Trailer for The 9th Life of Louis Drax.

After surviving eight near-death accidents throughout his unlucky life, Louis Drax [Aiden Longworth] plunges off a steep cliff on his ninth birthday. While police investigate the cause of Louis’ near-fatal fall and the whereabouts of his violent father Peter [Aaron Paul], acclaimed neurologist Dr. Allan Pascal [Jamie Dornan] uses unorthodox techniques to try to tap into the boy’s unconscious mind and reveal the truth about the events that led to his condition. But as he’s drawn deeper and deeper into the mystery of Louis’ seeming ability to cheat death, the doctor finds himself falling for Louis’ mother, Natalie [Sarah Gadon]. As new clues emerge in the case, a shocking revelation changes the fates of Louis Drax and everyone around him.

Anthony Minghella was preparing a version of this film at the time of his death.

Molly Parker and Terry Chen were previously co-stars on House of Cards.

I was not sure what to expect as I had not heard too much about this film prior to watching this first trailer, and I was pleasantly surprised.

The film is a mix of psychological thriller and sci-fi. What had me worried was that I did hear that the film was originally shot back in 2014, but was shelved and will be released this year. Not sure why it was delayed but that is usually a bad sign.

There is definitely some interesting imagery in the film and the film has quite a unique storyline to work with, so lets just hope that everything comes together in a nice cohesive package that does not disappoint.
