I have been a big fan of Ryan Reynolds for a while, but every time I think he is about to have a stand out film and really make a mark in Hollywood, he seems to star in a flop that puts him back down the a-list a little.

He has one great film like Buried, then follows that up with The Green Lantern, nothing seems to go 100% right for the guy.

Now comes along his new film with the ever so talented Ben Kingsley also called Self/Less, a film about a very wealthy man who is dying and undergoes a medical procedure to move his consciousness to a young healthy man (in this case Reynolds).

I had heard a little about this film, but not much before seeing the trailer, but I’m intrigued to see where this ones goes. Could this be Ryan Reynolds break out film? A bit like Bradley Cooper had with Limitless?

Self/Less, directed by Tarsem Singh and starring Ryan Reynolds, Matthew Goode and Ben Kingsley is in UK cinemas on 31st July 2015.
