'Awake' Trailer is Its Own Anesthesia

October 29, 2007


Clay has got it all: Terrence Howard complimenting him, Jessica Alba bathing clothed with him, a mom who for some reason hates the idea of him marrying Jessica Alba. But, wouldn't you know it, he needs some sort of undefined chest surgery that might kill him.

Such is the plight of Hayden Christensen in Awake. And as if that's not bad enough, he ends up being one of these freaks who stays awake during the anesthesia, allowing him to hear Terrence Howard and Fisher Stevens plot to kill him during surgery and steal his fortune.

Aside from the obvious issue, that it's a plot salvaged from a rejected Days of Our Lives storyline, you might be wondering how they can build a movie around a motionless protagonist. The answer to that (I think) is by sending out a ghost/surgeon version of himself to get Jessica Alba to help him.

Yeah, I don't know either. The trailer is under the cut.

NOTE: That is Fisher Stevens, right? For some reason, the IMDB doesn't list him as part of the film. And you know that if Fisher Stevens is separating himself from a project, it must be worse than the Super Mario Bros. movie, Short Circuit 2 and every episode of Early Edition.
