“Every year 21 million people go under anesthesia. One in 700 remain awake the entire time. When they planned her husband’s murder, they never thought he’d be the one.” That is the tagline which appears on the new Awake poster. How do I know this? Well, because Cinematical got the exclusive first look at it!
Awake stars Jessica Alba as the beautiful soon-to-be-wife of a very wealthy man played by ex-Sith Lord Hayden Christensen. All is going well for the young couple until Hayden’s character must undergo an open-chest operation. The procedure is risky enough, but the situation gets worse when he realizes he can hear everything that is going while on the slab! Looks like the gas didn’t work on this Jedi.
Pretty bad, huh? But there’s more! On top of all that the surgeons are planning to kill him and become rich! What a fucking bummer! Was it his wife who set this up? His mother? WHO?! We’ll know sometime next year probably, but until then enjoy the trailer over at Moviefone. Or you can check it out below.
