Marjorie Prime trailer finds android Jon Hamm a little too real

A dead husband is revived, kind of, in the trailer for Marjorie Prime

The trailer for Nadja and Experimenter director Michael Almereyda’s Marjorie Prime has arrived, in which a family is both comforted and unsettled by an AI representation of the dead paterfamilias (played by Jon Hamm). Check it out below:

“In the near future, a time of artificial intelligence: 86-year-old Marjorie (veteran actress Lois Smith)—a jumble of disparate, fading memories—has a handsome new companion (Jon Hamm) who looks like her deceased husband and is programmed to feed the story of her life back to her. What would we remember, and what would we forget, if given the chance? Also starring Geena Davis and Tim Robbins, MARJORIE PRIME is based on Jordan Harrison’s Pulitzer-nominated play, exploring memory and identity, love and loss.”

There’s also a new poster for the film, via IMPAwards.

Marjorie Prime is released in the US on 18 August. No UK release date has been announced. Read our review from Sundance London here.
