Warner Bros. Pictures will be bringing in all the star power this August and we're all here for it. Just two weeks following the debut of James Gunn's The Suicide Squad, the production outfit will be releasing the sci-fi thriller film Reminiscence which will mark Hugh Jackman's official acting return after two years, not counting his cameo in the upcoming Ryan Reynolds flick Free Guy.

Written and directed by Lisa Joy, one of the creative geniuses behind the hit American sci-fi series Westworld, the story of Reminiscence revolves around Nick Bannister (Jackman), a private investigator of the mind who navigates the darkly alluring world of the past by helping his clients access lost memories.

The film, which also stars Thandiwe Newton, Rebecca Ferguson, Cliff Curtis, Marina de Tavira, Daniel Wu, Mojean Aria, Brett Cullen, Natalie Martinez, Angela Sarafyan, and Nico Parker is reminiscent of another WB blockbuster Inception thanks to its clever story and trippy visuals. Speaking of, the studio released the first official trailer for the upcoming film, and to call it eerie would be a hell of an understatement. See it for yourself below:

If there's one thing we learned about Jackman through the years, it's that he doesn't let his involvement in the X-Men franchise define his acting legacy. If anything, he continues to prove that he'll never fall victim to being typecast despite the fact that he played Wolverine for 17 years. Of course, it would be too much to ask him to reprise his role after a successful run but I gotta say, it would be nice to actually see him do a cameo in the Marvel Cinematic Universe.

Reminiscence will get a simultaneous release in both cinemas and HBO Max on August 18, 2021.
