Film Preview: Jumper

Posted by shkoles on February 7, 2008

Jumper is an upcoming 2008 science fiction film based on the 1992 science fiction novel “Jumper” by Steven Gould. The film is directed by Doug Liman and stars Hayden Christensen, Samuel L. Jackson, Jamie Bell, Rachel Bilson and Anna Sophia Rob. Jumper is slated for a February 14, 2008 release.

A genetic abnormality allows a young man to teleport himself anywhere. He discovers this gift has existed for centuries and finds himself in a war that has been raging for thousands of years between ‘Jumpers’ and ‘Paladins’ who have sworn to kill them.”The plot deviates significantly from the original novel, as, for example, the concept of the Paladins is not present in Gould’s book.”

Video game

A video game for the film will be made for the Xbox 360, Playstation 2, and Wii consoles. The storyline will focus on the characters Griffin and Davey as he attempts to avenge the death of his parents. Nicholas Longano of the video game publisher Brash Entertainment stated, “From the very first script read, we knew this had to be made into a game. The teleportation elements make for some very compelling gameplay.” The game will be released on February 12, 2008, two days before the film’s wide release.

Here is a preview trailer for this film which is looking to be the the number one science fiction film of 2008!
