Tye Sheridan (Ready Player One), Lily-Rose Depp (The King), and Fionn Whitehead (Dunkirk, Black Mirror: Bandersnatch) star in Limitless director Neil Burger’s latest film Voyagers, a sci-fi adventure thriller about a crew of astronauts on a multi-generational mission across the universe who gradual descend into a spiral of paranoia and insanity. From our review,

Like the recent Cosmic Sin, Voyagers feints toward using its space setting as an opportunity for insight about the human condition, however its execution is as lackluster as that film’s sleepwalking version of Bruce Willis. Cosmic Sin tried and failed to make some kind of point about the cost of war and the sacrifices soldiers make to protect us. Voyagers tries and fails to make some kind of point about the cost of progress and the sacrifices explorers make to protect us. But Burger plays this story so straight, with no hint of humor or irony, that Voyagers also offers no surprises. The plot reveals all its beats within the first 10 or so minutes.

The Virtuoso

As the young assassin begins to track down leads, including the town’s local sheriff, he finds himself unexpectedly entangled in an romance with a local woman working at the diner (Abbie Cornish). Sounds a bit paint-by-the-numbers with an obvious twist you could spot a mile away without a sniper scope, however the trailer looks interesting enough. It’s like a movie variation of Spy Party however with Anthony Hopkins tossed into the mix, what’s not to like?
