In just a couple of weeks’ time, we’ll find out if Luke Scott has inherited any of famous father Ridley’s filmmaking gifts. “Morgan” is a pretty modestly-budgeted film, but boasts a pretty solid cast of character actors, including our own Malaysian-born Michelle Yeoh. Premise-wise, it’s quite familiar for the sci-fi genre, what with recent highlights like “Ex Machina”. This one seems to have a touch more horror to it, not unlike the elder Scott’s first sci-fi, the genre classic “Alien”.
Here’s the official synopsis: “A corporate troubleshooter (Kate Mara) is sent to a remote, top-secret location, where she is to investigate and evaluate a terrifying accident. She learns the event was triggered by a seemingly innocent “human,” who presents a mystery of both infinite promise and incalculable danger.”
“Morgan” stars Kate Mara, Anya Taylor-Joy, Toby Jones, Rose Leslie, Boyd Holbrook, Michelle Yeoh, Jennifer Jason Leigh, and Paul Giamatti. It premieres 2nd September.
