Augmented Reality Movie – Hardwired

Not sure how this one snuck up on us, but the trailer is 100% pure augmented reality.  The first video is a snapshot of all the AR corporate advertising in the movie, the second is the trailer.

The usual nod to William Gibson is contained within the main character’s name:

After a tragic accident claims the lives of Luke Gibson’s (Gooding Jr.) wife and unborn child, he is left with critical injuries and complete amnesia. A new technological breakthrough from the Hexx Corporation – a Psi-Comp Implant that’s hardwired into Luke’s brain – saves his life, but Luke soon finds out that this new technology comes with a price and that the Hexx Corporation harbors sinister plans for the new device. With the help of new allies, Luke tries to recover the memories of his past while uncovering the Hexx Corporation’s true motives.

Not much information available on the movie.  The release date has been moved a few times which is usually not a good sign for a movie.  I’ll probably see it, though if it sucks I’ll be yelling “Show me the AR!”
