While the reaction to their HBO series Westworld has been split, there’s no denying that Lisa Joy and Jonathan Nolan are one of the hottest duos around on the small screen. While they’ve each found individual successes, Nolan often writing alongside his brother Christopher Nolan on films including The Dark Knight and Interstellar, Joy on TV shows such as Burn Notice, as a pair they’re only making their first major splash on the big screen. Reminiscence, a sci-fi film set in a flooded future Miami, looks like the kind of head trip we’ve come to expect from them.
Hugh Jackman stars as a mind detective (ooooh trippy) who must investigate the disappearance of a client he has started to become obsessed with, all in a future Miami sunken by the rising seas.
The film marks a reunion between The Greatest Showman stars Hugh Jackman and Rebecca Ferguson, who are joined by Westworld’s Thandie Newton along with Angela Sarafyan, Daniel Wu, Cliff Curtis, Brett Cullen, Nico Parker, Natalie Martinez, and more.
Joy will be making her feature directing debut after helming every episode of Westworld, which is no small feat.
Reminiscence opens in theaters and HBO Max on September 3rd!
Nick Bannister (Hugh Jackman), a private investigator of the mind, navigates the darkly alluring world of the past by helping his clients access lost memories. Living on the fringes of the sunken Miami coast, his life is forever changed when he takes on a new client, Mae (Rebecca Ferguson). A simple matter of lost and found becomes a dangerous obsession. As Bannister fights to find the truth about Mae’s disappearance, he uncovers a violent conspiracy and must ultimately answer the question: how far would you go to hold on to the ones you love?
