JasonBlum, and his BlumhouseProductions, is one of the most intriguing stories in Hollywood. Starting by producing micro-budget scary a decade earlier (which appears to be all the rage nowadays), Blumhouse Productions has started to widen its horizons, including films that do not always fit in that normal horror film mold, such as last year’s “Sleight.”
With its brand-new film, “Update,” we see that Blumhouse is moving into the brand-new “JohnWick” genre of action film. In the very first trailer, the plot is laid out. A person’s wife is killed throughout a mugging and he ends up being a paraplegic. With a brand-new, speculative innovation, he gets implanted with an AI that provides him use of his legs once again, but also some other upgrades (get it?). The remainder of the footage reveals our hero beating the ever living crap out of nameless goons in the most violent ways imaginable.As mentioned above,
“Upgrade “is plainly following in the steps of “John Wick” with a genuinely visceral fighting style that’s hyperkinetic and brutal. Except here, things tend to go to another level. If the fighting in “John Wick” is a 9 on the cruelty scale, then “Update” turns everything as much as 11.
“Update” originates from writer-director LeighWhannell, who is best known for his work writing parts of the “Saw” and “Perilous” franchises however made his directorial debut on “Insidious: Chapter 3.” Whannell plainly has a strong relationship with Blumhouse, and “Update” is yet another cooperation between the filmmaker and the production house.Logan Marshall-Green, who starred in the extraordinary film”The Invite”and the not-so-incredible “Prometheus, “plays our hero, with the incredibly cool name Grey Trace, who gets the “upgrade.” “Update” is scheduled to be launched in theaters June 1. We have the red band trailer
listed below. Nevertheless, if you wish to enjoy something with less gore and cursing, then you most likely shouldn’t see this movie anyhow, however we still linked to the green band trailer, just in case.
