Upgrade is a thrilling cyberpunk vision of the near future from Aussie genre maestro Leigh Whannell (creator of Saw and Insidious) and Blumhouse Productions (Get Out, The Purge).
After his wife is killed during a brutal mugging that also leaves him paralysed, Grey (Logan Marshall Green) is approached by a billionaire inventor with an experimental cure that will “upgrade” his body. The cure – an Artificial Intelligence implant called STEM – gives Grey physical abilities beyond anything experienced and the ability to relentlessly claim vengeance against those who murdered his wife and left him for dead. The results are both bloody and unexpected.
MA15+ Upgrade will premiere at the Sydney Film Festival, and then be on wide release in local cinemas from June 14.
