Doug Liman’s career has taken some interesting turns over the years. The guy who started off doing hip indie comedies like Swingers and Go, went on to in some sense redefine modern action movies with The Bourne Identity and Mr. & Mrs. Smith. I hadn’t heard much about his next project, Jumper, except that it starred Hayden “I’m Darth Vader” Christensen. Well the first trailer has finally hit the web and it was well worth the wait. Aside from the fact that they just won over every male aged 18 to 25 within the first few seconds by showing a quick clip of Family Guy, I was pretty impressed by the intensity and the special effects in the trailer. This is Liman’s first attempt at a movie with a science-fiction element to it: Christensen and other people like him have the ability to teleport or “jump” through time and space, not unlike Nightcrawler from the X-Men. We’ll have to see whether or not the story is actually decent, but as an initial premise and FX showcase, the trailer looks great. Jumper co-stars The O.C.’s Rachel Bilson and Samuel L. Jackson, and it hits theatres on February 15th, 2008.
