed in a freak mugging.  But when a billionaire technologist offers him an experimental paralysis cure – an implanted computer chip called STEM – Grey finds that the chip has a voice and a mind of its own.

Logan Marshall-Green (Prometheus, Snowden, The Invitation) headlines the film as Grey Trace and is joined by Betty Gabriel (Get Out, Purge: Election Year)Harrison Gilbertson(Picnic at Hanging Rock, Hounds of Love)Simon Maiden (The Dressmaker, Killer Elite) and Benedict Hardie (Hacksaw Ridge, The Light Between Two Oceans).
