"Surrogates"

http://www.imdb.com/video/imdb/vi3313697305/

The new Bruce Willis movie that is coming out toward the end of the year or at the beginning of 2010.

People have started living their lives through robotic surrogates. They pretty much plug in and go to work without leaving their homes. Since the surrogates are synthetic, they can look however they want. In the trailer, there is one with blue skin. Surrogates prevent people from dying of unnatural causes and no one has ever experienced RD while linked to their surrogate. At least no one until the start of the movie.

I was thinking that this is sort of a first attempt at a transhuman movie. At least it is the only one that I can really think of.

Agreed.

My friend mentioned this to me last weekend and it sounds like a stab in the direction we are all heading. One to keep an eye on.
