Not man. Not machine. MORE.

At this point, Leigh Whannell is no doubt a household name (and face) to all horror fans, having written Saw, Dead Silence, Insidious and this year’s Insidious: The Last Key, while also starring in each of those films. As a director, Whannell recently helmed Insidious: Chapter 3, and he just wrote and directed the upcoming Upgrade.

The Blumhouse Tilt film will release June 1, 2018 via OTL Releasing, and the first official trailer has arrived today. In her review out of SXSW this year, Meredith Borders wrote that Upgrade “is a lot of goofy fun,” and the trailer most definitely reflects that. It’s home to some seriously insane violence, and it looks to be a total blast.

This is Whannell fully unleashed, and we are so here for it.

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).

Producers include Jason Blum, Blumhouse Productions (Get Out, The Purge, Insidious); Kylie du Fresne, Goalpost Pictures (The Eternity Man, Clubland, The Movement); and Brian Kavanaugh-Jones, Automatik Entertainment (Sinister 1 and 2).  Executive producers include Charles Layton (Blumhouse); Rosemary Blight (Goalpost Pictures); and Ben Grant (Goalpost Pictures).
