What if you could upload your mind into a new brain, connected to a brand new body? Would you do it? In a new upcoming sci-fi film, Self/less, starring Ben Kingsley and Ryan Reynolds, one man sets himself to defeat his own inevitable death due to cancer by partaking in a mind uploading procedure.

The only problem is that, with his new mind comes new memories, of which places him in a dangerous situation that is spinning out of control.
I, for one, wished a sci-fi film going into both indefinite life extension and mind uploading would carry on a more optimistic viewpoint, but in terms of dystopian sci-fi thrillers, Self/less looks very interesting and will definitely be entertaining to watch. It’s clear that topics like indefinite life extension and mind uploading are growing in acceptance, due to a growing interest in them among mainstream film producers.
