Warner Bros. unveils the newest trailer for the Hugh Jackman-starring ReminiscenceIn his first proper film role since 2019’s Bad Education, Jackman plays private investigator Nick Bannister. Nick has a very special occupation: He offers clients the opportunity to relieve lost memories. His life changes forever when he meets Mae (Rebecca Ferguson), leading to a passionate love affair. However, when Mae disappears without a trace, Nick must search the past to fully uncover who she is. Directed by Westworld creator Lisa Joy, Reminiscence also stars Thandiwe Newton, Cliff Curtis, and Daniel Wu.


Reminiscence was originally slated to debut in April of this year with an exclusive theatrical run. However, following numerous changes caused by the coronavirus pandemic, Warner Bros. bumped the twisty sci-fi mystery to late summer. Now expected to premiere on August 20, Reminiscence will also be one of the Warner Bros. movies to release day and date on HBO Max; it will be available to stream for one month, just like the studio’s other 2021 releases.

On Thursday, Warner Bros. debuted the official trailer for Reminiscence. This comes after Jackman shared a tantalizing teaser in February, though the new video provides a deeper look at what’s to come. From the sunken Miami where Nick has set up shop to the tech Jackman and Newton’s characters use on their clients, the full trailer plunges viewers right into the world of Reminiscence. Check it out below.

With its noir-style mystery and fascinating sci-fi concept, Reminiscence is positioned to be a breakout hit. Original sci-fi movies are a bit hard to come by these days, which can give this film an edge. Sure, it doesn’t have the backing of established IP, but Reminiscence‘s intriguing plot, the combined star power of the cast, and Joy’s Westworld chops make for an appealing mix. This full trailer does a good job of establishing the world Joy has created (doubly so, as she’s also the sole writer), and it paints a compelling mystery. Just who is Mae, and what is she mixed up in? Audiences will find out the answer in August.

Jackman remains a major star, and it’ll be exciting to see him dig into a wholly new character. Much of his recent projects have seen him play real people or previously established characters. Reminscience will give Jackman the chance to explore a universe that hasn’t been touched by anyone else. Plus, for fans of The Greatest Showman, this project will see him reunite with Ferguson, albeit in a very different position than in the 2017 musical. Reminiscence could fall apart under its ambitious weight, but this early look is quite promising.
