The first trailer for Bradley Cooper’s trippy, druggy drama Limitless , previously titled The Dark Fields , has debuted online.
Following the life and times of a down-and-out writer with a serious case of the block, Cooper’s latest sees the bumming wannabe author offered a life-changing drug that could, well, change his life.
When a new pill is popped, it opens the brain up, allowing the taker to use his or her entire brain - and not just the usual 20%.
Soon, Cooper’s writer is having the time of his life, both working and playing hard. But is it all as good as it seems?
Check out the trailer below…
Wait, a glossy Hollywood film that advocates drug-taking as an acceptable – nay, beneficial – way of living your life?
Naturally, there are consequences, which should give Cooper the opportunity to prove he’s more than just a comedy joker or an action beefcake. The ratty wig certainly convinces.
Most exciting, he’ll be sharing scenes with one Robert De Niro – which should ensure that even if the premise is a little bit déjà vu, there should be some powerhouse acting on display.
Limitless opens on 18 March, 2011.
