‘Upgrade’ is Sorta Like ‘RoboCop” Meets “Knight Rider”?



Like it or not, we need comps. Everything is relatable in some context and there’s no shame in looking back to honor the greats. Leigh Whannell is about to see his directorial debut Upgrade (read our review) released in theaters June 1st and BH Tilt continues to pump out TV spots. The latest gives us a little more insight into the tech-horror-thriller, which has star Logan Marshall Green speaking to his “upgrade” in a distinct homage to “Knight Rider”. Also, with the death of his wife, and being left for dead himself, it borrows from the legendary RoboCop. Check 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).
