Los Angeles, CA – August 8, 2017 – TriCoast Entertainment is excited to announce the VOD release of Adam Orton’s newest sci-fi thriller, “AMELIA 2.0” today on August 8, 2017. From executive producers MORE Productions and WeatherVane Productions, AMELIA 2.0 is the first film to tap into the genre of “transhumanism”.
Transhumanism (n) – The belief or theory that the human race can evolve beyond its currently physical and mental limitations, especially by means of science and technology.
AMELIA 2.0 combines romance, sci-fi and futuristic suspense to illustrate societies’ need and constant desire for advancements within the technological world.
As Carter Summerland weeps next to his decaying wife in a hospital bed, he is approached by Wesley Enterprises, an experimental program specializing in elongating human life.
The grief in his heart collides with his devastated mind, when he allows Wesley Enterprises to take the risk of high advancements in technology, by allowing them to download his wife’s consciousness into an android.
When Amelia awakes, she finds herself within an android that looks just like her human self … but she doesn’t feel human at all. She battles the internal question of “what really makes someone human?” while the city breaks out in a public debate over using this high-tech technology, and the extreme opposition and danger to such experiments.
AMELIA 2.0 turns science fiction into a controversial discussion by exploring the genre of transhumanism, or the theory that human life can be extended through advancements in technology and science. Many scientists and other professionals argue about the “rights” and “wrongs” of extending human life.
That’s the thing about science fiction – it doesn’t leave viewers with the thought of aliens taking over Mars or portals to different worlds, but instead, makes us question things that are unordinary, yet seemingly possible. 20 years ago, did anyone predict the self-parking cars? In 20 years, will humans be able to extend their lives through technology?
AMELIA 2.0’s all-star cast includes Ed Begley Jr. (“Ghostbusters”, “Pineapple Express”), Chris Ellis (“The Dark Knight Rises”, “Apollo 13”), Debra Wilson (“Avatar”), Eddie Jemison (“Oceans Eleven”, “War Dogs”) and Kate Vernon (“Malcolm X”, “The Last Song”, “Pretty in Pink”).
Watch AMELIA 2.0 now on: AT&T, Comcast, DirecTV, DISH, FandangoNow, FlixFling, Google, InDemand, iTunes, SlingTV, Sony (Playstation), Vubiquity, Vudu, and Amazon. Stay tuned for the DVD release!
