This is the feature film directorial debut for Wally Pfister - Christopher Nolan's Oscar-winning cinematographer. Though the visuals feel like a very close relative of a Chris Nolan film, Pfister tapped Oscar-winner Mychael Danna to compose the score; so one can expect a departure in sound from his mentor's musical preferences.

Kinda feels like a Tony Scott film that looks like a Christopher Nolan film. Getting a 70s thriller like an old Michael Crichton story/film too.

Saw the trailer for this before BOOK THIEF last night.
It was the first I've heard of it, but it looked promising.
Johnny Depp going all V'Jer/Source Code when he's hooked up to some machinery.

Between the release date and the trailer, this movie just screams disappointment. It gives me the same feeling as something like The Lawnmower Man, for some reason.

LOL, I thought the same thing, also there must be a ton of outer limits, star trek, x-files ... episodes that used the same premise. Not sure why this got made in the first place, but since these types of movies hardly get made anymore, who knows, might still be fun.

The samples sound very low key, broodingly atmospheric - not at all the kind of blockbuster-score that a "Lawnmower Man"-kind of film would provoke.

I think the trailer looks much more intelligent and interesting. And the samples I like, too.

This sounds pretty awesome, very oppressively atmospheric and somehow both nonchalant and scathingly emotional at the same time. Looking forward to hearing it!

The score is very much in the vein of Christopher Nolan's non-Zimmer film scores. Very ambient, no doubt highly effective in the film.
