This looks so good! I've always been a huge fan of Dakota Fanning and she looks really good in this film (as always). Can't wait to see it!

Similar concept (replace teleportation with telekenesis etc) but looks very much cooler. The HK location looks great, as does the cast (anything with Djimon Hounsou in it gets my vote). Colour me excited...

Doesn't look half bad. I was excited about McGuigan after Gangster No.1, but everything that came after it was a disappointment. I really hope Push allows him to flex his visual muscles once again. And a proper screenplay wouldn't go amiss, either.

Looks ok but haven't they just copied all the powers from the likes of X-Men and Heroes?

Well the action looks suitably fantastic, but the plot does feel a bit Heroes/X-Men/Wanted/Jumper derivative. Hopefully it'll be a cracker, certainly got the cast to back it up.

This looks incredible. I quite like Chris Evans, and I think Dakota Fanning is great. But it's the action that is particularly enticing. It just looks brilliant. Then again, I said that about Jumper :$

action looks real good, voice over was pretty annoying though...
Anyway i love the fact that smoking and drinking are just as bad as violence these days

Yep, looks like the TV show "Heroes" (which I love). I just hope it is better than the film "Jumper" (disappointing).

I really lost faith in Heroes after season 1 and this looks like a good replacement.  Count me in.

hmm jus seen the trailer..not too impressed im afraid, very very Heroes like as mentioned by others, almost a transition to the big screen.. Lets hope the storyline, sci fi effects, the location in HK with Chris Evans and Dakota Fanning can save this film from being another people with powers clone of a movie going down the drain??

It looks like a pretty decent film. Chris Evans is always a nice charismatic actor and looks like he provides a nice characterisation here. Fanning as she has grown somewhat comes across as less creepy.

Like the looks of this, Fanning is always great to watch even when she plays an annoying little brat, agree we've seen this all before but it's the new generation of action film i think, instead of having guns that dont run out of ammo and guys and girls that keep going even after being shot, make em super, it just open the door all the way and starts to climb the stairs.

And the first two series of Heroes (this third is getting quite good - although it still as 'The Worst Actress in THE WORLD' Ali Larter in it.
This looks like a perfect blend of Heroes and Jumper - and Djimon is just as cool as Sam Jackson.

Loved the Movie-Con footage, except the sound of the screamer things, ouchies, but that trailer makes it look even better.

...The fact that you're already predicting this as any sort of hit kind of negates the whole 'sleeper' aspect.

Can't be a sleeper if you see it coming.

I agree, but it looks like Chris Evans is going to get typecast as a super person. How old is Dakota Fanning?

dunno why empire is raving about this or why some people are showing such faith in it. doesn't look like anything special- sort of thing you'd sit through if it was on, but we've seen it all before. goofy premise, lots of sfx, terrible dialogue, completely devoid of characterisation... i wonder if the crunch will affect the production of these big budget so 'n' so's. be interesting to see

Sci-fi light/comicbook premise, cribbing off Heros: check!

Pusedo-philosophical posturing, cribbed from Matrix: check!

Shady government agency with ridiculous name (cribbing off...everything that's ever gone before): Sound Off like you gotta pair!

Stage is set for lashings of CGI and silly gunfights: OHHHH YEAHHH!

Bet this movie wont have Morgan Freeman saying motherfucker, though.

Yawn.

Hmm - I like to give every film a chance before dismissing it, but I do find this hard to get excited over. We have seen the basic premise far too many times now - especially with Heroes. Matrix, Jumper, and of course X-Men. Still haven't dismissed it - but this is not original by far, I started feeling the strain with Wanted to be honest. A good film is still a good film, and I think I might end up seeing it, but as for the write up seems contrary to the trailer.

I feel really sorry for the writer director if he created this years ago and during that time Jumper, Wanted and Heroes have stolen his thunder. Unfortunately an original idea can be lost if you don't have immediate access to the film industry. I don't know if that is the case, but if it is.... ouch!

I think this looks great! I agree with you, Funk_Knight, but even when something arrives late, it can use what's gone before to improve. It's definitely on Heroes turf, but the season 3 is just more of the same decline. Wanted was trying too hard and The Matrix, well, I always thought it was good, but overrated. Empire calls this a sleeper and if it stays low profile, but could turn out to be very good indeed. Yes, it looks cheesy but when was that a bad thing with a story like this? Heroes could do with a big chunk to lighten it up a bit round about now.
