Surrogates, which will be featured in a special Disney panel at NYCC, is set in the future where no one leaves their home. So instead of going out for a jug of milk yourself, you'd send out one of Virtual Self's life-sized robot creations. And it just so happens, your lovely robotic avatar is the idealized version of yourself. Willis plays a cop who has to leave his house for the first time in years, to investigate the serial murder of Avatars.

Update: Check out The Surrogates viral site for Virtual Self Industries at Choose Your Surrogate (thanks for the tip Slashfilm).

DISCUSSION

Evil? VirtualSelf wasn't evil! The results might have been isolationist and double-plus-ungood, but the company itself wasn't evil. Not to begin with anyways.

The guys destroying the robot selves... they weren't necessarily evil either, although my sympathies were not particularly swayed by their methodology.
